ReFiber – Fiber Boost for a Healthy Lifestyle
Fiber is a dietary component that the human body is unable to digest. It has been shown to offer a wide range of health benefits, including regulating blood sugar. However, it is most commonly used to support patients with constipation issues.
Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, yet nearly half of all Americans do not get the recommended amount of dietary fiber and would benefit from a fiber supplement. ReFiber is an over-the-counter product that is sold specifically at ReNue Pharmacy to help provide this extra boost of fiber.
What is Fiber?
Fiber is the part of plant foods that the body does not digest. This roughage, as it is sometimes called, travels through the digestive tract virtually undigested, clearing waste as it goes and adding bulk to the stool.
Dietary fiber is typically classified as soluble or insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and becomes a gel-like substance as it moves through the stomach to the small intestine and then the colon. Insoluble fiber on the other hand, does not dissolve in water, allowing it to keep its bulk which promotes bowel movements. Both of these types of fiber offer unique health benefits, which is why ReFiber has a balanced ratio of soluble and insoluble psyllium husk fiber.
What Are Some Benefits of ReFiber?
- Constipation – dietary fiber, especially insoluble fiber like that found in figs and prunes, can act as a natural bulking agent, which increases the size and weight of your stool while also softening it. A softer, bulky stool is easier to pass, which can help lead to more regular bowel movements.
- Blood sugar support – soluble fiber, including rice bran, may slow the absorption of sugar which may in turn improve and help regulate blood sugar levels.
What is ReFiber?
ReFiber offers the benefits of both soluble and insoluble fiber by combining products like rice bran, fig, and prune to supplement the fiber you receive from your normal diet. ReFiber comes in two convenient forms, capsules and an apple cinnamon flavored Fiber Plus powder that easily mixes with water. Three tasteless capsules provide the traditional two grams of fiber found in many over-the-counter products. ReFiber powder on the other hand, provides a total of nine grams of fiber in each scoop to promote fullness, and ensure you are getting the necessary amount of fiber each day.
