Lignaform slimming phases

The manufacturer of Lignaform

Therascience Laboratories are behind the Lignaform slimming treatment.

Therascience has specialized in the research, development and manufacture of dietary supplements, phytotherapy, dietetic products and sports products since 1998.

The company was founded by two nutritionist doctors, who focus on training health professionals to offer support to people wishing to give themselves the best chance of succeeding in their objectives.

Therascience has established research partnerships with public and private bodies, such as the CNRS and INSERM, to offer the very best ingredients.

Therascience is also a member of the Syndicat National des Compléments Alimentaires SYNADIET, which guarantees compliance with regulatory and health requirements in product design and manufacture.

Lignaform cure ingredients

As we have already mentioned, Lignaform products are preparations for snacks, drinks or ready-made meals, to be used either as a meal or as a snack.

The ingredients in all these preparations are a variety of foods, plus the method’s flagship ingredient: proteins.

According to the website, the proteins in Lignaform products are scientifically selected for their nutritional quality. In fact, their quality is controlled according to current CEDAP standards.

These standards classify the value of proteins according to a chemical index. For proteins to be of high quality, this index must be greater than or equal to 100. Lignaform proteins have a CEDAP index of 102, which means they provide an optimal quantity of essential amino acids for the body.

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 most important energy consumption. Absorbing protein requires the body to break down the protein into amino acids, which in turn requires energy. The energy provided by proteins is almost totally consumed by their own breakdown.

A wide range of Lignaform preparations are available: sweet and savoury cakes, sweet and savoury pancakes, galettes, soufflés, soups, drinks, cereals, cakes, desserts, cookies, bars, pasta, ready meals, spreads…
Lignaform products are made without aspartame and with natural flavors.

Scientific studies on Lignaform slimming cure

The official website does not mention any clinical studies validating the Lignaform slimming method.

However, the value of protein in a slimming diet has already been the subject of much research, and it has been shown that a high protein intake promotes weight loss while maintaining muscle mass.

A 2010 study blindly compared 4 different types of diet:
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 high-protein, low-GI diet, i.e. low in sugars, resulted in better weight loss, as well as better long-term stabilization.

Side effects and contraindications of the Lignaform method

The official website does not indicate any side effects or contraindications to consider when taking the Lignaform cure.

However, we recommend that pregnant or breast-feeding women avoid a low-calorie diet. Medical advice is strongly recommended for anyone wishing to adopt this method.
