Striving toward our target fiber intake
The problem: Modern diets lack the Recommended Daily amount (RDA) of dietary fiber, which is associated with the development of serious diseases. In fact, most people ingest only 3 to 8g of fiber per day, which is largely due to the consumption of convenient but highly-processed foods. Incorporating sufficient fiber into our diet is important for many reasons. It balances water absorption in our digestive tract, ensuring regularity while avoiding both constipation and diarrhea. Beneficial gut microbes (the good bacteria) also feed on dietary fiber, in turn guarding against heart disease and helping to reduce inflammation in the body.
The solution: The health benefits associated with dietary fiber can be achieved by adding a prebiotic supplement to one's diet. MSPrebiotic® is 70% dietary fiber, providing a simple, easy solution to bridge the fiber gap-- promoting regularity, maintaining heart health, and helping to reduce inflammation.
The take-away: Every 10g scoop of MSPrebiotic® delivers 7g of dietary fiber. Since most adults require between 25 and 35g of fiber per day, that means the recommended 2 to 3 scoops of our prebiotic supplement can provide 60 – 80% of the RDA for fiber, depending on age & gender. Even a single scoop can double the fiber intake for most people!
