The marine active ingredient mimics the effects of endurance training and looks to improve body definition by redefining areas sensitive to sagging, ageing or insufficient physical activity
Research and development company, Lipotec, has introduced ACTIGYM marine ingredient. By mimicking the effects of endurance training, it looks to improve body definition by redefining areas sensitive to sagging, ageing or insufficient physical activity.
The marine ingredient has proven efficacy in increasing the release of adiponectin from adipose release. This protein is released under aerobic training conditions and signals the skeletal muscle to enhance the metabolism of tonic fibers (type I) and their mitochondrial activity, so they can provide extra support to arms, legs and the abdomen.
To measure the body toning activity of ACTIGYM marine ingredient, an in vivo test was performed on a selected panel of women volunteers between the ages of 35-50 years old with sedentary life styles. The panel was divided into three different groups:
After 28 days, the volunteers with a sedentary lifestyle saw reductions of up to -2.8 cm in abdomen contour, and up to -2.1 cm in thigh after 56 days of treatment. This trend was also evident in the arms.
Results were even more impressive in volunteers who used the treatment in addition to performing standardised exercise. The results show that this novel marine ingredient can be adapted to a wide range of applications accommodating the lifestyles of modern consumers.

ACTIGYM marine ingredient is an extracellular substance produced by a microorganism inhabiting Bermuda (Bacillus sp) and is part of Lipotec’s product brand BIOINTEC blue biotechnology.
