The Inside Scoop: Fiber Supplements

Muted background with 2 pouches of just better stick packs with a text overlay that reads: The Inside Scoop: Fiber Supplements

Fiber is a fundamental part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Despite its crucial role in maintaining optimal health, a staggering 97% of Americans do not consume enough fiber. This deficiency impacts digestive health, weight management, blood sugar regulation, cholesterol levels, and the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. 

Adults need about 30 grams of fiber each day, yet most consume only 5 to 10 grams. Yikes! At JUST BETTER BRANDS, we understand that while the best source of fiber is whole, unprocessed foods, it’s not always practical. 

Fiber supplements are a great way to bridge this nutritional gap. Understanding the diverse types of fiber supplements can help you choose the right one for your needs.

Bridging the Fiber Gap With Supplements

Fiber supplements come in various forms, including capsules, gummies, and powders like just better.® Prebiotic Fiber. 

Many commercial fiber supplements on the market today include a mix of various ingredients, which can complicate their effects on the body. 

While these products aim to provide the benefits of fiber, the addition of artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, and preservatives can detract from the effectiveness of the fiber. This complexity can lead to unintended side effects or interactions, particularly for people with sensitive tummies or allergies to specific additives. 

In contrast, just better.® Prebiotic Fiber offers a single-ingredient solution. Made entirely from 100% all-natural, non-GMO soluble corn fiber, just better.® delivers all the digestive benefits of fiber without ANY artificial additives or filler ingredients. 

Choosing a supplement that aligns with your body’s specific needs is important because each digestive system reacts differently to various types of fiber. It is essential to find a supplement that provides the benefits you need without causing discomfort or adverse effects. 

This personalized approach ensures optimal gut health and overall well-being, tailored to your individual health goals.

Exploring Popular Types of Fiber Supplements

Various fiber supplements are available, each with unique properties. Here’s how they compare:

Methylcellulose: Derived from cellulose, methylcellulose is a synthetic, non-fermentable (non-prebiotic) fiber that absorbs water to form a soft, bulky stool.

Wheat Dextrin: A soluble fiber, wheat dextrin is primarily used to maintain intestinal balance and promote regularity.  Those with Celiac or gluten intolerance may want to choose a gluten-free fiber supplement.

Inulin: Extracted from chicory root and other plants, inulin is a prebiotic fiber known for fostering the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Guar Gum: Sourced from guar beans, guar gum is a soluble fiber extensively used in food products and dietary supplements for its viscosity and thickening properties.

Psyllium: Psyllium fiber, derived from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds, is a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers. Soluble fiber helps to soften stool and lower cholesterol, while insoluble fiber aids in promoting regularity by adding bulk to the stool.

Beta-Glucan: This heart-healthy fiber is found naturally in oats and barley. It helps to lower cholesterol and is beneficial for heart health. Due to its gel-forming action, it can also improve glycemic control and increase satiety, which supports weight loss.
