OBESIGO FOR PRE AND POST BARIATRIC CARE
Bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery is becoming increasingly common as a method of reducing weight. Bariatric surgery has been proven to be very effective for obese individuals who are unable to lose weight through conventional methods. Here's how Obesigo can help in pre and post bariatric care:
1. IMPROVES WEIGHT LOSS
Obesigo is formulated with high protein to fulfill two main functions, namely thermogenesis and satiety. Increased thermic effect causes the body to burn more calories (as much as 30% energy expenditure) for processing the proteins. This helps in achieving weight reduction goals. In addition, the high protein along with high fiber content stimulates secretion of insulinotropic hormone “glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)” which further improves glucose tolerance and prevents excess weight gain.
2. PREVENTS MALNUTRITION
Obesigo provides the optimal amount & right quality of fat required for the body. Fat is an important macronutrient in the diet and should not be completely neglected. The fats in this formulation are in the form of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which are easier to absorb and utilize. The rapid utilization of MCTs supports thermogenesis, decreases fat deposition in tissues and also results in faster satiety.
3. INCREASES IMMUNITY
Obesigo contains Fructose as a carbohydrate which has a glycemic index of lesser than 55. This results in slower digestion and absorption into the blood, preventing a rise in blood sugar. When we eat foods with low Gi index, we also prevent excess energy consumption and prevent weight gain.
4. REGULATES BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
The fiber enriched formulation results in slower processing of foods as fibers are more complex to digest. A slower gastric emptying results in faster satiety and for longer period. Also, the ideal 3:1 ratio of insoluble & soluble fibers can improvr efficiency of important functions such as balance in cholesterol levels, balance in hormones like insulin, and release of important peptides that control dietary intake, further supporting weight reduction and management.
5. REDUCES RISKS OF POST-SURGERY COMPLICATIONS
The Hydroxycitric acid(HCA) in Obesigo may help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. This can help to reduce the risk of post-surgery complications and improve wound healing. Garcinia cambogia extract also helps to increase healthy gut bacteria which reduces the risk of infection after bariatric surgery.
