As the temperature goes up, the amount of skin we show often increases, too. A healthy way to help you look your best – and get the fiber your body needs – is by taking a soluble fiber supplement. While many fiber supplements can be challenging to get down, Sunfiber is an easy-to-take fiber solution. Health author and holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos told Minneapolis’ NBC news viewers that Sunfiber may help you maintain a healthy weight, in addition to supporting your digestive health.
The average adult eats only 15 grams of fiber per day, far below the Institute of Medicine’s recommended amount of 25 to 38 grams. “Over 50 percent of us are not consuming enough fiber,” said Torkos. “As we’re getting into swimsuit season, we want to look our best – maybe shed some weight – feel better and have better digestion. Look at this product here. It’s called Sunfiber.” Sunfiber is available in many products, including GNC’s Super Fiber. It’s also available at Tomorrow’s Nutrition.
One of Sunfiber’s benefits is how seamlessly it can be added to foods and non-carbonated drinks. “I put a scoop of Sunfiber in this glass of water and stirred it up five minutes ago,” said Torkos. “As you can see, it’s clear. Most fibers thicken; this in invisible. It’s also odorless and tasteless.” Gluten-free Sunfiber can easily be added into recipes. It won’t alter the texture of foods. “I love that it’s easy to take,” said Torkos. “If you are looking for ways to curb appetite or hunger cravings, and also to support healthy blood sugar control, think fiber: soluble fiber.”
Sunfiber assists in weight control by providing a feeling of comfortable fullness, or satiety. It also helps manage blood glucose levels by manipulating the glycemic index (GI) of foods. GI ranks how rapidly your body turns carbohydrates into glucose. Studies show Sunfiber consumed with high glycemic foods helps combat increased blood glucose levels.
