Fiber supplements do, however, offer some of the same health benefits as food-based fiber, Lupton and Sandon both said. While lacking the vitamins and minerals that come with fiber in whole foods.

“Because of that, high-fiber foods can reduce appetite and promote lasting satiety, aiding weight loss.” While fiber is naturally found in foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds, fiber supplements are popular among people with weight-loss goals. However, nutrition pros argue they aren’t as good as the real deal.

If you’re looking for a convenient, budget-friendly fiber supplement, Benefiber On-the-Go Sticks pack three grams of fiber into a slim, easy-to-use stick. Benefiber uses wheat dextrin, a soluble fiber that.

It’s unclear whether the fiber found in supplements or fortified foods gives the same health benefits as naturally occurring sources. Because of this, most fiber supplements are aimed at preventing. Fiber has a number of health benefits, including normalizing bowel function and preventing constipation. It’s best to get fiber from food, because supplements don’t provide the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that fiber-rich foods do. But fiber supplements can contribute to the recommended daily intake.

A lot of fruits, grains, and vegetables have a lot of fiber, but supplementing with a fiber supplement will ensure you improve your digestive health, reduce your cholesterol, and even help you prevent certain cancers and heart disease. While there isn’t evidence to suggest fiber supplements are harmful, it’s better to get fiber from natural sources because you also get the vitamins and minerals that the foods provide. Whether.

The best evidence for a benefit of fiber supplements comes from the studies of ispaghula (psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid; ispaghula husk).1 Wheat bran has been no better than placebo in IBS.226,227 Fiber is not helpful for pain, but it can benefit constipation and can sometimes firm up loose stools.

No one fiber supplement appears to be superior to any other and most likely a combination of different types of fibers is optimal for health.

  • Subtracting fiber from carbs is not how you get net carbs. You subtract the insoluble fibers from the carbs and half of the soluble fibers from carbs. Most fiber is around 50/50 blend of soluble and insoluble so a rule of thumb is to only subtract 75% of fiber from the carbs and that is your net carbs.

  • If you can stand the taste, prune juice does wonders for me. You can’t have too much or too little for it to work vs. be like taking the Colonoscopy prep. I drink about a cup every night and it helps me. Not habit forming either, just all natural stuff.

  • Question? Is psyllium husk a soluble or in-soluble fiber? I take ground flax and chia seeds everyday and I did purchase the Garden of life one about a month ago but they ALL give you gas! ��. What fibers can you take that don’t do this! And yes I eat plenty of fruits and veggies! �� Thanks Bobby! ( ps. I’m still pounding my chicken ��) ����

  • I Suffer from H pylori for about 7 year now I can’t eat nothing with carbs Without suffer the consequences of pain and bloating for days I do need a support group where I can go and complain

  • ive ben struggling too girl just like u ive had to go to the emergency room because of how bad my stomach hurt from not going to the bathroom for a while and i still struggle with it it truely does suck but Ill try adding even more fruits and veggies and see if that plays a roll thanks for making this vid to relate too♡♡♡♡

  • Castor Oil works in troubled times for me but its advanced ewwww yuck. Lots of water, 30 minutes of walking and generic Metamucil does it for me. Miralax when something odd keeps the cycle from happening. Its an odd problem to have in relation to folks you know who are regular like clockwork. nice vid!

  • in costco those gummies have Xylitol instead of sorbitol and how about Chapter One Fiber Gummies, with Natural Chicory Root Soluble Fiber, Certified Kosher, 60 Flavored Gummies they dont have alot of bad ingridients

  • I subscribed as I have these issues too. Since I was 20 years old. Linzess has been a miracle pill for me plus I lost like 50 pounds by exercising drinking water. But need fiber and so many fiber supplement tried Benefiber Shape and it seems to help but only took once so far it says twice a day. And it craves curbings which it does. Made me not want to eat. But with IBS and
    Me taking percocets I get it twice as bad. Linzess helps me though.

  • Bobby, can you do a review on Prebiothrive by Dr. Gundry? Looking for best pre and probiotics to help with cravings for unhealthy foods. Thanks:)

  • Metamucil stopped working for me, when I first started taking it, was working fine and now it wont do anything for me. Do you have to cycle off this stuff?

  • Hello ��. I enjoy your videos. Great content. I’m always wondering what is the best or what to look at in the ingredients. I am lookin into buying the Herbalife shakes and fiber drinks. Could you please do a review on there products before I invest? I would just like your personal point of view. I’m curious because of past stigma on there products. Thank you for sharing and thank you in advance if you do a video on HerbaLife.

  • Hi! I’m from England and have suffered the sam since I was in 20’s I’m now 50 and it’s far worse. I just like you used everything on the market nothing worked. Years of laxatives later probably left my bowel damaged. I’ve had full colonoscopy too. Got IBS real bad. I don’t see it ending now had it most of my life.

  • try anything you can to fix that because i ended up losing my colon and getting a jpouch because i couldnt go for a month at a time and my colon muscles stopped working.

  • Is there a Bobby approved iron supplement for infant. My pediatrician recommends to give my 3 months old baby iron supplement before having solid food..thanks!!

  • Sad to see someone so young with an issue like this. I’ve dealt with it quite a lot over the last 15 years due to some health issues. Mine is more related to medications that I have to take than food or IBS, but the issues are the same. Yes, I’ve gone 6 weeks before without a bowel movement and it is awful. I had a colonoscopy also, which found no physical issue. I’ve tried numerous remedies and you are correct that most of them proved useless for me. One thing that has worked for me every time I have used it is Magnesium Citrate. It can be bought over the counter in most any retail store and it is cheap. If I get backed up for a week or two this stuff frees me up, usually withing a few hours. Only thing is to be prepared to stay around a bathroom when you drink it. Anyway, it works and even with all the medicine I take for other issues and my kidney transplant my doctor says it is safe to use up to once a month. I’m not a doctor, so don’t anybody start using anything without talking to your doctor. I’m just saying this works for me. Good luck!!!

  • I take Benefiber i really like it. You mentioned monk fruit bad for gut.you recommended it other video.i just bought some but don’t want to use it if it will upset my stomach.

  • Bobby Meta-Mucil has a premium blend with these ingredients: psyillium husk, maltodextrin, citric acid, natural orange flavor stevia, paprika extract(color),, turmeric (color)…your thoughts

  • Can someone explain the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic? In other words, if I take a prebiotic, do I also need to take a probiotic as well?

  • With having a colonoscopy, I would rather have the procedure than to have that drink that they give you because at least you’re asleep doing the procedure itself. That prep drink is awful. I Know this video is dealing with something else but when you mentioned the colonoscopy, it brought back nightmares.����
