Obesity is on the rise in the modern world, and it is on its way to becoming a pandemic. Obesity is the root cause of all metabolic diseases. It places a financial burden on the patient and has a negative impact on their quality of life and health in the community.Many people are always looking for new ways to lose weight and get rid of excess body fat. While there are a lot of fad diets and workout programs out there, not all are backed by science. On the other hand, prebiotic fiber is a type of dietary fiber that has been shown to help promote weight loss.

 

What is Prebiotic Fiber?

Prebiotic fiber is a type of dietary fiber that promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This can help to improve gut health and reduce body fat. Our fiber product is called JustFiber.

 

What are the Benefits of Prebiotic Fiber?

Prebiotics are beneficial to you in various aspects. They boost your mood, immunity, and ability to digest food and sleep well.

Moreover, prebiotics can help to reduce body fat. In one study, overweight and obese participants who consumed a prebiotic fiber supplement lost more body fat than those who didn’t take the supplement.

Probiotics can also alleviate the symptoms of a metabolic syndrome characterized by hyperlipidemia, obesity, insulin resistance, and hypertension.

If you want to lose body fat, adding a prebiotic fiber supplement to your diet may be worth trying. Consult your healthcare provider first to ensure it’s safe for you.

 

How does Prebiotic Fiber help you Reduce body fat?

Prebiotic fibers help you feel full more quickly. The more fiber you consume, the less space you’ll have for higher-calorie foods. Interestingly, since prebiotic fiber is classified as a carbohydrate, the dietary value attributed to each gram is 4. As it can’t be absorbed, it likely only contains around 2.5 kcal (energy) per gram. (JustFiber has only 2,2 kcal/g) Thus probiotics help reduce the number of calories we absorb from our food.

Prebiotics has a significant, passive function in the small intestine, but they begin to exert their full beneficial effects in the large intestine. This is where the fermentation process starts, forming shorter chain fatty acids (SCFA). To lose weight, these substances aid in:

  • Keeping you from overeating by convincing your brain that you’re full
  • Aiding the growth and proliferation of beneficial gut bacteria to prevent or treat dysbiosis. (Keep in mind the several mechanisms by which dysbiosis promotes obesity.)

According to a recent study, prebiotic fiber can help increase levels of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 promotes weight loss by increasing feelings of fullness and reducing food intake.

Thus, prebiotic fiber alone, whether from food or supplements, aids in achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight. Additionally, it complements both probiotics and your body’s native gut flora.

 

Do you want to lose Weight? Try our JustFiber, Natural and Prebiotic!

When it comes to weight loss, there are many different strategies that people can try. Some people focus on cutting calories, while others try to exercise more. There is also another approach that you may not have considered – prebiotic fiber.

A healthy regular diet is not enough to achieve the desired result in weight loss. Fiber is excellent in many aspects, and many fiber products are out there (each with its own side effects).

With JustFiber, all the great benefits come without any side effects. Our product is 100% natural, safe and effective.

JustFiber has been scientifically formulated to provide you with unparalleled benefits. This high-quality fiber can help reduce energy intake, aid digestion, and weight loss, sleep well, and boost your energy.

Inulin also aids in weight loss, but what makes JustFiber different from inulin? Inulin is somewhat popular, but the tolerance is about 10 g/day, while our JustFiber has a tolerance level of 45 g/day. Made with natural ingredients, JustFiber has a broader tolerance than other products on the market.
