Science behind Fucoxanthin
Fucoxanthin has been prove to regulate blood sugar.
It is is a chemical present in brown algae, which has become a popular supplement. Some of its great benefits include improved metabolism, increased fat release, better thermogenesis, weight loss, improved antioxidant activity and cancer cell suppression.
A literature review on the metabolic effects of fucoxanthin by a Japanese scientist concluded that it promotes blood sugar control by reducing insulin resistance. This is done by suppressing adipocytokines in fat cells and activating GLUT4, which is a sugar transporter in cells. He concluded that it improves metabolic health.
However, we need well-controlled, large-scale studies before we can recommend this supplement for weight loss and control of sugar in the blood.
