Study Finds That Xanthigen Shows Promise As Weight-Loss Supplement

January 1, 2010: 06:53 PM EST
Russian and U.S. scientists report that obese women who ingested the food supplement Xanthigen-600 (300 mg of brown marine algae-derived fucoxanthin and 300 mg of pomegranate seed oil) lost a significant amount of weight during a 16-week placebo-controlled clinical trial. Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Women with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) lost an average of 12 pounds, while others lost 11 pounds. The scientists also noted decreases in waist size, body fat, and liver fat. “This product may be considered a promising food supplement in the management of obesity,” the researchers conclude.
