Fucoxanthin and weight loss

Scientists discovered a new compound in marine vegetables that could be the best supplement for weight loss.

 Fucoxanthin, a natural carotenoid found in edible seaweed, possesses strong thermogenic and visceral fat reducing properties that may support a normal metabolic rate and contribute to healthy weight management.

By stimulating the expression of the uncoupling protein-1 (UPC-1) gene in the mitochondria of fat cells and suppressing fat cell differentiation, fucoxanthin promotes thermogenesis (fat burning) and suppresses lipid accumulation in white fat cells. White fat cells are those that accumulate in the liver and around the belly as a result of being overweight. Dietary fucoxanthin could help maintain healthy blood glucose and insulin concentrations.

According to Life Extension and Garden of Life, this is a safe weight loss supplements: 

  • All-natural concentrate with fucoxanthin levels 250-500 times higher than wild seaweed
  • Supports the metabolism or breakdown of fat in white adipose tissue, including belly fat
  • The first marine algae-derived ingredient with clinically proven thermogenic effect
  • Does not stimulate the central nervous system and will not cause jitters or lost sleep
  • Anyone who is seeking to manage body fat and support a healthy metabolic rate.

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet, weightlifting and cardio.  A good lifetyle personal trainer/nutrition consultant can help you to achieve a permanent weight loss.
