The Nuvexa Difference

Nuvexa contains patented FBCx®, which stands for ‘Fat Binding Complexer’. It is a natural fibre also known as alpha-cyclodextrin (alfadex). Each Nuvexa tablet binds up to 9g of dietary fat, helping to prevent it from being absorbed by the body. When taken with a fatty meal or snack, Nuvexa preferentially binds to dietary fats when they enter the stomach, helping to prevent their digestion and absorption.  This fat-containing 'complex' is then passed naturally.  Binding up to 9 times its weight in dietary fat, Nuvexa can help reduce up to 54g (equivalent to 486 calories) of dietary fat from being absorbed by your body each day.3,4 That’s equivalent to about 11 teaspoons of dietary fat every day.4,5
