The manufacturer of Lignaform
It is the Therascience laboratories that sign the Lignaform slimming cure.
Therascience specializes in the research, development and manufacture of food supplements, herbal medicine, dietary and sports products since 1998.
The company was founded by two nutritionists, who focus on training for health professionals wishing to offer support to people wishing to put all the chances on their side to achieve their goals.
Therascience has established research partnerships with public and private organizations, such as CNRS or INSERM, to offer the best ingredients.
The lab is also a member of the National Syndicate of Food Supplements SYNADIET, which guarantees compliance with regulatory and health requirements in the design and manufacture of products.
The ingredients of the Lignaform treatment
As we have already mentioned, Lignaform products are preparations for snacks, drinks, or ready meals, to be used either as a meal or as a snack.
The ingredients present in all these preparations are diverse and varied foods, to which is added the star ingredient of the method: proteins.
The proteins present in Lignaform products are, according to the site, scientifically selected for their nutritional quality. Their quality is also controlled according to the CEDAP standards in force.
These standards establish a classification of the value of proteins thanks to a classification determined by a chemical index. For the proteins to be of high quality, this index must be greater than or equal to 100. Lignaform proteins have a CEDAP index of 102, that is to say that they provide an optimal quantity of essential amino acids to the ‘organization.
The proteins in Lignaform products come from milk, soy, peas or eggs.
Each Lignaform preparation provides 18g of protein, an optimal quantity to increase metabolism, reinforce the feeling of satiety, and therefore reduce calorie intake and activate fat burning.
Protein intake helps maintain a high metabolism. The basic metabolism represents an energy expenditure of 1200 Kcal per day, which is by far the first energy consumption. The absorption of proteins forces the body to make an effort to break down proteins into amino acids, which leads to the expenditure of energy. The energy provided by proteins is almost totally consumed by their own degradation.
There is a very wide range of Lignaform preparations: savory or sweet cakes, savory or sweet pancakes, pancakes, soufflés, soups, drinks, cereals, cakes, desserts, biscuits, bars, pasta, ready meals, spreads, etc.
Lignaform products are made without aspartame, with natural flavors.
Scientific studies concerning the Lignaform slimming treatment
The official website does not mention any clinical study validating the Lignaform slimming method.
However, the value of protein in a weight loss diet has already been the subject of much research, and a high protein intake has been shown to promote weight loss while maintaining muscle mass.
A 2010 study blindly compared 4 different types of diets:
1. Low protein, low GI (Glycemic Index) diet;
2. Low-protein, high-GI diet;
3. High protein, low GI diet;
4. High protein, high GI diet.
The results showed that a diet rich in protein and low GI, that is to say low in sugars, leads to better weight loss, as well as better stabilization over the long term.
