Adequate fiber is needed for proper bowel motility, clearance of toxins and waste products, healthy weight management, and of course – cardiovascular health.* Fiber Helper™ contains oat beta-glucan and psyllium for cardiovascular support allowing our product to have an FDA-approved health claim to reduce the risk of heart disease. Fiber Helper™ mixes easily and has a smooth, light oat taste.
Your liver produces bile, which stores in your gallbladder, and is released into your digestive tract to help digest fat. In your body's eloquent system of economy fat soluble toxins and extra cholesterol are also added to bile and sent into your digestive tract. Once there, dietary fiber binds up the waste products and extra cholesterol for excretion in your bowel movements. If you don't have adequate fiber both toxins and extra cholesterol can be reabsorbed, causing problems.*
Adequate dietary fiber ensures a more healthy relationship between your liver, digestion, and cholesterol. This strategy is one aspect of cholesterol fitness, and not the be-all and end-all approach to the subject. Your liver can easily make as much cholesterol as it wants, regardless of how much fiber you ingest or cholesterol you don't eat. The goal is to keep your liver happy. Thus, if your liver has decided it wants to secrete some extra cholesterol into your digestive tract it is your job to make sure there is adequate fiber to promote its natural clearance.*
Fiber Helper™ combines three unique fibers in high quality forms for a pleasant-tasting, easy-mixing, non-gas forming fiber that contains no sweeteners of any kind.* Fiber Helper™ mixes well with Daily Protein™ or Daily Protein Plus™ for a great breakfast combination or it may be taken alone in a tall glass of water.
Many fiber products either taste awful, contain excess sweeteners to make them palatable, gum up in water and are hard to swallow, or make excessive gas when consumed. Fiber Helper is a breakthrough fiber formulation that reduces these issues.* The unique arabinogalactan dissolves 100% in water, has no taste, and is significantly less gas forming than other types of fiber.* The psyllium husk we use is a high grade fine particle, helping to prevent clumping.*
Nutrim™ oat bran was originally developed and patented by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It has long been known that oat soluble-fiber beta-glucans support the maintenance of healthy cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood glucose levels.* Nutrim™ not only concentrates these important beta glucans but also provides a smooth mouth feel with a mild oat flavor.
The FDA allows the following claim:
Soluble fiber from foods such as oats and psyllium, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Fiber Helper supplies .75 grams of the needed 3 grams of oat beta glucan soluble fiber from oats and 3.5 grams of the needed 7 grams of soluble fiber from psyllium necessary per day to have this affect. Thus, 1 serving provides 75% of the soluble fiber per day for this FDA approved health claim.
