The full name of this product is New Kenrico Enhanced Grapefruit TG -1i Easytouch – All Natural Organic – Weight Loss Detoxification Foot Pads/Patches. Sounds like pedigreed dog, which ends up being called Bob.
The footpads are an interesting concept in the weight loss category because they do not require ingestion. That means that they are suitable for a range of people with digestion problems who are sensitive to many diet pills and capsules.
How do Kenrico Enhanced Grapefruit Footpads Work?
The grapefruit pads are part of a series of detoxification products, which work through the skin of the soles—intradermally. The principle behind it is in reflexology: the pads get attached to the soles of the feet and affect all reflexology points of the feet. If you ever had a foot massage done by someone who knows acupressure, you would know how amazing this can be.
The grapefruit pad contains a high amount of pectin, a soluble fiber that reduces the rate carbohydrates enter into your system, and, as a consequence, lower your insulin production. The pads contain Wood Vinegar extract, Bamboo Vinegar extract, Loquat Leaf, Dokudami, Tourmaline, Grapefruit and Dextrin.
According to the manufacturers, the enhanced grapefruit pads contain double the amount of grapefruit than the regular grapefruit pads, and are intended for people with severe overweight problems only (25 lbs excess weight or more). Unfortunately, I did not find any customer reviews that would back up this claim.
Do Kenrico Enhanced Grapefruit Footpads Work?
