29 Jun 2010 --- The preliminary data highlighted that thanks to ID-alG, only part of ingested food is actually absorbed by the body, which helps to reduce the negative effect of a hypercaloric diet on body weight and body fat gain.

--- ID-alG from BioSerae is made from premium brown algae sourced in the pristine water off the coast of Brittany and provides a natural source of vital nutrients.

A preliminary in vitro study highlighted the properties of ID-alG to inhibit 2 of the main digestive enzymes, the lipase and the amylase, by more than 50%. More recently, an in vivo test was conducted to confirm the weight-management effect of ID-alG in rats subject to obesity induction. Results show that ID-alG helps to reduce by near than 22% the weight gain of rats fed with fat-enriched meals. This study also highlights that ID-alG enables to limit body fat gain usually favoured by fat-enriched meals.

This preliminary data highlighted that thanks to ID-alG, only part of ingested food is actually absorbed by the body, which helps to reduce the negative effect of a hypercaloric diet on body weight and body fat gain.

A monocentric, randomized, placebo controlled in parallel double-blind clinical study was conducted on 60 overweight women, with a daily dose of 400 mg of ID-alG over 2 months. This clinical study confirms the exceptional weight management properties of ID-alG with significant results observed on women with BMI (Body Mass Index) ≤ 30:

• Almost 3kg weight loss:
The study shows a 2.8 kg average weight loss after two months of treatment compared to placebo (+0.9 kg), p=0.047.

• 100% weight-loss = fat loss
The clinical study shows about 3kg fat mass reduction in the ID-alG group compared to +0.94 kg in the placebo group (p=0.038).

• Shaped buttocks & thighs
By decreasing fat and carb assimilation, ID-alG helps to control caloric intake and to reduce fat storage, thus improving the figures: up to 4 cm thighs reduction, and up to 5.8 cm buttocks reduction observed in the ID-alG group.

Furthermore, at the end of the study each volunteer filled in the satisfaction questionnaire and results were more than encouraging:
• 76% of consumers were convinced by the weight management properties of ID-alG.
More than 70% of women included in the ID-alG group, declared that they would like to buy the product and continue to use it, whereas they were only 49% in the placebo group.
• No side effects
Contrary to other weight-management products which mechanisms tend to be similar to the one of ID-alG (inhibition of digestive enzyme), ID-alG is a safe ingredient and does not induce any side effects.
Moreover, transaminases analysis (ASAT and ALAT) were performed at the beginning and at the end of the study. The goal of this blood analysis was to give the proof that ID-alG is a safe product without adverse effects on the liver. The transaminases ALAT and ASAT were not modified by the product ID-alG either.

This clinical study confirms on women the weight management properties of ID-alG. By decreasing fat and carb assimilation, ID-alG helps to control caloric intake, reducing thus body weight and fat storage, without any side effects.

ID-alG refunds a full spectrum of the original seaweeds’ nutritional properties, including many of essential micronutrients. ID-alG is naturally concentrated in minerals and trace elements particularly in iodine which is renowned to play an essential role in energetic metabolism, thermogenesis and fat reduction.

ID-alG helps to naturally control body weight, while mainting well-being and vitality.

ID-alG can be incorporated into dietary supplements or functional food and beverages, as a natural ingredient to support weight management and well-being.
