Description

In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.

Apollo’s Hegemony Fucoxanthin is a dietary supplement containing fucoxanthin in the amount of 25 mg. Fucoxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid compound with a proven ability to support adipose tissue loss and a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity.

Fucoxanthin is a brown colourant belonging to xanthophylls, that is oxidised derivatives of the carotenes that participate in the process of photosynthesis. Fucoxanthin can be found in some species of algae, like brown algae, as well as fish and crustaceans. It is thought to be one of the most common xanthophylls in the marine environment.

Fucoxanthin stimulates adipose tissue metabolism. The compound efficiently supports adipose tissue burning through several complicated mechanisms, out of which the most important one is the stimulation of thermogenin action (UCP1, uncoupling protein) in white adipose tissue (WAT). Tests on animals have shown that fucoxanthin administration increases the number of β3 receptors in WAT. The receptors increase thermogenin expression. The main task of WAT is storing energy in the form of triglycerides, which can be then used for ATP synthesis or heat production. Excess WAT is connected with many metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis.

Thermogenin is a protein found in the inner mitochondrial membrane whose activity leads to an increase in heat production through fatty acid β-oxidation, regulating non-shivering thermogenesis and increasing the organism’s energy expenditure. Thermogenin affects metabolic and energetic balance, as well as exhibits antioxidant properties, reducing the number of free radicals produced by the mitochondria.

Fucoxanthin affects the activity of the enzymes that participate in lipid metabolism. Tests on animals demonstrated that the substance helps to reduce the expression of genes in fatty acid synthase (FAS), which catalyses the reaction of palmitic acid synthesis. The acid is then used to form, for example, triglycerides, stored in adipose tissue. Fucoxanthin metabolites were also observed to reduce the action of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, that is the enzyme connected with the transformation of glycerol into triglycerides, and to reduce the activity of the receptors PPAR-γ, responsible for the differentiation of preadipocytes into mature adipocytes.

Fucoxanthin helps to enhance insulin sensitivity in tissues. Fucoxanthin can affect the activity (translocation) of the glucose transporter GLUT4, found in skeletal muscles, which has been confirmed by tests on animals with induced diabetes. GLUT4 is an insulin-dependent transporter whose translocation to cell membranes is essential to glucose uptake for muscle cells. It leads to a reduction in blood glucose and insulin levels and helps to increase insulin sensitivity.

Fucoxanthin has numerous antioxidant properties. It has a unique chemical structure, which is slightly different from other xanthophylls – it has conjugated carbonyl groups and an epoxide group, which are responsible for the extraordinary antioxidant activity of the compound. Fucoxanthin neutralises free radicals, such as the superoxide radical, the hydroxyl radical, and the hypochlorous radical, which is a precursor of the superoxide anion radical. That way fucoxanthin supports the oxidant-antioxidant balance, whose disorders can lead to the development of many inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases as well as faster aging processes in the organism.

Fucoxanthin has a protective effect on the cardiovascular system. It has the ability to normalise the lipid profile – it helps to reduce blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which is a very important factor in the prevention of lifestyle diseases, such as overweight, obesity, atherosclerosis. Thanks to its unique effect on adipose tissue, fucoxanthin reduces the deposition of problematic adipose tissue in the abdominal area, which has been demonstrated by tests on animals. The deposition of adipose tissue in that area, which leads to abdominal obesity, is a particularly dangerous phenomenon that increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Fucoxanthin is a dietary supplement containing a natural compound with extraordinary properties. The preparation is recommended for reducing excessive adipose tissue, as an aid in combating overweight, obesity, and insulin resistance, and within lifestyle disease prevention.

Fucoxanthin

Information

Fucoxanthin is an organic chemical compound which belongs to a group of xanthophylls. It has been found in some marine organisms, including the algae Undaria pinnatifida and Laminaria japonica and the microalgae Phaeodactylum tricornutum and Cylindrotheca closterium. Due to its unique, chiral chemical structure, which is different from the structure of most carotenoids, fucoxanthin has special properties and pharmacological effects. 

Fucoxanthin is a potent antioxidant. In addition, it is believed to have antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective and slimming properties. Studies have shown that it may affect the expression of genes associated with lipid metabolism, stimulates the activity of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) and regulates leptin levels. It may also enhance tissue sensitivity to insulin.

In supplementation, fucoxanthin is used most frequently as a natural and safe aid to weight loss. It is used less often for health promotion purposes. Single-ingredient formulations with fucoxanthin derived from seaweed are available on the market. It is also frequently added to multi-ingredient slimming supplements.

Dosage: No official guidelines.

Seaweed

Information

Seaweed - in everyday language referred to algae living in sea water (salt water), among them also can be mentioned algae growing in the Baltic Sea, of kelp family, bladderwrack (in Poland uder protection). The number of marine algae is determined to be more than 10 000. They are sources of nutrients (vitamins A, C and E), minerals (iodine, calcium) and fibre. Some species of algae provide polysaccharides (fucoidans), with the anticancer potential. In addition to the nutrients, they have the ability to regulate lipid profile, facilitating the functioning of the thyroid gland. They are components of nutrients, vitamins and vitamin-mineral supporting reduction of body fat supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
