What You Should Know
Anatabloc is an anti-inflammatory supplement in lozenge form. The supplement contains just one active ingredient. We found some support for this ingredient in terms of smoking cessation and the company behind Anatabloc produces a smoking cessation supplement CiGRX with this same active ingredient. However, the clinical study needed to support using anatabine to reduce inflammation does not exist. Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals is working with the Roskamp Institute to study the effects of anatabine on inflammation. Currently, the only information on the Roskamp Institute website relating to this ingredient is associated with inflammation and Alzheimer’s disease, not typical inflammation.

- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D3
In November 2011, some forum posts popped up regarding a clinical trial of Anatabloc for chronic inflammation associated with some diseases, like Crohn’s disease. According to one user’s reaction, anatabine worked to reduce or eliminate much of the inflammation and pain associated with the condition. Not all doctors are sold on the effect, however. There is little clinical research on Anatabloc or anatabine. We found a few news stories about the current research results, but each quoted the same user over and over again. If the company wants to tout the positive clinical research, we need to hear from more than one user in the study.
There is no connection between the clinical research and basic inflammation associated with being overweight or obese. .The study concentrates on inflammation as a symptom of a disease process. Obesity is considered a condition of inflammation, but the symptoms are relieved by weight loss, not supplementation.
Anatabloc sells for $100 per 20 day supply. This is much more expensive than other weight loss and natural supplements for improved overall health. Without the clinical research to back up the supplement, we have little faith the company will sell many boxes until they can prove the supplement works for everyone suffering inflammation.
- We found the list of ingredients on the official Anatabloc website.
- There is a clinical study on the effects of Anatabloc on inflammation.
- May relieve inflammation caused by the disease process.
- Not all doctors are convinced Anatabloc works.
- Not tested on overweight and obese dieters suffering inflammation separate from a disease process.
- Only one testimonial is associated with the clinical trial.
Anatabloc could prove extremely beneficial for dieters who suffer inflammation, but there is just not enough data to support the supplement. Further research, or at least a more comprehensive explanation of the current studies results, is needed before this supplement can be supported.
