Have you ever wondered how you could boost your immune system, lower the risk of colorectal cancer and increase your weight loss? How about increasing your weight loss without losing muscle or bone mass?

 

Do you know how much fiber your body needs on a daily basis? And how much do you know about prebiotic fiber and its role in your body?

 

The daily minimum recommendation for fiber is 25 grams, and the amount of fiber needed for weight loss is 40-50 grams.

 

Do you know how much fiber the average person consumes daily? Only 14 grams!

 

So, that brings us to the question: why do we need so much fiber?

 

We know better than anyone how confusing and detailed some explanations can be in regards to ANYTHING health related. But we’re going to try and explain the process and benefits of prebiotic fiber as simply as we can to help you better understand why your body NEEDS it!

 

You should know what prebiotics are:

 

Prebiotics are fibrous, nondigestible carbohydrates that help your body produce the healthy probiotics you need.

 

You should know that you consume them and they make their way down to your colon.

 

You probably want to know what these nondigestible carbohydrates are doing in your colon.

 

Well, they are FUELING the growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria.

 

Feeding probiotic bacteria has been shown to promote:

  • The immune system
  • Lower the risk of colorectal cancer
  • Increase weight loss

 

One study followed 8,569 normal weight adults over the course of nine years to track and evaluate the link between prebiotic consumption and the risk of becoming overweight.

 

The study concluded that those with the highest intake of prebiotics were significantly less likely to become overweight than those who consumed the least intake of prebiotics.

 

Another research team from Calgary tested prebiotics in overweight and obese adults. Each participant consumed 21 grams of prebiotic fiber EVERY DAY for 12 weeks.

 

This study concluded that the prebiotics INCREASED weight loss by 228% over the placebo group.

 

The overweight adults involved in the study ONLY lost fat. No muscle mass or bone mass was lost.

 

What does that mean?

 

That means that the prebiotic fiber was SPECIFICALLY targeting fat cells!

 

We’re sure you can’t wait to raid your kitchen, and ensure that you get your daily recommendation of fiber, or more, for weight loss.

 

However, you should know that most items do NOT contain that much fiber. For example:

One slice of whole wheat bread = 1.9g

2 cups of broccoli = 2.4g

1 medium banana = 2.6g

1 large apple = 4.5g

 

So, what other options do you have?

 

Our Nutralean products are free of sugars, chemical additives and made from the highest quality whey protein, probiotic fiber from the chicory root, and healthy fats from flax seed.

 

Nutracelle is even 100% nut-free and gluten-free!

 

One Nutralean shake has 10g of fiber. You can add one scoop (10g of fiber) of unflavoured Nutralean into your scrambled eggs, tuna salad, soups, casseroles, and at the end of the day you can cheat with a protein treat!

 

In addition, Nutralean reduces cravings by 60%, increases fullness up to 4x over other protein supplements, and increases fat burning by 207%.

 

You’ll reach the amount of fiber you need on a daily basis in no time, with no fuss at all.
