Watch this short video about how a great glass of Bioxcellent Slenbrn is made. It boosts Mr husband's energy and helped him through a physically challenging day at Gambang Resort.
I didn't try because I am expecting and also breastfeeding at the same time as stated on their official website. According to Mr husband, it tastes like a fresh berry drink. The color is slightly cloudy pink but it can vary as fresh products are used.
Personally, the drink is very easy to prepare. And Mr husband just have it before he heads out for some badminton or running. A quick way to get a great beverage to replenish his energy during immense exercise. He likes it how the taste is natural and not too sweet. One important thing to remember is that one needs to drink at least 2 litres of water to wash out toxins and to help with the fat burning process.
A little setback is that he does feel giddy for about an hour. I have clarified with their product specialist. This is harmless and can happen because increased metabolism rare. And it's recommended for him to consume half a spoon every day instead. I really like their post sale customer service who replied my queries within a few hours.
This is their official contact number.
As for myself, I am open to supplements which complies to the necessary regulations. Supplements in general are fairly safe for young healthy individuals. But remember to follow the all the recommended directions. However, for patients who have medical conditions especially lovel and kidney problems, it's best not to consume any supplements without consulting healthcare professionals.
Bioxcellent is very transparent in this respect by listing out the people who should not consume this product. This includes expecting or breastfeeding mothers, those who have migraine, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic medical illness. Be very careful when certain supplements claim it can cure illness because it's almost always untrue and a lot of permanent irreversible damage can be done.
Besides Slenbrn, Bioxcellent also has a range of other interesting supplements
-Guot Xcid (help with joint pain)
-W.line fibre(help with indigestion and constipation)
-Tripeptide Colla W. Diamond (maintain youthful skin)
-Cupplus white (for skin whitening and maintaining elasticity)
So how can one get hold on this supplement? It's not difficult to find Bioxcellent range of products because it's sold exclusively through Watson.
