    BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

    It's estimated that Americans consume 10-12 g of total fiber per day, less than half the amount of the recommended daily intake. Epidemiological and clinical studies have correlated high daily fiber intake with an improvement in overall health.

    Bios 7 is a nutritional supplement designed to increase fiber intake. Each serving of Bios 7 contains four grams of fiber. Fiber supplementation has been shown to decrease preprandial and postprandial glucose levels, lower LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B levels, increase satiety, and facilitate weight loss.

    The Bios 7 product family facilitates weight loss through five distinct mechanisms. First, the soluble fiber matrix promotes an increase in satiety. Second, they improve cholesterol levels. Reduction in LDL content removes a potent inhibitor of lipolysis. Third, these products improve blood glucose levels. Appropriate serum glucose levels help maintain many metabolic processes in the body. Reducing insulin levels permits fatty acid oxidation to occur. Fourth, they restore appropriate leptin signaling. Fifth, the Bios 7 family reduces triglyceride levels allowing for leptin to cross the blood-brain barrier.1

There may be mild gastrointestinal discomfort, such as increased flatulence or loose stools, during the first month of initial use due to the increased uptake of dietary fiber.
