LuraLean is a proprietary concentrated soluble fibre ingredient from the root of the plant Amorphophallus rivieri. Soluble fibre is fibre that has a high water holding capacity and forms a viscous or thickened gel when added to water.
Scientists believe that the capacity for LuraLean to absorb and hold water is the mechanism behind how the concentrated fibre supports weight reduction, healthy cholesterol levels and feelings of fullness. LuraLean interacts with liquid in the stomach and mixes with the meal, increasing the thickness and overall bulk in the stomach. The resultant gel promotes a feeling of satiety while travelling through the gastrointestinal tract and a feeling of fullness at meal times. After eating there is a prolonged feeling of fullness and reduced sensations of hunger.
The viscous gel that the fibre forms in the stomach also delays gastrointestinal travel. There is some research that shows there is a decreased re-absorption of bile acids and cholesterol. In addition, the highly viscous fibre present in the digestive tract may reduce contact between the food and the gut wall leading to reduced absorption of fats.
Clinical evidence supports the use of Blackmores Weight-LessT together with a calorie controlled diet and exercise program for healthy and moderate weight loss. This product is not designed to be used in isolation.
