ACACIA SENEGAL TUMMY FIBER, ORGANIC
Heather's Tummy Fiber is the only soluble fiber supplement specifically formulated for people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It's a medical food for the dietary management of IBS symptoms. Acacia senegal is a natural (not synthetic) whole food 100% soluble fiber with a clinically proven prebiotic effect. Studies have shown that soluble fiber, as part of the diet, helps regulate bowel motility (alleviating both diarrhea and constipation), and relieves abdominal pain from IBS.
Soluble fiber is key to preventing the abdominal spasms and bowel dysfunction of IBS. Soluble fiber works by regulating bowel motility from either extreme, and modulating water content in the bowel to form a stabilizing gel that relieves cramping and prevents both IBS diarrhea and constipation.
Heather's Tummy Fiber is a slowly fermenting prebiotic soluble fiber that has no FODMAPS (poorly digested short chain carbohydrates). Acacia senegal's prebiotic effect stimulates the growth of healthy gut flora for ideal bowel stability, which can reduce bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from IBS.
Heather's Tummy Fiber is unique, because it is formulated specifically for the dietary management of IBS.
Increases good gut flora - it's a prebiotic, and significantly bifidogenic.
Has excellent gastrointestinal tolerance, will not cause bloating and gas.
Slows down colonic fermentation (actively decreasing gas and bloating).
Start with 1/2 level teaspoon, twice daily. Add to an empty cup, then stir with a fork as you gradually add room temperature liquid. Let rest for a minute, then stir again to completely dissolve.
Does not dissolve well in boiling hot or ice cold liquids, but once fiber is liquified you can boil or chill beverage. Or, stir into any moist food.
Gradually increase your dose. Add an extra 1/2 teaspoon every 3-5 days and keep increasing until symptoms stabilize.
Diarrhea can resolve fairly quickly as you gradually increase your dose. Constipation, if chronic and severe, may take several weeks and require a gradual increase to the higher dose range of 4-5 tablespoons per day.
