TruFiber features SunFiber, Inulin, and Fiberase. Sun-Fiber and Inulin are clinically proven to improve regularity while enhancing the growth of probiotics (see trufiber.net for references). Fiberase enzymes enhance the prebiotic activity of dietary fiber to further stimulate probiotics. Each serving provides 14% of the Daily Value for fiber.
TruFiber is vegetarian; it contains no wheat, gluten, soy, rye, milk, casein, nuts, eggs, and yeast, or animal products.
As a dietary supplement, mix one (1) scoop into 8-12 ounces of water, juice, or milk. Stir or shake rapidly. Times depend on the type and temperature of the liquid. Take once or twice daily.
This product is packaged by weight, not by volume.
Settling of contents may occur.
Store in a cool dry place away from children.
May cause choking if taken with insufficient water or beverage.
If you have frequent diarrhea, are pregnant or nursing, or have a medical condition check with your physician before using.
TruFiber soluble fiber is uniquely formulated to stimulate probiotics to restore regularity fast.
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 of TruFiber (see scientific references). Sunfiber is a registered trademark of Taiyo International, Inc.
Inulin is isolated from the roots of the chicory plant. It has a lower molecular weight (shorter carbohydrate chains) than PHGG and provides a synergistic prebiotic effect.
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; they have listed above in Table #1 along with their corresponding enzymatic activity per serving. 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 (www.theralac.com).
Certain prebiotics such as the fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is 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 (see scientific references).
Constipation and poor elimination
Diarrhea and loose stools
Poor absorption of calcium and magnesium
Low Bifidobacteria levels in colon
Low Lactobacillus CFU in the small intestine
High cholesterol and triglycerides
The most common response to taking TruFiber has improved regularity with more uniform stool consistency and intestinal comfort. Improvements in nutrient absorption result in enhanced energy and a greater feeling of wellness.
