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
