2-Mar-2022

A published study, led by Sabinsa Chair and founder Dr Muhammed Majeed, evaluated the clinical efficacy and safety of Calebin A in managing weight in 40 obese or overweight individuals for 90 days

Sabinsa has launched CurCousin, a branded ingredient which contains Calebin A, a curcumin analog naturally present in Curcuma longa and Curcuma caesia.

The ingredient is designed to help balance cholesterol and support healthy blood sugar levels and circulation. It also supports a healthy body weight by inhibiting adipogenesis (fat cells). The product is clinically supported for a dosage of 25 mg twice a day.  The company holds 65 US and international patents on this product, which also has self-affirmed GRAS status. 

A published study, led by Sabinsa Chair and founder Dr Muhammed Majeed, evaluated the clinical efficacy and safety of Calebin A in managing weight in 40 obese or overweight individuals for 90 days. The subjects were administered one 25 mg Calebin A capsule twice a day, and after 90 says, significant reduction in body weight and body mass index were observed in the supplementation group compared with placebo. A significant change in serum biomarkers like leptin, adiponectin, and cortisol was also observed in the study subjects, with improved blood lipid profiles. Moreover, Calebin A was found to be safe and well-tolerated by all the subjects. These results suggest Calebin A is effective in managing healthy body weight by inhibiting adipogenesis and supporting metabolic health, Sabinsa says.
