Suppress Appetite By Supplementing With Acacia Fiber
Acacia fiber provides a feeling of fullness that helps you feel satiated. As an appetite suppressant, acacia fiber makes you feel full earlier and for longer. You are then less likely to continue eating, potentially lowering cholesterol levels and are more likely to lose weight .
Regulate Blood Sugar With Acacia Fiber
This fiber is an excellent blood sugar regulator and increases the steady flow of energy to your body and mind so that you can complete more cognitively demanding tasks. Improve focus and mental clarity by reducing sugar spikes and crashes. By slowing the metabolism of sugar into your bloodstream, your body can regulate energy use more effectively.
Acacia fiber is free of artificial sweeteners and gluten. The role of fiber in health has extended to include benefits on some risk factors for cardiovascular disease, immune function, weight management, and colonic health. Combining functional fiber with alpha lipoic acid further contributes to blood sugar regulation, and detoxification of fat loving chemicals in our body and increases fat burn.

ACACIA FIBER PROFESSIONAL RECOMMENDATION
Taking a daily supplement of acacia fiber is safe up to 45g per day. It’s nice to know that it is very safe in proportionally large quantities.
Using acacia fiber promotes digestive health benefits. Adding acacia fiber to shakes and smoothies can help you feel fuller for longer. Earlier satiety and feeling full can help to keep you from ingesting unnecessary snacks that won't contribute to a positive energy profile. Momental MIND blends well in shakes and smoothies providing more nutrients in addition to acacia fiber.
Supplementing With Acacia Fiber Increases Weight Loss
Sometimes the best things for us are those that keep us from wanting all the bad stuff. This little detail is likely responsible for some of the improvement in cholesterol and weight loss. Try to avoid the carb heavy foods that accompany most breakfast tables.
Besides providing more satiety to allow food avoidance behaviors, Acacia fiber helps to smooth the passage of food through our GI system and by promoting good gut bacteria it can actually help you lose weight. Adding a prebiotic to the equation is just a win win.
Mixing a complete shake in the morning can help curb your appetite while providing the nutrition you need for real lasting energy. Skipping meals isn’t for everyone though, and the debate on whether or not you should eat breakfast in the morning continues.
You may experience lower energy levels initially until your body adjusts to your new routine. Reducing caloric intake isn’t just about skipping breakfast either. If you eat a large breakfast and are likely sitting the rest of the day, you really don’t need to eat lunch.
If you’re feeling an afternoon crash try to plan ahead for some healthy fat snacks like avocados, almonds, coconut in any form, walnuts. These foods can provide a quick source of energy to keep you going until your next meal.
However if you eat a late lunch one day than you could skip dinner and recharge in the morning. It’s all about how you are using your meals for energy production and then subsequent use. More physical activity = a true need for more calories. If you haven’t done much all day, you should be eating less.
The whole notion of 3 strict meals a day is just absurd. Nobody fits this scheme physiologically, and it often leads to overeating because people have trained themselves to think, “well, now it’s dinner time.” Even though they may have eaten two hours ago because of a late lunch and really don’t need the calories.
A “complete” or “full profile” shake is one that contains all the benefits of nootropics and meal replacement nutrition with healthy fats from MCT oil powder and coconut oil powder, greens, and grass-fed beef collagen protein so that you can focus and get down to business right away.
It’s easier to get a lot done when you aren’t distracted by hunger and experiencing drops in energy levels. The more you regulate your intake and plan for physical activity the better you can optimize your health. This is why skipping meals but giving yourself the right nutrition in the meantime is so important.
Acacia Fiber Decreases Gut Inflammation
Fiber can alter gut bacteria in as little as two weeks. This is why it is important to dose and source appropriately. Whole food plant based fibers are beneficial for gut health, and help to lower gut inflammation.
People who have issues with blood sugar and weight restrictions may not be able to consume fruit or starch. Making plant based soluble fiber supplementation a beneficial option. Those with extremely high gut flora or gut dysbiosis benefit from fiber and prebiotic supplements.
SIDE EFFECTS OF ACACIA FIBER
Too much acacia can result in minor adverse effects including nausea, gas, bloating, and loose stools. Not enough is known about acacia consumption during pregnancy and nursing.
Acacia Fiber was shown to be safe up to 30g per day taken for 6 consecutive weeks. Other studies show prebiotic fiber exhibits a high gastrointestinal tolerability of 30-45g/day .
RECAP OF ACACIA FIBER
Acacia Fiber is Gluten Free
Think of acacia fiber as a gluten free blood sugar regulator. It’s a piece of the puzzle that can help you feel fuller for longer which keeps the hunger pang distractions to a minimum allowing you to do your best and most creative work.
Earlier Satiety With Acacia Fiber
Feel satiated (full) sooner and avoid unnecessary carb and sugar loaded breakfast foods that so many fall victim to. The temptation is understandable when they are so easy to grab on the go.
So why not give your body the support it needs to not only stave off hunger for sugary food, but sustain a life that is no longer even tempted.
Lower Cholesterol By Supplementing With Acacia Fiber
When we don’t regulate our bodies with good nutrition and vehicles that deliver and further enhance those nutritional efforts then we really are destined to fail.
Keep in mind that acacia fiber helps to regulate cholesterol levels and can also lower cholesterol. If you're finding it too difficult to avoid processed carbs and sugar loaded croissants, donuts, or breads, supplementing acacia fiber in your diet improves digestion.
Instead it has become incredibly easy not to reach for starchy, sugary breakfast foods because my body and mind no longer crave them. If you practice some of the principles described above you won’t crave them anymore either.
Truly, we are only as disciplined as what our bodies dictate. You can make avoidance of harmful foods a strength when you commit to eating quality food that is nutrient dense. This becomes a self perpetuating loop of healthiness that snowballs into ease and becomes your new normal. The choices you will make throughout your day become automatic. Your body will crave the nutrition and you will likely feel less inclined to reach for the muffin.
Everyone wants quick and easy. If anyone has to think too hard constantly about health choices they tend to make bad ones. Nobody wants to build up more stress just trying to be healthy. Once you hit on a good cycle, these choices become automatic, and you will be the super healthy envy of your friends.
