Protein:boosts satiety + builds calorie-burning lean muscle
There’s no denying the fact that protein is the most satiating macronutrient—meaning, it keeps you full the longest. When consumed first thing, it’s been shown to curb cravings and reduce snacking later in the day, potentially warding off weight gain1. Not only that, but protein helps build metabolically active lean muscle—and the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you naturally burn at rest2. One serving of Ka’Chava contains 25 grams of protein from sources such as pea protein, whole grain brown rice, sacha inchi, amaranth, and quinoa.
Fiber:boosts satiety + supports your gut
Like protein, fiber is incredibly filling and stays in your digestive system much longer than quickly digested refined carbs and sugars. Fiber also balances blood sugar, which can help reduce hunger and cravings for sweets, and numerous studies have drawn a connection between high-fiber diets and weight loss3. Fiber also serves as food for the healthy bacteria in your gut—which, as you’ll learn, are also associated with maintaining a healthy weight. Ka’Chava contains 4-7 grams of fiber per serving, or 14-25% of your recommended daily intake, from sources like whole grain oats, chia, flax, and inulin.
Probiotics:helps regulate appetite + metabolism
Gut bacteria play an important role in metabolism, appetite regulation, and satiety. When the “good” gut bacteria outnumber the “bad,” research has shown that levels of beneficial compounds called short chain fatty acids increase in the gut, which may trigger the production of hormones that regulate appetite4. Other research has found that overweight people who took a probiotic supplement for 3 months had a significant reduction in visceral fat5—the kind that surrounds vital organs and ups your risk for serious health issues. Ka’Chava contains both L. rhamnosus and L. acidophilus probiotic strains
Omega-3 fatty acids:boosts satiety + helps regulate metabolism
We should all know by now that healthy fats do not make you fat—in fact, they can do quite the opposite. Research has shown that increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is often associated with a reduced likelihood of being obese (including reduced abdominal obesity)6. Experts think omega-3s might exert these beneficial effects in a number of ways, from increasing fat burn to suppressing appetite to reducing inflammation. Ka’Chava contains omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds, flaxseeds, and sacha inchi seeds.
Magnesium:regulates blood sugar + counters stress
Magnesium is a key mineral for energy production and metabolism, and it plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body7, including blood sugar regulation. Research has found that higher magnesium intake is associated with lower fasting blood sugar8, which could help keep junk food cravings in check. Additionally, magnesium seems to play an important role in managing stress9—which can have a significant impact on metabolism and trigger mindless eating. Ingredients in Ka’Chava such as kale, spinach, and cocoa contain magnesium, and one serving of Ka’Chava packs 48-69% of your daily magnesium needs.
Vitamin D:may influence fat metabolism + storage
Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common, and low levels can mess with just about everything—including the ease at which you’re able to lose weight and how much body fat you store. One study found that overweight women on a diet and exercise regimen lost more weight if they also received a daily vitamin D supplement10, while other studies suggest that increasing vitamin D intake may help reduce body fat even if it doesn’t affect weight11. Experts aren’t quite sure why it has this effect, but one theory is that vitamin D affects metabolism in a way that reduces the formation12 and storage13 of new fat cells. While vitamin D is often difficult to find from plant-based dietary sources, Ka’Chava contains 25% of your daily needs.
