Sensa For Men arrives at GNC
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — Sensa Products on Wednesday announced the expansion of its product line with Sensa For Men exclusively through GNC.
According to the company, studies have shown that women have a stronger sense of smell and taste than men. As the Sensa weight-loss system is based entirely on the senses of smell and taste, the Tastant technology has been customized to improve the efficacy for men and fit the needs of men’s senses. Utilizing the patent-pending blend of Tastants, Sensa For Men contains slight variations in potency, allowing men the ability to achieve maximum results.
The product is used as a spice that should be spread evenly over the surface of a meal, using the labeled "salty" or "sweet" sides of the shaker to feel more satisfied and full faster when eating meals. "Scents have a profound impact on weight loss,” stated Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell and Taste Research Center. “Since men and women smell differently, it was only natural to develop a Sensa weight-loss product specifically formulated for men.”
In one of the largest clinical studies ever conducted with a nonprescription weight-loss product, 1,436 participants lost an average of 30.5 lbs. in six months without changing their existing diet or exercise program, the company stated.

Report: West Coast stores selling out of potassium iodide pills
NEW YORK — Following reports of additional reactor failures at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility, natural health stores in Hawaii, Oregon and California rapidly are selling out of potassium iodide (KI) pills, a potassium supplement that can help protect the thyroid gland from radiation poisoning, FOXnews.com reported Tuesday.
This is despite assurances from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued Sunday that no U.S. state is in danger. “All the available information indicates weather conditions have taken the small releases from the Fukushima reactors out to sea away from the population,” the agency stated. “Given the thousands of miles between the two countries, Hawaii, Alaska, the U.S. territories and the U.S. West Coast are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity.”
The Wall Street Journal also reported that the supplier Anbex has sold out of its entire supply of 10,000 14-tablet iOSAT packages (containing 130 mg of potassium iodide) on Saturday. A message on that company’s website now reads: “Notice: As of March 14, 2011, Anbex is out of stock of iOSAT. New product expected by April 18, 2011. … iOSAT received its approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1982, and is the only full-strength tablet for radiation blocking [that] may legally be sold in the [United States].”
