SENSA(R) Medical Advisory Board

“We are extremely excited to have such prestigious medical doctors on board who can share their expertise on various health and weight-loss related issues with our customers,” said Kristin Chadwick, President of SENSA® Products, LLC.

SENSA® Products, LLC, recently appointed five additional doctors to its SENSA® Medical Advisory Board, furthering the company’s commitment to helping its customers reach their weight-loss goals. The Board consists of leading medical doctors from across the country who provide independent counsel on a range of health and weight-loss related issues. Each member brings extensive knowledge of obesity and its related issues to the SENSA® program.

Developed by Dr. Alan Hirsch, SENSA® is based on 25 years of research linking human olfactory senses to appetite and overeating. SENSA® works without the restrictions of calorie counting, the inconvenience of pre-packaged meals and the side-effects of drugs and stimulants. In one of the largest clinical studies for a non-prescription weight-loss product, subjects lost an average of 30.5 pounds in 6 months with SENSA®.
