Why did we make it?
Did you know that studies show that more than 50% of Americans are regularly troubled by one or more digestive symptoms? The standard American diet contains little to no dietary fiber as a result of highly processed foods with empty calories, and that makes it difficult to maintain optimal digestive health.
In fact, a whopping 95% of Americans do NOT consume the daily recommended amount of fiber in their diet according to a National Consumption Study. And the scariest part? A diet that lacks adequate fiber may increase your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity, digestive disorders and cancer. This is important stuff!
Countless people struggle to maintain healthy glucose levels because of unbalanced meals without enough fiber, leaving blood sugar levels spiking, leading to lethargy, hunger and over time, can even lead to chronic conditions like type-2 diabetes.
And, an overwhelming 60 million people in the U.S. suffer from more serious digestive diseases like the following:
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Irritable bowel disease (IBD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
- Food sensitivities or allergies
To us, that’s a HUGE widespread problem we know we can help improve. It also hits close to home because Muniq Founder & CEO, Marc Washington, lost his beloved sister Monica, the inspiration behind Muniq, to diabetes. He founded Muniq to honor her and help families worldwide with life-saving health solutions.
When something scientifically validated to help improve your health is super convenient, delicious, and effective – you’re more likely to stick with it for health transformation.
So many people are suffering with what we believe to be a national health crisis, but it is not beyond our control. We are obsessively dedicated to making a difference in people’s health through convenient, healthy products and healthy food education.
Let’s empower ourselves to know better so we can do better! Empowerfull helps make it easy.
Discover The Science Behind Empowerfull
Your digestive health is highly dependent upon what foods you eat. Diets rich in fiber (specifically prebiotic fibers like resistant starch) help keep everything flowing along the digestive tract, which is the goal of good digestion. When your digestive system is functioning properly, you should not experience recurring symptoms including constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas and bloating or discomfort.
So where does your gut microbiome fit into this fiber and digestion puzzle? Without beneficial gut bacteria, you wouldn’t be able to properly digest food or absorb nutrients.The healthier your gut microbiome, the better your digestive health, according to research. And when your gut microbiome is strong and functioning optimally, you’re less likely to experience digestive symptoms, weight gain, brain fog, anxiety, and skin issues. Still thinking, “gut-micro-what?”
Imagine your gut microbiome as a daily battlefield between unique species of bacteria. The “bad” bacteria try to make you unwell while the “good guys” are intent on keeping you flourishing and work together to perform many bodily functions. When you’ve got a strong microbiome with lots of “good guys,” they can help fight off the “bad guys” that are trying to make you sick. Whose court do you want the ball to be in? Good guys for the win!
You might now be thinking, “Wait, can’t I just take probiotic supplements to feed the good bacteria in my gut?” The problem is, many probiotics don’t even make it to your gut. They end up dying off because of digestive stomach acids and other factors. Plus, one of the biggest reasons probiotics don’t work is that they need to be fed.
To the rescue, resistant starch!
Viva la Resistance! The Power of Resistant Starch
Resistant starch, a super-powered prebiotic and the preferred meal of some of the most influential “good” bacteria in your gut, is resistant to human digestion so it doesn’t die off before it reaches the gut microbiome, and doesn’t affect your net carb count or spike your blood sugar levels. And, it can even help curb your appetite!
Resistant starch is naturally found in small amounts in starchy plant foods like:
- Green, unripened bananas & plantains
- Cooked and cooled potatoes and rice
- Uncooked rolled oats
- Beans & legumes
- High-amylose corn
Empowerfull helps you get the right amount and blends of starchy plant fiber in an easy, delicious, and super convenient way like never before.
What ingredients does Empowerfull contain?
Empowerfull is made with our proprietary, patented blend of just four ingredients, our patented formulation where all four ingredients work synergistically together to give you exponential benefits:
- Green Banana Powder Resistant Starch: Did you know that green bananas are an excellent source of resistant starch, the superstar prebiotic fiber that helps stabilize your blood sugar, improve your gut microbiome and supercharge your overall health?
- Oat Beta Glucan: This superfood, full of prebiotic fiber, helps stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol levels, and strengthen the walls of your intestines.
- Potato Starch: This prebiotic resistant starch helps improve digestion, insulin sensitivity, blood sugar, and even promotes weight loss.
- Soluble Vegetable Fiber: This helps you feel fuller for longer, curb those sneaky snack cravings, and prevent blood sugar levels from hitting dramatic peaks and valleys from mindless snacking.
Oh, and did we mention it’s only 10 calories and has a mere 1g of net carbs? Score!
Plus, it’s all natural!
What are the health benefits?
What are some of the proven health benefits of resistant starch, like that included in Empowerfull?
Here are just a few of many:
- Healthy Glucose Levels: Consuming resistant starch daily, combined with oat beta glucan can help reduce HbA1C, fasting glucose, and post-meal glycemic response.
- Reduce Excess Weight: Daily consumption of 4.5 grams of resistant starch is associated with a reduction in body weight, BMI, waist and hip circumferences, and fat mass percentage.
- Strengthen and Heal the Gut Microbiome: Resistant starch positively impacts the gut by increasing microbiome diversity and Bifidobacteria.
- Reboot Metabolism: All the chemical reactions in the body that keep us alive and functioning, known as our metabolism, can work more efficiently, give us more energy, and make us feel better when our diet promotes healthy digestion and a strong gut microbiome.
- Improve Digestion: The healthier your gut microbiome, the better your digestive health so you can properly digest food and absorb nutrients, according to research.
- Curb Cravings: It’s resistant to digestion so it helps keep blood sugar stable after meals and helps you feel full for hours, reducing your appetite.
We put Empowerfull to the test!
In a pilot study evaluating Empowerfull’s impact on postprandial glucose in healthy individuals consuming breakfast foods, we tested the blood sugar levels of participants after eating breakfast foods (Bagel & Juice, Baked Biscuit, Flaky Corn Cereal or Crispy Rice Cereal) without Empowerfull vs. with Empowerfull to see how it affects post-meal blood sugar levels every 15 minutes, for 120 minutes after the meal. The results unanimously showed that adding Empowerfull to meals stabilized post-meal blood sugar levels and lowered blood sugar spikes by up to 42%!
- Bagel & Juice + Empowerfull = 42% reduction in blood sugar
- Baked Biscuit + Empowerfull = 22% reduction in blood sugar
- Flaky Corn Cereal + Empowerfull = 22% reduction in blood sugar
- Crispy Rice Cereal + Empowerfull = 23% reduction in blood sugar

How many Empowerfull packets should you consume each day?
The easy answer? Make sure you have 1-3 packets each day for a guaranteed 8-24 grams of fiber, no matter what you eat or don’t eat.
Now, consider this. The recommended daily dose of fiber per day for women is a minimum of 21-25 grams and 30-38 grams for men.
To put that into perspective, even so-called high-fiber foods like oat bran muffins, oatmeal, and a cup of quinoa each only contain 5 grams of fiber per serving, so it can be tough for anyone to get the recommended amount through diet alone.
But even if you’re getting fiber in your diet, Empowerfull makes sure you get gut-healing resistant starch fiber.
If you’re drinking a daily Muniq Shake, you’re ahead of the game with 15 grams of fiber in your shake. Go Muniq Lifers!
Add just one packet of Empowerfull into a food or drink, such as your daily coffee or tea, stir, and sip — and you’re off to an incredible start! And, you’re getting your fiber in – without taxing your system with unwanted sugar or refined carbs that spikes your glucose levels and can lead to weight gain! It’s a win-win.
Just make sure to up your daily dose of fiber slowly to give your body time to adjust. For example, you can start with one packet a day for a week, then ramp up to two or three packets per day as your body adjusts to the powerful resistant starch fibers!
What can you add Empowerfull to?
You can easily mix it into just about any food or drink – without changing the taste! It adds a nice mouthfeel to drinks and it helps make those not-so-healthy foods a bit healthier and more filling, and is the perfect addition to a healthy diet. Here are just a few ideas of foods and drinks you can empower.
- Drinks: coffee, tea, water, smoothies and more
- Baked Goods: No need to substitute out anything — just add it as you’re mixing up the recipe! Try pancakes, muffins, or scones.
- Sauces: Tomato sauces, salad dressings, simmer sauces, even BBQ sauce!
