GelStat Corporation Launches Chews 2 Lose, Its New Appetite Suppressant Gum

Chews 2 Lose Targets an Estimated 75 Million+ Dieters and Is Compatible With Any Weight-loss Plan

PALM CITY, FL--(Marketwired - April 29, 2014) - GelStat Corporation (PINKSHEETS: GSAC), a company engaged in the research, development, marketing and branding of innovative Over-the-Counter (OTC) consumer healthcare products, is pleased to announce the launch of Chews 2 Lose, its natural, sugar-free appetite suppressant gum with the name that says it all. The product is initially being offered direct-to-consumers at our website www.Chew2lose.com.

In recent trials of almost 100 consumers, we found that people's appetites were suppressed for up to 4 hours with no negative side effects. The average user reduced their calorie intake dramatically and binge eating was almost entirely eliminated, hence the brand's appropriate and catchy slogans of "Chew more... eat less" and "Beat the cheat" with this exciting new gum. The company went through numerous iterations to create the perfect flavor and chew-ability and has already started positioning the brand as the perfect "crutch" to help consumers take back control of their eating regardless of the diet plan they're on to prevent between or after meal snacking and binge eating.

Larry Gershman, Gelstat's CEO, said, "There are over 200 diet plans in the U.S. marketplace alone and Chews 2 Lose fills a huge void by being the ultimate support product for the 75 million people on a diet who constantly go off their plan by eating between or after meals; hence, consuming more calories. Chews 2 Lose has a proprietary blend of proven appetite suppressing herbs and vitamins, including the rare South African Hoodia Gordonii (used by the African bushmen for centuries to quell their hunger when they go off hunting for days in the bush) and 5-htp (which triggers the release of mood enhancing Serotonin to relieve hunger pains)... making it one of the most effective products in the market today. The Company is just now starting to present the product to major retail outlets and has already launched an engaging direct to the consumer website www.Chew2Lose.com. Expect to see a number of exciting new flavors and line extensions in the coming months as the brand takes hold in the marketplace!"
