Description
BarnDad's FiberDX™
  • 11g of Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
  • 44% of daily requirement*
  • 7g of ProteinNo bloating or negative side effects*
RESEARCH HAS SHOWN HIGH FIBER AND HIGH PROTEIN DIETS CAN
  • Enhance weight management and promote calorie control*
  • Feel fuller longer*
  • Promote healthy cholesterol, A1C and blood glucose levels*
BarnDad's FiberDX™ is a 100% natural, time-release, soluble and insoluble fiber matrix that naturally reduces hunger and supports healthy weight management, lean muscle and a healthy digestive system. Originally developed in Germany, where it was used to successfully treat diabetic and obese patients, BarnDad's FiberDX™ reduces hunger and slows the digestion and absorption of sugars and carbohydrates. This helps reduce insulin spikes and allows glucose to be metabolized more effectively.

BarnDad's FiberDX™ also supports heart health. It's long been clinically proven that a diet high in fiber helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides, which has a positive impact on the body's mechanisms for regulating healthy cholesterol production. Health experts recommend a healthy diet include a minimum of 25 grams or more of fiber per day. One serving of BarnDad's FiberDX™ provides 11 grams of Fiber, a full 44 PERCENT of your daily fiber requirement.

While many single fiber products or supplements (imbalanced blends) often cause bloating, BarnDad's FiberDX™ patent-pending, eight-layer fiber matrix works in days to provide consumers all the benefits of a high fiber diet without the negative side effects.

BarnDad's FiberDX™ is a flavorless, universal ingredient that easily mixes with water or other beverages and can also be used in baking as a flour substitute, resulting in healthy and delicious meals, snacks and desserts. BarnDad's FiberDX™ is the ultimate fiber supplement for optimum health, peak performance and vitality at any age.

Health Notes

Fiber

Fiber
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Talk to your doctor
Taking fiber supplements may help to stabilize your blood sugar.(more)
Type 1 Diabetes
Dose: 30 grams daily
Taking fiber supplements may help to stabilize your blood sugar.(more)
Diverticular Disease
Dose: 20 grams daily, plus extra fluids
A fiber supplement may improve constipation related to diverticular disease.(more)
Diarrhea
Dose: Adults: 20 grams daily soluable fiber; for young children: 6.5 grams daily soy fiber
While fiber from dietary or herbal sources is often useful for constipation, it may also play a role in alleviating diarrhea.(more)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Supplementing with fiber may help you find the right balance of regularity without episodes of diarrhea.(more)
Obesity
Dose: 5 to 7 grams daily
Several trials have shown that fiber supplementation from a variety of sources accelerated weight loss in people who were following a low-calorie diet.(more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Talk to your doctorHigh-fiber supplements, such as psyllium,1 guar gum (found in cluster beans),2 pectin (from fruit),3 oat bran,4 and glucomannan,5, 6 have improved glucose tolerance in some studies. Positive results have also been reported with the consumption of 1 to 3 ounces of powdered fenugreek seeds per day.7, 8 A review of the research revealed that the extent to which moderate amounts of fiber help people with diabetes in the long term is still unknown, and the lack of many long-term studies has led some researchers to question the importance of fiber in improving diabetes.9 Nonetheless, most doctors advise people with diabetes to eat a diet high in fiber. Focus should be placed on fruits, vegetables, seeds, oats, and whole-grain products.

Type 1 Diabetes
Dose: 30 grams daily When taken with meals, high-fiber supplements such as guar gum reduced the rise in blood sugar following meals in people with type 1 diabetes.1, 2 More research is needed to determine if regular use of fiber supplements benefits long-term blood sugar control in type 1 diabetes.

Diverticular Disease
Dose: 20 grams daily, plus extra fluids

In people with diverticular disease, a fiber supplement may improve constipation. The results of double-blind of fiber supplementation for diverticular disease have been mixed. One study1 demonstrated a beneficial effect of fiber supplementation in people who suffered from abdominal pain and pain with bowel movements; whereas a second study2 indicated no improvement in these symptoms following fiber supplementation. Nevertheless, long-term fiber supplementation may protect against the complications of diverticular disease.3

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructionsLimited research has suggested that fiber might help people with IBS.1, 2 However, most studies find that IBS sufferers do not benefit by adding wheat bran to their diets,3, 4, 5, 6 and some people feel worse as a result of wheat bran supplementation.7 The lack of positive response to wheat bran may result from a wheat sensitivity,8 which is one of the most common triggers for food sensitivity in people with IBS.9 Rye, brown rice, oatmeal, barley, vegetables, and psyllium husks are good sources of fiber and are less likely to trigger food sensitivities than is wheat bran. Except for psyllium, little is known about the effect of these other fibers in people with IBS.

Obesity
Dose: 5 to 7 grams dailyFiber supplements are one way to add fiber to a weight-loss diet. Several trials have shown that supplementation with fiber from a variety of sources accelerated weight loss in people who were following a low-calorie diet.1, 2, 3, 4 Other researchers found, however, that fiber supplements had no effect on body weight, even though they resulted in a reduction in food intake.5

      Comments about BarnDad Innovative Nutrition BarnDad's Fiber DX:

      I've been using Barndad UltraFiberDX and Green Coffee with Probiotics for a year now. Often times, I simply mix the fiber with my protein shake or morning oatmeal, but the recipes on the website also let me indulge my sweet tooth! I'm not a professional bodybuilder, but I'm an avid strength trainer for health reasons. At 43, I find it much harder to lose body fat than I did when I exercised regularly in my 20s. These products help me feel full and, in conjunction with a healthy diet and protein supplements, I'm finding I'm reaching my goals more easily! I've lost weight and I'm keeping it off, even when my job leaves me too busy to hit the gym. I'm very regular without bloating/gas or any of the side effects normally found with fiber supplements. Most of all, I've had a problem for several years with my "good" cholesterol being too low and I suffered from constant colds/sinus infections. Since I started using UltraFiberDX cholesterol levels are so amazing my family doctor has started using the products and I have only had one minor cold that cleared up in a matter of days! I love these products and highly recommend them to everyone!

          I felt compelled to mention my good experience since this product became available. Nothing I've ever found provides the level of fiber without gassiness and improved level of elimination. Your system will be quite regular with the benefit of a much flatter stomach. Simply adding this product to my regular diet has benefitted me with a lower LDL profile over the last year (2 separate tests)

                I'm trying to lose weight and this definitely works well! I have been losing 1lb every week so far. I'm very irregular and this helps a lot. I mix it with unsweetened almond milk (Almond Milk brand 30cals)and a packet of Truvia (stevia). I drink it every morning as a breakfast and as a snack 1-2 times a day. Some mix it with anything i.e. fruits & veggies but that doesn't taste good to me. I enjoy it with almond milk. Sometimes I mix it with some Swiss Miss Diet chocolate mix (25 cal) if I'm craving some something chocolatey. It made me regular and I've been losing weight.

                  I have never taken fiber before as a supplement but when I tried the Barn Dad Fiber, I was surprised at how easy it was to blend into my regular protein shakes in the morning. You can take the fiber by itself or mix it into your protein or bake with it-having little to no flavor makes it an easy match for almost anything. When I took it in the morning with my protein I noticed I was full longer and felt like I had more energy. Definitely a good purchase!

                    Comments about BarnDad Innovative Nutrition BarnDad's Fiber DX:

                    Ultra Fiber DX helps me stay fuller longer. It's completely tasteless and disolves easily into anything I mix it with. I usually add it to protein shakes and it keeps me full hours longer than without it. Love this!
