Fit 'n Fiber Peach: Product Information
AIM fit ín fiber orchard peach is everyday fiber for safe,
effective and consistent results. It provides ten grams of
dietary fiber through a unique array of synergistic herbs
as well as fiber from psyllium husk, oat, apple, acacia,
flax seed and konjac. Fiber has been proven effective for

A great companion to AIMís Herbal Fiberblend, fit
ín fiber provides a boost of flavor to one of AIMís most
effective and historic products. On its own, fit ín fiber is
a healthy and tasty way to increase your fiber intake with
only ten calories per serving.
The two varieties of fiberóinsoluble and solubleówork
together to detoxify and cleanse the body. Insoluble fiber
moves through the intestinal tract like a scrub brush, bulking
up and helping eliminate any unneeded materials. Soft,
soluble fiber, which becomes a gel when mixed with water
and digestive enzymes, prevents and reduces the absorption
of harmful substances while helping regulate blood
sugar and reduce cholesterol. It also slows down the movement
of food through the intestines which contributes to
feelings of fullness.
Fiber and a healthy weight
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that has no calories. Your
body uses fiber as an internal cleanser rather than a source
of nutrients. One notable
effect of this cleansing
is fiberís assistance with
Dietary fiber reduces
insulin secretion in
the body by slowing
the rate of nutrient
absorption following a
meal. In this way, you
feel fuller longer, your
insulin levels are well
regulated and your food
digests properly. With
high-fiber diets, insulin
sensitivity increases and,
as a result, body weight
decreases. A ten-year
study published in the
Journal of American Medical Association confirmed this effect.
Those who consumed nine or more grams of fiber per day lost
a substantial amount of weightóin some cases as much as nine
pounds moreócompared to those who consumed less fiber.
In a 2014 study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine,
researchers found that a high-fiber diet was nearly as effective
for weight loss as a calorie-restricted diet. Researchers cited
that people on a high-fiber diet often felt fuller, and because
the diet was more permissive, it was easier to stick to.
Fiber and cholesterol
There are two general types of cholesterol: high-density
lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein
(LDL) cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is commonly referred to
as bad cholesterol because it contributes to plaque that can
build up in, clog and stiffen arteries. This can lead to a condition
known as atherosclerosis which can, in turn, cause heart
disease, stroke, heart attack and worse. Soluble fiber has been
found to lower both overall and LDL cholesterol. It is believed
that fiber helps to reduce the amount of bile reabsorbed in the
intestines, causing the body to use its cholesterol reserves to
make more bile. Studies have shown that by increasing your
soluble fiber intake by 5 to 10g a day you can reduce your bad
cholesterol by around five percent.
About fit ín fiber
As stated previously, fit ín fiber can add both fiber and flavor
to Herbal Fiberblend. With a cheeky dash of zesty orchard
peach, fit ín fiber also makes a welcome addition to any AIM
smoothie. Try it with ProPeas and CoCoa LeafGreens. Youíll
find that it does not disappoint.
As a standalone product, fit Ďn fiber is made from the
finest natural ingredients and can be used as a daily fiber
supplement for overall health. A 2011 study published in
the Archives of Internal Medicine illustrates fiberís general
health benefits and why itís essential. In the ten-year study
that examined over 200,000 subjects, researchers saw that
people who had the highest amount of fiber in their diets had
a 22 percent reduced overall mortality risk when compared to
those who consumed the least.
Natural, bulk-forming psyllium has positive effects on
regularity, constipation, diarrhea and even more serious
health concerns. Once inside the intestines, psyllium swells as
it comes in contact with water, forming a bulky stool that is
easy to pass and helps the body rid itself of waste more easily.
Multiple studies have found that psyllium helps reduce
constipation, lower cholesterol and limit digestive issues. A
study published in the British Medical Journal found that
psyllium produced a 90-point reduction in the severity of
symptoms for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome,
almost double the levels of the placebo group.
Oat contributes insoluble fiber. Derived from the outermost
layer of the grain, oat fiber aids in regularity by passing
directly through the digestive system, undigested. Its insoluble
properties allow it to clean out the colon as it exits, helping
to maintain regularity and ward off constipation. Since it goes
undigested, oat fiber has no calories. AIM only uses certified,
gluten-free oat fiber
Konjac Fiber (Glucomannan)
Konjac fiberís active component is glucomannan, a soluble
dietary fiber. Research has shown that konjac fiber works
particularly well for constipation. Additionally, this ingredient
may likely be effective for the regulation of blood sugar,
appetite suppression and cholesterol control.
Used by the ancient Egyptians to treat numerous ailments,
acacia fiber is still used today as a first-class source of soluble
fiber and has a high digestive tolerance in humans. It is also
believed to have some prebiotic qualities. Paired with the
probiotic Bifidobacterium, it may relieve some symptoms of
irritable bowel syndrome (World Journal of Gastroenterology
Artichoke Leaf Extract and Dandelion Root Powder
In several scientific investigations, artichoke leaf extract
has shown promise for people who wrestle with indigestion.
As bitter herbs, these extracts may be able to help replenish
stomach acid and encourage digestive enzyme production
when stomach acid is low. Additionally, these herbs may also
be beneficial for liver and gallbladder health.
