The Safe Solution For Effective Weight Loss.

Sigrid Therapeutics® is pioneering a user-friendly product made of precisely engineered particles with extraordinary absorptive capacity. It interacts with the gut to lower energy intake, inducing weight loss in a safe and effective way.  

 

Empower yourself to commit to a healthier lifestyle. 

 

The Sigrid Solution

Whereas current products on the market are riddled with side effects, Sigrid's solution is precisely engineered to induce weight loss without compromising safety. Smartly designed, our product contains thousands of biocompatible micro fat cleansers. The micro cleansers are precisely engineered from minerals, which are Generally Recognized as Safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Upon oral consumption, Sigrid’s particles work mechanically in the gut by lowering energy intake through several gentle mechanisms. Unlike anti-obesity drugs which are taken up and circulated in the bloodstream, Sigrid’s product is user-friendly with no systemic uptake. The micro cleansers stay and function locally in the gut, and are eventually removed by the body’s natural excretion cycle. 

Research & Development

Sigrid’s therapeutic solution is the result of groundbreaking scientific research and intellectual property developed at the obesity and diabetes laboratory of Professor Tore Bengtsson at Stockholm University. Professor Bengtsson has over 20 years of experience in metabolism, obesity and its related diseases. Since its discovery in 2012, the Sigrid team has worked collaboratively with renowned global research institutes, including Karolinska Institute, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Monash University in further developing and optimising our product. Combining expertise from different fields, including biochemistry, material sciences and clinical insights and practice, ensures continuous progress in our research and development.

Our
Story

The Sigrid Story began in 2008, when our researchers started exploring the promise of engineered materials in biomedical applications within the field of obesity and its related diseases. After years of dedicated research and materials development, a significant discovery was made: A precisely engineered particle that showed conclusive results in inducing weight and body fat loss. In reference to the Old Norse origin, Sigrid was founded in 2014, representing the “beautiful victory”, accomplished through the team's efforts. We remain determined to transform our discovery into a meaningful product. Sigrid stands for optimal safety and well-being, striving to empower you to commit to a healthier life.

Obesity

Obesity is a risk factor for many other fatal diseases

People who struggle with obesity or overweight issues have substantially higher risks of various health problems, according to collective research studies. Type II diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, endometrial and breast cancers, osteoarthritis and mental health issues are all found to have strong associations with obesity. Women with overweight issues also face problems with pregnancy and breastfeeding, increasing birth and health risks of their babies. Obesity is a chronic disease that must not be under-treated.

Side Effects of Existing Weight Loss Products

Most weight loss products available in the market are either ineffective or health hazardous, riddled with severe side effects. Any benefits you gain from these products come with high costs: 

•    Colorectal cancer
•    Headache, insomnia, depression
•    Fetal deformity
•    Diarrhea and constipation
•    High blood pressure and stroke
•    Liver injury
