Vitamin Supplement




Pedilean is a weight loss pill manufactured exclusively for kids. It's sold and manufactured by Klein-Becker, a company that used to price its products outrageously. 


Some of the advertising material for Pedilean says that if you’re the parent or grandparent of one of the more than 11 million obese or overweight school-aged kids in the USA, you know the embarrassment and pain this growing "Epidemic" can cause. 



Now, new hope is offered by a revolutionary, all-natural weight-control compound. It’s called PediLean: the only and first clinically effective, safe and proven weight-control ingredient designed for children and adolescent.An American company, Klein-Becker has finally made the product available. pedilean image


Only one problem exists in fact. Pedilean has not been effective and is not clinically proven. 


In fact, Klein-Becker was one of 6 companies recently forced by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to pay $3 million for making false and unsubstantiated claims about its products, one of which just happens to be PediLean, other fat burners include the weight loss pills anorex and Leptoprin. 


You can read the FTC press released. 


Considering this, let's review the miracle ingredients in Pedilean that is supposed to work so fast and .On the bottle, Pedilean is named as Pediatropin™: Proteinophallus Rivieri/Araceae (tuber) extract. Let's call it glucomannan, which is the active ingredient. 


It is claimed that Pedilean sells for about $70 a bottle, which is absolutely outrageous, because it's priced about three times over what PediLean should be but that's not unusual for Klein-Becker. 


Glucomannan is a fiber supplement that does show some promise. It seems to reduce serum cholesterol and blood glucose levels in individuals with Type II diabetes; it also seems to improve the syndrome of insulin resistance. 


One study showed almost 6 pounds of fat lost in two months - with no changes in eating habits, it also that 1 gram of glucomannan, taken with 8 oz. of water one hour prior to meals, has a significant influence on weight loss. 


That's a far cry from saying that glucomannan is some sort of miracle weight loss product for children. There's no way to say that glucomannan will have the same effect on children. Scientific studies and research are required before concluding on this. 


In fact, most people would be far better off adding fiber to their children's diet from legumes,grains,vegetables and fruits. 


Average North American consumes 15 grams of fiber daily -- 10 grams less than the minimum recommended amount of 25 mg. It's a clear fact that the North American diet is a low quality one and doesn't have enough fiber. 


It is suggested by Nancy Howarth, a specialist in nutrition from Tuft's University in Boston, that people who take 14 grams of fiber per day will probably reduce their nutritional intake by 10% in 4 months and lose about 4 pounds. 


It's relatively healthy,inexpensive and you will get dreat benefits in the long term to get your child to up his or her fiber intake.
