The University of Sabaragamuwa, Faculty of Applied Sciences, conducted research based on three FADNA products; ShapeUp Tea, Ezy Tea and Immunni Tea, recently. The extensive study carried out by the university was proposed to the 28th International Conference on Functional Foods, USA and were accepted for presentation.

FADNA places much importance in continuous research and study, with the objective of manufacturing healthy and natural products for an active, happy and healthy lifestyle for their consumers. The partnership with one of the leading local universities in food and health studies, the University of Sabaragamuwa, has ensured that such research is conducted on a regular basis to ensure the effectiveness, quality and richness of FADNA herbal products.

“As a brand that has health and wellness at the heart of it, FADNA understands that it is crucial for our consumers to know what goes into the herbal tea they consume, and how it will benefit them. This is why we stress on doing research on a regular basis. It has shown us that we are on the correct path, and has guided us to further improve our products,” explained Food and Nature Pvt. Ltd. Managing Director Chamendra Somathunga.

He further added, “The Faculty of Applied Sciences at the University of Sabaragamuwa is a leading research institute in this sector and have been collaborating with FADNA for many studies of this kind.

Their academic expertise, together with the quality research facilities they possess has made them the ideal partner for us”.

The study conducted on FADNA ShapeUp Tea revealed that the two main ingredients, Garcenia carmbogia and Camellia sinensis, are two plants that carry hypolipidemic mechanisms and weight loss potential. Both these plants have been used extensively for culinary purposes in Asian countries for over centuries, without any harmful effects.

(−)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) in Garcenia carmbogia along with catechins, caffeine and flavonoids in Camellia sinensis are the major compounds responsible for the anti-obesity effect. It further highlights the fact that a product which has a combination of these two plants can have a great weight loss potential and be a more promising weight loss supplement. As the main ingredients in FADNA ShapeUp Tea, this establishes the harmless effectiveness of the product, adding more value than a normal green tea.

Similarly, the herbal ingredients in both FADNA Ezy Tea and Immunni Tea, with their goodness proved in centuries old Ayurveda medicine, have been studied closely by the experts at the University of Sabaragamuwa. -CT
