Laminaria extract comes from the Laminaria plant, which is found in seabeds throughout the world. This Laminaria plant contains an abundance of Iodine, which diet sites claim has slimming properties. The Nature’s Way website claims that if you are over 14 pounds overweight, by using Laminaria extract, you could lose up to one pound each day. However, this claim sounds a bit extreme to us.

Nature’s Way is the primary distributor of Laminaria extract, and they have been marketing this herbal ingredient since the late 1990′s. The official website claims that Nature’s Way have spent over five years researching Laminaria extract, but strangely they don’t seem to offer very much in the way of basic information. The official website has a comprehensive FAQ section that seems to answer many questions, but they are all fairly vague. There are two separate Laminaria products available from Natrure’s Way, and these are Laminaria Extract and Laminaria Extract Plus.

List of Ingredients

Laminaria Extract contains: Laminaria powder, Whey powder, Microcrystalline Cellulose (plant based), Iodine, Dicalcium Phosphate, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Calcium Sulphate, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate.

Laminaria Extract Plus contains: Laminaria powder, Whey powder, Microcrystalline Cellulose (plant based), Iodine, Dicalcium Phosphate, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Calcium Sulphate, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, Vitamin B-6, Lecithin, Cider Vinegar.

Product Features

Laminaria extract is all natural, and both of these products that are conveniently available from Nature’s Way don’t contain too many fillers or strange ingredients. Laminaria extract allegedly increases how your thyroid gland regulates the burning of fat in your body, which makes sense since Iodine has been shown to have a significant effect on the thyroid. The official Nature’s Way website insists that you don’t need to increase your exercise or decrease the amount of food you eat while taking Laminaria. The website also claims you can lose up to 28 pounds in just one month, which does sound a bit too good to be true.

There are numerous testimonials posted on the Nature’s Way site but there isn’t any research at all offered to back up any of these claims.

Advantages

  • Fairly cheap. Only $49.99 for a 2 month supply.
  • Contains Iodine, a proven thyroid regulator.

Disadvantages

  • No research is available to prove Laminaria extract can offer the dramatic weight loss results that Nature’s Way claims.
  • Doesn’t reduce your appetite or burn fat.
  • Any users with a documebnted thryoid condition should talk to a doctor before taking Laminaria, or any other high-iodine product.

Conclusion

There isn’t very much information available on Laminaria extract, but it is sold by quite a few companies now. If you decide to order some, we recommend you stick to well known websites only. We don’t have enough information to recommend this product at all. Oddly, most of the discussion forums we checked seem to believe this product did help them lose a few pounds. This could just be a marketing technique, since some users didn’t lose a single pound after a month. If you want to try Laminaria extract, we recommend combining it with a diet product that combines an appetite suppressant and powerful fat burner. Also, if you are concerned about an existing thryoid condition, Laminaria may not be the herbal supplement for you.

    No, it doesn’t work!! Just another pill designed to take money from desperate and vulnerable people like me. 4 weeks without dropping a kilo! I’d love to know where all the positive feedback came from on their website.

    I have used lamainaria extract plus and it does NOT seem to be working. I was further convinced when I signed into the members area and they offer a refund or a months supply of pills if you give a positive review. No wonder people are giving good reviews. They can get a refund. I will finish this months supply but am not convinced.
