Xanthigen Reviews

xanthigen reviews

Xanthigen is a weight loss formula that was first created in Russia. As it is a proprietary recipe, the manufacturers have not released the ingredients list for the drug, which can appear sketchy. What is known about the drug, though, is that it contains fucoxanthin in an unknown quantity, and that there have been studies on the drug itself, which is rare for many kinds of weight loss supplement currently on the market.

Among the studies that have shown the results of the drug is “The Effects of Xanthigen™ in the Weight Management of Obese Premenopausal Women With Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Normal Liver Fat” as was published in the October 13, 2009 issue of the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism journal (Volume 12, Issue 1, pages 72-81) by Musa Abidov et al.

Within this study, the drug was examined (revealing that its ingredients also include brown marine algae fucoxanthin, pomegranate seed oil (PSO)) in terms of its impact on the body’s fat, weight, biochemistry of the blood, and liver lipids as well as the effect of the individual elements of the medicine on the resting energy expenditure (REE) within obese 151 women who are not diabetic and who have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with normal liver fat (NLF) levels. It was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of sixteen weeks in length.

What the study discovered is that Xanthigen 600/2.4mg did indeed allow for a decrease in body weight that was statistically significant, including a lowered waist circumference and lowered liver fat content. The REE increased significantly within the subjects taking Xanthigen when compared to the placebo participants.

Currently, exclusive rights to Xanthigen belong to National Bioscience Corporation. The formula for the drug is patent-pending. The National Bioscience Corporation has now brought Xanthigen to North America for sale as a weight loss supplement.

It is believed that it is the fucoxanthin content of the formula that is responsible for the weight loss results seen in the studies. For that ingredient alone, only animal studies have been performed, but abdominal fat loss was recorded in the results of rats and mice, typically losing between five and ten percent of their overall body weight. The substance is isolated from wakame, which is found in certain types of seaweed.

As of yet, it is not completely understood how fucoxanthin actually works, but it is believed that the UCP1 protein (one responsible for the speed at which fat in the abdomen is burned) is targeted by the substance. Further study is still required to determine whether this is actually the ingredient behind the results seen in some Xanthigen users and whether or not it has any associated side effects or risks – facts that have not yet been fully determined.
