NaturalMax claims Thin-Thin phen/fen mimic increases "body's production of serotonin".

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

NATURALMAX THIN-THIN INCREASES "BODY'S PRODUCTION OF SEROTONIN," the company claims in trade promotional materials for the dietary supplement. "Utilizing an extract from the African bean, Griffonia simplicifolia, Thin-Thin increases the body's production of serotonin, naturally, instead of through chemical intervention," the trade promos state. The neurotransmitter serotonin inhibits gastric secretions, among other functions. Park City, Utah-based NaturalMax, a division of Kal, also claims that with Thin-Thin, "food cravings are reduced, replaced by a general feeling of fullness." Griffonia contains L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), the company says.
