Proprietary prebiotic that sequesters dietary fat to support a healthy weight and lipid profile† (formerly Nuvexa™)
- Also available in:
- 180 tablets
Lipexa contains the soluble fiber, alpha-cyclodextrin, a prebiotic patented as FBCx®. FBCx has been researched for over a decade. Clinical studies show that Lipexa 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. Lipexa assists in supporting normal blood lipids.† Lipexa can also help to manage weight by reducing the absorption of dietary fat when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.†

2 tablets with a fat-containing meal or snack, 3 times daily or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, wheat, gluten, soybeans, and yeast. Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
Individuals on a low fat diet should consult their healthcare professional. May cause intestinal upset or flatulence if taken in excess. If you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare professional before using this product. Keep out of reach of children.
Animal studies suggest Lipexa 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 Lipexa 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.
Lipexa can be safely added to a balanced and nutritious diet. Two tablets of Lipexa may be taken with meals or snacks 3 times per day. Combine Lipexa with a healthy diet and exercise program.
By inhibiting dietary fat absorption, Lipexa 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 Lipexa. The best supportive results will be observed when Lipexa is combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.
Lipexa is free of milk, casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, gluten, yeast, and soy and does not contain artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
No, Lipexa does not contain caffeine or any other stimulants.
There is no need to avoid a high-fiber diet while using Lipexa. Lipexa with FBCx may be counted as part of your daily fiber intake. Each serving contains 2 grams of fiber.
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 Lipexa, 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.
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 Lipexa 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, Lipexa can prevent the absorption up to 486 dietary calories per day.†
