Carob Extract Prevents Insulin Resistance in Overweight Mice
An April 2020 animal study showed positive effects of Pharmactive’s (Madrid, Spain) branded CSAT+, a patented carob extract, on blood sugar and cholesterol in mice fed a high-fat, high-sugar diet.
Julia Diaz, head of marketing for Pharmactive, says the company will be investing in a new in vivo study this year to demonstrate CSAT+’s efficacy for weight management. “Weight loss is no longer about calorie counting but about achieving optimum health,” Diaz comments. “Supplement formulators are moving away from quick-fix miracle solutions to more scientifically sound ingredients.”
