Right now, as I sit here coughing up the Blissdom Bronchitis, all I can think about is all the chances I probably had at preventing this stupid infection. I *should* have been taking Fiber Choice supplements like my doctor recommends, because of all the great benefits it provides.
FiberChoice® Chewable Fiber Supplement is a simple, convenient, natural fiber that provides the regular benefits of fiber, while also helping to support the immune system (did you know that the majority of your immune system is actually located in your colon? Yeah. I didn’t either until I got C Diff), digestive tract, and overall health.
Most people need 25 to 30 grams of dietary fiber each day, but most of us get only 12 to 15 grams a day. Which is a sad pill to swallow. Har. Har. But in all seriousness, I’ve learned the importance of digestive health the hard way, and by taking FiberChoice, I’ve noticed a serious change in the way that I feel (inside and out).
The main ingredient in FiberChoice® (I totally knew you were going to ask) tablets is inulin, the same healthy fiber found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. Inulin is “prebiotic,” which means it nourishes the friendly, “good” bacteria in the digestive system-long story short- it’s not a pro-biotic. It works with your already-there “good” bacteria.
Our digestive system performs a constant “balancing act” between good, healthy bacteria and unhealthy bacteria. When the levels of bacteria are balanced, the body functions well. However, stress, poor diet and certain medications (like antibiotics unfortunately as I have found) can disrupt this balance, allowing bad bacteria to multiply. Good bacteria help to keep the number of unhealthy bacteria in check. And if the balance gets out of whack, there are serious and dangerous consequences.
The prebiotics in FiberChoice® help probiotics grow and thrive to maintain a healthy, balanced digestive system and promote full-body health. FiberChoice® can be used along with foods or supplements containing probiotics, like Activia, as part of your daily health routine- so don’t worry about getting too much fiber with your choices. Of course, talking to your doctor never hurts either.
FiberChoice® is available in four formulas: FiberChoice® original formula; FiberChoice® Weight Management; FiberChoice® Plus Calcium, and FiberChoice® Plus Antioxidants. FiberChoice® flavor varieties include orange, pomegranate (YUM), assorted berries, strawberry, sugar-free orange medley, and sugar-free assorted fruit (green apple, grape and strawberry). It’s also available in 10, 90 and 220-count bottles, ranging in price from $2.49 to $19.99. You can find them at your local grocery, drug and discount stores.
