The body does not digest fiber; instead the fiber component of food passes through the digestive system. There are two types of fiber – soluble and insoluble fiber. Much like it sounds, soluble fiber is fiber that dissolves in water and insoluble fiber is fiber that does not. The best way to get fiber is through a whole food diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds and legumes.The role fiber plays in a healthy diet became apparent at the turn of the century. Diets previously high in dietary fiber were altered to include the new “wonder foods,” refined sugar and milled flour. The increased use of these foods, which were devoid of dietary fiber, led to a theory that connected a lack of fiber and the overall state of health. Several generations later, up to 100 million Americans experience some form of occasional digestive discomfort.Super Seed was formulated to include naturally occurring soluble and insoluble fiber from carefully selected grains, seeds and legumes that are easy on the gastrointestinal system. Super Seed does NOT include psyllium husk, which provides no nutritional value.How does Super Seed support normal gut flora balance?Super Seed contains fiber components that act as prebiotics to support normal gut flora balance.Why is dietary fiber important?Vibrant health begins in the colon, and supplying your body with adequate dietary fiber every day is essential to colon function and overall health.What makes Super Seed better than other fiber supplements?Many other fiber supplements rely on insoluble fiber alone and provide very little in the way of nutrition.
