A Carb-Blocking Soluble Fiber

Posted on Jan 17, 2014

4 people found the following review helpful

This product is made from a plant called JU LUO in Chinese. In Taiwan and Japan, they use the fiber from this plant to make carb-free noodles and gummy-bear like snacks (without the sugar). It works fairly well, though it may cause some GI problems. Like any fiber supplements, start slowly. It is thought that the active ingredient not only fills you up with soluble fiber, it also encapsulates carbs and prevents their digestion. I definitely save them for my biggest meal of the day, for who knows what other nutrients it might also encapsulate. I carry them with me in case I find myself at a buffet or some other place or event that I might pig out or otherwise break my low-carb diet. I have a problem with impulse control, so the idea of wrapping up the carbs and preventing their digestion is appealing to me. Additional information. For filling up faster, some oil (I use flax, fish, and black seed supplements) or nuts 30 minutes before your meal is a good idea. You may fill full faster, because the oil gets the stomach-mind biofeedback loop working real time. For balance, you may also want use these PGX products(soluble fiber) with a couple of psyllium husk (insoluble fiber) caps 5 minutes before your meal. Both are good for you in different ways. For additional sugar control, you might want to try an Alpha Lipoic Acid (I use Jarrow Fomulas Alpha Lipoic Sustain). I'm not diabetic, but I don't like the post-carb crashes. I would give this product 3.5 stars for myself because I don't find them helpful with impulse control and sugar craving personally. As an emotional eater, they do NOT override these emotion-based cravings. I think that that aspect of the product is overrated. However,I do use them or similar products (white bean powder) often, because living in modern society where processing a rampant and fiber hard to find, I think a little more fiber here and there is important.

I absolutely love this butter. The taste is really satisfying. It is expensive (especially when you could eat two jars a week), but it is worth it. Good for singles. A family with kids would go broke. Nevertheless, I have not tasted anything better. For sure, it's healthy, too.

Best Tasting Formula Lasting Fullness

Posted on Mar 24, 2012

I just finished my first can of this, and I loved it. They have another version for older men, which I ordered (with little less sweetener). I will order this one again, too. It tastes good (with strong flavor of vanilla). The energy it produced was long-lasting and even. Carried me through to my next meal. I know that I can cut a lot of my other supplements (said to up metabolism and reduce calories), because with this multi-care meal I don't need them anymore.

No big change, and now beware

Posted on Jul 23, 2013

I have used this product religiously for more than 3 years, as it was highly recommended and the ingredients were of high quality. However, I have not noticed that it did much for me. Since the ingredients were okay, I took it anyway, as it would hurt, I figured. Now NEW CHAPTER has been bought by P&G, so I doubt that the ingredients will stay the same, as they will undoubtedly start looking to make the supplement more "profitable" by replacing the present ingredients with cheaper substitutes. I suggest keeping track of changes in the ingredients of this rather expensive supplement. There is a good chance that I will discontinue using it.

No way

Posted on Sep 14, 2014

Each "serving" contains a huge pack of huge tablets and capsules. I am a veteran pill swallower, but this pack of monsters is hard to consume. I was hoping to cut out my prescription meds for sleep problems. The packs have not improved my sleep at all. The pre-bed swallowing ordeal in NOT the way I want to end my evening. It might help those with with no sleep disorders, but not me.
