What is Prebiotic Fiber?

Prebiotics are fibrous, nondigestible carbohydrates that, once consumed, make their way to the colon where they fuel the growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria.

Feeding probiotic bacteria in the gut has been shown to promote the immune system, lower the risk of colorectal cancer - and even increase weight loss.

How does Prebiotic Fiber Help Weight Loss?

The idea that gut bacteria can also play a role in weight control is being increasingly proven by research. 8,569 normal weight adults were followed for nine years to evaluate the link between prebiotic consumption and the risk of becoming overweight.

People with the highest intake of prebiotics were significantly less likely to become overweight over time than those who consumed the least, even after adjusting for diet and lifestyle factors.

 

“THERE’S A BIG BODY OF LITERATURE THAT SUGGESTS POSITIVE

METABOLIC ACTIVITY OF GUT BACTERIA RELEASES

HUNGER-SUPPRESSING HORMONES”

How much more weight can you lose with Prebiotic Fiber?

A research team from Calgary tested prebiotics in overweight or obese adults. Each received 21 grams of prebiotic fiber every day for 12 weeks.

Prebiotic Fiber Burns 228% More Fat

They found prebiotics increased weight loss by 228% over the placebo group. What’s even more exciting is that the overweight adults involved only lost fat. No muscle mass or bone mass was lost. That means prebiotic fiber was specifically targeting fat cells — an even more exciting benefit of prebiotics’ ability to lose weight.

How Much Prebiotic Fiber is in Nutracelle?

Nutracelle has 10 grams of prebiotic fiber from the Chicory Root in every serving. That's why it's so filling and can help improve your health.
