Get Fit With Fiber

You’ve always known fiber was good for “regularity,” but did you know research also shows fiber can help protect against serious illness as well?Unfortunately, Americans on average consume only 10-15 grams of fiber a day, far less than the 30 – 35 grams recommended by the American Cancer Society and American Dietetic Association. But don’t think popping a fiber “pill” will solve all your problems. Most of those “bulk laxatives” and fiber pills contain only soluble fiber, but the body needs both soluble and insoluble fiber.

Soluble Fiber:


Insoluble Fiber:

Fiber-rich foods include fruits, such as pears, figs and berries; vegetables, such as peas, Brussels sprouts and greens; whole grain breads, cereals and pasta; legumes, nuts and seeds, such as lentils, black beans and almonds.
Reliv’s FibRestore®, a fiber-rich antioxidant supplement, provides 10 grams of dietary fiber (both soluble and insoluble) per serving.
