Sequesters dietary fat to support healthy levels of triglycerides and cholesterol and help manage weight†
- Also available in:
- 90 tablets
Nuvexa™ contains the soluble fiber alpha-cyclodextrin, patented as FBCx®. FBCx® has been researched for over a decade. Clinical studies show that Nuvexa™ assists in supporting healthy cholesterol and triglycerides and helps to maintain triglycerides after meals.† While typical dietary fibers sequester dietary fat in an approximate 1:1 ratio, in the laboratory, FBCx® has demonstrated an impressive fat-complexing capability of 1:9.† The FBCx® fat complex passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed and is metabolized and eliminated without unpleasant side effects. Nuvexa™ assists in supporting normal blood lipids.† Nuvexa™ can also help to manage weight by reducing the absorption of dietary fat when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.†

Nuvexa™ is a dietary supplement containing a soluble fiber called alpha-cyclodextrin, in a patented form known as FBCx®. Clinical studies show that Nuvexa™ assists in supporting healthy cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism and helps to manage weight by reducing the absorption of dietary fat when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.†
According to laboratory studies, each 2-tablet serving of Nuvexa™ is capable of sequestering up to 18 grams of dietary fat (equal to about 162 calories) preventing its digestion and absorption. While typical dietary fibers adhere to dietary fat in an approximate 1:1 ratio, FBCx® has demonstrated a fat-complexing capability of up to 1:9. When taken as directed, Nuvexa™ can prevent the absorption up to 486 dietary calories per day.†
Animal studies suggest Nuvexa™ may have a greater sequestering affinity for saturated fats and trans fatty acids. In one human study, it had no effect on serum vitamin D3 levels. Although it has not been shown to interfere with beneficial fats, it is recommended that Nuvexa™ be taken away from fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E, and K) and other beneficial fat-soluble nutrients, such as CoQ10 or fish oil.
Nuvexa™ can be safely added to a balanced and nutritious diet. Two tablets of Nuvexa™ may be taken with meals or snacks 3 times per day. Combine Nuvexa™ with a healthy diet and exercise program.
By inhibiting dietary fat absorption, Nuvexa™ can support healthy triglyceride and cholesterol metabolism and the rise of serum triglycerides after meals.†
Adults take 2 tablets with meals or snacks 3 times per day or as directed by a healthcare professional. Ensure adequate intake of water when taking Nuvexa™. The best supportive results will be observed when Nuvexa™ is combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.

Dietary supplements are not approved by the FDA. However, the FDA does recognize some substances as being GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). FBCx® alpha-cyclodextrin, the fiber ingredient in Nuvexa™, has a GRAS designation up to the recommended daily dosage of 6 tablets.
FBCx® was patented by two professors from the Department of Nutrition and Food Science and Department of Pathology of Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Laboratory research identified that 1 gram of FBCx® sequesters and eliminates approximately 9 grams of dietary fat. Animal research showed the beneficial effects of FBCx® on body weight management. These beneficial effects were later verified in clinical trials with healthy adults.
