The fucoTHIN Story (from the mouth of Jordan Rubin!)
Jordan Rubin Discovers the Miracle of Fucoxanthin
Whenever I tell someone the story of fucoTHIN, there is almost always the same reaction. I tell them that the product is a fat burner, and they roll their eyes. After all, there are hundreds of products that tout their ability to burn fat or raise your metabolism. The vast majority of them don’t work or are extremely dangerous. Maybe you have had that experience yourself? In fact for the past seven years I have resisted completely the urge to launch a fat burning product. I have researched all of the ingredients used in these products, and frankly I found that they didn’t meet my standards or the standards of the doctors and scientists that I collaborate with. While the market for weight management products exploded, I was happy to not be a part of it.
I felt that most of the products were unsafe or ineffective. I could understand then why people would roll their eyes when I started telling them about Garden of Life’s new fat burning product fucoTHIN. But something funny happened as I continued the story. You see, the story of fucoxanthin, the main ingredient contained in fucoTHIN reads like an action adventure novel. There are exotic locales, cutting edge science, stories of ancient cultures, a dedicated Russian Doctor, and even a sad, tragic and untimely death. All of a sudden, people were becoming more and more interested. Of course every story has a climax, a resolution that both grabs and satisfies the person hearing the story. For fucoTHIN it is this: It works. It burns fat, and clinical research shows that it does so without all of the harm that other fat burning formulas cause. This is the story of fucoTHIN.

The Russian Doctor
Dr. Zakir Ramazanov was a good friend of mine. More than anything we shared a passion for finding whole food ingredients that promoted vibrant health. Dr. Ramazanov was a classically trained biochemist and plant physiologist who graduated from university in Russia at the top of his class. After a stint in the Russian army, he served as the Head Engineer at the Institute of Solar Energy of the Soviet Union. It was there that he began experimenting with solar bioreactors and how they affected the cultivation of certain marine vegetables and algae, including spirulina and chlorella. As his career advanced and eventually took him to the United States, Dr. Ramazanov continued to develop cultivation methods that allowed for the human consumption of sea vegetables more commonly known as seaweed.
Why seaweed? Why not look at beets, or cherries or apples? Dr. Ramazanov focused on seaweed based upon epidemiological data from some of the longest lived and healthiest cultures on the planet. Scientists have found compelling data that links the consumption of seaweed to the long-term health of many Asian cultures, most notably the Japanese.
It is amazing to me how often we ignore data like this. Instead of following the health secrets of the longest lived people in the world, we opt for convenience foods such as greasy fries and mocha lattes and then wonder why we are getting fatter and sicker. We even feel hopeless as to why. The answers are right in front of us! Dr. Ramazanov understood that key components of the Asian diet, namely seaweed, contributed to their extraordinary health. He was determined to bring this message to the world.
Eventually, Dr. Ramazanov would move to the Canary Islands where he would work for the Institute of Technology and Marine Sciences. While living there, fucoxanthin and its ability to burn fat caught Dr. Ramazanov’s attention, which would ultimately lead to it becoming the main ingredient in fucoTHIN.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that fat burners are in such high demand. Sixty-six percent of all American adults are overweight. Total health care costs associated with being overweight are over $90 billion a year. Fifty-nine percent of Americans do not exercise at all. Only 9% of Americans eat the recommended 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. In 1970, the average person consumed only two calories a day from high fructose corn syrup. In 2005, that number was 200 calories a day. We don’t exercise enough. We overeat. We eat more of the foods that are horribly unhealthy, and we are getting fatter because of it.
As a result, we have seen the proliferation of some unsafe and unhealthy products designed to aid weight management and burn fat. Unscrupulous companies tout the benefits of their “magic pills” that supposedly help you shed pounds without even trying. As I mentioned before, most of these products are completely ineffective. Worse still, many of them contain chemicals that cause very dangerous side effects. What is needed is a completely natural product that is clinically tested and shown to work.
That is where fucoTHIN comes in!
Fucoxanthin, contained in fucoTHIN, is a compound that is found in several different types of seaweed. Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (similar to lutein and lycopene), which is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage.† It is the pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also participates in photosynthesis (the conversion of light into energy). While all of that makes fucoxanthin interesting, when fucoxanthin was studied in the laboratory, it revealed a quality that makes it unique.
Fucoxanthin contained in fucoTHIN actually burns fat.
But it gets even better. Most fat-burning products work by creating a thermogenic effect in the body. This is almost always done by stimulating the central nervous system. Creating a thermogenic effect is good. Thermogenesis is the process by which the body generates heat (energy) by increasing the metabolism above normal. While thermogenesis is good, creating this effect by boosting the central nervous system can be very problematic for most people.
Fucoxanthin is unique because it creates a thermogenic effect without stimulating the central nervous system. Fucoxanthin actually boosts your metabolism, without giving you the jitters or causing you to lose sleep. Instead of the shotgun approach of boosting your metabolism by stimulating the central nervous system, fucoxanthin breaks down fat without the increased heart rate.
While the discovery of the fat-burning potential of fucoxanthin was ground-breaking, there was still one rather huge problem. In order to get the right amount of fucoxanthin to effectively burn fat, you would need to eat an outrageous amount of brown seaweed.

Dr. Ramazanov’s dedication to finding a way to make fucoxanthin available to everybody is nothing short of inspirational. He was so excited about the implications of the laboratory studies that he would spend the next seven years figuring out how to solve the problem at hand.
As mentioned before the problem was two-fold; the first problem was one of access. Very few of us have tons of edible seaweed in our backyard, and while I like a seaweed salad as much as anyone, who wants to eat one at every meal?
The first step in finding a way to cultivate and concentrate fucoxanthin from edible seaweed was to choose the right seaweed. Dr. Ramazanov experimented with hundreds of different types of seed stock before finally settling on two specific strains, Undaria (Wakame) and Laminaria (Kombu). Once selected, he moved on to the next issue.
The reality is that to concentrate enough fucoxanthin from the seaweed, you would need to grow miles and miles of seaweed just to have enough to answer the demand created by this unique product. Thankfully, Dr. Ramazanov’s work provided the answer. By controlling the amount of sunlight and using large cultivation tanks filled with pristine deep sea water, he was able to perfect a process that greatly concentrated (200 – 500 times) the amount of fucoxanthin from the seaweed.
Finally, Dr. Ramazanov created a proprietary process used to extract the fucoxanthin and make it available for human consumption.
There is a sad note to the story. Dr. Ramazanov died before he could see fucoxanthin made available for mass consumption. Fucoxanthin is his legacy, and I am here to carry that on.
One More Step
For most manufacturers the story would wrap up soon thereafter. After all, there are laboratory studies that demonstrate the method by which fucoxanthin works. Why not make the product available and start seeing returns on the seven year time investment?
For me, the answer comes from our competition. The trail of weight management products is littered with broken promises. If I was going to put Garden of Life and my name behind a fat burner, I needed more than just studies done in a lab. I needed human research.
This is, of course, a gigantic risk. After seven years of development, what if you take the product to clinical trials and it is not effective? What if the lab results aren’t mirrored in humans? All the time and money spent on development would be wasted. This is the reason so many of our competitors don’t perform the human clinical trials. They are afraid of the results. At the end of the day though, you only have your name. People need to trust that name. If fucoTHIN failed in human clinical studies, so be it. We decided to put fucoTHIN to the test. But of course you know by now that it didn’t fail. In fact, it succeeded far beyond our expectations.
The Skinny on fucoTHIN For the Skeptics!
FINALLY...Clinical Research on Humans!
A total of 150 women participated in these studies: 40 in the Metabolic Rate Study and 110 in the Weight Loss Study. The average age of the women in the group was 38 and all participants were clinically obese. Both studies lasted 16 weeks, and in both all the participants were counseled to follow an 1800 calorie diet. Because there was a particular interest on fucoxanthin’s effects on white adipose tissue that comprises human visceral fat, the groups within the weight loss study were further broken down into two sub-groups: 1) those with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), and 2) those who did not suffer from Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NFL) fatty liver disease.
The Metabolic Rate Study concluded that there was a statistically significant difference between the group taking Xanthingen and the placebo control group. They found:
The group taking Xanthigen (fücoTHIN) experienced an increase in energy expenditure rate (also known as Metabolic Rate) of 7.03 units Kelvin as measured at the conclusion of the sixteen week study. The Placebo group experienced an increase in energy expenditure of 5.95 units Kelvin. Therefore, the group taking Xanthigen (fücoTHIN) had a metabolic rate increase that averaged 18.2% higher than the Placebo group.
The placebo group’s baseline metabolic rate at the beginning of the study was 5.91 units Kelvin and, as described above, 5.95 units Kelvin at the conclusion, an average increase over baseline of under 1%.
Researchers first noted an increase in human metabolic rate after the 5th full week of the study.
The study noted that pomegranate seed oil has a supportive or synergistic effect on the fucoxanthin-induced stimulation of the human metabolism. The researchers went on to explain that the pomegranate seed oil “has been shown to suppress delta-9 de-saturation, suggesting that this is a possible mechanism behind the effect of the pomegranate seed oil on hepatic TG accumulation.”
The Weight Loss Study made similar statistically significant findings:
There were two groups who took Xanthigen (fücoTHIN) in this study: those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and those with normal liver fat (NLF). The group with NAFLD lost an average of 15.2 pounds while the group with NLF lost an average of 13.9 pounds. The average of both groups which is the entire study group taking Xanthigen lost an average of 14 ½lbs
The placebo group only lost 3lbs.
Mathematically, those who took fücoTHIN lost over 4 ½ times more weight than those who just dieted.
In addition, waist circumference was significantly reduced in those taking Xanthigen versus the placebo.
The study determined that “Xanthigen (fücoTHIN) promotes weight loss, body and liver fat content reduction in obese non-diabetic female subjects independently of their liver fat content.”
The first “statistically significant reduction in body weight” occurred after 6 continuous weeks of supplementation.
Researchers concluded that “the results of this clinical trial indicate that Xanthigen possesses clinically relevant anti-obesity properties.”
Researches noted that pomegranate seed oil “reduced the serum levels of monounsaturated fatty acids that predominanty form fat depots in the body.” These fat depots “have been implicated in cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.”
As an additional benefit, the study determined that Xanthigen is an effective anti-inflammatory.
Life Science Alliance (“LSA”), a respected and independent consortium of scientific consultants, reviewed the two clinical studies together with the Japanese study in rodents. Some of their significant findings included:
All three studies were well designed in a reasoned and scientific manner
With respect to the Metabolic Rate Study, LSA concluded that the “authors were able to detect statistically significant differences among the treatments on measures of [energy expenditure rate], which from the data presented, appear to be valid.”
LSA concluded that Xanthigen is safe and non-stimulant.
With respect to the Weight Loss Study, LSA found that the study supported the conclusion that Xanthigen (fücoTHIN) results in “weight loss, reduction in waist circumference and reductions in other biomarkers of obesity.”
Lastly, LSA noted that amongst the 150 participants, over the 16 week period, no adverse effects were experienced.
The Science of fücoTHIN-induced Thermogenesis
The term, “thermogenic,” is euphemistically referred to as “fat burning” because of the nature in which the process works. In thermogenesis, the metabolic rate of cells in increased, requiring them to “burn” fat that the body stores in adipose tissue. This is completed when the conversion of nutrients (such as fat) to energy occurs within the cells, more specifically, inside cell structures called mitochondria.
Fucoxanthin (fücoTHIN) induced thermogenesis is non-stimulant in nature because it bypasses adrenergic (stimulatory or sympathetic) receptors at the surface of the cells that are also known to be UPC-1 inducing. Instead, it addresses the process of energy distribution at the level of mitochondria, precisely where conversion of fat into energy is taking place. This process was demonstrated by all of the studies cited in this memo – human and animal.
fücoTHIN is particularly effective at “burning” visceral fat, composed of white adipose tissue. Visceral fat is the fat surrounding the internal organs, and specifically the double layer of fat flanking the stomach, called the omentum. (This is specifically different from subcutaneous fat which lies just below the surface from the skin and is more often deposited in the hip and thigh regions.) An excess of visceral fat leads to the "pot belly" or "beer belly" effect, in which the abdomen protrudes excessively.
In the Japanese Study, researchers determined that supplementation with fucoxanthin dramatically reduced the abdominal fat of mice. Building upon these findings, researchers in the Metabolic Rate study noted that the fucoxanthin found in fücoTHIN directly contributed to the reduction of visceral fat in humans. It accomplishes this by igniting the production of a specialized protein gene called uncoupling protein-1 (“UCP1 Gene”) in white adipose tissue. (Visceral fat is made up of white adipose tissue.) The researchers believe that the UCP1 Gene stimulates the metabolism of fatty acids inside of the white adipose tissue and thereby speeds their oxidation. This metabolic process results in burning the visceral fat tissue
NOTE: fücoTHIN does not contain ephedra or caffeine, or host of other ingredients typically present in stimulant based thermogenic nutrition products including bitter orange, guarana, ma huang or any other type of caffeine. None of the components of fücoTHIN work by affecting the central nervous system.
NOTE: fücoTHIN has added benefits due to its nature as a caratenoid. Carotenoids are antioxidants that provide cells protection from free radical damage. Several studies have citied the antioxidant properties of fucoxanthin. In one study, the authors concluded that fucoxanthin exhibits “antioxidant activities comparable to that of alpha-tocopherol” (i.e. Vitamin E).
It is important to note that fücoTHIN is the only fucoxanthin product available in health food stores and online supported by human clinical studies. Other so-called fucoxanthin thermogenic supplements may not be able to rely on the Japanese Study and certainly cannot claim the efficacy of our human studies. The unique process in which our fucoxanthin is derived and its concentration tested is explained in detail in each of our human studies and the researchers conducting the Metabolic Rate Study found that the pomegranate seed oil in our patent pending fücoTHIN formula increased fucoxanthin’s effectiveness as a fat burner.

FucoTHIN is a Power "Plant" that Burns Fat!
Fucoxanthin contained in fucoTHIN actually burns fat. Most people know that eating more calories than you burn is the main contributor to weight gain. While it is easy to understand that caloric intake is entirely dependent on your dietary habits, you might wonder about how the body burns those calories. Besides using energy to allow our organs to function and muscles to contract (like when working out and even for everyday activities like walking), it is also spent to produce heat via a process called thermogenesis. This literally means generation of heat, hence the term “burning” fat.
Fat is the fuel for thermogenesis, which can be amplified by compounds that make the body produce more heat, called thermogenic substances. The thermogenic substances like ephedra, ma huang and guarana can cause undesired side effects, such as jitters, increased heart rate and loss of sleep. Now research has discovered a natural non-stimulant thermogenic compound that supports burning of fat without these undesirable side effects. It is called fucoxanthin (which is what makes up FucoTHIN.) Fucoxanthin is unique because it creates a thermogenic effect without stimulating the central nervous system.
Fucoxanthin is a brown pigment found in some marine vegetables or seaweeds, such as kombu and wakame. It belongs to the class of compounds called carotenoids, along with beta-carotene in carrots, lycopene in tomatoes and lutein in dark green leafy vegetables. Unlike beta-carotene, which is metabolized into vitamin A in the body, fucoxanthin works by affecting the function of intracellular structures called mitochondria.
Mitochondria are often referred to as “power plants” of the cell. This is where fat burning takes place resulting in generation of heat, or thermogenesis. Research shows that fucoxanthin increases production of uncoupling protein 1(UCP1) in the mitochondria. UCP1 is a protein that causes mitochondria to make more energy that dissipates in the form of heat. This results in higher metabolic and fat-burning rate in the fat cells where the fuel is stored. This effect of a special concentrate of fucoxanthin was shown to be further enhanced by pomegranate seed oil. Two recent human clinical studies reviewed the effect of this fucoxanthin and pomegranate seed oil formulation when used in conjunction with an 1800 calorie diet. In one of the human clinical studies, this proprietary combination produced a statistically significant increase in the energy expenditure rate of 18.2% over placebo in 16 consecutive weeks. In the other clinical study the participants lost an average of 14.5 pounds, compared to 3 pounds in the placebo group. These studies are being prepared for publication in peer-reviewed journals in 2007.
The exact formula that was validated through these two different human trials is found in the all-natural weight management product, FucoTHIN from Garden of Life. FucoTHIN is a revolutionary whole food based supplement that is the first to contain the marine algae-derived ingredient, fucoxanthin, with a clinically proven thermogenic effect that breaks down fat. Along with a nutritious diet and moderate exercise, FucoThin can be an effective addition to your healthy-weight plan and help you reach your weight management goals.
Early Clinical Studies on FucoTHIN!
FucoTHIN has been shown in clinical studies to aid in the breakdown of fat. Results from a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial of fucoTHIN in 140 overweight female subjects after 16 weeks showed subjects lost an average of 14.5 pounds vs. 3 pounds in the placebo group!
Research on fucoxanthin has been widely published by international scientists in peer reviewed medical literature and scientific journals:
Institute of Immunopathology, Moscow
Russian Academy of natural Sciences, Moscow
Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Moscow
Russian National Center for Professional Sport Performance and Education, Moscow
First Medicinal Academy, Moscow
FucoTHIN is made from a concentrate of fucoxanthin found in Undaria (Wakame) and Laminaria (Kombu), which are grown in unpolluted waters near the Canary Islands and Europe. To give you the best results and higher levels of antioxidants, fucoxanthin levels are proactively improved by:
Using photo-bioreactors with circulating filtered deep sea water
Manipulating for modification of pigment content
Harvesting at an early life stage and varied light intensity
Using a proprietary process of extraction to increase bioavailability
In fact, fucoxanthin levels in fucoTHIN are 200-500 times higher than wild seaweed alone!
Garden of Life's FucoTHIN is further enhanced with a proprietary pomegranate seed oil standardized to punicic acid. It works synergistically with fucoxanthin to support natural thermogenesis and maximize your weight control efforts.
Pomegranate seeds contain oil with a unique fatty acid composition. Called punicic acid, or conjugated linolenic acid (CLNA), it gives you an extra edge in your weight control efforts.
Research shows other benefits from pomegranate seeds:
Contributes to tissue health
Supports the immune system
Helps maintain proper oxidative balance in the body
NOTE: fucoTHIN does not contain ephedra or caffeine, or host of other ingredients typically present in stimulant based thermogenic nutrition products including bitter orange, guarana, ma huang or any other type of caffeine. None of the components of fücoTHIN work by affecting the central nervous system.
NOTE: fucoTHIN has added benefits due to its nature as a caratenoid. Carotenoids are antioxidants that provide cells protection from free radical damage. Several studies have citied the antioxidant properties of fucoxanthin. In one study, the authors concluded that fucoxanthin exhibits “antioxidant activities comparable to that of alpha-tocopherol” (i.e. Vitamin E).
CUSTOMER REVIEWS, FACTS & FAQ'S ON fucoTHIN
Fucoxanthin, a Brown Seaweed in fucoTHIN Contains
a Promising Fat Fighter and Weight Reducer!
Chemists in Japan have found that brown seaweed, a flavor component used in many Asian soups and salads, contains a compound that appears in animal studies to promote weight loss by reducing the accumulation of fat.
, the compound achieved a 5 percent to 10 percent weight reduction in test animals and could be developed into a natural extract or drug to help fight obesity, the researchers say.
The compound targets abdominal fat, in particular, and may help reduce oversized guts
, the scientists say. Their study was presented today at the 232nd national meeting of the American Chemical Society.
Fucoxanthin is a brownish pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also conducts photosynthesis (the conversion of light to energy).
It is found at high levels in several different types of brown seaweed, including a type of kelp that is used in traditional Japanese miso soup. But fucoxanthin is not found in abundance in green and red seaweed, which also are used in many Asian foods, the researchers say.
The brown seaweed used in the current study was Undaria pinnatifida, a type of kelp also known as wakame, which is widely consumed in Japan. As kelp forests are found in abundance along the California coast, the new research findings could represent a potentially lucrative market if kelp -- of which there are many varieties -- can be developed into effective antiobesity drugs, according to the scientists.
"I hope that our study [points to a way to] help reduce obesity in the U.S. and elsewhere," says study leader Kazuo Miyashita, Ph.D., a chemistry professor at Hokkaido University in Hokkaido, Japan. The compound appears to fight fat through two different mechanisms, he says.
The study involved more than 200 rats and mice. In obese animals fed fucoxanthin, the compound appeared to stimulate a protein, UCP1, that causes fat oxidation and conversion of energy to heat, Miyashita says. The protein is found in white adipose tissue, the type of fat that surrounds internal organs. As the abdominal area contains abundant adipose tissue, the compound might be particularly effective at shrinking oversized guts, the researcher says. This is the first time that a natural food component has been shown to reduce fat by targeting the UCP1 protein, he says.
The pigment also appeared in animal studies to stimulate the liver to produce a compound called DHA, a type of omega-3 fatty acid, at levels comparable to fish oil supplementation.
Increased levels of DHA reduce 'bad cholesterol' (low density lipoprotein), which is known to contribute to obesity and heart disease. But unlike fish oil supplements, fucoxanthin doesn't have an unpleasant smell
, Miyashita says. No adverse side effects from fucoxanthin were reported in the mice and rats used in the study.
But eating lots of seaweed is not the quickest or most convenient path to weight loss, Miyashita cautions. He notes that a person would probably need to eat huge amounts of brown seaweed daily to cause noticeable weight loss. That's because fucoxanthin is tightly bound to proteins in the seaweed and is not easily absorbed in the form of whole seaweed. However, he hopes to extract the most active form of fucoxanthin from brown seaweed so that it can be developed into a pill that people can take daily or as needed.
Human studies are planned, the researcher says, but adds that it may take three to five years before such an anti-obesity pill is available to consumers. Until then, people should continue to eat a well-balanced diet and get plenty of exercise, he says. Funding for the current study was provided by the Japanese government. (Article taken from Newswise, Sept 11, 2006)
(This study shows that taking FucoTHIN, along with a healthy diet and exercise will make a huge difference in your weight loss goals.)
Experienced users may choose to gradually increase to up to 3 Fuco THIN softgels 3 times a day (9 softgels a day total) with food and a full glass of water (at least 8 oz. See new label below.) For those of you doing this, you'll be delighted with FucoTHIN's new 180 ct bottle, so you can save a lot of money!
CONCENTRATED FUCOXANTHIN FROM DEEP SEA WATER CULTIVATED BROWN MARINE VEGETABLES SHOWN TO PROMOTE FAT LOSS IN HUMAN STUDY
BOCA RATON, Florida, September 18, 2006 - Promising new research from Japanese and Russian scientists demonstrates that fucoxanthin, a natural unique carotenoid specific to brown marine vegetables, possesses strong thermogenic properties and induce UCP1 protein genes expression that may contribute to dietary weight reduction and healthy weight management.
A research paper presented at last week’s American Chemical Society meeting by Japanese researchers demonstrated the potential for white fat tissue (WAT) reduction by adding fucoxanthin from brown marine vegetables to the diets of experimental animals. Even more promising research is pending publication in the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. In this new, human clinical trial, a patent-pending extract of fucoxanthin showed promising results for fat loss in humans. This double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 140 obese female demonstrated statistically significant reduction in liver fat, body fat and body weight versus placebo after 16 weeks. This study is pending publication by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and was recently presented for National Academy Scientific Award for the best clinical trial of the year.
Dr. Sergey Grachev (Prof. of Medicine, MD) and Dr. Musa Abidov (Professor of Medicine, MD) at First Medical Academy and Institute of Immunopathology, Russian Academy of Natural Sciences the primary researcher for the Russian study, commented, “It is important to note that the benefits of brown marine vegetables are the result of Fucoxanthin, the active component. The observed effect is specific to fucoxanthin and was not found in other carotenoids. FucoTHIN is extracted from selected species of edible brown marine vegetables cultivated in unique advanced marine biotechnological methods and extracted using a proprietary process developed over the past seven years to create a highly concentrated natural fucoxanthin – 500% higher than wildcrafted seaweed. Seaweed in the wild contains just 0.01-0.02% fucoxanthin, so other seaweed products will not provide the same results.”
About Brown Marine Vegetables
Brown marine vegetables have long been used in the Oriental and Russian diet since ancient times. Epidemiological studies strongly suggest that the high consumption of marine vegetable derived products may be a contributing factor in their well-established, low incidence of breast cancer (64% lower), prostate cancer (75% lower) and mortality rate related to obesity (98% lower) in these countries as compared to Americans.
FucoThin is the first marine thermogenic - a proprietary concentrate of fucoxanthin from specially selected strains of deep sea water cultivated brown marine vegetables grown under closely controlled conditions in special photobioreactors in the pristine Canary Islands, 1,000 miles from Europe. The combination of proprietary cultivation and extraction creates an all-natural extract with pharmacologically effective levels of fucoxanthin, along with other marine carotenoids violaxanthin and neoxanthin and marine omega-3 essential fatty acids. This unique marine vegetable extract is combined pomegranate seed oil extract that is synergistically enhances its effectiveness.
Metabolically, fucoxanthin promotes the induction of UCP1-mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1. Fucoxanthin upregulates the expression of UCP1 gene expression in WAT thus contributing to reduced white adipose tissue weight.
By stimulating the expression of the UPC-1 gene in WAT, fucoxanthin promotes thermogenesis (fat burning) in white fat cells. White fat cells are those that accumulate in the liver and around the belly as a result of overweight or obesity. Unlike caffeine, ephedra, and other stimulants, the thermogenic effect from fucoThin is achieved without stimulating the central nervous system – so there are no jitters, loss of sleep, or overstimulation.

WORSHIP MUSIC IN THREE DIMENSIONS - How to Sing Down the Presence and Power of God
This book was written to help churches bring their congregation into the very lap of God. This can be accomplished by adapting a certain musical progression during the time of congregational singing. The author, Rev. Tom Pedigo, calls this model "The Temple Pattern" which involves a simple threefold process of musically moving from the Outer Court (celebration and jubilation) to the Inner Court (reflection and expectation) and into the Holy of Holies (adoration and spiritual communion). A must-read for every pastor, worship leader and serious worshipper. After visiting hundreds of churches, Rev. Pedigo believes this is a blueprint for corporate church revival.
