Objective and Study Design

A pilot, single-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study was conducted to assess the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of Cirpusins® in 30 obese individuals for 90 days.


Subjects were administered Cirpusins® capsule (525 mg) or placebo 30 minutes before food twice a day.

  • A statistically significant reduction in body weight, body mass index, and waist circumference was observed in Cirpusins® group compared with placebo after 90 days
  • Significant improvement was seen in serum lipid profiles like total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, VLDL and HDL cholesterol levels
  • Moreover, Cirpusins® was found to be safe and well-tolerated by all the subjects (Figure 3)
