What is Fiber?
Fiber is a component of plant foods that is never broken down and absorbed by the body—allowing it to perform important functions that no other food can. The two forms of fiber, soluble and insoluble, both play important roles in maintaining optimal health.
Soluble fiber dissolves in water and forms a gel-like substance during digestion. In this form it traps excess sugars, fats and cholesterol as it moves through the intestines, helping sweep them out of the body. It also plays an important role in lowering LDL cholesterol and reducing blood glucose levels after eating.
Insoluble fiber is never dissolved. Instead, it acts like a sponge, soaking up to 15 times its weight in water. Its primary benefit is to provide bulk, which can help promote feelings of fullness while also speeding up the movement of food through the digestive system, promoting regularity.
In short, fiber:

If fiber is found naturally in foods, why supplement?
The average adult only eats 15 grams of fiber per day, and with women needing 25 grams and men 38 grams, we aren’t getting enough through our diets. A single serving of FiberWise mixed with water or made into a shake, can deliciously close that gap, giving you 12 grams of beneficial fiber, with 0 grams of sugar. Its pretty impressive!
