FIBERICH is a 100% psyllium seed husk that comes from the crushed seeds of the plantago ovata plant.
Psyllium is a natural fiber grain, not related to wheat, that yields 60 to 70 percent soluble fiber, eight times that of oat bran.
PROMOTES A HEALTHY DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. FIBERICH helps eliminate constipation and regulates bowel movement. It can be used regularly, as opposed to harsh stimulant laxatives which should only be used occasionally. It is helpful in chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulosis, hiatus hernia and diabetes.
HELPS LOWER CHOLESTEROL LEVELS. FIBERICH binds with cholesterol secreted in bile acids and excretes it before it is absorbed in the bloodstream. Taken as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
HELPS YOU STAY FIT. FIBERICH adds volume to your meals without adding calories, and helps stave of hunger to keep you feeling full longer. Soluble fiber adds bulk to the stomach and absorbs water to form a gel-like substance which produces softer stools.
AIDS IN BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT. FIBERICH slows down digestion to allow the gradual release of glucose. The slower the digestion of carbohydrates, the slower the increase in blood sugar level because less insulin is needed.
HELPS PREVENT DISEASES. FIBERICH acts like a "sponge" that has the ability to absorb toxins in the colon by creating a spongy, gelatinous mass in the bowels. By swelling about 35 to 50 times its size and absorbing water, it breaks down and moves toxic waste matter stuck in the folds and crevices of the bowel. The intestines require an adequate amount of bulk in order for peristalsis to occur. This spongy effect stimulates peristalsis, the rhythmic muscular contractions in the bowel that are responsible for the evacuation process. Through this process, a harmful bacterium that survives on human waste passes through the intestines and is eliminated.
