The best way to receive your fiber is the way nature intended: through your diet. You can consume the recommended 25-35 grams of fiber per day, through a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. The fiber ratio of this diet would be 75% insoluble fiber to 25% soluble fiber. This is the NATURAL BALANCE nature intended. Each type of fiber is important to your health.
When you supplement your diet with a fiber supplement, the easiest way to mimic the natural balance of 75% insoluble to 25% soluble fiber is by taking a flax-based fiber. Flax provides roughly the same natural balance (approximately 65-75% insoluble to 25-35% soluble fiber). Most fiber supplements use psyllium fiber. Psyllium provides the opposite of the natural balance, approximately 20% insoluble fiber and 80% soluble fiber (that’s why it swells and gels so significantly).
Organic Bowel Cleanse™ is a deep-cleansing, yet gentle blend of organic flaxseed, organic acacia, and organic (gluten-free) oat fiber. The fiber in Organic Bowel Cleanse helps sweep the colon clean without the gas, cramping and bloating associated with many other colon cleansing formulas. Most colon cleansing formulas use significant amounts of strong herbal laxatives, whereas Organic Bowel Cleanse contains no harsh laxatives; just rhubarb, a gentle herb that adds additional bowel stimulation.
