Nature’s Plus® Sugar Armor™ blocks up to 50% of the sugar and starch absorption in each meal. The secret to Sugar Armor is in its dual-action shielding system. 500 mg of InnuGuard™ inulin fiber from chicory surrounds the sugars and starches you eat, making them more difficult to digest and absorb. Meanwhile, 250 mg of sugar-blocking sea vegetable (brown seaweed) extract blocks sugar and starch digestion. Caution: Sugar Armor will reduce the impact of dietary sugars, but dieters should still avoid excessive levels of sugars or calories. Not intended for women who are pregnant or nursing, or anyone with any medical condition.
