Statistical methods / analysis
Baseline demographic and clinical information will be summarized using standard descriptive statistics including means, medians, standard deviations, ranges, frequencies and percentages. Changes in outcomes will be analysed using paired t-tests with a two-tailed p-value <0.05 considered statistically significant. The primary analyses will be undertaken on all completing participants but analyses will also explore weight changes in those participants who exit the study early. Clinical trials demonstrating weight loss by a similar mechanism as is hypothesised for the NZ Extracts product have seen significant changes with 20-60 participants over an 8 week period. For this trial it is intended to recruit 100 participants with the aim that a least 60 will complete the trial. A sample size of 60 will enable an effect size for weight change of >0.4 to be detected as statistically significant (two-sided a=0.05) with greater than 80% power.

Summary
Brief summary
The primary purpose of this trial is to measure the acceptability of, and compliance with regular consumption of the health supplement Satisfax and its effect on body weight in overweight volunteers over a period of 8 weeks. We hypothesize that the regular consumption of Satisfax will lead to a loss of weight in overweight volunteers.
