Guar gum is a soluble dietary fibre from the guar bean and it acts as a prebiotic or energy source for beneficial intestinal bacteria. It aids in lowering blood glucose level and improving insulin sensitivity, a very important aspect of weight management.
It also helps lower cholesterol levels, important for cardiovascular (heart) health. Guar gum can also reduce the risk of sudden blood pressure drop that can take place within a couple of hours of consuming a meal.
Green Tea Extract – well known functional antioxidant ingredient for cellular protection and stimulation of fat burning.
Aquamin – Lithothamnion Calcifed Seaweed – a natural marine mineral complex derived 100% from seaweed in Iceland, with multiple health benefits.
Aquamin contains 74 trace minerals including:

VitaCholine – an essential vitamin that supports body, brain, lifestyle and lifespan.
Studies now show that 90% of us don’t get enough choline in our diets. Inadequate choline intake is a key issue particularly for those overworked and over stressed –
and these days that means pretty much everyone.
As we age further we add the frustrations of memory lapses and seemingly reduced memory capacity. Are those frustrations inevitable? Maybe, but maybe not. Cause and effect studies are ongoing and there are no definitive answers, but depending on the individual, insufficient dietary choline may play a part.
