I did not hear that but I would not doubt that it could have had some part in her death
Granted this is from a former employee of hers but one of her ex-bodyguards said on Inside Edition
(ok not the most reliable source either) that Anna Nicole never took illegal drugs but that she never took her prescribed meds as directed, often more than she was supposed to or on her own timetable.
In other words if it was supposed to be one pill every 6 hours she might take 3 every 2 hours.
He also said that was why she appeared out of it at some events....because she took too much of her prescription.
My fault it was six pills a day not nine.
But there's plenty of reasons why IMO people should stay away from the product.
[/quote]Trimspa no longer individually lists the ingredients. There is no way of knowing how much of each ingredient is in a single Trimspa capsule. Trimspa used to list each ingredient separately, but now the label merely indicates that there is 75 micrograms of chromium and 667.5 milligrams of an "x32 proprietary blend" containing glucomannan, cocoa extract, green tea extract, hoodia gordonii, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, glucosamine HCL, citrus naringin, and vanadium. Companies do this to protect their formula, but it makes it impossible to properly evaluate it.
Trimspa side effects may include anxiety and insomnia. Most people's cravings occur in the late afternoon and evening, however taking Trimspa in the late afternoon and evening may be too stimulating for some people and may lead to insomnia, anxiety, palpitations, and restlessness.
Although Trimspa no longer lists ingredients and their amounts individually, previously, each pill contained 125 mg of green tea extract. The total daily intake of four pills a day would provide 500 milligrams of green tea extract and 200 mg of caffeine, which is roughly equivalent to two 8-ounce cups of coffee. The cocoa extract can also be stimulating.[/quote]
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.
