Fiber is great—it fills you up so you’re less likely to overeat, its roughage promotes colon health, it reduces cholesterol and helps keep blood glucose in balance, which helps fight inflammation, to name several benefits of fiber.

The best sources of fiber are raw fruits and vegetables, from foods like broccoli and spinach to apples and fresh strawberries. Legumes, including black, lima and pinto beans, as well as nuts and seeds. Many grains can be a very beneficial source of fiber as well.

Tough thing is that us humans require 30-40 grams of fiber daily to maximize benefits. Is that a lot? Well, it is when you consider that the per capita intake in the U.S. on average, is 11-13 grams of fiber a day. That is why so many people in this country suffer from constipation, hemorroids, diverticulitis, colitis, Crohn’s, irritable bowel, and other diseases of the colon.

Avoid these problems and see real benefits by adding a fiber supplement to your health regimen. I recommend a supplement we carry at Herbs & More called Everybody’s Fiber. It contains insoluble fibers such as: acacia, flax powder, slipery elm, as well as the herb una de gato and other supports for the entire gastro-intestinal tract. It is not congesting as psyllium and oat powders can be, and has the added affect of soothing, coating, nourishing, as well as helping to heal damaged tissue.


Testimonial 1) ” I’ve always had bowel problems. I take Everybody’s Fiber supplement now—I just put it in my smoothie in the morning—-and everything’s fine.” Victoria

Testimonial 2)  “A memeber of my immediate family was told she wouldn’t be able to have children due to Crohn’s disease (60% of her colon was affected).  She began the fiber supplement Everybody’s Fiber as a last resort. Within six months, including a probiotic, 5% of her colon was affected. She now has a precious family as well as her greatly improved health!”. S. Miller

In addition to fiber, lots of water, particularly alkaline ionized water,  is of great importance for maintaing a healthy intestinal tract.
