In the range of products to help women and men lose weight and end their cravings, we are today testing CAPTOGRAISSE GUM, a “fat eater for your figure”, according to the announcements made by the resellers.
We wanted to know if these slimming chewing gums are effective or not…
Presentation and promises of Captograisse Gum
Captograisse Gum is a slimming chewing gum designed according to a “exceptional formula to better manage your food gaps”.
This product is in the form of chewing gum.
The manufacturer recommends chewing 2 Captograisse Gum after each meal.
These slimming gummies are available in mint flavor and grapefruit flavor.
According to the reseller sites, Captograisse Gum would have the following advantages:
- Captures fat from food – “fat eater” effect;
- Restores normal carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism;
- Helps maintain normal sugar levels;
- Acts against cravings thanks to its sweet taste that satisfies without bringing additional sugar to the body;
- Has antibacterial properties that allow, in addition to losing weight, reducing the risk of cavities and eliminating food residues.
Captograisse Gum comes with a nutritional guide, which gives different information to promote weight loss.
The manufacturer of Captograisse Gum
Unfortunately, we only deal with reseller sites, which do not reveal the precise identity of the manufacturer of Captograisse Gum.
We contacted the customer service of one of these reseller sites to find out more, and we give you, word for word, the answer we received:
“Our products are manufactured in a French laboratory”
We would have liked to obtain more precise information.
Knowing the identity of the manufacturer of a product intended for consumption makes it possible to get an idea of the traceability, quality and safety of the substances used in the composition of the product.
Moreover, in our view, transparency is not a problem when you are a laboratory that is sure of the quality and reliability of its products.
We let you judge for yourself based on the information collected…
Captograisse Gum Ingredients
Captograisse chewing gum is composed of the following ingredients:
1. Thallus of Ascophyllum Nosodum:
This is another name for kelp, or bladderwrack, a common brown seaweed said to have positive effects on weight management and lymph circulation.
This seaweed is said to boost the immune system, help maintain balanced blood glucose levels, reduce fatigue and high blood pressure, and is sometimes used to treat hypothyroidism due to iodine deficiency.
Like many other algae, ascophyllum nosodum swells when it comes in contact with liquids in the stomach.
By increasing in volume, it increases the feeling of satiety and reduces the amount of food (and therefore calories) ingested.
It is also used for its anti cellulite properties.
We have reserved a complete article on the benefits of seaweed on health in general, and on weight loss in particular, which you could consult by clicking here.
By causing an increase in insulin production in the body, zinc helps regulate blood sugar levels.
It also has the ability to stimulate the production of leptin, a hormone linked to satiety and appetite control.
This trace element acts on the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids.
It acts on fat metabolism through its action on insulin, which plays a key role in the balance of certain enzymes linked to lipid metabolism.
In addition to this, chromium helps reduce triglyceride levels and increase good cholesterol.
Overall, it contributes to a good lipid profile.
The science behind Captograisse Gum
No studies targeting the precise effects of the special formula of Captograisse Gum have been carried out.
However, we can note the results of scientific research obtained on the main ingredient of Captograisse Gum chewing gum, namely ascophyllum nosodum.
A 2012 pilot study investigated the effects of taking ascophyllum nosodum on overweight subjects.
The participants, separated into 2 groups, received for breakfast either bread enriched with ascophyllum nosodum (4%) or unenriched bread.
The results showed that people who consumed the enriched bread reduced their calorie consumption by 16.4% at the next meal, ie 4 hours later.
Consuming ascophyllum nosodum did not cause any changes in their blood sugar or cholesterol levels, or a reduction in appetite.

Despite the promising results of science, we are right to wonder if this seaweed has the same effects when taken as an extract in chewing gum, as when consumed in another common form.
Side effects and contraindications of Captograisse Gum
A priori the ingredients present in Captograisse Gum and their dosage do not present any risk of adverse effects.
The algae can lead to disorders of the thyroid gland, but this depends on consumption in very high doses, which is not the case with the dosage included in Captograisse Gum chewing gums.
As a precautionary measure, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using these chewing gums.

Our opinion on Captograisse Gum
During our investigation, we were able to identify the only positive point, which is the presence of promising ingredients recognized by science in the composition of Captograisse Gum.
On the other hand, the lack of information about the manufacturer, the uncertainty about the effectiveness of the ingredients packaged in the form of chewing gum and the high price of this product tend to tip the balance towards a negative evaluation.
In other words, even if the ingredients of Captograisse Gum are reliable, we have doubts about the possible effectiveness of a slimming supplement in the form of chewing gum.
Added to this is the lack of information about the manufacturer, which leads us to reject this product.
