Sample Packs of 6 availableDigestive problems comprise the number one health problem in North America. And our bodies are becoming increasingly polluted with toxins found in the environment and in the foods we eat.
Getting adequate fiber and cleansing, or detoxifying, are two often overlooked elements of maintaining not only digestive health but also whole body health.
FiberFiber has long been recognized as one of the best food ingredients for maintaining bowel regularity and preventing constipation. Because it normalizes bowel movements, it can also be used to treat and manage chronic diarrhea. Consuming fiber reduces transit time and results in a more thorough evacuation of waste materials. It is thought to improve all aspects of colon function.
Fiber is found only in fruits and plants. It is an indigestible complex carbohydrate and, therefore, adds few, if any, calories to the diet. There are two main types of fiber-watersoluble and insoluble. Both types of fiber are required in the daily diet, in the recommended ratio of 3:1 insoluble fiber to water-soluble fiber.
Water-soluble fiberWater-soluble fiber dissolves in water and is found in oat bran, legumes, psyllium, nuts, beans, pectins, and various fruits and vegetables. It forms a bulky gel in the intestine that regulates the flow of waste materials through the digestive tract. Water-soluble fiber may lower cholesterol by preventing the reabsorption of bile acids. Bile acids are made from cholesterol, and after they aid fat digestion, fiber binds with them and escorts them out of the body. The liver then has to pull more cholesterol from the blood.
Insoluble fiberInsoluble fiber cannot be dissolved in water. meaning that our bodies cannot digest it. This type of fiber includes the undissolvable parts of plant walls and is found in greatest amounts in cereals, brans, and vegetables. The primary function of insoluble fiber is to collect water that increases stool bulk in the large intestine. This promotes bowel movement, and as the bulk works through the intestine, it scours the intestinal walls of waste matter, reducing the risk of colon related problems.
Fiber in the dietIn 2001, the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine established an Adequate Intake (AI) recommendation for total daily fiber intake. For adults who are 50 years of age and younger, the AI recommendation for total fiber intake is 38 g/day for men and 25 g/day for women. For adults over 50 years of age, the recommendation is 30 g/day for men and 21 g/day for women. Studies have found that in populations with high fiber diets, the incidences of colon cancer, appendicitis, and diverticulosis are very low. Industrialized countries, which largely have diets high in fat and low in fiber, have high incidences of these diseases. Because fiber is low in calories, it can be added to your diet, providing a greater feeling of satiety without significantly increasing your caloric intake. The fiber found in fruits and plants serves as a source of complex carbohydrate, which most nutritionists consider to be a healthy choice. In addition, fiber's ability to stabilize blood sugar may also curb the desire to snack. In other words, you may find yourself eating less. This is beneficial in weight loss programs.
Cleansing, detox, and herbsThe concept of body cleansing has been with us for centuries. Today, many health practitioners recognize the importance of keeping the body in harmony to prevent sickness; it is often referred to as cleansing or detoxification. Many health practitioners believe that as our world becomes increasingly polluted with toxins found in the environment and in the foods we eat, cleansing becomes more important.
Why cleanse?Toxins undermine our health. A body overloaded with toxins can result in a number of symptoms. These include constipation, stomach bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain, excessive mucus, poor concentration, headaches, poor skin, poor memory, depression, body odor, and bad breath. Some health practitioners relate toxins to specific diseases. They believe that chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, and fibromyalgia (muscle and joint pain) may be related to toxin exposure.
CleansingThe body does have a system in place for detoxifying harmful toxins. The most important cleansing organ is the liver. Eliminative channels include the bowels (the digestive system), kidneys, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system. When the body is not overburdened with toxins and is performing well, blood carries toxins to the liver, which uses enzymes to detoxify harmful substances. They are rendered harmless or converted into a water soluble form that is eliminated via the urine or feces. Unfortunately, this system can handle only so many toxins and was designed for "natural" toxins, not the man-made ones we have to deal with today. For example, protection against alcohol is built into our genes. One gene codes an enzyme to convert alcohol into substances that the body can use or excrete. Our body does not, however, always know how to handle the new toxins in our lives. It cannot understand how to excrete them, and they may accumulate to harmful quantities or be converted to odd, unknown substances that can interfere with metabolism. Today, there are different ways to cleanse the body. Among these are baths and hydrotherapy, diet and nutrition, herbs, chelation, and exercise. Herbal supplementation, often in conjunction with other methods, has been used for ages and is one of the most popular ways to cleanse. Herbs are said to promote cleansing by eliminating toxins from the organs and systems of the body.

How to use Herbal FiberblendSince most people consume less fiber per day than is recommended, you should start out with a one-teaspoon (2.3 g) serving, or 3 to 6 capsules once per day. Increase this to 1 teaspoon twice per day, and gradually work up to the full serving of 1 tablespoon per day, or 3 to 6 capsules twice per day.
