DETROIT — A weight-loss supplement developed by a pair of Wayne State University professors has gained distribution through Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, ArtJen Complexus announced Monday.
The new diet aid is Mirafit, an all-natural, stimulant-free weight-loss supplement derived from corn fiber, which does not contain allergens, the company added.
Each Mirafit tablet taken with a meal can safely bind and remove 9 g of dietary fat or 81 fat calories, resulting in a reduction of approximately 3,500 calories per week, or the loss of one to 1.5 lbs of body weight per week, ArtJen claimed.
"Obesity and related medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and strokes have become epidemic," said Catherine Jen, one of the principals of ArtJen. "As a novel research breakthrough with no unwanted side effects, Mirafit has the potential to make a critical difference in body weight and blood lipid management."
