Is Fucoxanthin safe and effective for weight loss?

Is fucoxanthin safe to take as a supplement for weight loss?  I've heard good things about it, but I'm concerned it could be another scam herbal supplement...and it's WAY too expensive to try out if there are no results!  That 'FucoTHIN' stuff at Whole Foods is $40 a bottle, and it only lasts 10 days!  Zoinks!

First of all, it sounds way too expensive, that they are ripping you off from the start.  Secondly, I wouldn't recommend taking diet pills.  I would take a multi-vitamin every day and leave it at that.  Eat healthy food and exercise at least 3 times a week.  This is how you will healthily lose weight.  You can join a gym for as much as that pill costs.

Here's some information I found on Fucoxanthin. 

Fucoxanthin is being explored for weight loss. So far, only animal studies have been done. Japanese researchers have found that fucoxanthin (isolated from wakame) promotes the loss of abdominal fat in obese mice and rats. Animals lost five to 10% of their body weight.

Although it's not fully understood how fucoxanthin works, it appears to target a protein called UCP1 that increases the rate at which abdominal fat is burned. Abdominal fat, also called white adipose tissue, is the kind of fat that surrounds our organs and is linked to heart disease and diabetes. Fucoxanthin also appears to stimulate the production of DHA, one of the omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon.

Although it's promising and already a popular nutritional supplement, more research is needed to determine if fucoxanthin will work in the same way in humans. If it does prove to be effective, fucoxanthin could be developed into a diet pill for obesity.

Every story has an end but in life, every end is just a new beginning.

Is fucoxanthin safe to take with Armour Thyroid Extract?  I have been taking Fucoxanthin for 4 months.  I also take 90mg of Armour Thryoid Extract.  For the last 3 weeks, I have experienced increased hunger, intolerance to heat, increased body temperature and an overall irritability.

Nope I would avoid that, sounds more like a rip-off to me. Try adding some natural foods that help burn body fat.
