What You Should Know
Long recognized as one of the prime ingredients in the diet for relieving constipation and promoting regularity, fiber – or veggies – is often minimized by many at meal time. With so many people leading an on-the-go lifestyle, eating right has quite often gone by the wayside. So how can we make sure that we get enough fiber in our diets to promote the body’s natural ability to eliminate waste? Many have found the answer to be in fiber supplements such as AIM’s Herbal Fiberblend. And because Herbal Fiberblend combines fiber with strong laxatives and diuretics like licorice root and cascara sagrada, the detoxifying effects are increased a well. But can fiber products such as this one be beneficial in weight loss programs? Let’s learn some more…

Psyllium, which is approximately 75% dietary fiber, is the main fiber source in Herbal Fiberblend. The fourteen different herbs that make up Herbal Fiberblend also contain iron, B-complex vitamins, calcium, vitamin C, and potassium. Nutritionists recommend that most people consume 21 – 35 grams of fiber per day, with some diabetics needing as much as 50 grams per day. Herbal Fiberblend provides approximately 12 – 13 grams of fiber per two tablespoons.
The bulking power of the combination of herbs has produced some pretty amazing (and graphic in description) results when acting as a colon cleanse. Many who have used this product were getting results usually found only after doing a seven day fast with daily colon irrigations and experiencing 3 or more bowel movements per day.
Because fiber is low in calories, you can consume more of it and have a feeling of fullness. Consequently, you may find yourself eating less, making it beneficial in weight-loss programs.

High fiber diets are not good for everyone, especially those with colon disease. If this is your situation, make sure to check with your physician before starting a high fiber diet or fiber supplement. For some, colon cleanses can be difficult on the stomach. Make sure you are in a position that 3 or more bowel movements during the day will not interfere with your daily activities or your work schedule. Colon cleanses and fiber supplements should not be construed as weight management supplements. Once you have used a product like Herbal Fiberblend, it is best to stay on a healthy eating regiment with proper fiber intake to keep your system operating at its optimum. Mix in balanced exercise for a well rounded program for weight management.
