Heart Health Promise Of Fiber

Fiber.

That plant substance we might want to eat volumes of in order to keep regular.

25 grams daily volume of.

Fiber helps us to naturally remove toxins.  It also binds with cholesterol-rich bile acids, preventing them from being absorbed into the body

The typical American diet just doesn’t “get” fiber.

I remember when I was first introduced to the concept of eating raw foods.

When someone recommended to me the ideal volume of raw one might strive to eat daily I was stunned…

Are you ready?

Have you had your FOUR cups of raw vegetables today?

MOST folks don’t eat this way.

Eating raw foods is one fiber source.

Fiber supplementation can also be of value

If you have diverticulosis, high cholesterol, stomach problems, are overweight, irregular, bloated, have poor complexion, colon cancer, hemmorrhoids, colitis, chronic constipation or hunger pangs you  may benefit from supplementing fiber

Not all fiber supplements are equal. Our fiber contains the most soluable fiber on the market. Havingboth soluble and insoluable fiber is important. Our fiber was also clinically tested at Stanford University of Medicine.

Benefits of Fiber include:

reduces the risk of some kinds of cancer
helps control blood cholesterol levels
reduces the risk of heart disease
helps maintain stable blood sugar levels
promotes regularity essential for colon health
helps remove toxins from the body

Tests prove our fiber lowers total cholesterol by 33 points in just four weeks! Clinically tested at Stanford University School of Medicine.
