Supplements #19: GUAR GUM helps control your appetite by swelling in the stomach and sending a fullness signal to your brain.

GUAR GUM helps control your appetite by swelling in the stomach and sending a fullness signal to your brain. It is made from the beans of the guar plant and is a soluble fiber. It acts as a prebiotic and feeds healthy bacteria in the Microbiome. It should be consumed as a powder or added to your Protein-Rich shake. Tablets of guar were removed from the market after consumers choked on tablets that swelled in their throat. Guar is helpful for weight management and at higher doses can lower cholesterol levels. The side effect of higher doses of guar is gas production and flatulence. So if you take too much guar, sit near an open window! Guar like other fibers is an aid to weight management when combined with Protein-Rich shakes, Balanced Nutrition, and Healthy Active Lifestyle. #drdavidheber #fiber #weightlossjourney #guar to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
