Coleus is a lovely plant. I used to have Coleus plants years ago. But there is one thing to remember about Coleus. It's highly poisonous. Best to keep it away from kids (I had a toddler in those days) and pets, and handle it carefully. It also likes showers about once a week.
Imagine my surprise this AM when I was flooded with ads for coleus extract claiming it causes weight loss. I've heard of a lot of crazy schemes to lose weight but this one seems one of the more insane variety! I found out about this product because they put a bunch of ad links in the comments of one of my blogs (and since I have moderated comments - these never saw the light of day!). But curious because I was familiar with this plant and it's poisonous aspects, I visited their website.
Not sure what this group is about but you might receive mail from them (or comments on your blogs). If you have a blog, I highly suggest moderating comments - that way, comments which are inappropriate never see the light of day.
I suppose if you eat poison (like Coleus), you might lose weight but ... isn't that getting a bit uh...over the top? My suggestion is that you enjoy the beauty of the Coleus plant but keep it out of reach of animals and kids and please - don't eat it or "coleus extract". Losing weight eating something poisonous, just isn't worth the trouble. Just saying! :)
