News Release

Licorice Flavonoid Oil with Glavonoid

Swanson Health Products introduces an exciting addition to the Swanson Best Weight-Control Formulas: Licorice Flavonoid Oil. Licorice Flavonoid Oil is a “nutrigenomic” supplement, meaning it is a nutritional substance that works on a genetic level.

Fargo, ND (Vocus) March 05, 2010—Nutrigenomics is the study of how foods affect genetics and how individual genetic differences can affect the way bodies respond to nutrients and other naturally occurring compounds. Glavonoid™ is the first supplement to be referred to as a “nutrigenomic” supplement—a nutritional substance that actually works at the genetic level. Swanson Health Products announced that the patented ingredient, Glavonoid, is now available in Swanson Best Weight-Control Formula Licorice Flavonoid Oil.

There are two primary types of fat: subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat is located just underneath the skin, while visceral fat is located beneath the muscles and surrounding vital organs. Glavonoid is an ingredient that has been clinically shown to reduce fat—especially visceral belly fat.

Dr. Fumiki Aoki, Senior Scientist with Kaneka Nutrients L.P., explains, “People often say they can’t lose weight because it’s ‘in their genes.’ To an extent, this may be true. We know that information from our genes has broad influence on our biological makeup. Glavonoid represents a new and emerging field known as ‘nutrigenomics,’ which refers to the study of how nutrients interact with our genes. Research suggests that Glavonoid helps mediate lipid [fat] metabolism by influencing related gene expression in the liver. This does not mean it alters your DNA in any way. Rather, it means that it affects the biological output of those genes related to this specific metabolic activity.”

In an exclusive interview regarding Glavonoid™ Licorice Flavonoid Oil, Dr. Fumiki Aoki shares his firsthand experience with developing this remarkable nutraceutical. He explains how it can help us face the challenges of metabolic health and weight maintenance so pervasive in today's society.
