Fiber acts as a bulking agent in the stomach and intestine, which means you feel fuller and may eat less.1-7 Soluble fiber attracts water and forms a gel-like substance as it passes through the digestive tract. This slows digestion and lowers the rate of nutrient absorption, helping to maintain glucose and cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.7-14
LuraLean® consists of propolmannan, a highly purified, natural dietary fiber patented in 33 countries. It comes from Amorphophallus japonica, a rare tuberous plant found only in the mountainous regions of northern Japan.
Propolmannan boasts the highest molecular weight of any water-soluble fiber in the natural world.40 Using cutting-edge technology, it has been reduced to a special particle size that maximizes density while remaining in desirable viscous form. A 500 mg capsule of propolmannan contains more fiber than the same milligram amount from other plants.41 Just as importantly, natural enzymes that would otherwise cause it to break down during digestion have been removed.42-47
This is what sets LuraLean® propolmannan apart. Because of its high molecular weight, particle size, durability, and viscous structure, LuraLean® passes intact through your entire digestive tract. Its unique “sponge-like” matrix then acts to impede excess calories from entering your bloodstream in three ways:
- Absorbs water and quickly expands in the stomach to make you feel full faster.
- Impedes the breakdown and assimilation of dietary fats by “soaking up” bile acids in the small intestine, shuttling them safely out of the body.48
- Slows the rapid emptying of food from your stomach into the small intestine, blunting the after-meal glucose spike that would normally result.
In other words, LuraLean® forms a stable, viscous barrier that slows down normal digestive processes intrinsic to body fat storage. Placebo-controlled studies confirm its ability to induce moderate weight loss by reducing the rate of carbohydrate absorption and consistently lowering after-meal elevations in blood glucose, triglyceride, and LDL levels.49,50
Take four 500 mg capsules of LuraLean® before the two heaviest meals of the day. This integral component of a science-based weight management program can help you turn back the clock on age-related metabolic changes.
This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.
