ULTRA • GREEN TEA • CAFFEINE FREE

These core products contain ingredients clinically shown to help fuel your weight loss efforts.* To maximize the results of a healthy diet and exercise routine, pair up with Stage 1 Metabolife® products.

BREAK THROUGH • EXTREME ENERGY

These products are designed to take you beyond initial weight loss.* There are various issues that people experience once they start losing weight. For some, in response to weight loss, your body may go into survival mode, thus signaling your metabolism to slow down. For others, you may find that decreased caloric intake during dieting may sometimes make you feel fatigued. Metabolife® created Stage 2 products to address these issues to help you achieve your weight management goals.*

Sometimes when people start a diet program, it takes a while before they are able to find a balanced diet with the right calories and nutrients. Taking a multivitamin is a great safety net to ensure that you are not deficient of any needed vitamins.

Metabolife® always recommends pairing our products with a healthy diet and exercise program. We are committed to your health and know that the benefits of healthy eating and exercise go far beyond weight loss.

Find out how Metabolife® can support your weight loss goals here with some tips inside the MLifeSupport section.

There are a few key changes that we have made to help improve certain Metabolife products and the Metabolife program.

• The two stages of Metabolife® products help you to select the right product for your stage in weight management

• Metabolife Ultra®, our most popular product, has been improved and now includes Co-enzyme Q10, which delivers sustained energy without increasing caffeine levels.*

The book is written by Michael J. Ellis, one of the original founders and a former CEO of Metabolife International, Inc., the company which for many years owned the Metabolife brand. Mr. Ellis’ book has no direct relation to the current Metabolife brand, which under the new ownership of ISI Brands since 2005 is a top consumer source for safe and effective weight management products, all ephedra-free. Today, Metabolife products, made and sold by ISI Brands, are the newest science and contain no ephedra. Consumers can trust in the safety and efficacy of Metabolife products including: Metabolife Ultra, Metabolife Caffeine Free, Metabolife Green Tea, Metabolife Extreme Energy, Metabolife Break Through and Metabolife AquaSlim.

Today’s highly effective Metabolife products have been formulated and are singularly focused on providing consumers with the best possible weight management solutions. The Metabolife line includes specialized formulas for weight loss, including Metabolife Ultra, and a new patent pending, clinically tested formula shown to increase metabolism for at least 8 weeks after initial weight loss to help continue your weight loss success, Metabolife Break Through. The Metabolife brand today, is not a part of the continuing debate between Mr. Ellis and the regulators over ephedra. Metabolife products are made from the finest ingredients, all recognized as safe by scientific and expert review. Today’s ephedra-free Metabolife products are the best ever and available online, and in supercenters, drugstores and fine retailers across America.

Metabolife 356 is no longer manufactured, and in fact was never manufactured by IdeaSphere Inc. Metabolife 356 was an ephedra product that at one time was manufactured by a company called Metabolife International Inc., which stopped making the product in December 2003. The FDA subsequently banned products containing ephedra in 2004.

IdeaSphere has never sold any products containing ephedra. Since there were also a number of very high-quality Metabolife products that did not contain ephedra, however, IdeaSphere purchased substantially all of the non-ephedra assets of Metabolife International Inc. in late 2005. Since that time, IdeaSphere has continued to manufacture and sell a full line of non-ephedra Metabolife brand products.
