Ecklonia Cava – Obesity / Weight Loss
Obviously, Ecklonia Cava Extract’s many health benefits provide additional cardiovascular protection for obese and morbidly patients, who are more prone to cardiovascular and coronary heart disease. As discussed, ECE lowers LDL cholesterol, suppresses triglyceride fabrication, promotes healthy blood flow, lowers blood pressure,and scavenges free radicals, to name a few.
DGAT Inhibition & Obesity
DGAT inhibition has recently been recognized as a novel and safe target for the treatment of obesity. DGAT (diacylglycerol acyltransferase) is a key enzyme involved in intestinal fat absorption, triglyceride levels, fat storage, and energy metabolism in muscles. In a mouse study in which DGAT was inhibited, mice demonstrated obesity resistance with a high-fat diet. ECE compounds are found to inhibit DGAT.
Ecklonia Cava Extract Beverage:
2-Week Clinical Trial
With a human study, 141 young adults were given a beverage containing ECE at 200 mg daily. In two weeks their regular weight dropped nearly 2.5 pounds, muscle mass increased by nearly 2.5 pounds, and body fat dropped by 4 pounds, or 7.48%. ECE stimulates the body to burn fat by increasing muscle mass.
The Diacylglycerol acetyl transferase (DGAT) is an vital enzyme involved in triglyceride synthesis. Triglycerides are circulating fat molecules that ultimately wind up in the fat cells, and are almost always elevated in diabetes. They also have emerged as a major risk factor for vascular diseases. Dr. Lee found that ECE compounds inhibited DGAT more than 50%. In genetically caused obese laboratory rats, ECE reduced body fat and increased physical activity. In another study, ECE caused leanness and fat-resistance in animals given a high fat diet.
