Fat Shrinking Pill Gives You ‘The Thin Within'
Shields-Michel – Healthy Living Article
It has become part of the American dream: the quest
to be thin, or at the very least, thinner. Some blame it on the
fashion world or the starving artists who grace television and movie
screens, but the real culprit may actually be the great American diet
of too much fat and too little exercise. According the National Center
for Health Statistics, as many as two-thirds of American women are
either overweight or obese. Adding insult to weighted injury, women
also tend to carry excess pounds in the hips, thighs and middle, areas
of the body that may actually make a bigger impact on your health than
you might think. It’s known as the dreaded belly fat.
Most of the fat cells under the skin are called
subcutaneous fat. It’s the fat you can actually grab with your
hand. There is also some of this type of fat in the stomach but most
of the fat in the abdomen, or belly, is called visceral fat or organ
fat. It is packed between internal organs and is composed of adipose
deposits (more on this shortly). In the average person, approximately
10 percent of total body fat is visceral. In the obese, nearly 25
percent is visceral. As we age, visceral fat also increases.
While unsightly, this belly fat is also likely to
cause the inflammation that leads to diabetes and heart disease.
Researchers at the Washington University Medical School in St. Louis,
Missouri have studied both subcutaneous and visceral fats, the latter
of which appears to be more active and thus more dangerous. It should
be noted that visceral fats are almost impossible to study while in
the body, though it is also difficult to remove surgically. However,
when analyzing the blood that runs through visceral fat, the
researchers found it was rich with an important inflammatory molecule
called interleukin-6 (IL-6).
The high levels of IL-6 correlated with concentrations of an
inflammatory substance called C-reactive protein (CRP) in the body.
High CRP levels are related to inflammation; chronic inflammation is
associated with insulin resistance, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and
atherosclerosis, among other things. This may help explain how
visceral fat can lead to inflammation and other metabolic problems.
And by contributing to inflammation, visceral fat cells in the abdomen
may be doing even more than that: there is growing evidence that
inflammation plays a role in cancer, and in aging.
In a study published in a 2004 issue of the New
England Journal of Medicine, 15 obese women with excessive belly fat
were studied both before and after abdominal liposuction. Although
large amounts of fat were removed, there were no health benefits. Why?
Because to truly get rid of bad fat and lose weight, you have to eat
less and exercise more. It also helps to find a good weight management
supplement, preferably one with fucoxanthin that excels at supporting
the body’s healthy ability to burn this type of fat.
Fucoxanthin is the brownish pigment found in
Japanese brown seaweed. It conducts photosynthesis and exists at
high levels in several different types of brown seaweed, including the
type of kelp used in traditional Japanese miso soup. This kelp, known
as wakame, is widely consumed in Japan. There are also kelp “forests”
found in abundance along the California coast, and may be particularly
interesting if the kelp can be developed into effective anti-obesity
Here’s how it works: by stimulating a protein known
as UCP1, fat is oxidized and converted to heat energy. Found in white
adipose tissue, it may be particularly effective at shrinking
oversized bellies because white adipose tissue provides heat
insulation, mechanical cushion and a source of energy. Too much puts
strain on organs and can lead to disease. Fucoxanthin represents the
first time a natural food component has been shown to reduce this
tissue by targeting this particular protein.
FucoTHIN represents a stimulant-free way to lose
Many of today’s over-the-counter weight loss
medications contain unnatural stimulants. You’ve no doubt heard
about Ephedra, or ephedrine. It’s a common ingredient in many weight
loss products, often combined with caffeine and aspirin. Called an
E/C/A stack, it’s a little bit like taking speed. It suppresses the
appetite, thus leading to weight loss, but the side effects can be an
accelerated heart rate, insomnia, elevated blood pressure and more.
Too much can be dangerous and even fatal. Guarana, from the seeds of a
Brazilian plant, is a stimulant with high amounts of caffeine, and
might have side effects such as nausea, dizziness, insomnia and
anxiousness. Kola Nut is the active ingredient in Coca Cola and also
contains caffeine. Research has shown that while these weight loss
stimulants do work temporarily, most likely you’ll gain up to 100
percent of the weight back once you stop taking it.
A thermogenic product often contains a stimulant
such as ephedrine or caffeine, as well as other ingredients that can
decrease fat absorption and/or increase muscle mass. Many claim that
thermogenics increase your metabolism but the only true way to do this
is by exercise. What you need is a non-stimulating, thermogenic
supplement that supports a healthy metabolism that breaks down fat
and helps you lose weight the natural way. You need FücoTHIN, the
non-stimulant thermogenic with fucoxanthin, from Garden of Life.
The thin within
FucoTHIN is a natural, whole-food based supplement made with a
proprietary concentration of fucoxanthin combined with pomegranate
seed oil, for a patent-pending formula that is naturally thermogenic.
FücoTHIN also supports the metabolism or breakdown of fat in white
FücoTHIN is cultivated from unique strains of Undaria (Wakame)
and Laminaria (Kombu) grown under closely controlled conditions in the
pristine waters off of the Canary Islands. The seaweed is harvested at
an early life stage under conditions of varying light intensity to
produce fucoxanthin levels that remain active, retaining its
health-promoting properties. The supplement’s phytocompounds only
become bioavailable for humans after their extraction using a process
developed by leading marine scientists. It creates an all-natural
concentrate with levels of fucoxanthin that are many times higher than
typical seaweed. It also includes other naturally occurring,
beneficial marine carotenoids and omega-3 essential fatty acids.
The other star of
FucoTHIN is pomegranate. Considered an agent of resurrection
since the time of ancient Babylonia, science now has evidence of this
precious fruit’s restorative powers. In fact, according to a new
study, the antioxidants contained in pomegranate juice may help reduce
the formation of fatty deposits on artery walls. This apple-size fruit
was known in Greece as the fruit of the dead. Ancient Persians
believed that pomegranate seeds made warriors invincible and in China,
the fruit symbolized longevity. As a super antioxidant, pomegranate is
stronger than other natural juices like blueberry, cranberry and
orange as well as red wine. When combined with the fucoxanthin of
FücoTHIN, pomegranate works synergistically, keeping the body healthy
as it burns calories.
These two main ingredients of
FücoTHIN packed into one neat little pill the size of a pearl.
When you take three a day, each one with a full glass of water, along
with eating a healthy diet and maintaining an exercise program, you
might just achieve the lasting weight loss you’re seeking. And find
the thin within.
FucoTHIN, we hear from industry insiders, is moving
out of stores fast. It’s the latest in thermogenic weight loss
supplements. A whole-food supplement with Japanese brown seaweed as
its main ingredient may be the key to healthy weight loss—and
consumers are definitely warming up to this product.
Note: According to recent fucoxanthin
research studies, the saturation point where weight loss starts
occurring is approximately 5 to 6 weeks. It is important to use
consistently during this saturation period, as directed, to start
obtaining successful results. We suggest ordering the FucoTHIN 180
size, as this provides a 2 month supply. Please add this note to the
