FucoTHIN is a supplement pill that is marketed as a fat burner. The FucoTHIN website says that the drug results in thermogenic reactions without having an impact on the central nervous system. It also states that side effects from this supplement do not include the drowsiness or jitters that are all-too common in other diet medications. It claims to be able to enhance the metabolism without resulting in an increased heart rate.
There are two main active ingredients in the proprietary blend that makes up FucoTHIN. These are fucoxanthin and punicic acid. FucoTHIN also contains other ingredients such as pomegranate seed oil, palm oil, glycerin, and purified water. The FucoTHIN website says that the primary active ingredient is one that is extracted from certain kinds of seaweed. It is a type of carotenoid (which is a form of antioxidant) which helps to protect the body’s cells from the damage that can be caused by free radical oxidation. The second active ingredient, punicic acid, is extracted from pomegranate seed oil and one study has shown that it can assist in the elimination of fat cells.
FucoTHIN is manufactured by Garden of Life, which claims that the supplement has between two and five hundred times more fucoxanthin than regular seaweed. That being said, each pill of FucoTHIN is 200mg and 5mg of that consists of fucoxanthin. Other ingredient quantities are not provided by the manufacturer.
The manufacturer holds to its claims that FucoTHIN causes significant results for losing weight. That being said, there is little-to-no research offered by the company that shows that the drug has some impact on fat reduction or weight loss. Though they do claim to have held some research for their product, they have shown only studies that tested the pill on rats and mice. However, they have never published any studies testing the drug on humans. They do make some claims that human studies have been performed over sixteen weeks on an 1800 calorie diet, but these results have not been published. This unpublished research was performed by Russian scientists in Russia, though the drug manufacturing company is an American one.
A study performed in Japan demonstrated that fucoxanthin cannot be easily processed by the body, indicating that higher levels of fuxocanthin may not actually make a difference in its efficacy.
The FTC has had trouble with Garden of Life manufacturers. The FTC website states that claims made by the company are often unsubstantiated in terms of the efficacy of their supplements.
