Eupepsia Thin Life Rx is the newest weight loss plan to grace television infomercials. What is it and does it work? The answer is a mixed bag. The Eupepsia program claims the Paullinia cupana based product allows simple, easy, weight loss.
The mixed bag begins with the question, is it really a diet. The first statements on their website say, “No diets, no giving up food, works in 20 seconds, natural and effective.” The plan claims you can lose 15 pounds in the first month.
Generally, When Something Sounds Too Good To Be True, It Usually Is
Eupepsia Thin is a diet supplement. It is sold on the company website or Amazon.com. The product comes in thin strips designed to be placed under the tongue. Unlike a pill or capsule, the claim is, the product is absorbed quickly, for faster acting benefits.
The benefit is a suppressed appetite.
The supplement “starts working in 20 seconds”, is a reference to the fast acting ‘thin’ being absorbed.
The product website states you can continue to eat the foods you love. You won’t need to change your lifestyle or diet. There is a caveat. When used as directed.
Paullinia Cupana H.B.K synthesized
Paullinia Cupana is the active ingredient in the Eupepsia Thin. Most are not familiar with the name. They will recognize the more common name, guarana. A fruit that is native to the Amazon basin of South America.
It is the seeds from the fruit, about the size of a coffee bean, that have long been popular as a diet supplement.
The makers of Eupepsia use the word synthesized in describing the active ingredient. Synthesized when used with chemicals, refers to man made products. A second definition refers to a blending of products.
The product website refers to the guarana fruit, as a berry and that it is ‘thoroughly researched’.
Yes it is, as it’s been used for decades.
Eupepsia Thin offers a 240 page research report as a download from their website as a testament to the products properties.
Authority Nutrition, a widely respected web based health source, does not address guarana, except in an article on the dangers of energy drinks. It is cited as a herbal extract included to some energy drinks for the extra caffeine.
Dieting is serious business. It is also big business. While HealthyLivingAfter60.com does not intend to tell dieters if the Eupepsia Thin Life Rx, is good or not, we do have thoughts on diets.
Diets and how they work
Dieting involves making changes in lifestyle and food intake. With some 80% of Americans overweight, (according to the CDC) to suggest a solution is a simple supplement is disingenuous.
There are dozens of diet options. There are many different plans inside each specific strategy. Examples are diet eating plans. You can chose from NutriSystem, Jenny Craig, South Beach and a whole lot more.
There are low carb diets, protein diets, calorie counting diets and the list goes on. Even The Mayo Clinic has a plan. We wrote about.
One Thing In Common
All (nearly) diets agree on one point. To lose weight, a change must take place. That change begins with what the dieter eats. To suggest that taking supplements designed to curb appetite, but continue with the same eating habits that got you fat, does not agree with decades of studies, and the opinions of experts.
Regardless of the diet plan, dieters have to reduce sugar intake. Sugar is the enemy of the human body. A system overloaded with sugar causes a chain reaction that results in a continuous buildup of body fat.
The health risks of being overweight or obese only gets worse until sugar is reduced or eliminated.
The second ingredient to a weight loss plan is exercise. This is not to suggest a high energy gym workout is required. It means, that even a minimal workout is helpful in losing weight. The more the dieter is able to do, the better the results. Cardio workouts are not required. Exercise that fatigues muscles is what aids in burning fat.
Eupepsia Thin , or Paullinia cupana better known as guarana, is a valid weight loss supplement. The creators want the public to believe it is all they really need. It does not square with facts. To help curb appetite is valid, but the other strategies need to be a part of the plan.
Whether you are looking for a simple easy way to lose weight, or you are ready to get serious and do whatever it takes, you are to be congratulated. You have taken the first step.
It is unlikely that Eupepsia Thin can harm you. Taken in large doses, it may cause some jittery sensations. It is probably due to the caffeine. If your appetite is suppressed, the consequences could very well mean eating less. That may lead to weight loss.
Eupepsia Thin is available on Amazon.com. Amazon numbers indicate the supplement experiences nearly 1,500 sales a month. Looking at the reviews, it doesn’t fare so well. Fifty two percent of the 65 reviews are only one star. The predominant complaint is the product doesn’t work. People are still hungry after taking it.

Eupepsia Thin marketing appears to be on the “slick” side. The product uses Paullinia cupana, rather than the more popular name guarana. The product is named Eupepsia Thin. The medical dictionary gives the definition of eupepsia, a noun, as “good digestion”.
It all looks very official, but it seems more like an attempt to add value using unusual names.
There are other options for serious dieters. Some have an easier eating regime than others. Some have structured exercise plans.
As a side note. While the cost of the Old School New Body plan is hardly expensive, there is an abridged version available for free. Here is the link at Amazon.com. It only addresses the exercise program. The rest of the plan will be in the paid version when you click the book image here.
Supplements, like appetite suppressers, have a role. To suggest they will cause healthy weight loss without other efforts is flawed thinking. Eupepsia Thin may help, but if that’s all a dieter does, they will be disappointed.
