The fiber in Coconut flour, Organic Digestive Resistant Prebiotic Tapioca Fiber, Organic Flax Meal, and Organic Psyllium enhances the release of fullness hormones, stretches the stomach, and slows the emptying rate, which reduces feelings of hunger [1, 2]. In addition, fiber ferments in the bowel and produces short-chain fatty acids that also contribute to feelings of fullness .
Adding more protein to the diet helps increase feelings of fullness, leads to the consumption of less food during the next meal, and helps the body burn fat; this supports improved weight control and weight maintenance [4, 5].
Chai contains ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves that improve digestive health and have antibacterial properties which target digestive issues [6-8]. Chai is also a good source of protein that helps increase feelings of fullness and decreases hunger .
Prebiotics such as the Organic Digestive Resistant Prebiotic Tapioca Fiber provide nutrients that enhance the growth and activity of probiotics (healthy gut bacteria) .
Apple cider vinegar improves insulin sensitivity while a high carbohydrate meal is being consumed by lowering blood sugar levels and the body's response to insulin . It also increases satiety (feelings of fullness) and causes fewer calories to be consumed [12, 13].
