Calorease sets itself apart with active ingredient FBCx
TORONTO — Soho Flordis is in the process of launching Calorease, a dietary supplement that helps bind to the fat in foods and reduce caloric intake up to 500 calories a day. One of the differentiators setting this diet aid apart from other supplements is the active ingredient — FBCx (α-cyclodextrin), a stimulant-free, heart-healthy fiber. FBCx binds up to nine times its weight in fat from food, safely removing it from the body before it can be absorbed.
