PRODUCT MONOGRAPH FOR HERBAL MAGIC
XanthaLean          NPN 80056617

GENERAL INFORMATION
Herbal Magic’s XanthaLean has been formulated to help support weight management, along with a calorie reduced diet and physical activity. XanthaLean is comprised of the Xanthigen® proprietary blend which contains brown seaweed extract providing fucoxanthin, and pomegranate seed oil providing punicic acid.

Xanthalean helps manage weight loss by helping to decrease fat cell production, helping to decrease the expression of adipogenic genes, helping to increase metabolism, helping reduce white adipose tissue and helping reduce secretion of triglycerides.

This formula also provides antioxidant benefits. As fat cells are able store toxins1, these chemicals are released throughout the body upon lipolysis. Therefore weight loss can lead to increased circulating concentrations of toxic pollutants.2,3,4Antioxidants are required to help quench these toxins and reduce damage to surrounding environments.5,6

RECOMMENDED USES

  • Primary Use: Complements your Herbal Magic weight management program which includes a calorie reduced diet and regular activity.
  • Secondary Use: Provides antioxidants.

 

MECHANISM OF ACTION
Research Suggests
Xanthigen® has been clinically tested to support healthy weight management and fat metabolism. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 151 women following an 1800 calorie per day diet, participants were randomly assigned to receive Xanthigen®, fucoxanthin, pomegranate seed oil or olive oil (placebo) for 16 weeks. Results demonstrated that those in the Xanthigen® group had an average weight loss of 14.5 pounds compared to 3 pounds in the placebo group. Xanthigen® also supported healthy hepatic fat metabolism, healthy triglyceride levels and healthy C-reactive protein (CRP) levels.7,8,9

Research also shows that fucoxanthin and punicic acid in combination help better suppress adipocyte differentiation and lipid accumulation via multiple pathways, than either alone. Xanthigen®, a combination of both active ingredients, helps suppress accumulation of lipid droplets in adipocytes compared to its individual components.10

Brown Seaweed (Fucoxanthin)
The brown seaweed extract in this product is rich in fucoxanthin, a type of carotenoid (a class of natural pigments found in brown seaweed) antioxidant that protects cells and tissues from damaging effects of free radicals. Fucoxanthin has demonstrated slimming properties by reducing fat storage11,12,13 It is also a source of omega-3 fatty acids which have recognized triglyceride lowering effects. 14

Fucoxanthin has shown weight loss properties by increasing energy expenditure and promoting fat burning within fat cells, by upregulating mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1).1 UCP1 expression is known as a significant component of whole body energy expenditure and its dysfunction contributes to the development of obesity. 15,16Fucoxanthin is also known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-angiogenic and anti-malarial activities, and its protective effects on the liver, blood vessels of the brain, bones, skin, and eyes.17

Pomegranate (Punicic Acid)
Pomegranate seed contains the active nutrient ingredient punicic acid, which is known to have several health benefits, including high antioxidant capacity, anti-inflamatory, antitumor, immunomodulatory, anti-atherosclerotic and serum lipid-lowering activities.15,17,18 Pucinic Acid is derived from pomegranate seed and supports epidermal tissue regeneration, boosts the immune system and displays chemopreventative activity against hormone related (prostate and breast) and colon cancers.15 Punicic Acid has also been shown to suppress the production and secretion of triglycerides and apolipoproteins.19

Research shows that Punicic Acid can help reduce triglycerides in hyperlipidemic adults and create a favorable HDL: TG ratio20, decrease fat accumulation synergistically in adipocytes cultures21 and modulate genes facilitating insulin and glucose metabolism in muscle cultures and inhibited pro-inflammatory genes.22
