Fucoxanthin is a type of carotenoid found naturally
Fucoxanthin is being explored for weight loss to naturaly
increase metabolic rate.
Japanese researchers have found that fucoxanthin (isolated from
wakame) promotes the loss of abdominal fat in obese mice and
rats. Animals lost 5 to 10% of their body weight.
Although it's not fully understood how fucoxanthin works, it
appears to target a protein called UCP1 that increases the
rate at which abdominal fat is burned. Abdominal fat, also
called white adipose tissue, is the kind of fat that surrounds
our organs and is linked to heart disease and diabetes. Fucoxanthin
Plus also appears to stimulate the production of DHA, one
of the omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon.
Because there hasn't been research on fucoxanthin in humans,
the possible side effects aren't known.
People shouldn't consume large amounts of wakame or other types
of seaweed as a source of fucoxanthin. Seaweed is rich in
iodine and excessive consumption may result in iodine poisoning.
High levels of iodine can interfere with the function of the
thyroid gland. Also, consuming excess amounts of iodine-rich
foods isn't recommended if there is a known allergy or hypersensitivity
