TRIGRID contains FBCx®, a naturally occurring, patented dietary fiber. FBCx® has been researched for over a decade. Clinical studies show that Trigrid assists in supporting healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and helps to attenuate the rise of serum triglycerides after meals and snacks. While typical dietary fibers adhere to dietary fat in an approximate 1:1 ratio, FBCx® has demonstrated an impressive fat complexing capability of up to 1:9. Each serving (2 tablets) of Nuvexa™ sequesters up to 18 grams of dietary fat (equal to about 162 calories). The FBCx®-fat complex passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed and is eliminated without unpleasant side effects. When taken with meals or snacks three times per day, Trigrid can help manage weight by preventing the absorption of up to 486 calories a day (about 54 grams of dietary fat). Trigrid also assists in supporting a normal blood lipid profile.
