As I’m sure you know by now, I trudge through the online world on a daily basis in order to find out about new products, services and news into the world of law and divorce. Last week, I noticed a new product that claims to be able to cure the recently divorced of anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and even loneliness: the divorce pill.
After viewing the relevant sire, I initially concluded that the product was a hoax and went about my day. I have since discovered, however, that this is a genuine product being actively marketed in the US. I usually prefer to be diplomatic within my articles, but, to be frank, this particular product just makes me laugh.
You see, whilst this product is no doubt being marketed by heinous individuals intent on exploiting the weak and needy – something that I am repulsed by – I simply do not believe that anyone would believe that the paid of divorce can be eradicated or even eased through the capsules that are found in a gaudy purple and green bottle.
Not that that’s stopping its owners from trying to peddle their wares, however. Their website contains a number of testimonials from satisfied customers (actors) who claim that the Divorce Pill has “turned their life around. ” The FAQ section even claims that happily married people who are suffering from stress could benefit from the Divorce Pill. In all honesty, they could.
The tablets are entirely herbal and contain well known ingredients such as St John’s Wart and ginseng. Both of these – and the other ingredients- are all known to increase serotonin and energy levels, all of which could help those suffering from depression following a divorce yet I still find this product to be highly unpleasant.
You see, other products which are specifically marketed as herbal remedies for depression are not only far cheaper, they also avoid the sort of exploitative marketing practices that are being utilised by the purveyors of the Divorce Pill. The owners of this company are specifically targeting a vulnerable portion of the population and charging an excessive price for a product that is, in all honesty, no different to several cheaper alternatives that do not claim to assist with divorce relates stress only.
So, if you’re feeling down following a divorce, think twice before ordering a batch of Divorce Pills.
