We have all heard the importance of getting enough fiber in our diet. We also know that it sometimes feels like an impossible task. LuraLean, a new fiber supplement may be the answer. LuraLean is said to be a zero-calorie fiber that can replace fats and extra calories in food. AHD, the manufacturer of LuraLean promises that it can do this without affecting the flavor of the food. They also claim that LuraLean will not break down as it passes through the body. The benefits don’t stop there, it is also promised that LuraLean will bind to excess oils and cholesterols and flush them out of your system. Because of this it has been said to be an excellent cholesterol reducer.
LuraLean works by interacting with the liquid in the stomach. This causes a reaction that allows the fiber to expand up to 200 times its original size. This will create a feeling of fullness and satisfaction at a much faster rate.
LuraLean was named a Nutraward 2009 finalist. This is a prestigious honor that recognizes the scientific research and studies that backs up the LuraLean claims.
The Ingredient LuraLean is derived from a fiber grown in Japan. This fiber is also known as glucomannan, which is a very common ingredient in many diet supplements. LuraLean differs from glucomannan because of its intense purification process. After it is harvested all of its imperfections and impurities are removed. It is said that because of this it is far superior to regular glucomannan because the process ensures that it will not breakdown when digested. It also is viable in your system for up to 24 hours while glucomannan is only vicious for about 3 hours.
Ingredient: LuraLean Side Effects
AHD claims that over 60 clinical trials have proven LuraLean to be a completely safe ingredient for all age groups with no reported adverse side effects.
One con to LuraLean is that as it does bind to fats it doesn’t distinguish bat fats and good fats. It will also flush omega-3 fatty acids out of your system which are essential to nutritious living.
Does LuraLean Work Well Enough to Buy?
Unfortunately, LuraLean does not seem to be very accessible to the everyday consumer. However, if you were able to purchase the ingredient it does seem like an effective way to replace fats and extra calories with fiber in your diet. It also seems like an effectual appetite suppressant as it expands to 200 times its original size. I do think it would be a positive start to eating healthier, more fiber-rich foods.
