New study show that ProGo™ significantly reduces BMI

Hofseth BioCare ASA's new study on the effects of HBCs salmon protein ProGo™ has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Obesity & Weight Loss Therapy in USA.

The article titled “A Placebo-Controlled, Randomized Study on the Impact of Dietary Salmon Protein Hydrolysate Supplementation on Body Mass Index in Overweight Human Subjects”, shows that a daily dietary intake of 16 g of HBCs salmon protein hydrolysate for 42 days, statistically significantly reduced Body Mass Index by 5.6 % in overweight subjects, in comparison with whey protein isolate as a placebo-control.

Four metabolism-relevant serum biomarkers - bile acid, interleukin-6, Preheparin lipoprotein lipase mass and adiponectin - were also positively impacted using one-tailed, paired student t-test analysis, leading  to the proposed metabolism-elevating mode-of-action. Diet and exercise levels were maintained for each subject as per their normal levels.

HBC has already started further research to identify the active individual peptide components in ProGo™ in terms of specific biological activity for obesity control. Salmon protein hydrolysate powder in supplemental doses may be a useful tool in the long-term management of obesity.


"Obesity is a major global health problem with over 3 million adults dying each year from obesity related complications. Overweight and obese individuals with abnormal or excessive fat accumulation are at increased risk of type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders, particularly cancer," says Dr. Bomi Framroze, Chief Scientific Officer at Hofseth BioCare ASA.
