Pharmanex, a Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE: NUS) company, announced today a study that found Tegreen 97(R) to provide blood sugar control, body fat burning properties and weight-loss benefits in an experimental setting of Metabolic Syndrome X subjects -- a precursor to type-2 diabetes. The findings of the new study were recently presented at the American Heart Association's Sixth Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.

"We are honored by the American Heart Association's invitation to present our newest findings on Tegreen 97," said Joe Chang, Ph.D., president of Pharmanex. "The results of this study are very meaningful in building a greater body of knowledge related to two significant health issues today: weight gain and lack of blood sugar control. We have shown with this and other studies that Tegreen 97 can have a significant beneficial effect in managing these two health conditions."

Tegreen 97(R) is a proprietary, decaffeinated green tea extract standardized to 97 percent polyphenols -- two-thirds of which are catechins, the element responsible for the observed effect. Each capsule of Tegreen 97(R) contains the same amount of catechins as seven cups of the traditionally brewed green tea drink.

About the Study
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Tegreen 97(R) in enhancing insulin sensitivity and improving glucose-lipid metabolism. In addition, the research examined the effects of the proprietary green tea supplement in lowering body weight and weight of abdominal fat and inhibiting angiogenesis, which is the formation and differentiation of blood vessels, a key pathological process in the development of abnormal cells. Angiogenesis is hypothesized to play an important role in development of obesity. Following are the results of the study:


• Tegreen 97(R) enhanced insulin sensitivity
• Improved glucose-lipid metabolism
• Increased fat burning and decreased body fat percentage
• Lowered body weight associated with inhibited angiogenesis.

"Our findings proved that in addition to its significance in protecting cells from abnormal mutation, inhibition of angiogenesis by Tegreen 97 is associated with reduction of body weight," said Josh Zhu, senior director of clinical R&D for Pharmanex and chief researcher of the study. "Tegreen 97 not only supports the general belief in the anti-aging benefits of tea catechins but may also provide benefits to people with Metabolic Syndrome X, overweight and those with subsequent cardiovascular and brain health concerns."

Tegreen 97(R) is also included in LifePak(R), the company's comprehensive multivitamin/mineral and antioxidant supplement.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
