Ingredient - Ascophyllum

BENEFITS:

Reduces fat absorption and helps control body weight.

 

DESCRIPTION:

Ascophyllum is a brown seaweed found mostly along the North Atlantic Ocean coasts, in Canada and in Europe.

Ascophyllum is traditionally used to help lose weight as part of a diet. Indeed, being rich in phlorotanins, this brown seaweed can inhibit pancreatic lipases, essential enzymes for fat absorption and metabolism.

Also, several studies on the short-term effects of taking alginates found in ascophyllum have shown that it promotes fullness, reduces energy requirements and thus helps with weight loss.

 

FACTS: 

Ascophyllum is sometimes called in French "The Knot seaweed" because of its long strips crossed by small knot-like bumps.

 

RESTRICTIONS AND RISKS:

Ascophyllum is completely harmless in small physiological doses and does not present any risk of side effects. However, as a precaution, its consumption is not recommended without medical advice to children and people suffering from thyroid disorders because of its high salt content. Pregnant or breast-feeding women must also have the prior authorization of their doctor before consuming it.
