What It Is: About FBCx®
FBCx is a soluble dietary fiber that can bind with up to 9 times its own weight in dietary fat and prevent its absorption. Taken with fat-containing meals or snacks, FBCx can decrease daily caloric absorption by up to 500 calories a day, which can add up to 1.5 pounds a week, or 4-6 pounds a month.
FBCx is a naturally sourced fiber, α-cyclodextrin that consists of 6 glucose molecules. The uniquely shaped structure allows it to form a stable, non-digestible complex with dietary fat. Usually, dietary fiber binds at a 1:1 ratio. But FBCx binds up to a 1:9 ratio and has no known harmful side effects when taken as recommended (even though it eliminates 9 times its own weight in dietary fat). The patented FBCx fiber, which is naturally derived from corn, binds to dietary fat in the digestive tract and prevents its absorption. The FBCx/fat complex is eliminated without undesirable side effects.
FBCx should be taken as a supplement with meals or snacks containing dietary fats or as an ingredient in food. Take 6 grams of FBCx a day (typically 2 grams with three meals each day) and up to 500 fewer calories may be absorbed. Typically, we consume around 100 grams of fat a day. Ideally, you need to spread this fat consumption out over three balanced and nutritious meals.
There is no program or special diet involved with taking FBCx. You simply eat a reasonable, balanced and nutritious fat-containing diet. If you do not use FBCx as a license to overeat, it can help you to achieve your weight management goals.
