What is FucoThin?
FucoThin is herbal supplement designed to increase the metabolic rate and burn fats. It creates a thermogenic effect and at the same time it doesn't stimulate the central nervous system. As such, it is unique among herbal supplements. It contains natural fucoxanthin from brown marine vegetables combined with cold pressed pomegranate seed oil. It also includes extra virgin olive oil, gelatin, glycerin and purified water. This supplement mainly targets visceral or abdominal fat.
Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid, similar to lutein and lycopene, which is powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. Fucoxanthin is naturally found in edible brown seeds and in smaller amount it can be found in red and green seaweed. It is believed that fucoxanthin contributes weight loss. It is still unknown how it works but some studies indicate that fucoxanthin effects protein called UCP1 that increases the rate of abdominal fat burning. It seems that this carotenoid stimulates the production of DHA, omega-3 fatty acid found in oily fish such as salmon.
Studies in animals have shown that fucoxanthin decreases insulin and blood glucose level, as well, due to DHA promotion.
It is also believed that fucoxanthin has anti-tumor properties but studies in humans haven’t been conducted to confirm this.
