Slimming supplement containing ECGC, resveratrol and Grape Seed Extract shown to work in human study

If you were to consume 282 mg EGCG, 200 mg resveratrol, 92 mg Grape Seed Extract and 25 mg polyphenols from wed wine daily, you'd lose 3.4 kg fat in six months. In theory at least. Human biologists at the University of Maastricht will publish an article on this soon in the International Journal of Obesity.

The researchers did an experiment with nine healthy-but-on-the-heavy-side men, and nine women of similar proportions. The average BMI of the participants was 28. For three days the subjects took capsules containing phenols. On another occasion the subjects took placebo capsules for three days. They took the capsules with breakfast and the evening meal.

The researchers also experimented with a supplement containing not only EGCG, resveratrol and Grape Seed EGCG, but also soya isoflavones. The participants consumed 80 mg soya isoflavones per day.

On the third day of supplementation the researchers measured how many calories the subjects were burning. They measured energy expenditure when the subjects had not yet eaten [pre-meal] and after consuming a fat-rich meal replacement [post-meal].

The researchers discovered that the subjects burned 0.05 kilocalories per minute more before eating when they had taken the slimming supplement containing EGCG, resveratrol, Grape Seed Extract and wine phenols than when they had taken a placebo. Intriguingly, the effect of the supplement was much less when it contained soya isoflavones as well.

For the first six hours after eating, the supplement containing EGCG, resveratrol and Grape Seed Extract boosted energy expenditure by 0.02 kilocalories per minute. The supplement containing soya isoflavones had slightly more effect post-meal, boosting energy expenditure by 0.03 kilocalories per minute.

The effects were subtle, but may be interesting in the longer term. If the subjects' bodies had continued to react in the same way to the supplements, then after six months they would have lost 3.4 kg.



The study was financed by Alpro, a manufacturer of soya products.
