What is TruFiber®?
- TruFiber® helps restore natural elimination!
- TruFiber® has no taste, no grit and dissolves in water or juice.
- Helps to cleanse your Digestive System.
- Non-gassy, like other fiber brands.
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. Sunfiber® has been clinically proven to improve regularity at levels corresponding to two servings of TruFiber®. Sunfiber® is a registered trademark of Taiyo International, Inc.
Inulin is isolated from 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 are 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®.
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 (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 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.
