WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO: Sunshine Slender is a low-calorie meal replacement made up of medium-chain triglycerides, fats that, unlike other fats, are rapidly consumed and burned for energy. The use of garcinia cambogia apparently suppresses the storage of fat in the body by scaling down the conversion of carbohydrates to fat. The materials report that this product was made to make meal planning much simpler for those who are dieting.

COMMENTS: There is no solid scientific proof to compliment the manufacturer’s claims regarding the steps of the proprietary blend of medium-chain triglycerides and also other ingredients. This product is dairy-free, low-fat, high-protein, and contains 35 percent of the Daily Value for all the nutritional requirements listed except the last five.
