Bio Serae Labs latest clinical research on Cacti-Nea™ has confirmed the diuretic and weight management effect of this original prickly pear cactus fruit extract (Opuntia ficus-indica). The 28-days clinical study was conducted on 49 women with normal BMI (between 20 and 25). The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate Cacti-Nea™'s diuretic effect at the dose of 2g/day, in women showing water retention.
Very positive results were highlighted including a significant reduction of water mass after one week of treatment and significant weight loss in the Cacti-Nea™ group. Contrary to other diuretic substances, Cacti-Nea™ does not show any side effect on blood pressure nor on mineral balance. No excessive mineral loss was observed.
A sub-group of women whose body fat mass increased before the beginning of the study (between D-14 pre-inclusion visit and D0 inclusion visit) was identified as being even more receptive to the weight management and diuretic effect of Cacti-Nea™. The results obtained on this targeted population follows the trends observed in the per protocol population, but are even more noticeable, and are reinforced with positive effects on the silhouette.
