This month we are featuring as our “supplement of the month” a fat blocker as well as a carb blocker, respectively. Well, let’s face it. It’s challenging to eat perfectly 100% of the time. We know our patients are all in different places in their journey to improved health and good quality nutrition. It’s good to have a little help when trying to lose some weight, or simply to mitigate the damage after a weak moment, a meal served by a well-meaning host, during vacations or holidays or in business when a less than ideal restaurant or banquet meal can catch you off guard. We, of course, don’t advocate overindulging on whatever you like, whenever you like, and hoping a pill will keep you healthy and skinny. Lifestyle changes and healthy choices are accomplished with good planning and will always be paramount to good health and wellness. But we know that life gets in the way sometimes and that losing weight and keeping it off are a challenge for many. So we’re presenting 2 supplements that might help in some challenging situations:
Nuvexa™ contains FBCx®, a naturally occurring, patented dietary fiber. Through over a decade of research, FBCx® has demonstrated an impressive fat binding capability and each serving (2 tablets) binds up to 18 grams of dietary fat (equivalent to 162 calories). The FBCx® passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed and is eliminated without unpleasant side effects. Helpful to manage weight, up to 486 calories a day (162 calories x 3 meals) of fat from food can be blocked from being absorbed.
TheraSlim™ is a natural, non-stimulant supplement, clinically proven to reduce carbohydrate calories from the starchiest carbohydrates such as grains (corn, rice, barley, rye, oats, wheat) and potatoes. TheraSlim™ contains Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer®, a natural, non-stimulant adjunct from the white kidney bean, Phaseolus vulgaris L., that may reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches. Supported by a substantial and competent body of scientific evidence including 14 clinical investigations, two capsules of TheraSlim ™ at least twice a day when taken with starchy meals or snacks, may assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.
