Dietary fiber is a vital component of healthy eating, composed of carbohydrates that cannot be broken down and digested in the gut. This nutrient plays an essential role in protecting our gastrointestinal tract by including complex components such as cellulose, hemicelluloses (xylans, galactans and mannans), pectins, gums and lignin -- all of which help keep us safe from any potential digestive troubles or issues with absorption.
By providing fecal bulk, binding water and softening stools, soluble dietary fiber - such as pectin, gums and hemicelluloses- are transformed into short chain fatty acids in the colon. This decrease in acidity aids our intestinal microflora for optimal health of mucosal cells; additionally it facilitates absorption of colonic water.
By combining insoluble and soluble fiber sources, Fiber-Plex takes advantage of the key nutrition benefits that these fibers provide. From binding dietary cholesterol to providing a feeling of fullness, this formula provides essential support for enterohepatic circulation as well as overall cholesterol metabolism.
As a dietary supplement‚ adults take 3 capsules with at least 8 ounces of water twice daily‚ or as directed by your healthcare professional. The capsules may also be pulled apart‚ if desired‚ and the contents stirred into 8 ounces of water or juice.
