Good to know
Clean & Lean contains natural fibre in the form of psyllium husk & sugar beet fibre. These help support the digestive tract and ensure that the waste products and toxins are removed from the body.
It also contains Prebiotics & Probiotics in the from of Inulin and Lactobacillus Acidophilus & Bifidobactrium Bifidum. These all act to help to repopulate the gut with good bacteria. Many things in Western lifestyles can deplete the good gut bacteria in the gut. These include processed foods, high sugar diets, antibiotics, stress, alcohol & numerous medicines.
Clinical studies have shown that poor gut health makes it harder to lose weight. The bacteria in our gut are essentially wired into our immune system, our metabolism, our ability to lose weight and even into our brain. In short good gut bacteria and a healthy microbe are needed for ‘fat fighting’.
Each serving of Clean & Lean also contains 1g Glucomannan which is clinically proven to help support weight loss. Glucomannan is a dietary fibre derived from Konjac Root. It works by absorbing water and reducing the absorption of carbohydrates and fats. It also helps to support the friendly bacteria in the gut, improving the overall gut microbiome. Numerous Randomised Controlled Trials have been done showing the benefits of Glucomannan for weight loss at a dose of 2-3g per day. (1) (2)
