October 2011/NutraSolutions -- Cyvex Nutrition and Holland-based Solanic recently announced a global distribution alliance for the dietary and weight management supplement, SolaThin™. Sola­Thin is a pure potato protein extract consisting of several low-molecular weight proteins, including protease inhibitor PI-2. PI-2 enables the release of cholecystokinin (CKK), a naturally occurring peptide clinically shown to produce a feeling of gastric fullness, thereby helping reduce food consumption. SolaThin contains no added compounds and features more than 90% protein, PI-2 included, to promote optimized satiety and healthful, effective weight control, says the company.
