An Effective Material for Weight Management

March 4, 2008

Svetol, a water-soluble extract of decaffeinated green coffee beans, can reduce the body mass index (BMI) and increase the lean mass to fat mass ratio. According to data compiled by the Naturex Actifs Innovants department, Svetol works as a fat burner by decreasing the glucose intestinal absorption and by inhibiting the glucose-6-phosphatase (G-6-Pase) in the liver.

The first approach is the inhibition of glucose absorption from the digestive tract. A 400-mg Svetol supplementation per day for 40 days significantly reduces the post-load glyceamia after an oral glucose tolerance test, without any change in the pre-load glyceamia. Svetol has also been demonstrated to significantly inhibit G-6-Pase, hepatic enzyme permitting glucose release from the liver. The decrease of intestinal glucose absorption and the inhibition of G-6-Pase both conduce to a blood sugar concentration regulation.  More info: Karine Nardon at Svetol,  active.ingredients@naturex.com, (33) 553-61-81-00, www.svetol.com
