Clinical study supports use of OmniLean Salacia Extract for appetite reduction
MORRISTOWN, N.J. — In the recent CARBS (an acronym for Carbohydrate, Appetite Reduction, Blood Sugar and Satiety) study, researchers at Rutgers University observed that a proprietary salacia extract demonstrated appetite reduction, satiety and blood sugar management benefits.
Native to the Indian subcontinent, salacia is a genus of woody climbers well known for its traditional use in Ayurveda as a medicinal food supplement for various health conditions.
CARBS was a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, 3-way cross-over study and the first to examine the effects of a proprietary extract of Salacia chinensis (from OmniLean) on glycemic indices and gut hormones after a meal. OmniLean, taken with a meal, resulted in an improved glycemic response and changes in gut hormones in healthy overweight/obese individuals, thereby reducing blood sugar spikes and impacting appetite and satiety.
"The herb, Salacia chinensis, was shown to reduce glycemic indices and affect gut peptides after a meal. What does this mean? It means Salacia chinensis from OmniLean may be an appetite modulator, and because it lowers glycemic indices, would be beneficial to persons at risk for diabetes including overweight/obese person," stated Sue Shapses, one of the lead researchers on the CARBS Study.
"The myriad complexities of being overweight need to be addressed by a multipronged approach including diet and exercise, but may also benefit greatly by making a small change such as incorporating a natural supplement like OmniLean to your daily regimen," said Abhijit Bhattacharya, president of OmniActive Health Technologies, producers of OmniLean Salacia Extract. "The CARBS Study demonstrated that OmniLean reduced the feeling of hunger and reduced spikes in blood sugar—key components of weight management—which may be the missing piece for a vast population struggling with maintaining a healthy weight."
