Daily Fiber Formula is an ideal everyday fiber supplement, with a balance of essential soluble and insoluble fiber. Daily Fiber is a concentrated source of all 5 fiber types. Fiber is essential for normal regularity and digestive health, and has additional health benefits throughout the body.
Soluble fiber helps to support the population of friendly bacteria in the colon, softens the stools, helps promote heart and cardiovascular health, and supports production of protective short-chain fatty acids in the colon.
Insoluble fiber helps to absorb toxins and move waste material more quickly through the colon, removes excess bile acids, increases the bulk of stools and supports a normal, healthy lining of the intestinal tract.
Health authorities, including the Food & Drug Administration, recommend 25 to 40 grams daily of fiber for good health. Most Americans consume only 10 to 15 grams of fiber each day, less than half of the recommended amount. For improved health, it is beneficial to eat a variety of high fiber foods and take a fiber supplement as needed. Daily Fiber Formula is a simple, healthy way to help assure adequate essential dietary fiber.
ADULTS AND CHILDREN OVER 12: 1 heaping teaspoon, 1 to 3 times a day. CHILDREN 6-12: 1/2 to 1 level teaspoon, 1 to 3 times a day. Start by taking 1 serving each day. Gradually increase to 3 servings per day if needed. Stir powder briskly into at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of liquid. Drink immediately. Juice, water, soy or rice drink, and milk are all good with Daily Fiber Formula. For easiest mixing, shake in a closed jar. If product is too thick when consuming, add more liquid and stir. Drinking additional liquid is helpful. If minor gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount you take until your system adjusts. Can be taken with meals or between meals. For best results, use daily as long as desired.
As with all bulking fiber supplements, do not take within 1 to 2 hours of prescription medications. If you are taking medication or are under a doctors care, consult a health professional before use.
