How does Lupin8 work?

Lupin8 is a whole food and products such as this are required by the body to help counteract our existing intake of highly processed foods.

The addition of wholefoods (wholegrains) in the daily diet plan has been reported to reduce the blood glucose response and the insulin response, releasing sugar more slowly. The inclusion of  both soluble and insoluble fibre that comes from wholegrains in a healthy diet has also been reported to help lower cholesterol re absorption. Wholegrain fibres can assist in the reduction of the transit time of food through the bowel, promoting regular bowel movements and removing toxic wastes faster.

Importantly the regular  inclusion of wholegrains in the diet plan may beneficially influence satiety (appetite suppression) helping to control the urge to snack between meals.

Key benefits include:

Beneficially influence satiety (appetite suppression) and energy balance

Increasing both the amount and types of whole foods into your diet menue introduces both additional Low GI foods and high fibre foods.  Low GI, hi fibre foods are more likely to fill you up and keep you satisfied (feeling fuller) for longer. This can significantly reduce the desire to snack between meals.

Introducing more of these foods into a healthy diet  has been shown to slow the stomachs digestion of food while sending signals to the brain that it is fuller sooner. This can reduce the food intake as well as the desire to smack between meals.

Beneficially influence in Glycemic control

Foods with a lower GI also break down more slowly during digestion, giving a slower and more even rise in blood glucose levels, helping sustain energy levels for longer.

Studies have shown that following a low GI diet may have benefits for improved management of blood glucose levels, weight control and reduce the risk of a number of health problems such as Diabetes.

Studies have shown that people who have difficulties managing their blood glucose levels may benefit from the addition of low GI foods into their diet as they provide a gradual rise in blood glucose levels. This slow release of glucose into the bloodstream may also assist with controlling appetite and therefore weight.

Further studies have shown that the reduction in insulin secretion that occurs with a low GI diet may also have benefits for reducing risk factors for metabolic syndrome and glucose intolerance.

Choosing a low carb diet that includes low glycaemic index (GI) carbohydrates, reduces the intake of saturated fats and increasing fruits and vegetables combining both soluble and insoluble fibre can help achieve improved health.

Beneficially reduce cholesterol absorbtion

Dietary fibre found in whole foods is a type of carbohydrate that cannot be digested by the body’s enzymes. This fibre can be either soluble or insoluble and both types play an important role in a healthy diet.

Soluble fiber helps the body reduce cholesterol absorption by binding to it in the gut. Additionally, soluble fibre slows down the time it takes for food to pass through the stomach into the small intestine, which in turn helps slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. This has benefits in keeping you fuller for longer. and in controlling blood sugar levels, important for the management of diabetes

Improve bowel health

Consuming regular amounts of  low processed whole foods throughout the day  can reduce transit time, once the fibre reaches the  colon. Increaseing transit times  lower the colon PH and therefore  improves colon health. This naturally promotes regular bowel movements and removes toxic waste through the colon at a faster rate.

The inclusion of foods containing a “pre-biotic” (feed for the good bacteria in the lower colon) in the diet has also been shown to positively improve digestive wellbeing. the additional of pre-biotics positiviely influences the absorption of nutrients within the colon.

Beneficially assists the bodies defense mechanisms

The additional sources of Omega3, folate, niacin, antioxidants, zinc, potassium, Vitamin E and Dietary Fibre in Lupin8 has been shown to assist the bodies defense mechanisms I the following ways.

Eating foods that contain Omega 3
Omega-3 fats are beneficial in at least three areas of human health: heart disease, inflammatory disease, and development of vision and brain function in babies.

Diets containing Folate
Folate helps produce and maintain new cells. Adequate folate intake during the periconceptual period, the time just before and just after a woman becomes pregnant, assists in the protection against neural tube defects.

How does Niacin help the body function?
Niacin is used by your body to convert carbohydrates into sugar (glucose), which your body then uses for energy. Niacin is required for cell respiration, helps in the release of energy and metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, proper circulation and healthy skin, functioning of the nervous system, and normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids.

Why favor foods with Antioxidants?
Antioxidants help to counter the detrimental effects of oxygen free radicals, Oxygen free radicals have been implicated in the development of several diseases including cancer and heart disease.

Importance of Zinc
Zinc stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your body. Zinc supports a healthy immune system, is needed for wound healing, helps maintain your sense of taste and smell, and is needed for DNA synthesis. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.

Potassium is a mineral that helps the kidneys function normally. It also plays a key role in cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle contraction, making it an important nutrient for normal heart, digestive, and muscular function.

Vitamin E
As an antioxidant, Vitamin E is essential for protecting body tissue from the damage of oxidation by neutralising free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage. It is important in the formation of red blood cells and also contributes to a healthy circulatory system. Vitamin E is also great for cholesterol as it prevents it from being converted to plaque which thickens the blood vessels.
