ReNew Life - Fiber Smart - 120 Vegetable Capsules
Renew Life's Fiber Smart is more than a dietary fiber supplement; it is a fiber formula that promotes digestive tract health . Fiber Smart is a soothing and nourishing blend of organic flax fiber, probiotics, herbs and amino acids. Fiber Smart contains a blend of organic flax fiber and guar gum, which together provide the natural balance of soluble and insoluble fiber that nature intended.
- Great-tasting, organic flax fiber formula
- Naturally balanced ratio of 75% insoluble to 25% soluble fiber
- Contains probiotics and amino acids for additional digestive support
- Contains antioxidant-rich lignans
- Contains 400 million active probiotic organisms per serving
- Available in powder or capsules
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains provides an approximate ratio of 25-35% soluble fiber and 65-75% insoluble fiber. While both types of fiber are important in maintaining good health, the balance is equally important in promoting regularity. Too much soluble fiber can worsen a constipation or gas problem for some people. Fiber Smart helps to maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the small & large intestines with 900 million live Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria cultures and FOS in every serving.
The natural ingredients in Fiber Smart provide powerful relief for occasional gas, bloating, constipation and irritable bowel. Added probiotics, L-glutamine, FOS and soothing herbs promote overall digestive health and help maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora. Fiber also helps to absorb and eliminate toxins from the digestive tract, making Fiber Smart ideal for use during an herbal cleansing program.
Frequntly Asked Questions
How much dietary fiber should I consume each day?
25 to 35 grams of fiber a day is recommended. If you are currently eating a very low-fiber diet, increase your fiber intake slowly. (Increase by 5 grams at a time for a week until you reach the 25-35 grams daily.)
When is the best time to take a fiber supplement?
Fiber supplements may be taken any time of the day, either with food or on an empty stomach. It is best to separate fiber from other supplements by 30-60 minutes.
What can I mix a powdered fiber supplement in?
Fiber can be mixed with water, juice, protein drinks or fruit smoothies. It may also be sprinkled on hot or cold foods.
What is the difference between Organic Triple Fiber and Fiber Smart?
Organic Triple Fiber is a daily fiber supplement formulated from three fiber sources: organic flax, organic oat bran and organic acacia fiber. Fiber Smart is a daily organic flax fiber supplement with additional ingredients to support digestive health like L-glutamine which helps to maintain the health of the intestinal (mucosal) lining.
What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Soluble fiber works like a sponge and absorbs things like toxins and waste in the digestive tract. Soluble fiber may also help lower cholesterol. Insoluble fiber works like a broom and "sweeps" away those toxins as it moves through the digestive tract.
There are many kinds of fiber supplements. How do I know which one to take?
A fiber product with insoluble and soluble fiber is necessary to promote regularity. A fiber blend that mimics the ratio of insoluble to soluble fiber (found in a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables) is what the body recognizes as natural. A fiber with approximately 75% insoluble fiber to 25% soluble fiber is the ideal ratio for most people. For those with occasional diarrhea or a loose stools, a higher soluble fiber content may be beneficial.
Why do the Fiber Smart capsules have only have one gram of fiber?
Fiber is bulk, and only so much bulk can fit into a single capsule. A fiber supplement is just that-a supplement to your regular intake of fiber and should not be the sole source of fiber in your diet. The powdered form offers more fiber per serving than the capsules, but for those who are not partial to a powdered fiber supplement, ReNew Life offers capsules for convenience and ease of ingestion.
