Fit 'n Fiber Peach: Product InformationAIM 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 regularity, appetite control and cholesterol and weight management.
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.
FiberThe 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 weightFiber 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 weight management. 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 cholesterolThere 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 fiberAs 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.
PsylliumNatural, 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 fiberOat 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.
Acacia FiberUsed 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 2012).
Artichoke Leaf Extract and Dandelion Root PowderIn 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.
