Garden of Life FucoThin 90 softgels
Fucoxanthin contained in fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN 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 fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN 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 fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN
In two separate double-blind placebo controlled clinical trials a total of 150 overweight female subjects were put on fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN 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 fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN lost an average of 14.5 pounds. The placebo group lost an average of three pounds. Simply put the fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN group lost significantly more weight than the group that DID NOT use fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN!
In the second clinical trial study participants who used fÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼coTHIN experienced a significantly higher metabolic rate than with diet alone and without stimulating the central nervous system or negative side effects.
