Why Should I Add Ready Fiber To My Diet?
The National Fiber Council recommends between 26-35 grams of dietary fiber daily to support proper digestive function and promote a healthy heart; yet most Americans barely get half of this. Fiber itself is broken down into two varieties, soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fibers provide bulk to your stool and improve elimination times; however because they remain largely intact during digestion, supplements that contain them often have an unpleasant gritty, or chalky texture. Soluble fiber easily dissolves into water, and also provides bulk to your digestive tract, as well as helps support normal blood sugar and healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Ready Fiber contains only 100 percent soluble fiber, in the world’s first and only clear liquid form. With Ready Fiber you can quickly and easily ensure 100% of your recommended daily fiber with no extra effort. It can be easily added to any food, or beverage “as is,” straight from the bottle with absolutely no mixing, stirring, or water required. Ready Fiber was originally formulated by medical professionals for use in convalescent hospitals where sensitive patients couldn’t eat enough foods to get the daily fiber they needed. Typical, widely used psyllium fiber powders, with their potential to block the absorption of medicines, and supplements were problematic. Ready Fiber was specifically developed as the solution to this “fiber dilemma.”
Additional Prebiotic Support of FOS…
Many persons have heard of probiotics, supplements that introduce healthy bacteria into your intestinal tract to aide in the effective absorption of nutrients and to support proper digestive function. However, it’s difficult for many probiotics to pass through the upper digestive tract witho:" ":rting a decrease in blood triglyceride levels. Ready Fiber, is not only the world’s first and only clear liquid fiber, but also provides the proactive digestive support of FOS.
Frequently Asked Questions
How was Ready Fiber developed?
Ready Fiber was originally formulated and used by medical professionals in the assisted living care industry for patients that could not use powder and pill fiber products.
What is the fiber Health Direct uses and how is it low calorie?
Health Direct's fiber is a proprietary blend of polydextrose and FOS (a pure concentrated short chain fructo-oligasaccharides). It is highly concentrated, allowing them to deliver a significant amount of fiber (12 grams) in one ounce of liquid. Health Direct's fiber is also unique in that it is a low calorie fiber. Normally, fiber yields 4 calories per gram, but the fiber in Ready Fiber yields only one calorie per gram of fiber.
What kind of fiber is in Ready Fiber?
There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber remains largely intact (and is therefore gritty and chalky when in a fiber supplement) during the digestive process and is used to help move bulk matter through the intestines. Soluble fiber has the same benefit of promoting more effective eliminations, but can also help support and maintain healthy glucose, serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Ready Fiber contains 100% soluble fiber. This means that the fiber can be dissolved easily in water, and allows Ready Fiber to provide a superior fiber experience in a convenient liquid form.
How much fiber do I need?
The National Fiber Council and other health organizations recommend that people get 25-38 grams of fiber daily (25 for women and 38 for men). However, a recent report from Colombia University states that most people’s fiber intake is less than half of this (with 9 out of 10 Americans not getting the daily recommendation). One ounce of Ready Fiber is almost 50% of the daily fiber requirement for women!
How does Ready Fiber have 12 grams of fiber in just 1 ounce of clear liquid?
Unlike other supplements that are composed primarily of insoluble fiber, which is gritty, and bulky; Ready Fiber is a highly concentrated 100% soluble fiber proprietary blend that easily dissolves in water. Health Direct's liquid technologies and stability processes allow them to super-concentrate high amounts of this fiber in small doses.
Doesn’t fiber have to come in a powder or tablet?
That’s a common misconception that companies of other fiber products would like you to believe. Fiber naturally occurs in two forms, soluble and insoluble. Many brands utilize insoluble fibers to provide bulk in their products (so it looks like you’re actually getting more in their product). This also results in the undesirable gritty and chalky textures often associated with them. Instead, Ready Fiber is composed of a highly concentrated 100% soluble fiber combined with Health Direct's liquid technology that allows it to be available in a more convenient, liquid form.
What is FOS?
FOS (Fructo-Oligosaccharides) is a revolutionary prebiotic that provides support for the growth of beneficial bacteria (Bifidobacteria) already present in your intestines. This promotes a healthy and efficient digestive system. Ready Fiber is one of the only fibers to contain a prebiotic – the leading brands do not.
What is a prebiotic?
Many people have heard of “probiotics,” which are beneficial bacterial cultures that you take to aid your digestive system. However, probiotics are unstable and are typically improperly stored, which causes the bacteria to die or become less effective before they get into your digestive system. Plus, when you take probiotics, they have to pass through the digestive enzymes and acid in your digestive system, and oftentimes become degraded, which in turn also makes them less effective.
A “prebiotic” instead works by providing nutrients to the colonies of beneficial bacteria already present within your digestive system. Prebiotics have been shown to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria and can increase their numbers by a factor of 100! Also, without prebiotics it is difficult for probiotics to survive in our digestive system. Ready Fiber contains 12 grams of prebiotics in a one ounce serving.
Are there any problems with taking too much fiber?
Fiber is known to be one of the safest and easiest supplements available because we already consume it in the foods we normally eat. Therefore, you don’t form a habit using it (unlike some chemical laxatives used to promote regularity) and can use it on a daily basis with NO negative side effects.
Plus, unlike some insoluble fibers that can potentially affect the absorption of other dietary supplements or medicines you take, Ready Fiber’s soluble fiber doesn’t cause these same absorption problems.
About Health Direct
Health Direct has been a part of the nutrition industry for the past twenty years, originally providing products and marketing consulting to health and nutrition companies, as well as consumers. In 1996, after losing over 25 pounds and dramatically changing my shape, I was urged by friends and family to make my personal health "secrets," formulas, and programs available to them and the public. After extensive research and preparation, Health Direct was launched in April of 1996. Health Direct currently markets their own exclusive selection of unique nutritional supplements. Originally headquartered in a very modest 575 square foot office in Huntington Harbour, California, the company grew quickly and relocated in January of 2004 into their own building in Costa Mesa where they could consolidate all their offices and operations. Health Direct's current 42,000 square foot international headquarters houses all their sales, customer service, administrative, marketing, product development, shipping and distribution operations.
