FücoTHIN (pronounced few-co-thin), is a brand-new nutritional supplement that was seven years in the making. FucoTHIN can be characterized as a nonstimulant weight management supplement with a thermogenic effect for fat metabolism. In fact, fücoTHIN has shown an ability to break down belly fat by raising the body’s metabolic rate without causing jitters, an increase in heart rate, or lost sleep.
Russian researchers conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 150 obese women from Moscow that involved having the overweight women follow a meal plan of 1,800 calories a day while taking fucoxanthin or a placebo. The two key results:
- Those who received fucoxanthin lost an average of 14.5 pounds in just sixteen weeks, versus those who received the placebo pill, who lost only 3 pounds.
- Participants taking fucoxanthin raised their metabolic rate an average of 18.2 percent.
In addition, body fat loss was 11.8 pounds in the fucoxanthin group, compared to 2.8 pounds in the placebo group. That’s a 450 percent greater weight loss and 422 percent greater fat loss, respectively. The women taking fucoxanthin also received reductions in liver fat, blood pressure, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein (CRP).
What the Russian scientists hypothesized was that fucoxanthin possessed strong thermogenic—or fat-burning—properties. Thermogenesis is defined as a process in which the body generates internal heat and thereby increases its metabolic rate, which in turn requires the utilization of internal stores of energy, such as fat. Translation: thermogenesis raises the temperature of the body’s calorie-burning furnace, which burns fat. It’s the reason why hibernating animals don’t freeze to death during a long, hard winter. Their bodies spend the entire winter burning up stored fat that they accumulated during the feeding season. The same principle could be applied to humans: when stored fat begins burning up, the weight will start coming off.
Garden of Life released fücoTHIN several months ago, great news for those following the Perfect Weight America program. All the research we’ve viewed shows that fücoTHIN’s fat-burning results takes about five to six weeks to react after you’ve started taking one capsule with each meal. The effects seems to be gradual and measurable, providing a steady metabolic boost, but research suggests that by taking an advanced dosage of nine to ten capsules per day in divided doses, results could be noticed as early as two or three weeks. Either way, don’t buy a bottle and think it’s going to work right away. It takes time for your metabolism to shift.
