Tuesday Tip of the Week!

Your body needs Fiber!

To support proper bowel function, maintain cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels and aid with healthy intestinal microflora (probiotics), a person needs 25-30 grams of fiber daily and most people get less than one third of the fiber needed to maintain good digestive health.

There are two forms of fiber: soluble and insoluble.

Soluble fiber attracts water and turns to gel during digestion. This slows digestion. Soluble fiber is found in oat bran, barley, nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, peas, and some fruits and vegetables. Soluble fiber has been scientifically proven to lower cholesterol, which can help prevent heart disease.

Insoluble fiber is found in foods such as wheat bran, vegetables, and whole grains. It appears to speed the passage of foods through the stomach and intestines and adds bulk to the stool.

Pinnaclife’s Prebiotic Fiber has no unpleasant taste, texture or lumps.  It is gluten free, incredibly convenient and cost-effective.  One scoop of prebiotic fiber per day will promote regularity and improve the body’s ability to absorb the vital nutrients obtained through diet.

If fiber is so amazing, then why aren’t more people consuming the right amount to obtain all of the benefits?

Most People:

  • Don’t know how much fiber they need
  • Don’t know where to get good fiber
  • Think fiber tastes bad
  • Forget to drink enough water
  • Think that they are getting all the fiber they need in their diet alone

Good health starts with fiber!
