    Abstract

    Indian marine scientists have developed a "natural remedy" from seaweeds for treating obesity and dyslipidemia, a Government-controlled marine research institute said today. The product--CadalminTM Antihypercholesterolemic extract (CadalminTM ACe)-- is the only one "made by 100 per cent natural marine bioactive ingredients from seaweeds as a natural remedy of obesity and dyslipidemia," according to Scientists at the Kochi headquartered Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. The product will be released by Governor P Sathasivam during the inaugural function of the Platinum Jubilee celebration of CMFRI on Saturday here, the institute said in a release. CMFRI scientists prepared the extract from seaweeds which are commonly available in Indian coastal waters and are natural bounty of the sea and are known for their extraordinary medicinal properties, it said. Dr Kajal Chakraborty, Senior Scientist in Marine Biotechnology Division of CMFRI, who developed the product, said bioactive pharmacophore leads from seaweeds were used to prepare the nutraceutical product.
