LeptiFiber® is a combination of two unique soluble fibers, one from a legume known as guar beans (guar gum) and the other from the heartwood of larch trees which are in the pine family (arabinogalactan). Guar gum and arabinogalactan are very soluble in water and have little taste, making them an excellent fiber supplement that requires no sweetener and is very easy to use.
These forms of fiber are known as viscous polysaccharides, important water-holding glyconutrients with unique properties. Guar gum is technically a glyconutrient of mannose with galactose side groups. Arabinogalactan is a glyconutrient of 6 parts galactose to 1 part arabinose, with small amounts of glucuronic acid.*
Many Americans lack adequate fiber in their diets which places considerable metabolic stress on digestion and the rate of proper absorption of calories and nutrients from food. Numerous studies demonstrate the importance of adequate soluble fiber in health, especially related to digestion, blood sugar metabolism, and weight management.*
When individuals begin to have metabolic problems with calories, it is often the case that there is an inefficient response to meals that are eaten, both in terms of digestion, satiety, and metabolic response. The key fat hormone leptin becomes disturbed, resulting in stressed metabolism, ease of weight gain, trouble getting weight off, and excess desire for food.*
LeptiFiber® is designed to help offset these metabolic stressors, as one important angle on the leptin and weight management issue. Adequate soluble fiber helps slow down the rate that food is absorbed, providing a better feeling of satiety on less food as well as promoting a more even or balanced blood sugar response to the meal (better glycemic control). These factors are fundamental to normal and healthy metabolism.*
Our partially hydrolyzed guar gumin LeptiFiber has been shown to reduce the amount of triglycerides in your blood following a meal. Because higher triglycerides reduce leptin entry to your brain, the net effect is that leptin gets into your brain better when triglycerides are lower. This reduces your desire for food while your metabolism and energy kick into gear. This mechanism is especially helpful for those trying to eat a lower calorie diet to assist weight management.*
Take 1 tablespoon of LeptiFiber one-half hour or one hour before your two largest meals of the day. This does not mean you can overeat, it simply means that you will be more inclined to feel full on a moderate amount of food and are likely to have an improved metabolic response.*
