French natural ingredient manufacturer Fytexia® announces the publication of the first clinical study carried out on Fiit-ns®, its proprietary metabolic anti-aging ingredient.
Fiit-ns is a synergistic blend of extracts from grapefruit, grape, green tea, guarana and black carrot, bringing strong antioxidant properties from various polyphenols. It is enhanced with vitamin B3 to increase the feeling of energy while reducing tiredness linked to active lifestyles. Fiit-ns offers benefits from the synergy between polyphenols to rejuvenate body parameters, for a metabolic anti-aging action and thus an improvement of quality of life (QOL).
A 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study has been conducted on 17 obese subjects (BMI=30-33.3). They received either 0.9 grams a day of Fiit-ns (2x450mg) or a placebo and had a normal diet and 30 minutes per week of physical activity.
After 12 weeks, metabolic markers have been improved, leading to a significant improvement of QOL.
- Higher feeling of energy in the Fiit-ns group
- Higher feeling of well-being in the Fiit-ns group
- Weight loss of -6.1kg (p<0.005) in the Fiit-ns group associated with more important reductions of waist size and hip size than in the placebo group
- Metabolic functions, such as cardiovascular parameters, glycated hemoglobin, oxidative stress, etc., significantly improved in the Fiit-ns group
With the publication of this clinical study in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, Fytexia demonstrates that Fiit-ns delivers benefits from the synergistic combination of selected fruit and vegetable extracts and vitamin B3 to improve QOL based on the rejuvenation of metabolic functions.
