Product Description

Fiber is an indigestible substance that comes from the walls of plant cells. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble (roughage). The solubility of fiber refers to its ability to dissolve in water. As the names indicate, soluble fibers dissolve in water, while insoluble fibers do not.

Fiber is best known for its ability to induce bowl movements. Although it has been used for thousands of years to help with constipation, fiber is known to enhance health in many ways. For example, insoluble fiber contributes to feelings of fullness. Because fiber can not be digested, it acts as dietary "filler." When consumed, fiber occupies space in the stomach, and upon absorbing water and macronutrients, expands in volume. Resulting from the consumption of insoluble dietary fiber, individuals may experience fullness (satiety), a decrease in overall caloric intake, and possible weight loss.

Soluble fiber has been shown to reduce the speed of gastric emptying. The slowing of gastric emptying will result in prolonged feelings of fullness. This, theoretically, will result in an overall reduction of consumed calories, thus contributing to weight loss. Therefore, if weight loss is your goal, it is important that fiber be consumed, regardless of type.
