Sunfiber® (partially hydrolyzed guar gum)... 4 g... 16%
What Is It?
AOR's Solufibre contains Sunfiber®, a partially hydrolyzed guar gum, a 100% soluble fibre derived from the bean of the guar plant. Partially hydrolyzed guar gum is digestion resistant, taste-free and does not alter the texture of the food or drink it is added to, making it easy to take. It is also one of the best-tolerated forms of fibre. Solufibre is patented and clinically studied, with the results yielding some of the most wide-ranging benefits attributable to any fibre.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: The primary purpose of fibre is to support digestion, maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract and maintain bowel regularity. Sunfiber® has been shown to help relieve both constipation and diarrhea and promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal flora. Sunfiber® has been shown to reduce intestinal inflammation and abdominal pain. Of the dozen clinical studies involving Sunfiber®, many of them were conducted on children yielding beneficial results.
Secondary Uses: Solufibre is one of few fibres clinically shown to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar. Soluble fibres are also often used to support weight management since fibre increases the feeling of fullness.
Who Should Take It?
Those suffering from constipation or diarrhea or other gastrointestinal disturbances may find Solufibre helpful. Solufibre can also act as a metabolic support for those with high blood sugar, high cholesterol or who are overweight.
