"Access Health" features I-REMOVE in Segment on "The Power of Plant-Based Supplements"

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - March 14, 2017) - I-REMOVE™ by bmiSMART™ was the focus of a special segment on "Access Health®" airing on Lifetime Television®.

"Access Health" is a nationally syndicated health and wellness series created to empower women with healthier living. "The Power of Plant-Based Supplements" centers on I-REMOVE as a viable tool to counteract the dreaded "yo-yo," where dieters lose weight quickly, only to gain it back.

I-REMOVE, is a plant-based weight loss supplement that has undergone pharmaceutical-grade clinical research, with highly favorable outcomes. Research participants lost up to three times more weight using I-REMOVE with a reduced-calorie diet, compared to those who only dieted.

The active ingredient, Litramine™, is a patented formula derived from prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus indica) and acacia gum (Gum Arabic) fibers. It's designed to reduce overall calories by helping users absorb less of the fat in foods they eat.

Litramine has been the number-one-selling weight-loss formula in Europe for the last five years. It only recently became available to North Americans when bmiSMART launched I-REMOVE in the U.S. last year.

"Access Health" host Ereka Vetrini sat down with bmiSMART executives David Mastroianni (managing director) and Holly Tully (vice president of marketing), to discuss how I-REMOVE can be an effective tool to lose weight and keep it off.

The product is uniquely positioned to combat "yo-yo" dieting because it is simple to use, offers great flexibility, and does not cause harm with ongoing use. It works in conjunction with a user's chosen weight loss plan and can improve its effectiveness and sustainability for the long term.

"It's ok to get some help along your weight loss journey, whether it's a personal trainer, a nutritionist, or a great product to help give you a little edge at the time you need it the most," said Tully. "You really want to make smart and educated choices and not be seduced by the quick-fix solutions."

"The Power of Plant-Based Supplements" first appeared on "Access Health" January 18, 2017, 7:30-8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. It will be re-aired through National Broadcast Syndication on major U.S. networks in daytime spots through June. In total, the program is estimated to reach more than 185 million households.
