Garden of Life, FucoThin, 180 Softgels64 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

What is fücoThin?
FücoThin is a natural, whole food based supplement made with fucoxanthin combined with pomegranate seed oil, for a patent-pending formula that is naturally thermogenic.
What is thermogenesis?
Thermogenesis is the process by which the body increases its metabolic rate, requiring utilization of internal stores of energy such as fat. FücoThin supports metabolism without stimulating the central nervous system. In a human clinical trial, the metabolic rate with FücoThin was significantly higher than with diet alone.
What is fucoxanthin?
Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (like lutein and lycopene), a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. It is found in several different types of marine vegetables (edible seaweed), long considered among the most nutritious vegetation on Earth. Recent research suggests that natural compounds in marine vegetables can significantly affect fat metabolism and that fucoxanthin is one of the key ingredients that, along with diet and exercise, may have helped to minimize health and weight issues among Asian populations where it is consumed the most.
What Makes fücoThin Unique?
The only fucoxanthin formula with "Gold Standard" human clinical studies.
- 16 week, double blind, randomized and placebo controlled
- 150 overweight women on an 1800 calorie controlled diet
- Significant metabolic rate increase seen in the fücoThin group
- 14.5 lbs. lost with fücoThin compared to 3 lbs. with placebo
Dual Action Formula: fücoThin burns fat while providing antioxidant cellular protection.
Mechanism of Action: fücoThin works by increasing the expression of UCP1 in the mitochondrion of cells. This creates additional heat, or thermogenesis, within cells which burns fat.
Non-Stimulant: Unlike ephedra or caffeine, fücoThin burns fat without stimulating the central nervous system - no nervousness, jitters or lost sleep.
Adults take one softgel three times daily with food and at least 8 oz. of water. Not intended for children.
For Advanced Usage: Increase gradually to three softgels three times daily (9 softgels per day) with food and at least 8 oz. of water. If you are consuming two fücoProtein supplement bars per day, then advanced usage is two softgels three times daily (6 softgels per day) with food and at least 8 oz. of water. Use with calorie conscious diet and exercise.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I am 47 and have a sluggish metabolism - I have thyroid disease treated with Armour, spent more than a year on hormones and medications to treat fibroid tumors that caused a weight gain of more than 40 pounds. I have always exercised and eaten healthfully and really had tried every other weight loss supplement recommended by About.com thyroid guru Mary Shoman and tried Sensa and tried Integralean, all without results. Finally, something works. Yes, it's costly, but I am losing an average of a pound per week, which has been heretofore impossible. If there are side-effects, I haven't noticed them. i have been taking 3 per dose, 3 doses per day and yes, it took several weeks before I began to see a difference.
Absolutely a remarkable product, reverses insulin resistance and allows for weight loss. My blood sugars are now normal and I can get the weight off with the exercise and diet that didn't work before alone.
