This year's SupplyExpo attendees interested in a new, study-backed weight loss ingredient and its applications will have the chance to learn more about AHD International's LuraLean(R) as part of NPIcenter's Exchange educational series. "LuraLean(R): A New Innovation in Fiber for Weight Loss" will be presented by Dimitri Papadimitriou, Ph.D. on Saturday, March 7 at noon at the SupplyExpo's Global Supply Marketplace (Booth #130), located in the Anaheim Convention Center. The hour-long discussion will overview LuraLean's unique, water-soluble dietary formula supported by more than 60 clinical trials and 14 safety studies, as well as explain its advantages over other fiber ingredients and its various applications for supplements, food and beverages.
In addition to exhibiting at SupplyExpo booth #746, AHD International will also lend its expertise to Nutracon's "Slim Slam" educational track, with company president John Alkire taking part in a science-focused panel devoted to safe, efficacious weight loss ingredients chaired by Loren Israelsen, executive director of the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA).

LuraLean is a unique refined glucomannan ingredient from AHD International that promotes healthy weight loss in overweight individuals, and has been proven safe and effective for all age groups. LuraLean interacts with liquid in the stomach to swell to nearly 200 times its original size. Once expanded in the system, LuraLean promotes a feeling of satiety while traveling through the gastrointestinal tract, causing individuals to eat less. Additionally, LuraLean acts as a magnet, attracting and binding excess oils and calories and carrying them out of the system through normal digestion. AHD's LuraLean is manufactured using a proprietary extraction process that delivers a raw material that is free of enzymes and impurities, ensuring it does not break down as it passes through the gastro-intestinal tract like other fibers.
