Litramine™’s insoluble and soluble fibres, their optimised particle size and ratio contribute to two main functional properties of Litramine™.
The fat binding mechanism of Litramine™ is contributed by the presence of insoluble and soluble fibres via a 2-step mechanism:
Due to reduced digestion and absorption of fats from food, lesser calories are available from dietary fats. By appropriate use of Litramine™, adjusted to the content of dietary fat anticipated, weight loss is achieved. When used in combination with a suitable diet and exercise plan, a negative calorie input-expenditure balance can be created for more effective weight loss.
The insoluble fibres provide a bulking effect while the soluble fibres build up the viscosity in the gastrointestinal tract. Together, these actions impact gastric distension and gastric emptying that result in a feeling of satiety and fullness. In addition, consuming fibres help to balance the blood sugar levels, thereby helping to manage hunger and food cravings.
