TruFiber contains two unique sources of soluble, prebiotic fiber:
Sunfiber and Inulin.
One serving or one level scoop (11 cc) of TruFiber provides slightly more
than 14% of the recommended 25 gram Daily Value for fiber. TruFiber is
a tasteless, white powder that mixes fast and clear with no grit or thickening.
Sunfiber or PHGG is derived from seeds of the guar plant and is partially
hydrolyzed to improve solubility and reduce viscosity. It has been clinically
proven to improve regularity at levels corresponding to two servings
Inulin is isolated from roots of the chicory plant. It has a lower molecular
weight (shorter carbohydrate chains) than PHGG and provides a synergistic
FIBERASE BIFIDOGENIC ENZYMES
TruFiber contains the Fiberase complex of fiber digesting enzymes. These
enzymes are not produced in the human body but occur naturally throughout
the plant kingdom. Fiberase enzymes are called bifidogenic because
they improve the prebiotic activity of fiber present in fruits, vegetables
and whole grains resulting in enhanced stimulation of Bifidobacteria.
Fiberase enzymes are also lactogenic meaning they stimulate the growth
of various Lactobacillus probiotics (Patent Pending).
The two prebiotic fiber sources in TruFiber stimulate both Bifidobacteria
and Lactobacillus probiotics by directly providing a microbial food
source within the intestinal tract. The Fiberase enzyme complex improves
the prebiotic activity of whole foods in the diet by partially digesting
their long chain fiber residues and provides time-released microbial
nutrition. The dual action of prebiotic fiber plus Fiberase enzymes
is synergistic. For added effectiveness TruFiber can be taken with
a high potency probiotic such as Theralac.
Note: Certain prebiotics such as the fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are
not as selective for probiotics as the Sunfiber and Inulin used in TruFiber.
Excess bloating and gas can result when non-probiotic bacteria are stimulated
by products containing FOS type prebiotics.
TruFiber has been shown to improve the following conditions.
Constipation and poor elimination
Diarrhea and loose stools
Poor absorption of calcium and magnesium
Low Bifidobacteria levels in colon
Low Lactobacillus CFU in small intestine
High cholesterol and triglycerides
The most common response to taking TruFiber is
improved regularity with more uniform stool consistency and intestinal
comfort. Improvements in nutrient absorption result in enhanced energy
and a greater feeling of wellness.
