GenoTrim to play a role on the nation's obesity crisis by addressing
genetics associated with hunger and excess weight.
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Salugen, Inc., a personalized health and wellness company, announced the launch of GenoTrim, a DNA-based nutritional solution for weight management*. Attempts to achieve a healthy weight through both standard weight reduction strategies and numerous "gimmicks" have proven unsuccessful for the 58 million overweight individuals in the U.S. GenoTrim uniquely identifies specific genetic factors affecting hunger, metabolism and body composition that may contribute to the weight challenges of many of these individuals.
"GenoTrim tests for five key genes associated with the hereditary contributors to weight and hunger. From the genetic analysis, the individual is provided a nutrient formulation guided by their genetic profile," stated Lonna J. Williams, COO and SVP of Marketing at Salugen, Inc. Williams goes on to say, "GenoTrim is not a lose-weight-quick or magic pill. By addressing gene mutations inhibiting one's ability to manage weight, it provides a measure of control and help to break through obstacles encountered in previous weight loss efforts. Importantly, healthy eating and exercise are essential to proper weight management."
GenoTrim and its ingredients are supported by numerous published clinical studies including the award winning study Dietary Investigation to Evaluate Treatments (D.I.E.T.), lead by Dr. Ken Blum, Chief Scientific Officer of Salugen and a professor in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Compared to most nutritional supplements, GenoTrim ingredient combinations have been proven in published, randomized, double-blinded placebo-controlled studies to result in weight loss. In three published clinical studies, GenoTrim resulted in an average weight loss of 12.8 lbs, 17.15 lbs and 26.96 lbs in as few as 8 weeks. Additionally, GenoTrim resulted in significant reductions in sugar cravings and appetite, as well as improvements in sleep and mood.*
Positive case studies have been received from among the 1500 pilot study participants. Additional prospective studies are ongoing. GenoTrim can be purchased through Salugen's distribution partner DNA Services of America or at http://www.GenoTrim.com .
GenoTrim is a DNA-customized nutritional solution for weight management. Based upon an analysis of five important genes effecting weight, GenoTrim ingredients and dosages are genetically-guided to address the underlying genetic factors involved in hormones and metabolism that Harvard Medical Experts suggest influence 70% to 80% of overweight cases. By addressing genetic factors that make individuals prone to weight problems, GenoTrim has demonstrated in studies to help reduce weight, appetite, sugar cravings, snacking, and late-night eating, as well as help support improved sleep, mood, and energy levels which results in sustainable weight loss.
