Dietary Fibers

Fibers are complex carbohydrates and lignin found ONLY in plants. The edible parts of plants that cannot be digested are sources of Fiber. Some are soluble in water, which form a gel like gums, pectin, and agar. Others, like cellulose, are insoluble. We need a mixture of both fibers Daily. The (R.D.A.) Recommended Daily allowance of dietary fiber by world health organizations – WHO, NIN, National cancer institute is 20 – 30g per person/ per day.

FIBER NATURAL is safe

Plain FIBER NATURAL is All-Natural. Even at 100 g a day FIBER NATURAL is safe. Recommended dose is 25g to 30g a day. Individuals with allergy to ingredients should avoid FIBER NATURAL. Manufactured under strict GMP conditions of FDA and local regulations, every batch is tested for quality and safety by independent outside agency. FIBER NATURAL does not contain any saponin or alkaloids. Traditionally, whole fenugreek seeds or the extract has been contraindicated in early pregnancy and during menstruation due to the inherent capacity of the saponins and alkaloids to induce risk of abortion and excessive bleeding. Any fenugreek fiber product that is bitter in taste indicates the residual saponin that has not been removed completely, thus increasing the possibility of adverse reaction. FIBER NATURAL is devoid of these physiologically active factors, thus making it safer for regular daily use by everyone.

FIBER NATURAL for weight-control

Constipation and irregularity are major outcomes of fiber-deficient diets. FIBER NATURAL provides bulk to the waste and decreases the colon transit time from 20-36 hrs. to 2-6 hrs. It is a gentle and safe laxative which helps reduce the risk of colo-rectal cancer and other bowel disorders often associated with low-fiber diet. This type of cancer is not common in Asia and Africa where fiber is eaten.

FIBER NATURAL for ma naging Diabetes

Incorporation of 100 g powder a day in the diet of 15 Type 2 diabetes patients significantly reduced the blood sugar level by more than 25% in 10 days. This is due to the gel forming properties of FIBER NATURAL which delays gastric emptying and increases intestinal transit time. Glucose trapped in the gel leaches out slowly over a long period. Instead of a short- lived steep rise in blood sugar level, gel-fiber gives a moderate level over a long time which helps to avoid fatigue and need for frequent eating. This also reduces need for high amounts of insulin or anti-diabetic medication in diabetics. The cycle of overeating and ypoglycemia is interrupted by FIBER NATURAL intake. Time of FIBER NATURAL intake does not seem to affect the beneficial effects on diabetes management.

Nature of Soluble Fiber and Clinical Effects

Many soluble fibers are made of galactomannans with distinct galactose (G) to mannose (M) ratio. Fenugreek soluble fiber (1G:1M), guar gum (1G:2M), and locust-bean gum (1G:4M) showed increasing viscosity. Fenugreek which had the lowest viscosity also showed maximum efficacy in lowering plasma cholesterol. This Australian study showed that even among available soluble fibers, fenugreek offers best results.

FIBER NATURAL reduces Bad Cholesterol

High cholesterol and blood sugar are common in diabetes. A diet containing 25 g of the powder (= about 12-13 g fiber) per day given to 60 individuals with diabetes type-2 and high triglycerides and VLDL & LDL cholesterol resulted in significant lowering in 4 weeks, which improved in 8 weeks and beyond as shown in figure below. The ‘good’ cholesterol HDL did not change. Similar effects were observed in Type 1 diabetes.
