Feeling bloated? Feeling cramped? Feeling sluggish?
Insufficient fiber in your diet can result in feeling bloated, cramped, or sluggish – or even worse.
Most people find it challenging to increase their intake of fiber through food consumption.
Increasing the intake of fiber through through dietary supplements, can really help your digestive system and improve your overall health!

Fiber-Tastic™ provides 6 grams fiber per serving from seven different sources of soluble AND insoluble fiber for greater benefit. Includes prebiotic fiber to support the beneficial bacteria in your digestive system.
Various health organizations, including The American Heart Association, US Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that the average adult man consumes 38 grams of fiber per day, and women consume 25 grams per day from various sources. Unfortunately, the average American falls way below those guidelines, with most consuming less than 15 grams of fiber per day.
One Serving of Fiber-Tastic™ provides 6 grams of fiber!
Dietary fiber is carbohydrate, and is found in two forms: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is, as it sounds, a fiber that dissolves in water. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve, and passes through the digestive system intact – commonly referred to as “roughage”. Most foods that are high in fiber contain both forms, but are usually predominantly higher in one form or another.
Insoluble fiber, since it passes through the digestive tract intact, increases stool bulk, and can be a benefit to those suffering with constipation or irregular stool. Soluble fiber plays an important role in human health, including:
- Improved digestive health‡
- Supports cardiovascular health‡
- Support for healthy weight management‡
- Support for healthy levels of blood glucose‡
- Support for healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides‡
Easy to mix and drink with water or your favorite juice. Pleasant tasting and sweetened without the use of sugar – unlike some popular national brands.

Psyllium Husk – Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative and prebiotic, and is high in both fiber and mucilage (a polysaccharide). The laxative properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of the husk when it comes in contact with water. This forms a gelatinous mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft, provided it is taken with sufficient water. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel, followed by emptying.
Chia – The seed of a plant in the mint family, chia seeds have greatly increased in popularity in many healthy recipes. In addition to the fiber content, chia seeds are also a good source of nutrients, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds have been found to support healthy cardiovascular and digestive systems, and support healthy skin.
Inulin – is a soluble, prebiotic plant fiber that’s present in high amounts in the chicory plant. Inulin is a term applied to a blend of fructose polymers found widely distributed in nature as plant storage carbohydrates. Oligofructose is a subgroup of inulin, and neither inulin nor oligofructose are digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract; therefore, they have a reduced caloric value. They stimulate the growth of intestinal bifidobacteria that are beneficial to bowel function and overall health.
Glucomannan – is a fiber extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac. Glucomannan will swell upon contact with water, and
takes up space in the stomach promoting a sensation of fullness, supporting a reduction of food intake, and therefore supporting healthy weight management. Glucomannan also delays stomach emptying, contributing to a feeling of satiety and reduces the absorption of fats.
Acacia Gum – Acacia gum, also known as gum arabic, is a complex polysaccharide indigestible to both humans and animals. It has been considered as a
safe dietary fiber by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since the 1970s. Clinical studies have shown that acacia gum supports a significant reduction in body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage among healthy adult women.
Guar Gum – Guar gum is derived by milling the endosperm of a legume, and contains a polysaccharide called galactomannan. It is a common additive in
foods primarily used as a thickening agent. Guar gum supports digestive health, healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels and supports healthy weight management.‡
