Herbal Magic: Magic In A Bottle?

With increasing North American obesity rates and many Canadians making New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, it’s a regular smorgasbord of waistlines for diet companies to tap into.

One such company is Canada’s Herbal Magic. Erica Johnson puts the company to the test and raises questions about its supplements, how they’re sold, and what evidence there is to back up some of its claims.

Johnson speaks with the company about the qualifications of its "personal health coaches", its food plan and the products. She also speaks with experts about what evidence exists behind some of Herbal Magic's pricey products.
