Doctors of natural medicine have long held the view that ‘health begins in the gut’ - and as modern studies show, this is indeed true!
The food we eat, the efficiency with which it’s digested, the health of our microbiome (the billions of bacteria in our guts) and how we eliminate, all contribute to, or take away from our health.
But even with a healthy diet, our digestive system is susceptible to a number of environmental factors that can affect its health. Chemicals, toxins, prescription medications and imbalanced bacteria are just a few of the reasons our gut health (and the rest of our body) can be negatively affected even with a good diet!
Fiberbiotics is a complete formula that supports digestive health. It contains probiotics (specific types of fiber that your gut bacteria thrive on), probiotics (healthy bacteria), and the right combination of soluble and insoluble fibers.
Additionally, it contains botanical medicines that help repair and rebuild the sensitive lining of the digestive tract, where true nutrient absorption takes place.
Psyllium Seed Husk becomes a gel-like substance when mixed with water. This in turn has a bulking effect which promotes regular movement of the stools. In diarrhea, it absorbs excess water in the gut and slows movement of the stool while in constipation, it provides a bulk effect which stimulates movement of the bowel. It also helps to control blood sugar by slowing carbohydrate absorption and lowers cholesterol by holding onto dietary fats and moving them out of the body.
Rice Bran serves primarily as a source of insoluble fiber which adds a bulking effect to the stool. Additionally, Rice Bran contains several constituents (gamma oryzanol and tocotrienols) that slow cholesterol absorption.
Oat Bran contains both soluble and insoluble fiber - it limits absorption of cholesterol and serves as a food for healthy gut bacteria.
Flaxseed contains soluble, stool-bulking fiber helping to move it out of the body. Flaxseed also has the effect of reducing platelet aggregation (clots) and lowering cholesterol.
Probiotic Blend contains 12 different strains of beneficial bacteria. When taken with probiotics that serve as a food source of the bacteria, the effect is synergistic and helps re-establish a healthy bacteria population in the gut.
Triphala Fruit is a popular Ayurvedic herbal formula from India. It contains three herbal fruits (Harada, Amia, and Bihara) that promote intestinal cleansing, improve digestion and nutrient assimilation. It's also been shown to stimulate bile secretion which detoxifies the liver and can lower cholesterol and lipid levels in the bloodstream.
Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm Bark are two powerful mucilaginous (gel-like) herbs that work to soothe and heal the mucous membranes of the GI tract. They form a protective layer and Marshmallow has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects.
Chlorophyll is a plant substance that assists in the process of photosynthesis, giving plants their green color. Chlorophyll is helpful in the GI tract for constipation and removal of toxins.
DL-Malic Acid is found in apples and many other fruits and vegetables. In the correct ratio with magnesium, it assists in production of ATP in the body.
Guar Gum is a soluble fiber derived from the seeds of the guar plant. It works to bulk the stool up and absorbs sugars and fats from the GI tract. Because of its bulk forming properties it create a sensation of fullness and decreased appetite.
Soluble Fibers create a gel when dissolved in water. The soluble fiber in Fiberbiotics is comprised of apple pectin, citrus pectin, prune fiber, fennel seeds, aloe vera, fenugreek, guar gum, DL-Malic acid and triphala. Soluble fibers limit sugar absorption into the bloodstream, control high blood pressure, detoxify by eliminating heavy metals and toxins, promote the growth of friendly bacteria and lower the risk of heart disease.
Insoluble Fibers are mostly made of cellulose and hemicellulose, which are minimally digested. They also add bulk and promote stool regularity. These fibers also reduce toxin absorption by speeding up bowel movements. Insoluble fiber is found most often in wheat, corn, whole grains, beets, turnips, cauliflower, carrots, Brussels sprouts and cabbage.
Fiberbiotics is a convenient way to get the important fibers, prebiotics and probiotics your gut needs to be at its healthiest. Combined with a good diet and regular exercise, your GI tract will have everything it needs to stay healthy and to keep modern chronic diseases away.
