Rubedo is a weight-loss product that claims:
Rubedo Lifestyle Weight Loss System
• Lose Weight Fast
• Reduce your appetite
• Increase your fat burning
• Look and feel great
Mmmm…. Really? There is enough to make one not believe these claims and argue that this is probably another weight-loss scam.
How can I say this with such certainty?
The website states:
Rubedo is a powerful fat burner and appetite suppressant. The weight loss results achieved with Rubedo are fast and easy so that you can look good and feel great all the time.
Well there is no powerful fat burner or appetite suppressant in existence (except for some high risk scheduled drugs).
It goes on to say:
Rubedo is approved by the Medical Council of South Africa and is manufactured from the highest quality ingredients ensuring your total safety.
Well readers, this is a blatant lie. At best they have a receipt number confirming that documents were submitted, and this means nothing.
And then to seduce you into believing the claims for this product, goes on to state:
South Africa has recently been plagued by slimming products that are either illegal or dangerous or both. As a result legislation was introduced which required that all complimentary medication first be approved by the Medical Council prior to being made available to the public.
Well this product joins the list of the plague!!
These are the ingredients in this product:
Ingredients contained in Rubedo
and a mixture of "B" complex vitamins
If you had access to Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (Unbiased, Scientific Clinical Information on Complementary, Alternative, and Integrative Therapies), which unfortunately requires a paid subscription, you will see that there is no robust proof that these ingredients have any major effect on weight-loss!
Who are the people behind this product?
