Merastin Released in Life Extension Product

BENICIA, Calif.Merastin, a weight-management ingredient from InterHealth Nutraceuticals, is featured in a new product from Life Extension. Anti-Adipocyte Formula with AdipoStat will be sold directly to consumers and in health food retailers, healthcare practitioners and independent pharmacies.

Life Extensions Anti-Adipocyte Formula is designed to modulate the activity of biomolecular pathways involved in fat cell formation and breakdown. This benefit is due to Merastins blend of two proprietary plant extracts, Sphaeranthus indicus flower heads and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind.

InterHealth said preliminary results from two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies demonstrate the safety and efficacy of Merastin. It said research shows Merastin reduce body weight as well as reduce hip and waist circumference after two weeks of use. Preliminary results from the second clinical study demonstrating significant average weight loss of over 4 pounds at two weeks and over 11 pounds at eight weeks were presented at the 2011 Experimental Biology meeting in April in Washington.

Based on an exhaustive review of the science and clinical studies behind Merastin, the choice for Life Extension was clear," said Steven V. Joyal, M.D., vice president of scientific affairs for Life Extension. Merastin, in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise, provides natural support for healthy weight management."

Paul Dijkstra, InterHealths CEO added, Given the brand recognition and consumer trust and dedication to Life Extensions research and products, Anti-Adipocyte Formula is certain to attract consumer attention."

Life Extension also published an article in its July 2011 issue of Life Extension Magazine® titled Shed Pounds by Inhibiting Cellular Fat Storage," which offered information about how Anti-Adipocyte Formula can help with consumers weight management efforts.
