Study Design

1.1. Title

Evaluation of the slimming efficacy of a food supplement – controlled study vs. placebo.

1.2. Aim of the study

Aim of the study is to evaluate the slimming efficacy of a food supplement (in comparison with a placebo formulation) in terms of reduction of body weight and body circumferences. In order to reach this goal, a clinical-instrumental study is carried out on 40 healthy subjects, aged between 25 and 65 years old, showing mild to moderate localized adiposity on waistline, hips and legs and 25<BMI<35. After inclusion in the study, volunteers are divided in two groups of 20 subjects each: one group intakes the tested product and the other one the placebo formulation. Product efficacy is evaluated after 15 and 30 days of its use by means of the evaluation of waistline, hips and thighs circumferences and the assessment of body weight. These instrumental analysis are integrated with the self-assessment of subjects participating in the study.
