What is SesaGLOW™ ?



Controlled Labs Elements SesaGLOW™: Fat Elimination Formula

If you are looking for a cost-effective, stimulant free supplement to take your fat loss to the next level, SesaGLOW™ is the right choice for you.

180 Softgels (180 Servings)

Key Attributes:

- Stimulant Free Fatloss
- Mitochondrial Fatty Acid Oxidation
- Helps Increase Peroxisomal Beta Oxidation
- Effective When Cutting or Bulking
- Helps Maintain Healthy Lipid Profile
- Maintain Lean Mass During a Cutting/Fat Loss Phase
- Supports Optimal Liver and Kidney Health
- Help Decrease Fat Storage

SesaGLOW™ contains a naturally occurring sesame oil extract called Sesamin, which is found in the seeds of the Sesame plant (Sesamun indicum). The sesame plant has been used around the world for hundreds of years as a food ingredient and as a medicinal plant in traditional medicine systems. Research indicates that SesaGLOW™ will help improve fat metabolism, decrease fat storage, and help to maintain lean muscle mass.

PPAR-Alpha

PPAR-alpha regulates the expression of genes involved in fatty acid beta-oxidation and is a major regulator of energy homeostasis. SesaGLOW™ is a PPAR-alpha agonist, which means that (simply put) SesaGlow™ will help regulate and enhance your results during a fat loss / cutting phase.

Non-Stimulant Thermogenic

By regulating the natural endogenous production of prostoglandins, SesaGLOW™ becomes a viable option for either cutting or bulking, and this unique effect classifies it as a non-stimulant, but potent thermogenic. That's right... finally a fat loss product that is effective even when you aren't cutting. More research is needed to determine the precise mechanism(s) of action.

Nutrient Partitioning

Simply put, nutrient partitioning is used to describe the percentage of nutrients and calories that go to muscle as opposed to fat. Sesamin's unique effects on PPAR-alpha and prostoglandins classify it as a Nutrient Partitioning agent / compound.

Hormone Levels

Hormone levels can temporarily be compromised during a cutting phase, but SesaGlow™ may be used by the endocrine system to help maintain optimal hormone production.

Healthy Fat Loss

In addition to being all natural, research indicates that SesaGLOW™ may help support optimal liver and kidney health. For best results, SesaGLOW™ should be used in conjunction with a quality multivitamin that includes plenty of vitamin B6, carnitine, Controlled Labs’ Red Acid™ or Blue Up™.

Skin Health

Sesamin is a potent antibacterial / antioxidant extract that also helps regulate Vitamin E production. Anecdotal feedback suggests that it is a viable option to help prevent acne, and for general skin health. More research is needed in this area.

In conclusion, SesaGLOW™ is one of the safest fat loss and overall health products on the market that delivers results. It is also non-stimulating and thus can be taken at night or by those who have adverse effects to stimulants.

I guess they are shaving enough from bottling costs to pull it off, but you make a good point about lab tests because obviously that does matter.

Anyway, I'm glad to see a bulk priced sesamin on the market. I'm going to stack this with X factor in some fashion in the future.

thank you, we save on packaging and bottling costs by including two bottles worth of softgels into one. The lab that everyone has used up until now to test for sesamin, ibc, is undergoing a change over to become iso certified and has stopped testing for sesamin (they are not sure if it will be temporary or permanent), once they are back to testing this will be tested. Although there is only one American source that brings sesamin in from India so we are 99% sure every American company is buying from this very same source. (Every lab has a different procedure/standard when testing for sesamin % so we must all use the same lab to keep it apples to apples comparison, if one of the other companies uses a different lab to test theirs we will follow and use them as well) we are 100% positive the sesamin is of the exact same quality as all of the other products available.

Oh my god. This has bull**** written all over it. I hope consumers aren't ignorant enough to believe what was just written here. I suggest you get someone from within the company that actually understands testing to post about the testing issues. You obviously have no clue. I hope "broism" doesn't take over here. The mindless following of someone simply because they wrote a pretty paragraph.

Wait...I said for someone within the company that KNOWS about testing. I forgot, companies don't test ingredients in this industry.

This is complete and utter bull****. If your line of reasoning stands, then nobody could get any ingredient tested unless everyone had their stuff tested there. That is why they have TESTING STANDARDS. That way multiple labs can do the testing. Are you worried that if you send your sesamin out to a lab that does hplc that it will come back at around 5%? Are you to lazy to actually hunt a lab that can do the testing? Much like your other products you just simply knock everyone off. You can't even find your own lab, much less your own products.

I could supply sources for days on this item that would allow you to make a 240 cap for the price you'll sell your 180 cap for, to bad it won't have hardly any active in it. You aren't a supplement company. You simply get a generic supplier list and match up stuff that someone else already makes. You go to the low cost supplier and bam, you're in business.

Your ignorance was showed with this comment:
Although there is only one American source that brings sesamin in from India so we are 99% sure every American company is buying from this very same source.

You must have some idiots doing your sourcing. There is more than 1 source bringing this stuff in. Do you have any clue which supplier in india actually harvest this stuff? Didn't think so.

I am not going to sit here and argue with you because from your post history it seems that is what you come here to do, argue. in any case, all labs have slightly (or sometimes very) different testing procedures and there is no one single standard for sesamin testing. we will subject this sesamin product to the same testing as any other company does, otherwise it would not be a fair comparison. ibc wont even give out their exact method so I can have another lab match it, believe me I called around to many many labs.

edit: also, this sesamin is guaranteed by our supplier to be at least 50% sesamin lignans, if it isn’t I get a 100% refund, but it must be tested by ibc for this to occur, I assume this supplier is the supplier for our competition as well since they used IBC. this supplier has a relationship with ibc and developed the standard with them for testing purposes. any other standard purchased form a different company and used by a different lab will yield higher or lower results for all sesamin products.

also, none of the new sesamin products I have seen launched in the past few months (including reformulation shave a c of a, this is because of ibc not testing for it currently)

if you don’t like what I have to say then don’t buy the product.

:rolleyes: The knockoff comments are to be expected with SesaGLOW, so congrats on being #1 with the knock off comments.

As far as our other products, you couldn't be more wrong.

White BLOOD - First OEE on the market
Red ACID - First OEA on the market
GlycerGROW - First Powdered Glycerol + Electrolyte Volumizer on the market
Green BULGE - First Capsuled MCC on the market
Green MAGnitude - First Apple flavored creatine on the market (AFAIK)
Black HOLE - First Appetite Stimulant on the market

a casual glance would show that xtend is a bcaa product and wraath is an eaa/bcaa product. also avant labs came out with sesamin first. other than those errors, good post. :)

I just love how a company is willing to come out with an ingredient they know has questionable quality without testing it. They say they are GOING to test it, but what does that say about the current batch consumers are getting? So what happens if the material comes back bad? You going to refund all your customers? My guess is we would never know if it came out bad.

For once I wish a company would put the customer FIRST. That is why this industry drives me nuts. CL just wanted to make a quick profit and they have NO clue if what they have in that softgel is legit. Gotta love it.

lurker, last time I'll say this


After banning about five people for cluttering up the Red Acid FAQ today, we're implementing a new rule for the entire Supplements section.

In FAQ and Review threads about products, please keep the discussion on topic. DO NOT go in there and bash the product/company/etc. If you have questions about it, feel free to ask them.

Now, this rule applies for all companies (Muscletech, Scivation, AvantLabs, basically I'm saying I don't care who it is). If you break the rule, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, you will receive a minimum of a seven day ban from here on out.


****Please note- This does not mean that you can't bash or question companies or products. You've always been able to do that and obviously that's not changing since that's a main reason the Supplement section is here. But if you wish to do that, then start a new thread or post in another thread that's not an FAQ or review.


If you have any questions feel free to PM me. Thanks for your time.

I was just pointing out the fallacy in your statement that your competition do not test every batch. I was merely using Scivation as an example. I'm not in here to cause problems, so please do not get the wrong idea.

Yeah it's a subliminal message.It stands for Getting Large On White blood.It's a hidden marketing ploy to buy more CL products j/k guys :D

after all CL, Scivation was the originator of Sesamin/ecdysterone/BCAA/EAA products, or didn't you hear? :p

What's COA mean?

Certificate of Analysis here are the comments by Tank on the current COA situation:


The lab that everyone has used up until now to test for sesamin, ibc, is undergoing a change over to become iso certified and has stopped testing for sesamin (they are not sure if it will be temporary or permanent), once they are back to testing this will be tested. Although there is only one American source that brings sesamin in from India so we are 99% sure every American company is buying from this very same source. (Every lab has a different procedure/standard when testing for sesamin % so we must all use the same lab to keep it apples to apples comparison, if one of the other companies uses a different lab to test theirs we will follow and use them as well) we are 100% positive the sesamin is of the exact same quality as all of the other products available.


all labs have slightly (or sometimes very) different testing procedures and there is no one single standard for sesamin testing. we will subject this sesamin product to the same testing as any other company does, otherwise it would not be a fair comparison. ibc wont even give out their exact method so I can have another lab match it, believe me I called around to many many labs.

edit: also, this sesamin is guaranteed by our supplier to be at least 50% sesamin lignans, if it isn’t I get a 100% refund, but it must be tested by ibc for this to occur, I assume this supplier is the supplier for our competition as well since they used IBC. this supplier has a relationship with ibc and developed the standard with them for testing purposes. any other standard purchased form a different company and used by a different lab will yield higher or lower results for all sesamin products.

also, none of the new sesamin products I have seen launched in the past few months (including reformulation shave a c of a, this is because of ibc not testing for it currently)

if you don’t like what I have to say then don’t buy the product.

Is the sesamin in these capsules the same oil found in Sesame Oil, found in most supermarkets/delis/grocerys, for cooking?

Nope.. it's actually a sesame oil extract (specific lignan). Sesame seeds contain sesamin, episesamin, sesamolin etc....

Ah... darnit. Thanks for the reply.

Sesame Seeds, Sesame Oil, and Tahini are still beneficial... just not as cost effective as SesaGLOW. Sesamin content in sesame seeds is low and can vary, which is why the extract was pretty revolutionary.


sesamin 1.6 (Namiki 1995) to 11.3 mg/g of oil (Beroza and Kinman 1955), and sesamolin 0.1 to 8.6 mg/g of oil (Japanese germplasm database).

As you can see, with SesaGLOW we are getting 500mg/g of oil instead of 1 to 12mg/g of oil

Just a "unofficial" note / update:

Until I can officially confirm it and get it into the SesaGLOW FAQ, I'm personally recommending that (for best results) users DO NOT combine / stack NAC and SesaGLOW.

Very, very well.

The added appetite = added calories + nutrient partitioning... it doesn't get much better than that... and there is also potential synergy with GlycerGROW / GMS as well.

Simply put, there is a potential benefit of sesamin that hasn't been discussed much and NAC may interfere with it... more info to come...

Here is a preview / hint.... I will also be (unofficially) recommending that people NOT take NAC with Xfactor / GlycerGROW.

NAC is listed next to last in a 250mg blend, so that should be fine... :p

NAC in a multivitamin should be just fine. It's "standalone" or "gram doses" of NAC supplementation that we will potentially want to avoid (for "optimal" results) while using SesaGLOW.

More clarification on the way, working on finalizing the article.

I find it interesting that SesaGlow is part of the Controlled Labs 'Elements' line, and Sesamin is part of the SciVation line (as opposed to Primaforce). How times change I guess...

Anyways, looks like a solid product. Big thumbs up for bringing much needed competitive pricing to the sesame seed table :)

1. Plenty of controversy on this, but there's no magic number

2. I have experimented with up to 10 caps daily. Side effects include insomnia, muscle twitching / spasms, sweating like crazy, baby smooth skin, and insane fatloss from the oblique area.

3. Yes, I recommend taking it with a solid food meal

I take 2 a day just to keep off any excess fat build up accumilating and to help evenly disperse the BF i have.
It is also a great product to stop the skin from Drying out and keeping it in a good condition.

No it's not a great fat burning product but when stacked with one it does work very well with it.

I used the Blue-Up with Yohimbe and the SesaGlow a while ago and that was a good combo to keep muscle whilst burning fat and keeping toned too. :)
