THIS UNIQUE FIT FORMULA HAS TRIPLE ACTION :
BURNS FAT - The Thermogenic ( fat-burning ) action comes from the protein which supports our muscle mass and hence our metabolism . The protein also supports satiety by slowing the rise in blood sugar and this effect is powered by a full dose of Svetol ® ( Green Coffee Bean extract ) a powerful antioxidant which has been clinically studied to support weight loss and reduce appetite . BLOOD GLUCOSE SUPPORT – Allulose unlike other natural sugars , has minimal impact on raising blood sugar . Svetol ® helps to slow the rise in blood sugar after meals helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and reduce appetite . HEART HEALTH - Clinically studied dose of Oat beta-glucans toreduce risk of heart disease and help to regulate blood sugar . †*
NEW DR . APPROVED NATURAL SWEETENER WHAT IS ALLULOSE ?
Allulose is a naturally occurring sugar found in fruits such as figs and raisins . Allulose is unique from other sugars as it is absorbed but not digested , leading to an almost nil contribution to calories . Although it tastes as sweet as sugar , it is a fraction of the calories ( 1 / 10 the calories of sugar ) and does not raise blood sugar or insulin levels . This makes allulose a great sugar alternative to those who are following a low-carb , keto , paleo , or Mediterranean diet .
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF ALLULOSE ?
Dr . Perlmutter is a big fan of allulose , pointing out that for those looking to reduce their intake of sugar and limit the contribution of carbohydrate to their overall caloric intake , allulose is a great option for sweet treats . According to Dr . Perlmutter : Human clinical trials are confirming the health benefits of allulose :
✔ Allulose has been shown to reduce postprandial ( after meals ) blood glucose in individuals with type 2 diabetes ( Noronha et al ., 2018 ).
✔ Allulose consumption leads to lower body fat percentage and body fat mass in humans ( Han et al ., 2018 ).
✔ Allulose has also been shown to regulate blood sugar and increase fat oxidation ( fat- burning ) in healthy men and women ( Kimura et al ., 2017 ).
