FiberMend by Thorne Research (330g)
FiberMend is a prebiotic fiber formula, which means it stimulates the growth of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract.* It combines Sunfiber® – a partially hydrolyzed guar gum fiber – with rice bran, larch arabinogalactan, apple pectin, and green tea phytosome in a water-soluble blend that helps maintain healthy glycemic control (i.e., healthy blood sugar levels) and promotes regularity and optimum digestive function.* FiberMend is well-tolerated – it produces little to no bloating, cramping or gas. And because it's tasteless, odorless, and dissolves readily in water, it can be easily mixed with a morning smoothie or any preferred beverage.
Prebiotic fibers are intended to produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the gut via fermentation. However, the rate that SCFAs are produced in the gut is very important, because if the fermentation occurs too rapidly (as is the case with inulin and other soluble fibers), then the result can be an excess of uncomfortable bloating and flatulence. FiberMend is different from other prebiotic fiber formulas because it contains Sunfiber. Because the fermentation process of Sunfiber is slower, it results in a higher total amount of SCFAs produced over a longer period of time, which results in less gas, bloating, and GI discomfort. FiberMend is naturally flavor-neutral, which allows it to be easily mixed in water or a preferred beverage without changing the beverage's flavor. FiberMend does not contain any sweeteners and is safe to use every day.
