Fiber has long been recognized as one of the best food macronutrients for maintaining bowel regularity and preventing constipation. Consuming fiber reduces transit time and results in a more thorough evacuation of waste. It is thought to improve all aspects of colon function.
In 2002, the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine established an adequate intake (AI) recommendation for total daily fiber intake. For adults who are 50 years of age and younger, the AI recommendation for total fiber intake is 38 grams per day for men and 25 grams per day for women. For adults over 50 years of age, the recommendation is 30 grams per day for men and 21 grams per day for women. Knowing the amount you need is a good place to start, but a study from the University of Southern California found that more than 90 percent of Americans do not get the recommended fiber amount. Additionally, the 2010 Dietary Guideline for Americans listed fiber as a nutrient of concern.
Water-soluble fiber dissolves in water and is found in oat bran, legumes, psyllium, nuts, beans, pectins and various fruits and vegetables. It forms a bulky gel in the intestine that regulates the flow of waste material through the digestive tract.
Water-soluble fiber prevents the reabsorption of bile acids, which are made from cholesterol. After bile acids aid with fat digestion, they bind to fiber and are eliminated from the body. The liver then has to extract more cholesterol from the blood.
Water-soluble fiber also slows the absorption of carbohydrates into the blood. Researchers have found that increasing fiber intake results in decreasing the body’s need for insulin.
Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water, meaning the body cannot digest it. This type of fiber includes the indigestible parts of plant walls, and vegetables contain the greatest amount. The primary function of insoluble fiber is to absorb water, increasing stool bulk in the large intestine. This promotes bowel movements, and as the bulk moves through the intestine, it scours the intestinal walls of waste matter.
Cleansing, Detoxifying and Herbs
The concept of body cleansing has been with us for centuries. Health practitioners recognize the importance of keeping the body in balance: homeostasis. Internal cleansing and detoxifying contribute to this harmony. Many health practitioners believe that as our world becomes increasingly polluted with toxins found in the environment and in the food we eat, detoxifying becomes even more important. A body overloaded with toxins can experience a number of symptoms, including constipation, abdominal bloating, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain, excessive mucus, poor concentration, headaches, poor skin, poor memory, body odor and bad breath.

You may notice more regular bowel movements and more complete evacuation of waste. As the fiber and herbs “clean” your system, you may notice common detoxification symptoms.
Can Herbal Fiberblend be habit-forming?
No. None of the constituents of Herbal Fiberblend are habit-forming. However, if you stop taking it, you will need to replace the fiber by eating more natural fibers because your body will have grown accustomed to the amount of bulking fiber in AIM Herbal Fiberblend. If you do not replace it, you may experience some constipation or irregularity as your body adjusts.
