Fiber can provide many daily benefits. Proper fiber intake has been shown to balance both constipation and diarrhea, promoting bowel regularity. Many doctors recommend psyllium fiber supplements to help conditions such as diverticular disease, IBS and hemorrhoids.
Many health and nutrition experts have stressed the importance of dietary fiber. According to recent USDA surveys, the average daily intake of dietary fiber by women 19 to 50 years of age is only about 12 grams. Intake by men of the same age is about 17 grams. The difference between the amounts of fiber we do consume and the amounts we should consume is called the "fiber gap." Closing the fiber gap by increasing daily fiber intake, either through diet or with supplements is recommended.
A list of popular foods and their fiber content is available at http://www.konsyl.com. Getting enough fiber solely from foods can be difficult. The National Cancer Institute's recommendations of 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day would be equivalent to consuming 8-13 apples per day.
The new single-dose packets contain 3 grams of dietary fiber. They are perfect for travel or stashing in a desk drawer. Taking a few moments to get extra fiber each day can help to close the "Fiber Gap" many people currently have in their daily diets. Konsyl Sugar-Free Orange singles (box of 30) can be ordered online at http://www.konsyl.com.
