Description
The Super Fruit Weight Loss Breakthough, Stimulant Free
  • Healthy Weight Loss
  • Promotes Wellness and Improved Appearance
  • Super Antioxidant
  • Feel Great
Physician Recommended
  • HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS - The nutrient composition and bio-activity of the Guava fruit support the notion that it is beneficial for regulation of metabolic processes, including energy metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and down-regulation of oxidative stress related fat accumulation.
  • SUPER ANTIOXIDANT- The antioxidant activity of Guava fruit is virtually unrivaled with more than 3.5x greater activity than Pomegranate, 4x greater activity than Apples, more than 16.5x greater activity than Banana, and more than 22x greater activity than Pineapple, by way of example.
  • PROMOTES WELLNESS & IMPROVED APPEARANCE - Emerging research shows that the Guava fruit is a true "Super Fruit", the ultimate "Super Fruit", in fact, with a nutrient composition and bio-activity that is unrivaled by nutritional stalwarts Mango, Apple, Pomegranate, Banana, Watermelon, Grape, Pineapple, etc., for supporting health and wellness.
  • FEEL GREAT - Proper nutrition is a major factor in how one feels, and Guava fruit delivers more milligram-for-milligram nutrition and antioxidant capability than virtually any other "Super Fruit" or "Super Food".
"GUAVA may very well be the healthiest fruit on the entire planet. It is the ultimate super fruit with endless benefits. I recommend it to everyone"- Gary I. Weinberger, MD Some of the Benefits of Guava include Supporting Healthy Weight Loss, Antioxidant Properties (ORAC Values), Skin Care and when used as part of your Diet may Promote Healthy Blood Sugar Levels. Based on comparative ABTS standard radical in-vitro model, Guava Ext. exerts comparative antioxidant activity as compared to Green Tea Ext., suggesting that Guava Ext. is highly bio-active with potential general health and wellness, and weight management indications, as is the case with Green Tea Ext.
  • Guava Extract - Guava fruit delivers more milligram-for-milligram nutrition and antioxidant capability than virtually any other "Super Fruit" or "Super Food".
  • Raspberry Ketones - Raspberry ketone is a major aromatic compound of red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) and is similar in structure to the two well-known weight management agents, capsaicin and synephrine. Scientific evidence indicates raspberry ketone may enhance energy metabolism and reduce both fat and sugar induced weight gain
  • Saffron Extract - This standardized saffron extract provides support for healthy body weight by targeting some of the emotional factors that make you eat more when you're trying to eat less.
  • Blueberry Extract- Blueberries have one of the highest oxygen radical absorbance capacities (ORAC) levels of all fruits and vegetables. Consumption of blueberries may help improve mild memory problems associated with aging. Blueberries are a natural source of vitamin C and specific polyphenols that make blueberries near the top when it comes to antioxidant activity per serving.
For Maxium Results Combine With: Methoxyburn™ - 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the afternoon or GRPG™ - 1 capsule 1 hour prior to bedtime.

Health Notes

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and Other Oligosaccharides

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and Other Oligosaccharides
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

High Triglycerides
Dose: 8 to 20 grams daily
Several trials have shown that FOS supplementation lowers triglycerides in people with elevated levels. (more)
Eczema
Dose: 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides mixture added daily to infant formula
In one study, adding a mixture of 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides to infant formula prevented the development of eczema in babies who were at high risk of developing eczema. (more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Refer to label instructions
In one trial, supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides significantly lowered fasting blood-sugar levels and serum total-cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.(more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 5 grams per day
Supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides may help relieve abdominal discomfort, fullness, constipation, urgency, and diarrhea. (more)
Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) appears to improve iron absorption and restore iron levels, which may be reduced after surgery.(more)
High Triglycerides
Dose: 8 to 20 grams daily

Several double-blind trials have evaluated the efficacy of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) or inulin (a related compound) for lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. These trials have shown that in individuals with elevated total cholesterol or triglyceride levels, including people with type 2 diabetes, FOS or inulin (in amounts ranging from 8 to 20 grams daily) produced significant reductions in triglyceride levels; however, the effect on cholesterol levels was inconsistent.1, 2, 3, 4 In people with normal or low cholesterol or triglyceride levels, FOS or inulin produced little effect.5, 6, 7

Eczema
Dose: 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides mixture added daily to infant formula

In a double-blind trial, the addition of a mixture of 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides to infant formula prevented the development of eczema in infants who were at high risk of developing eczema. The incidence of eczema in the first six months of life was 9.8% in the group receiving oligosaccharides, compared with 23.1% in the placebo group, a statistically significant difference. The product used in this study was designed to mimic the oligosaccharide content of human milk, and was added at a concentration of 0.8 grams per 100 ml.1

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Refer to label instructionsIn a preliminary trial, supplementation with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) (8 grams per day for two weeks) significantly lowered fasting blood-sugar levels and serum total-cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.1 However, in another trial, supplementing with FOS (15 grams per day) for 20 days had no effect on blood-glucose or lipid levels in people with type 2 diabetes.2 In addition, some double-blind trials showed that supplementing with FOS or galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) for eight weeks had no effect on blood-sugar levels, insulin secretion, or blood lipids in healthy people.3, 4 Because of these conflicting results, more research is needed to determine the effect of FOS on diabetes and lipid levels.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 5 grams per day In a double-blind trial, supplementation with 5 grams of fructo-oligosaccharides per day for six weeks was significantly more effective than a placebo at relieving symptoms of dyspepsia such as such as abdominal discomfort, fullness, constipation, urgency, and diarrhea. The average symptom severity decreased by 44% in the group receiving fructo-oligosaccharides.1

Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
Dose: Refer to label instructions

One preliminary study found iron levels to be reduced after both minor and major surgeries, and iron supplementation prior to surgery was not able to prevent this reduction.1 A controlled trial found that intravenous iron was more effective than oral iron for restoring normal iron levels after spinal surgery in children.2 One animal study reported that supplementation with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) improved the absorption of iron and prevented anemia after surgery,3 but no human trials have been done to confirm this finding. Some researchers speculate that iron deficiency after a trauma such as surgery is an important mechanism for avoiding infection, and they suggest that iron supplements should not be given after surgery.4

The term "oligosaccharide" refers to a short chain of sugar molecules ("oligo" means "few" and "saccharide" means "sugar.") Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin, which are found in many vegetables, consist of short chains of fructose molecules. Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), which also occur naturally, consist of short chains of galactose molecules. These compounds can be only partially digested by humans.1, 2, 3, 4 When oligosaccharides are consumed, the undigested portion serves as food for "friendly" bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species.

        Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Guava™:

        I use this product one capsule twice a day (sometimes I forget the second dose).

        When I first used this product, I was not certain of the benefit. I did not notice much. I did not realize its power until I stopped taking it. I could not believe how much I craved sugar without it. It was non-stop.

        I started taking it again and I am able to forgo my sugary afternoon snacks.

        I also struggle with hypoglycemia and this helped.

        I have not stopped taking it since and it only gets better.

                    I've only used this product one time. I tried it and within an hour or so, I had horrible stomach cramping and pain, then I spent a few hours visiting the bathroom. Not something I would prefer to do. I will try it one more time, maybe it was a fluke, but if it happens again, I'd say this isn't as awesome of a product as "everyone" says it is! :(
