Powerful, Natural and Healthy
Roca Labs® Formula is based on a smart combination of healthy fibers: β-Glucan®, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Konjac and Inulin. All active ingredients are 100% natural and recognized as safe by the World Health Organization. The Formula does not require a doctor’s prescription though it is very strong “like a drug” and therefore you should use it with caution.
Anti-Cravings™ to Eliminate Cravings
Anti-Cravings™ is an FDA-approved ingredient that has the power to balance blood sugar levels. Imbalances in blood sugar levels can cause uncontrollable cravings for sweets and snacks. Anti-Cravings™ regulates these and effectively eliminates cravings. Anti-Cravings™ has other benefits as well: it has been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol levels and strengthen the immune system.

XG® (Xanthan & Guar Gum): These are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) fibers, approved by the WHO (World Health Organization). The Roca Labs® Formula contains 2 times the FDA minimum recommended daily amount. XG® will occupy most of the stomach, leaving only a limited stomach space for food intake. Activated by large amounts of water, these fibers fill your stomach for 10-16 hours. In addition, both Xanthan and Guar Gum act to regulate glucose absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and therefore, prevent elevated blood glucose levels after eating. In particular, diabetics can greatly benefit from the slowed rate of sugar absorption provided by the XG® fibers.
Maltodextrin: An easily-digested carbohydrate that slightly raises blood sugar levels to mimic the “first course” of a meal.
The Formula contains several USDA-approved vitamins, including Vitamin C, which boosts the immune system; Vitamin B6, which helps smooth skin; and Vitamin B12, which is essential for the brain and nervous system.
The Formula also contains natural and artificial flavors, FD&C Red#40, Sucralose, and Fruit Punch Flavor.
*L-Carnitine Fumarate is contained in the Premium and Custom procedures only.
Roca Labs® Natural Gastric Bypass Formula is classified as a dietary supplement and can be obtained without a doctor’s prescription. Its active ingredients are 100% natural and it is produced in an FDA-compliant facility, under GMP rules. The Formula is as strong as a drug and should be used carefully.
Who Can Use the Formula?
The Formula is not for everyone. You may NOT use the Formula if any of the following apply to you:
- You are allergic to barley, wheat or any other of the Formula’s ingredients.
- You have kidney-related medical issues, as the Formula is strongly water-absorbent.
- You cannot drink around twelve 8oz glasses (six ½ liter bottles) of water daily. It is necessary to drink this amount of water per day, as there could be a risk of dehydration from taking the Formula (resulting in a headache first, and later complications to the digestive system).
- You are very sensitive to fiber, as the Formula contains a large amount. It is possible to accustom your body to the high fiber content by introducing the Formula to your diet gradually.
- You may have a psychological eating disorder that will cause you to over-eat despite having only limited stomach availability. Before ordering, read this article to see if this may apply to you.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic or taking medications, you must consult a doctor before using the Formula.
Children age 12 and up may use the Formula only under adult supervision.
Important Note: If you have any questions or concerns about whether you are able to use the Formula, you must consult your physician before ordering. The Formula works in a PHYSICAL way to fill the stomach for 10-16 hours at a time. But as a precaution, if you are currently taking ANY medications, or have any special medical conditions, you MUST consult your physician before ordering. It is recommended that you take any medications or vitamins approximately two hours before taking the Formula (if you take them with food), or one hour before (if you take them without food). However, no advice on this site or from Roca Labs® staff replaces your doctor’s instructions.
