Fruta Planta was enormously popular in the summer of 2010 when it became the best selling weight loss product on Amazon.com for several weeks, selling millions of boxes to dieting Americans.
That popularity was short lived as the product was quickly banned by the food and drug administration after it was determined that all Fruta Planta was being imported from China and contained a dangerous blend of illegal drugs including sibutramine.
American Generic Labs has since acquired the brand and with a little help from its chemical engineering group has recreated Fruta Planta using GMP (Good manufacturing practices), and the same natural ingredients that made Fruta Planta a huge success.
Importing herbal products is always a risk, and the American public learned quickly just how dangerous it can be. "Consumer safety was jeopardized in order to increase profit margins and there was really no need to do so." Fruta Planta is a natural blend recognized by Chinese medicinal experts for years, The only problem was that the ingredients were too expensive for a product that was selling for as little as 5.00 a box, thus, shortcuts were taken.
"We're very excited to have acquired Fruta Planta and we know the diet community will be very excited to see Fruta Planta back on the shelves."
