The Promised Land of Weight Loss
However there is new type of supplement causing great excitement in the slimming circles up and down the country at the moment and it belongs to the family known as ‘fat binders’
Working to help you manage your weight loss,natural fibres extracted from Optuntia Ficus Indica Cactus (prickly pear ) work together to extract the fat from your body. Prickly pear is well known to be rich in flavonoids Studies have shown that flavonoids, found in great abundance in the prickly pear, can protect the immune system and prevent oxidative stress by acting as a fighter against free radicals. Cells and organs are protected by this antioxidant action. The composition of this supplement forms a complex of two fibres, one a non-soluble fibre, the other a soluble fibre, that enable you to experience improved well-being and long term weight loss.
The soluble fibres within these supplements are incredibly viscous. Designed to bind with bile acids, when these two complexes meet they form a very viscous solution which gradually slows down digestion within the body, whilst at the same time slows down the absorption of glucose into your blood stream. When this viscous solution reaches your stomach, your stomach finds this solution a lot harder to digest resulting in it staying in your stomach beyond the normal length an ordinary meal would stay. And the result? You feel fuller for much longer.
The non soluble fibres are supposed come into contact with dietary fats and they work by binding with them immediately to form a fluid gel. By doing this, it makes the fats complex too large to be absorbed in your body, and as a result is naturally passed out of your body. These natural fat binding properties of the supplements should enable you to manage your weight loss, whilst still allowing you to eat the foods you love (on occasion).
The makers of this supplement claim that it is 100% organic and has been subjected to extensive clinical trials. That the product is medically endorsed and binds your dietary fat intake to reduce it by 28%:
– curbs your appetite whilst lowering your food cravings
– boosts your energy levels
– improves joint mobility and flexibility
– lowers blood cholesterol
– appeases aches and pains
The resulting clinical trials have also confirmed that taking extracts of the Optuntia Ficus India Cactus (prickly pear) can greatly reduce the symptoms of excessive alcohol consumption (dry mouth, headache, sickness and fatigue). Several independent trails have confirmed that hangover sufferers who take the substance are far more likely to recover quicker than those who don’t. The best hangover cure is obviously abstinence but for those who cannot resist drinking to excess there is always the prickly pear – you may also shed a few pounds into the bargain.
