What is NutriKane D?
NutriKane D™ is a safe, natural concentrated food provided in an easy to use sachet dose. It contains dietary fibres and micronutrients that have been shown to aid the maintenance of
the microbiome as well as lowering blood sugar levels.
NutriKane D has natural, pale colour, with consistency similar to that of flour. NutriKane D is available in retail carton of 28 sachets. Each carton is a 2 week supply at recommended doses.
How does NutriKane D work?
It works by assisting intestinal health.
The natural foods used to make NutriKane contain a range of nutrients and all forms of dietary fibre that can be absorbed along the entire length of the intestinal tract. This provides slow release of key nutrients (unlike highly processed foods which are absorbed too quickly). This makes the digestive tract operate more effectively and that directly assists the body’s ability to cope with other health problems.
NutriKane D™ is high in micronutrients such as bioavailable chromium (highest levels of any foods tested), both polyphenolic and flavonoid antioxidants (3 times the antioxidants of green tea) and contains high quality sources of soluble and insoluble fibre. When NutriKane D™ is consumed with meals it has been shown to lower the GI of most foods.

Why is it a concentrated food and not a fibre supplement?
NutriKane is not a fibre supplement, but a concentrated food that is high in fibre. Studies over many years have compared NutriKane (which contains a measured combination foods rich in soluble and insoluble fibres) with other products. The studies have demonstrated that the BGL effects (and also some other benefits) are provided even at extremely low doses, including doses so low that no other dietary fibre produces a measured benefit. We know the action of NutriKane in the body is related to many factors beyond the high dietary fibre content.
Is it high in Chromium and Selenium? Have these been added?
No. All the trace elements and micronutrients in NutriKane occur naturally in the plants used as raw materials. Nothing has been added to NutriKane actives except whole food raw materials.
What do I need to know before taking NutriKane D?
It is always recommended to consult your doctor when making a change to your dietary intake, nutritional management, or exercise regime.
Due to the natural presence of the necessary micronutrient bio-available Chromium, you may notice a modulation of your blood glucose levels (BGLs) if you were to measure and compare.
NutriKane D contains Potassium – 293 mg per serve
As with most fibre products, do not use in cases of medically induced constipation.
Can I mix NutriKane D in with food?
NutriKane D is designed to be taken with water. It can also be mixed with fruit juice or sprinkled on cereal, or smoothies. Some people like the slight citrus flavour on their cereal but others don’t. It can be taken with yoghurt and is not detectable in yoghurt at all.
What effect does NutriKane D have on me?
Improved regularity, without unwanted laxative effect.
Overall, an increase in their ability to manage their diet and maintain BGLs.
Short term results include improvement to feelings of well-being. This subjective result is due to rapid improvements in gut health, digestion and more natural bowel movements, and is the most common comment received.
When is the best time to take NutriKane D?
NutriKane D is best taken morning and evening, before or during a meal.
The product can be taken at any time but is most beneficial if taken with a meal as NutriKane also lowers the Glycaemic Index of the meal. Low GI foods, or meals give the body longer to process glucose which is particularly helpful for people with reduced insulin sensitivity.
NutriKane subsequently assists the body’s ability to maintain glucose levels.
How quickly will I notice the effects of NutriKane D?
Everyone’s physiology is different; depending on your condition, it is possible to see results ranging from a few days to a few months. On average most people respond with positive outcomes in one to two weeks.
Do I have to take NutriKane D with a meal?
Not necessary, but we recommend that you do, as the NutriKane D is most effective when digested with a meal for the GI lowering properties. However, you will still retain a benefit if you miss a meal and still take a serve of NutriKane D.
How do I know if NutriKane D will fit my current diet?
If you are currently on a very low fibre diet you may experience better initial results by employing a weening phase. i.e. for the first week take only half a serve and then work up to a full serve of NutriKane.
NutriKane D contributes to digestive regularity (laxation) and may assist individuals who are deficient in recommended intake of micronutrients and fibre. It is not a replacement for a balanced diet and healthy nutritional practices.
What if I forget to take NutriKane D?
If you do not follow the morning and evening meal regime there will be no negative outcome, but you derive no positive benefit from missing the serve of NutriKane D. If you forget to take a serve of NutriKane D, you may take it when alerted or resume your normal schedule and skip the dose.
What if I stop taking NutriKane D?
NutriKane D consumption may be stopped and started according to your own needs or situation.
