With its 5 kinds of fiber, FiberMender is an incredible help in digestion. Research studies support its health effects for satiety, weight control, glucose and lipid metabolism, and bowel regularity.
Flaxseed is a commonly used fiber to aid in the reduction of LDL cholesterol and help prevent constipation, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other medical conditions.
Glucomannan is another dietary fiber and is derived from the root of the konjac plant. It works in the stomach and intestines by absorbing water to form a bulky fiber and may also slow the absorption of sugar and cholesterol from the gut, reducing cholesterol levels and controlling sugar levels. It is one of my favorite fibers because of its impact on constipation, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Acacia Gum is a soluble fiber that is commonly used as a medicine taken orally for diabetes, obesity, and irritable bowel syndrome. It is also used as a prebiotic to promote “good” bacteria in the intestine and to remove toxins from the body. As a source of dietary fiber, it also tends to make people feel full, so they might stop eating sooner than they might otherwise, which can lead to weight loss and lower cholesterol levels.
Inulin is a type of fermentable fiber that is found naturally in the roots of many foods, such as whole wheat, onions, garlic, and artichokes, and is commonly extracted from chicory root, and added to foods. Inulin is fermented by bacteria that normalize the colon and is considered a prebiotic, which may improve gastrointestinal health as well as potentially enhance calcium absorption.
Lastly, there’s Psyllium Husk, an important prebiotic that has incredible benefits for both the heart and the pancreas–meaning it will decrease your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Psyllium affects your heart by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening the heart muscle. For diabetics, slowing down the absorption of food helps to lower blood sugar impact, helping to maintain a healthy glycemic balance.
