Benefits of Fiber

Dietary fiber – naturally found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes – is known for keeping us regular. However, fiber also provides many other benefits, such as helping to support the digestive system, maintaining immunity, and promoting overall well-being.* Making sure you get fiber in your diet is important for good health. But, in today’s busy world, even people who are making a conscientious effort to eat fruits, vegetables, and other fiber sources may still have trouble reaching their daily dietary fiber requirement.

Good for your digestive health and immune system.

Fiber, especially prebiotic fiber, is good for your digestive system because it feeds the good bacteria (called probiotics) that live in there. These good bacteria keep the bad bacteria in check, help balance your digestive system, support your immune system and help you avoid digestive problems, while maintaining the overall health of your digestive system.1* That’s an important role, so it makes sense to ensure that these good bacteria are well-fed so they can perform at their best.

Fiber Choice® chewable fiber supplements may help support your immune system.* Each Fiber Choice® tablet and gummy contains inulin, a fiber found in many fruits and vegetables. Fiber Choice, as a dietary supplement, is a convenient way to help the good bacteria in your digestive system to grow and thrive.*

Are you getting enough fiber?

The recommended daily fiber intake is 25 to 38 grams – about an ounce. But according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, most Americans only get about half that amount.2 Reaching your recommended daily fiber intake can be a challenge, but the inulin fiber in Fiber Choice® supplements makes that a lot easier. One serving of two chewable tablets or two gummies of Fiber Choice® equals four or three grams of fiber, respectively. So, up to three servings a day is a simple, convenient, and tasty way to help close the gap between the fiber you get from food and the fiber you need for overall good digestive health.

Fiber-Rich Foods and You

A healthy lifestyle is a high fiber lifestyle.

Dietary fiber, along with a well-balanced diet, is important for good health. However, just figuring out how much fiber you are actually getting each day can be challenging. Chances are it’s probably less than you think. In today’s fast-paced world, we often reach for the most convenient packaged or fast foods when we should be reaching for fruits and vegetables, as they are great sources of fiber.

Learn which foods are excellent sources of fiber, and then complement your daily intake with the convenient choice – Fiber Choice®. Every serving of Fiber Choice® fiber supplements is packed with inulin fiber, the same fiber found in many fruits and vegetables. Convenient chewable tablets and gummies make Fiber Choice® an easy and tasty way to help you get to your daily recommended intake of 25 to 38 grams of fiber.

What Fiber Does

The more you know about digestive health and the benefits of fiber, the more you know how Fiber Choice® can help.

Dietary fiber, sometimes called roughage or bulk, is the part of plant foods that your body can’t digest, but makes its way through your digestive system, assisting in your overall health along the way.*

Fiber is naturally found in thousands of edible plants, including common fruits, vegetables, and grains, and comes in two broad types – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and may help your body absorb vital nutrients from foods. Insoluble fiber stays in its fibrous form, helps food pass through the digestive system, and adds bulk to the stool. Both soluble and insoluble fiber can help support your regularity.2 Both types of fiber are important for digestion and overall health and are found (in varying proportions) in common fruits and vegetables. For example, bananas, leeks and asparagus contain inulin, a soluble fiber.

In today’s world, synthetic dietary fibers have been developed, but with the important role of fiber in mind, Fiber Choice® believes in using inulin, a fiber found in many fruits and vegetables.

Fiber Choice® supports your immune system

Fiber Choice® helps your healthy habits by giving you an easy way to get the fiber you need and more.

Not all fiber is created equal. Some can be derived from grain or can be manufactured. So when it comes to your fiber, get picky. Each serving of Fiber Choice® is packed with inulin, the fiber found in many fruits and vegetables. With two little tablets or two gummies, you get the general benefits of fiber while supporting your immune system, your digestive tract, and your overall health.1*
