Natural Health Care From Down Under Poised to Make U.S. Debut

Lifestyles - Mon, 04/20/2015 - 8:55am
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Eating healthy and getting fit seem to be the mantra these days. After all, the First Lady has made childhood obesity a priority with her "Let's Move" campaign. Plus, the diet industry isn't showing any signs of slowing down, with Americans spending more than $60 billion annually, according to U.S. News and World Report.

Despite that, obesity continues to plague the U.S. and remains a serious health concern for the country. Underscoring this point is that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third or 78.6 million U.S. adults are obese, and in 2008, the last year that numbers were reported, obesity cost the U.S. $147 billion in annual medical expenses.

For those looking to lose a little or a lot of weight, choosing between lifestyle products that assist with weight management can seem daunting.

"With so many products that assist in weight management to choose from, it's difficult to know which ones will work," said Simon St. Ledger, managing director of Rapid Nutrition, producer of U.S.-made natural health care supplements that have seen huge success in Australia. "This is why we are so focused on being our customers' first choice for their health and well-being needs, and establishing that there are companies that make choice products."

Rapid Nutrition was established on the back of its proven science-based supplements, SystemLS, that are now being sold in Australia's biggest retailer (Woolworth's) but will soon be available worldwide -- including the U.S.

The best part? All ingredients, according to the company website, are 100 percent natural, organic, gluten-free and designed to support natural weight management. The scientifically formulated SystemLS includes six products that have undergone stringent testing. The formula is high in fiber, antioxidants, omega 3's, whole-food-based vitamins, probiotics and high-quality whey protein. In addition, SystemLS offers a unique weight-loss-coach phone app to provide ongoing motivation, training and support.

"We are well positioned to help more people tackle the challenge of weight management with a system that works," said St. Ledger.
