FibreBalance: Product Information

FibreBalance AIM FibreBalance was formulated to provide a supplemental source of fibre with various herbs added to further protect the gastro-intestinal (digestive) tract. Slippery elm bark, flax seed, dandelion root, beet root, marshmallow root, pumpkin seed and ginger root serve an additional purpose of protecting the intestinal walls and reducing irritation and inflammation. This is particularly desirable in the population suffering from inflammatory bowel conditions (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease). Additional benefits are provided with ginger (relieving mild gastric complaints, yet contributing to effective bowel movements and elimination). A number of the herbs in this formula provide laxative support.

Provides 12 grams of fibre in two scoops. Prevent constipation and protect intestinal wall. Reduces transit time and provides a more thorough evacuation of waste. Helps maintain digestive health. Water-soluble fibre helps maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Fibre may reduce incidences of diverticulosis, colon cancer, appendicitis, and haemorrhoids.

Beneficial for those with irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Can be used by those with Celiac disease. Excellent addition for weight loss programs.

Until recently, fibre was largely ignored by the scientific and medical communities. After all, the term fibre represents a variety of carbohydrates that are not digested, absorbed or used by the body either for fuel or for building body tissue. It was thought that if it passes through our bodies undigested, why do we need it? However, now more recent epidemiological data (study of diseases and of their control and prevention) is suggesting that a generous daily intake of fibre may promote health in many different ways. In fact, findings have been sufficiently positive that one of the Dietary Guidelines encourages increased intake of dietary fibre.

Although fibre has long been recognized as the best ingredient for maintaining bowel regularity and preventing constipation, it can lay claim to so many more health benefits. Water-soluble fibre forms a gel in the intestine and has health benefits that include cholesterol reduction and blood sugar stabilization. Water-insoluble fibre cannot be dissolved in water, and therefore, passes through our bodies undigested. It is the component responsible for scouring the intestine walls of waste matter, which helps reduce the risk of colon-related problems.

Furthermore, in the bowels, our friendly bacteria converts fibre into short chain fatty acids, which provide energy for numerous parts of the body and may even help protect against cancer.

While the recommended daily intake of fibre is 25-40 g/day, the average Canadian consumes 4.5- 11 g/day. Research has demonstrated that those with high fibre diets have lower incidences of colon cancer, appendicitis, and diverticulosis. Also, fibre is an excellent component to any weight loss program. Since fibre is undigested, it is very low in calories and provides a greater feeling of satiety without increasing caloric intake. Furthermore, the stabilization in blood sugar may curb the desire to snack.

AIM FibreBalance was formulated to provide a supplemental source of fibre with various herbs added to further protect the gastro-intestinal (digestive) tract. Slippery elm bark, flax seed, dandelion root, beet root, marshmallow root, pumpkin seed and ginger root serve an additional purpose of protecting the intestinal walls and reducing irritation and inflammation. This is particularly desirable in the population suffering from inflammatory bowel conditions (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease). Additional benefits are provided with ginger (relieving mild gastric complaints, yet contributing to effective bowel movements and elimination). A number of the herbs in this formula provide laxative support.

AIM FibreBalance uses three different sources of fibre—oat, inulin, and flax seeds. Each source has its own unique properties that help to form an exceptionally balanced fibre product. Oat is an excellent source of fibre and new research supports the non-allergenic properties of oat components. It may offer an alternative to those suffering from Celiac disease and in need of a gluten free diet. Inulin is a preferred food for the lactobacilli in the intestine and can improve the balance of friendly bacteria in the bowel. Flax seed is the richest known source of lignans, naturally occurring plant compounds that can modulate the metabolism and the use of estrogen. Lignans have numerous biological effects including protection against heart disease, osteoporosis, as well as cancer. The scientific community acknowledges the potent anti-cancer effects of lignans against hormone sensitive cancers like breast and prostate cancer.

AIM FiberBalance, in a two scoop serving, provides nearly 12 grams of fibre with 70% insoluble fibre and 30% soluble fibre—an excellent, health-promoting ratio. Scientifically, AIM FibreBalance has been formulated so that the ingredients work together to deliver health benefits. Collectively, AIM FibreBalance the ingredients are well-balanced and each individual ingredient is within its recommended dose range according to the research and available literature.
