Not only do the Slim Secrets bars taste like a decadent treat and provide you with solutions to your snacking dilemmas, but they also have many added benefits.
A study by researchers in Australia, found that eating high-protein, low-carb snack bars between meals can successfully take the edge off the appetites of overweight women so that they eat less during lunch and dinner. The study found that women who ate the high-protein, low-carb snack bars, ate 5 percent fewer kilojoules (mostly as carbohydrates) during regular meals as a result. They also lowered their blood glucose and insulin profiles significantly (by 14 percent and 12 percent respectively).
The Mintabolism Boost bar packs a punch with green tea extract (concentrated tea) which contains antioxidants that come from polyphenols in the tea.
Our Craving-Crusher contains NeOpuntia®, an antioxidant combination of both soluble and insoluble fibre that is naturally derived from cacti (the beautifully named Prickly Pear Cactus!). The compounds from the cacti act like a magnet and bind with fats in the intestinal tract to reduce the amount of fat the body absorbs. It goes through your stomach and acts like a sponge, mopping up fats and oils so you just excrete them. Best of all, it’s totally natural. This is the most exciting of all the ingredients!
Green tea extract contains polyphenols and has been shown to stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate. Green tea extract also regulates your body’s temperature, tempers blood sugar levels and aids the digestion process.
Studies have shown that green tea may help raise metabolic rates and speed up fat oxidation. Green tea is also a powerful antioxidant known to help reduce risk the risk of diseases such as cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure. It's also shown to help maintain a healthy digestive tract.

There is strong evidence that the high levels of fat consumed by most Australians are a major risk factor for conditions like gallbladder disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Furthermore, high levels of saturated fats, which are found in animal fats, high-fat dairy foods, tropical oils, and hydrogenated (solidified) vegetable oils, raise your cholesterol level and promote heart disease and strokes.
The benefits of a low fat diet not only include better health as shown here but also the added benefit of potential weight loss if combined with other positive actions such as exercise.
