Fucoxanthin, contained in fücoTHIN, is a compound that is found in several different types of seaweed. Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (similar to lutein and lycopene), which is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage.┼ It is the pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also participates in photosynthesis (the conversion of light into energy). While all of that makes fucoxanthin interesting, when fucoxanthin was studied in the laboratory, it revealed a quality that makes it unique.
Fucoxanthin contained in fücoTHIN® actually burns fat.┼
But it gets even better. Most fat-burning products work by creating a thermogenic effect in the body. This is almost always done by stimulating the central nervous system. Creating a thermogenic effect is good. Thermogenesis is the process by which the body generates heat (energy) by increasing the metabolism above normal. While thermogenesis is good, creating this effect by boosting the central nervous system can be very problematic for most people.
Fucoxanthin is unique because it creates a thermogenic effect without stimulating the central nervous system.┼ Fucoxanthin actually boosts your metabolism, without giving you the jitters or causing you to lose sleep.┼ Instead of the shotgun approach of boosting your metabolism by stimulating the central nervous system, fucoxanthin breaks down fat without the increased heart rate.┼
The Skinny on fücoTHIN®
In two separate double-blind placebo controlled clinical trials, a total of 150 overweight female subjects were put on fücoTHIN, the Garden of Life product that contains the patent-pending fucoxanthin formula, developed by Dr. Ramazanov. Participants followed an 1800 calorie diet and were monitored over 16 weeks. Results will vary. The results? In the first trial, the group that used fücoTHIN lost an average of 14.5 pounds. The placebo group lost an average of three pounds. Simply put, the fücoTHIN group lost significantly more weight than the group that DID NOT use fücoTHIN!
In the second clinical trial study, participants who used fücoTHIN experienced a significantly higher metabolic rate than with diet alone and without stimulating the central nervous system or negative side effects.
