HungerShield adds iced tea to the appetite suppressant mix
SCARSDALE, N.Y. — HungerShield recently expanded its diet aid, adding an iced tea flavor.
"We developed this new flavor because while customers love the original taste of lemon-lime HungerShield, the iced tea version offers the option of a slightly sweeter, less tart variety in a refreshing flavor most people love," said Dafna Chazin, HungerShield co-founder. "We believe that we will be pleasing thousands of current and new customers everywhere with this new, delicious alternative.”
HungerShield is an appetite control drink mix created by four registered dietitians. Designed to curb an appetite until the next meal, HungerShield allows people to diet successfully by reducing their desire for unnecessary snacking between meals. It is a blend of all natural ingredients including protein, fiber and probiotics and contains no artificial sweeteners.
HungerShield is naturally gluten free, and safe for people who are lactose-intolerant or have diabetes.
Each box of 28 on-the-go stick-packs retails for a suggested $34.99.
HungerShield is available at Fairway Market, Wegmans and selected health food stores, specialty stores and pharmacies across the nation, the company reported.
