Claiming to come from all natural ingredients, Fucothin promises it’s users a thermogenic diet pill that will help boost metabolism, as well as utilize stores of fat for energy. The end result of this being a new, healthier self that the user sees in the mirror.
But are these claims true? Is Fucothin really the “#1 diet product in the natural products industry” or does it hide behind words such as natural so that people will assume that it’s product is better than it is? We decided to do some investigating and find out.
Fucothin is manufactured by the Palm Beach Gardens, Florida based Garden of Life. Garden of life promotes all natural health and wellness products, that it sells in addition to Fucothin. In the past however Garden of Life has had run ins with the Fair Trade Comission (FTC) over it’s business practices. Fucothin can be purchased on the company’s website, as well as 3rd party retailers such as Amazon.com.
Fucothin works through a process known as thermogenesis. Thermogeneis is the process by which the body’s core temperature is raised, which then allows for the metabolic rate to be raised as well. This in turn helps burn fat at an accelerated rate. To achieve this, users are instructed to take 3 soft gel capsules a day, one before each major meal. Fucothin mentions that it may take 6-8 weeks to see any results.
Despite the confidence behind it’s claims, not all users found their results as typical, if any at all, especially without regular diet and exercise.
There are only two ingredients included in Fucothin. Unlike other diet pills, Fucothin does not try to jam pack it’s product full of healthy ingredients, which get diluted to the point of uselessness with everything else that is included in them. Like top 10 diet pills, the ingredients included in Fucothin are all natural.
There are no reported side effects from use of this product.
There are no reported side effects from using Fucothin, unlike other competing diet pills that are stimulant based. Fucoxanthin does contain high levels of iodine, which can negatively effect the thyroid, but the amount that comes in Fucothin is small enough that these negative effects should not arise.
Unlike other diet pills on the market, Fucothin does not market itself as fast acting. If you are impatient with wanting to see results, this may not be the product for you.
Instead, users are expected to see the results within 6-8 weeks, and that’s including a diet and exercise plan. All this may sound ok, but when looking at it on a deeper level, one can’t really tell if the weight loss is happening because of the pill itself or the other external factors at play.
And even though the ingredients included in Fucothin are all natural, that doesn’t mean that they are the most effective. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not even approved this product as valid by it’s claims. As it stands now it’s really us, the consumer, taking the company’s word for it in how effective it is. Studies on the company’s website show how effective fucoxanthin is, but fucoxanthin isn’t the same as Fucothin, the actual product in question. Other diet pill companies use a similar strategy with this, addressing the effectiveness of their ingredients while not mentioning if the actual product itself is effective. The two can sound similar, but the difference can mean everything.
The words “all natural” are used all too much in the diet pill world to cover up actual effectiveness. Always do research into a product before taking it’s word; just because a product says it is “all natural” that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is effective in what it claims to do.
If you want to lose weight, there are a couple universal truths that you have to digest before continuing. Number 1: Diet and exercise are key to any weight loss program. Without these two weight loss may very well not happen. Diet pills that offer a quick fix solution should be looked at with skepticism. Secondly it must be remembered that just because ingredients are healthy, that doesn’t mean that they are effective. On the first point Fucothin succeeds, not trying to blind buyers with unfair promises. On the second point the product tries to act as if it’s real, as if it is a more effective diet pill than it really is. While on the surface seeming legitimate, a little research finds hollow areas in the marketing campaign that it pretends were never there.
