KiOnutrime-CsG® - The proven weight management tool



Kionutrime-csg® is a natural ingredient that is scientifically proven to help people to manage their weight. In a recently completed clinical trial1 it was found that overweight subjects consuming kionutrime-csg® lost an average of 3.2kg over three months, compared with a small weight increase on average in the control group.

Produced by kitozyme at its manufacturing facility in belgium, kionutrime-csg® works by safely preventing some of the fat in food from being absorbed by the body. It is a cationic (positively charged) biopolymer that binds with anionic (negatively charged) molecules such as fats and fatty acids and obstructs the emulsification and absorption of cholesterol. Taken just a few minutes before a meal, kionutrime-csg® will bind dietary fat in the stomach to form a gel that is later excreted naturally without being absorbed. A previous study carried out using a lab-based model of the human gut showed that kionutrime-csg® can bind 42% of the fats ingested in a typical meal2 , as shown below in figure 1. The latest human study, which is awaiting publication in a peer-reviewed journal, confirms that this mechanism has a statistically significant impact on weight loss in healthy overweight people.
