PureLean® Fibre contains a blend of PreticX™ xylooligosaccharides, soluble fibres from glucomannan, guar gum, apple pectin and prune powder, and insoluble fibres from cellulose and flaxseed. Soluble fibre helps slow the rate of digestion, promoting digestive health and nutrient absorption. It also absorbs water and adds bulk in the digestive tract to support weight management as part of a healthy lifestyle that includes a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise.
Research has revealed that the high molecular weight and viscosity of glucomannan is particularly supportive of these effects. In an eight-week double-blind trial, glucomannan provided statistically significant support for weight management in combination with a healthy lifestyle. Fibre also promotes G.I. motility and regularity, supporting healthy bowel movements and softer stools by adding bulk. Studies with glucomannan indicate that this fibre promotes abdominal comfort, G.I. motility and bowel regularity, and is well-tolerated. Furthermore, xylooligosaccharides and soluble fibres are fermented in the large intestines by intestinal microflora, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are important energy sources for the colon and can promote healthy gastrointestinal motility. SCFAs also keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal conditions for beneficial bacteria to thrive. Clinical research has demonstrated that PreticX™ is well-tolerated and less likely to cause the common gastrointestinal complaints associated with other oligosaccharides, such as bloating or gas.
