Fiber & Wellness: #DiscoverTheNuYou
Learn how the right fiber supplement can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
Did you know that fiber plays an essential role in not only your digestive health, but also your heart, skin, blood sugar and weight management? Most people need upwards of 50 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories consumed, however, most Americans get nowhere near this amount.
While getting more fiber in your diet is ideal, it's okay to fill the fiber gap with a good fiber supplement. Taking a fiber supplement is a convenient way to increase your daily fiber intake, while helping improve your digestive health.
That's good news, but it's important to know that all fiber supplements are not created equal. There are many different types of fiber supplements, so here's what to look for.
- Soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is believed to also bind to substances, such as cholesterol and sugar, preventing or slowing their absorption into the blood, helping regulate blood sugar levels, and protecting against heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol. Soluble fiber boosts the population of good bacteria in the stomach, which is believed to be linked to improved immunity, anti-inflammatory effects, and even enhanced mood. Soluble fiber makes you feel full for longer, which some experts believe helps with weight management. Psyllium fiber, such as the kind found in NuSyllium Natural Organic Fiber Supplement, is considered a soluble fiber: One serving of NuSyllium contains 2gm of soluble fiber.
- Psyllium fiber. Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago oyata plant's seeds. It sometimes goes by the name "ispaghula" and is also known as "Desert Indianwheat." Pysllium husks come from the portion of the plant that is almost all soluble fiber -- the type of fiber that provides the majority of health beneifits. Psyllium is a natural and soluble form of fiber known to promote regularity and act as a laxative.
- Certified Organic. USDA certified organic means the contents should be 95% or more certified organic, and that it is free of synthetic additives, such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers and dyes, and must not be processed using industrial solvents. To have the seal the ingredients must also be listed on the package. NuSyllium Natural Organic Fiber is the first and only USDA certified organic psyllium fiber blend available at major retailers. In addition to the USDA certification, NuSyllium is free from preservatives, artificial flavoring and artificial coloring, is peanut- and tree-nut free and contains no trans fats.
- Easy to take. Taking a fiber supplement is good step toward a healthier lifestyle, but if you don't like it because of the taste or ease of taking, you won't keep up with it. NuSyllium comes in two versions: Natural Orange -- made with organic brown cane sugar so there is no artificial ingredients or taste. NuSyllium is also easily mixed with water or the liquid of your choice -- it's the Perfect Grind For Easy Mixing™ which refers to the NuSyllium patent-pending technology that is used in the manufacturing process to ensure a smooth mix with water or the liquid of your choice.
Try NuSyllium Organic Natural Fiber to promote and maintain digestive health, including occasional constipation and to help maintain regularity. You can use it for lowering cholesterol and promoting heart health and to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.*
NuSyllium fiber can also be used as part of a weight management program to feel less hungry between meals, likely because soluble fiber increases feelings of fullness and slows carbohydrate metabolism.
*Talk to your healthcare provider for advice if you are taking medications or control your blood sugar levels or if you are using NuSyllium as part of a cholesterol-lowering program.
