IRVINE, Calif.—Cyvex Nutrition launched SolaThin™, a weight-management ingredient ideal for supplements and beverages. It is a pure potato-protein extract consisting of several low molecular weight proteins, including protease inhibitor PI-2. The company's vegetable-sourced offering contains no added compounds and features more than 90-percent protein, PI-2 included, to promote optimized satiety and healthful, effective weight management.
"With approximately 60 million U.S. adults considered to be overweight, SolaThin provides manufacturers with 20 years of university-affiliated research that confirms its ability to safely promote weight loss with no observable side effects," said Matt Phillips, president and CEO of Cyvex Nutrition.
PI-2 enables the release of cholecystokinin (CKK), a naturally occurring peptide clinically shown to produce a feeling of gastric fullness, and thus can help reduce food consumption up to 20-percent in reported results.SolaThin is highly stable and active, and as with all Cyvex ingredients, GMO-free SolaThin undergoes rigorous identity testing and third-party certification to assure a safe, pure and highly bioavailable end product.
