Fiber is deficient in the diets of most Americans due to frequent consumption of over-processed foods, stripped of their natural fiber content. The recommended intake of fiber for the general public is from 20-40 grams per day for optimal intestinal health. Short-term inadequate fiber intake can cause stomach discomfort, such as constipation, and over time it can lead to more serious and uncomfortable complications like diverticulosis, causing unwanted pain and discomfort. Fibers are classified into two categories according to their structure and how they work in the body. Insoluble fibers, such as cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, do not dissolve in water. Soluble fibers, such as gum and pectin, do dissolve in water. We need both types of fiber every day. Each form functions differently and provides different health benefits. Our supplement offers a complimentary blend of both soluble and insoluble fibers to offer a complete fiber supplement. Psyllium is rich in dietary fiber and has been traditionally used to help support a healthy digestive tract. Oat bran has the most soluble fiber of any grain; however, the whole oat grain is a good source of insoluble fiber as well. Guar gum is derived from the seed of the guar plant and provides soluble fiber.
