Skinny Fiber is a dietary supplement created for the purpose of helping dieters control cravings, eat less, fell full, flush toxins and helps you look and feel great. It is an over-the-counter weight management product manufactured by Skinny Body Care.
More specifically, Skinny Fiber is a fiber supplement that claims to help reduce a person’s appetite by making them feel full. As a result, from feeling full, this lowers hunger and appetite. In addition to these claims, it also supposedly enhances your metabolism and suppresses fat formation.
The primary way that Skinny Fiber reportedly works to help you feel full, is by expanding in your stomach. In theory, this effect is supposed to help you eat less.
Although the formula contains two different proprietary blends, each of which contains a handful of ingredients, the three main active ingredients the manufacturer promotes is Glucomanan, Caralluma Fimbriata and Cha du Bugre.
Each of these ingredients are well known in the weight loss industry. Glucomanan is a water soluble dietary fiber designed to help suppress appetite by expanding in your stomach from absorbing water. Caralluma Fibriata is believed to be a natural appetite suppressant while also enhancing stamina. Cha du Bugre is believed to function as an anti-inflammatory, an appetite suppressant, and support healthy metabolism.
In actual fact, none of these ingredients have ever been proven by science to be effective for weight loss. In some cases, such as in the case of Cha du Bugre, researchers are not even entirely sure how it works on the body or how it is effective.
The suggested use for this dietary supplement is to take 2 capsules with a minimum of 8 ounces of water or other fluid, 30 minutes prior to meals. When using this product, it is highly recommended that you drink plenty of water to ensure the fiber has enough time to expand. Taking Skinny Fiber without sufficient liquid intake may cause choking.
Other potential side effects you might encounter when taking Skinny Fiber include digestive upset.
There is no guarantee that taking Skinny Fiber will help you with your weight management efforts. Skinny Fiber has not been studied and its ingredients require further research.
If you are looking for a product that will help you control your appetite, it is a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider about your desires and goals. He or she can help you find a suitable solution or product.
