Why Do I Need Fiber?
Fiber improves digestion, promotes regularity, and can even lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the absorption of dietary cholesterol and other toxins into the bloodstream.* It also slows the absorption of glucose—thereby preventing sugar spikes—and makes you feel full faster and longer, so you eat less! Not getting enough fiber can lead to constipation, hemorrhoids, obesity, coronary heart disease, diabetes, gall stones, and possibly even colon cancer.
How Much Fiber Do I Need?
While there is no official Recommended Daily Allowance for fiber, the U.S. government has established Adequate Intake levels at 25 grams for women 18 to 50 years old (21g for women over 50) and 38 grams for men (30g for men over 50).
Most adults in the U.S. only get between 11 to 13 grams per day. That’s definitely not enough. So, we created an easy way to boost your diet with what your body needs. Add a full scoop of The Fiber to Shakeology and get a total of 10 grams of fiber with each shake. Since every body is different, we recommend starting with a half scoop and building your way up to a full scoop. You can even mix The Fiber with any juice, shake, or drink of your choice without making it gritty in texture or affecting the flavor. And since it contains FOS, a natural prebiotic sweetener, it will add a hint of sweetness to any drink.
What Makes The Fiber Better Than Other
Fiber Products on the Market?
Unlike other store-bought fiber products, ours contains no additives, colors, or preservatives. Most store brands only have one source of fiber, but our unique formula is derived from 5 different sources of fiber, each with its own special set of benefits. Together they not only provide fiber for better digestion but have other health benefits, like prebiotic properties, aiding in weight management, and lowering cholesterol levels.* It also contains L-glutamine, an amino acid important for preventing muscle loss and boosting immunity from overtraining. Those who work out regularly can actually use an extra dose of it every day.
