ADIPO-TRAP is a slimming, re-shaping and anti-cellulite active ingredient derived from sundew, a carnivorous plant characterized by a phytocomplex with two main molecular peculiarities: the adhesive polysaccharide secretion of the trap and secondary metabolites with anti-inflammatory and bio-active properties.
During in vitro tests performed using preadipocyte and adipocyte cell models, ADIPO-TRAP was able to reduce the fat accumulation during the adipogenesis process and to reduce the adipocyte size, showing an efficient lipolysis effect.
During a within-patient clinical trial performed on 20 volunteers, ADIPO-TRAP was shown to be able to act as a slimming and reshaping active ingredient, reducing thigh circumference by 1.4 cm in just 2 weeks.
ADIPO-TRAP was also able to start reducing cellulite and cellulite-related pain in just 2 weeks.
