Unique from other health and wellness products on the market. It all began with Choleve, our proprietary blend of fermented tea extract for cholesterol reducing purposes. During our clinical trials, we discovered Choleve did more than just reduce cholesterol… it actually caused weight loss as well! With this data, our team set out to find a simple way to add this natural ingredient into people's everyday lives. This gave way to the MinusCal products.
The Baby Toon
The Baby Toon is a combination of a baby spoon and a teether all in one. The unique patented design features a rectangular body making it easy for babies to grasp and self-feed. There are no sharp edges and from every angle it limits how far it can go into a baby's mouth. The Baby Toon is made in the USA with 100% soft silicone, is gentle on babies gums, and great for teething. And....most amazing of all, it was invented by a seven-year-old after entering her school science fair.
