AHD International, a distributor of new-to-market nutraceutical and functional food ingredients, now offers a 50 percent grade of Bellalean(TM), its exclusive brown seaweed fucoxanthin extract for weight management, making it the highest grade currently available for dietary supplement use.
Long used in Japanese, Korean and Chinese diets, which are noted for their exceptional health and longevity qualities, brown seaweed's fucoxanthin, an antioxidant carotenoid, has been successfully cultivated and extracted by AHD International to produce a concentrated dose of fucoxanthin that can be distributed in capsule form. Studies have shown that fucoxanthin stimulates production of UCP1, a protein responsible for facilitating fat burning around the abdominal region, resulting in total body weight loss reports of 5 to 10 percent. Higher DHA markers in the liver, an omega-3 fatty acid that supports healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, were also reported.
"AHD International was the first North American bulk supplier of fucoxanthin, and we are proud to offer Bellalean at a significantly higher grade than our counterparts without sacrificing quality, safety and effectiveness," stated John Alkire, president, AHD International. "Our HPLC-tested, 50 percent Bellalean is a potent ingredient that serves as a long-term agent for healthy weight loss and management and is just one of several fucoxanthin grade and source options available to our customers."
