Garden of Life fucoTHIN Non-Stimulant Thermogenic for Fat Metabolism- 90 Softgels- Concentrated Fucoxanthin

Fuco THIN is a proprietary blend of fucoxanthin, derived from seaweed and a virgin, cold-pressed pomegranate oil. The blend, called Xanthigen utilizes uniquely effective means for extracting fucoxanthin from seaweed and then blends it with the highest quality pomegranate oil in unique proportions in order to create a patent pending formula.

  • 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.

What is fucoTHIN?

The Science of fucoTHIN-induced Thermogenesis

The term, thermogenic is euphemistically referred to as fat burning; because of the nature in which the process works. In thermogenesis, the metabolic rate of cells in increased, requiring them to burn; fat that the body stores in adipose tissue. This is completed when the conversion of nutrients (such as fat) to energy occurs within the cells, more specifically, inside cell structures called mitochondria.

Fucoxanthin (fucoTHIN) induced thermogenesis is non-stimulant in nature because it bypasses adrenergic (stimulatory or sympathetic) receptors at the surface of the cells that are also known t:" ":the internal organs, and specifically the double layer of fat flanking the stomach, called the omentum. (This is specifically different from subcutaneous fat which lies just below the surface from the skin and is more often deposited in the hip and thigh regions.) An excess of visceral fat leads to the pot belly or beer belly the effect, in which the abdomen protrudes excessively.

In the Japanese Study, researchers determined that supplementation with fucoxanthin dramatically reduced the abdominal fat of mice. Building upon these findings, researchers in the Metabolic Rate study noted that the fucoxanthin found in fucoTHIN directly contributed to the reduction of visceral fat in humans. It accomplishes this by igniting the production of a specialized protein gene called uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1 Gene) in white adipose tissue. (Visceral fat is made up of white adipose tissue.) The researchers believe that the UCP1 Gene stimulates the metabolism of fatty acids inside of the white adipose tissue and thereby speeds their oxidation. This metabolic process results in burning the visceral fat tissue.

How Fucoxanthin is Different:
How fucoxanthin is different from other ingredients in the weight management category:
Fucoxanthin is a clinically proven non-stimulant thermogenic.† Unlike many popular stimulant-type metabolism enhacers ( e.g. ephedra, caffeine, guarana), fucoxanthin has no effect on the sympathetic nervous system and can be taken without concerns of cardiovascular exhaustion or blood pressure deregulation.

The mode of action of fucoxanthin is such that it bypasses the nervous system and shifts energy balance from producing ATP toward thermogenesis. It occurs in the mitochondria, at the exact point where the energy becomes available for either capturing it in the form of ATP or for heat generation. Fucoxanthin does it by upregulating production of UCP- 1(uncoupling protein 1), also known as thermogenin.

Fucoxanthin has antioxidant properties that are different from other carotenoids. Unlike other carotenoids, it is active in environments with low oxygen presence (most tissues under physiological conditions have very low oxygen presence). Also, instead of donating electron, like many antioxidants, fucoxanthin donates proton. A combination of these two attributes is unique to fucoxanthin and is most likely due to its unusual chemical structure (presence of allenic bond in the carotenoid formation).

NOTE: fucoTHIN does not contain ephedra or caffeine, or host of other ingredients typically present in stimulant based thermogenic nutrition products including bitter orange, guarana, ma huang or any other type of caffeine. None of the components of fucoTHIN work by affecting the central nervous system.

NOTE: fucoTHIN has added benefits due to its nature as a caratenoid. Carotenoids are antioxidants that provide cells protection from free radical damage. Several studies have citied the antioxidant properties of fucoxanthin. In one study, the authors concluded that fucoxanthin exhibits antioxidant activities comparable to that of alpha-tocopherol (i.e. Vitamin E).
The unique process in which our fucoxanthin is derived and its concentration tested is explained in detail in each of our human studies and the researchers conducting the Metabolic Rate Study found that the pomegranate seed oil in our patent pending fucoTHIN formula increased fucoxanthin's effectiveness as a fat burner.
