Lipid regulator from Fenfuro
Fenfuro has launched Furoslim, a weight and lipid regulator. Furoslim contains Irvingia Gabonensis, the molecule that reverses leptin resistance and improves leptin sensitivity in the brain. Leptin is important in weight management as it signals to the brain that the body has had enough to eat. This helps prevent consuming excess calories. Furoslim also suppresses the fat-converting enzyme thus reducing the amount of glucose converted to fat.
Furoslim also reduces carbohydrate absorption and increases secretion of enzymes that help in shrinkage of fat cells. All these actions help in reducing the overall fat in the body. Furoslim is safe for use and is to be had twice daily, half an hour before meals.

Milagrow unveils robotic window cleaner
Milagrow has launched Milagrow Windoro, a window cleaning robot that can clean a square meter of glass in 10 minutes. Windoro comes in two units; one is responsible for the cleaning and the other for navigation. The units are kept together by Neodymium permanent magnets that can be adjusted to suit the thickness of different windows, from 5 – 28mm. It has options of manual cleaning, using a remote control, or auto cleaning by setting it in a zigzag motion in one click. It’s a smart product that beeps when the cleaning is done and returns to its starting position. It also beeps when it needs recharging. A fully charged unit can clean for up to two hours. Windoro stays attached to the glass even when it is turned off, ensuring safety. While cleaning the glass, the robot dispenses a special detergent. Its four micro-fibre pads spin and swipe while the two units move, cleaning the window. The micro-fibre pads can be washed, reused or replaced. It is available in three colours—silver, yellow and red.
