Chicory Root fiber can trigger weight loss.
A Journal of Nutrition (full study) has found that most of the inulin and oligofructose commercially available on the industrial food ingredient market today is extracted from chicory roots that are best known for its use as a coffee substitute.
The research published in British Journal of Nutrition has found that Chicory Root fiber can trigger weight loss. Researchers at the University of Maastricht have found that oligofructose (a carbohydrate-based dietary fiber extracted from chicory roots) can reduce the energy intake of healthy volunteers by 10 per cent while maintaining normal levels of satiety and hunger. Oligofructose and inulin are not digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract; therefore, they have a reduced caloric value. Both of these were termed "prebiotics" and aid in the regulation of ghrelin, which is an amino acid primarily associated with feelings of hunger and food-seeking behavior. By reducing the amount of the ghrelin hormone, chicory can reduce the chances of overeating and promote satiety, or the feeling of fullness.." http://www.nutraingredients.com/Research/Chicory-root-fibre-could-trigger-weight-loss-finds-new-research
Green Coffee Bean Extract:
Chlorogenic acid is the active compound in green coffee beans that encourages weight loss. Studies show that chlorogenic acid positively affects how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism. With stable blood sugar, this results in increased energy, mental clarity, balanced hormone function, detoxification improvement and weight loss. Various studies have suggested that chlorogenic acid slows absorption of fat from food intake and also activates metabolism of extra fat.
Most weight loss suggestions encourage eliminating the artificial sweeteners and using the natural ones to jump start the weight loss. Barley malt is a natural sweetener, it is is made from cereal grains that have many nutritional benefits. Barley malt is a great substitute for artificial sweeteners. This healthier alternative contains complex carbohydrates and protein along with maltose and glucose. Barley malt syrup is a thick, sticky, brown sweetener and is about half as sweet as refined white sugar. Many consumers prefer this natural sweetener because it moves through the digestive system slower than other refined sugars. We offer both Barley liquid and Barley malt in the form of powder.
