Formula for Healthy Cholesterol and Glucose Support1
With more than 25 years of metabolic health history, the Bios 7 is one of Unicity's premier metabolic health products from the Bios family of products. Formulated with ingredients that support a healthy microbiome and healthy gut bacteria, including a patented fiber matrix formulated to help protect from the dangers of the modern diet. The formula contains a proprietary polyphenols blend including yeast, apple, pomegranate and red grape extracts. Each serving contains 4g of fiber. In addition each serving contains maltodextrin, citric acid, orange juice powder, sweeteners, xanthan gum, and orange flavor.
BENEFITS AND RESEARCH
It's estimated that Americans consume 10-12 g of total fiber per day, less than half the amount of the recommended daily intake. Epidemiological and clinical studies have correlated high daily fiber intake with an improvement in overall health.
Bios 7 is a nutritional supplement designed to increase fiber intake. Each serving of Bios 7 contains four grams of fiber. Fiber supplementation has been shown to decrease preprandial and postprandial glucose levels, lower LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B levels, increase satiety, and facilitate weight loss.
The Bios 7 product family facilitates weight loss through five distinct mechanisms. First, the soluble fiber matrix promotes an increase in satiety. Second, they improve cholesterol levels. Reduction in LDL content removes a potent inhibitor of lipolysis. Third, these products improve blood glucose levels. Appropriate serum glucose levels help maintain many metabolic processes in the body. Reducing insulin levels permits fatty acid oxidation to occur. Fourth, they restore appropriate leptin signaling. Fifth, the Bios 7 family reduces triglyceride levels allowing for leptin to cross the blood-brain barrier.1
Dissolve the contents of one packet into 8 to 10 fl. oz. of water and mix vigorously. Drink immediately. For best results, use 10-15 minutes before your two largest meals.
SAFETY AND WARNINGS
Bios 7 family is well tolerated. There may be mild gastrointestinal discomfort, such as increased flatulence or loose stools, during the first month of initial use due to the increased uptake of dietary fiber. This GI disturbance usually disappears within the first thirty days. If the GI discomfort persists, reduce the number of servings of Bios 7. If the GI discomfort further persists, stop taking the product and consult your physician. Taking this product without adequate liquid can result in complications.
Bios 7 family is packaged in single-serving foil packets.
