  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the addition of capsules containing soluble fibre complex emulsified with medium chain triglycerides and taken before with meals will lead to a significant amount of weight loss, reduced glycemic volatility and diminished cardio metabolic risk factors in overweight and obese individuals when compared to a placebo control.

We believe that those participants taking 3-6 capsules per day of the treatment capsules over a 14 week period will loose a significant amount of weight compared to the placebo group.
