Back by popular demand, Ann Louise welcomes Dr. Leslie Taylor, an expert on rainforest medicinal plants. Join the First Lady of Nutrition and Dr. Taylor as they take another journey into the rainforests of the Amazon and discuss a little known remedy called Avenca which is now showing incredible promise for helping people to lose weight. Avenca is a plant that grows in forests throughout the world, and for centuries it has been safely used as an herbal remedy for numerous upper respiratory ailments. Recently, however, new research has shown that along with its healing benefits, it can also prevent fats, sugars, and starches from being absorbed during digestion—the very elements responsible for weight gain. Based on Leslie Taylor’s personal research and testing, her new book, Avenca: Nature’s Secret for Weight Loss provides a complete guide to understanding how Avenca works and how it can be used to lose those unwanted pounds. Avenca’s weight loss potential may just make this common plant the biggest herb of commerce Dr. Taylor has ever written and educated people about…a real game changer!
