San Diego viewers learn why to pack Sunfiber in their suitcase


April 9, 2015

Don’t leave home without Sunfiber. Holistic pharmacist and health author Sherry Torkos appeared on San Diego’s Fox 5 with some spring break travel essentials. Digestive issues are not uncommon when traveling, so she suggested tucking this fiber supplement into your travel bag. Gluten-free Sunfiber is truly a regulating fiber. It helps with occasional constipation or diarrhea so you can stay regular and enjoy your vacation.

Unusual food, a hectic schedule and even a different bathroom can all lead to tummy troubles that keep you from making the most of your vacation. “This is a good remedy to have if you tend to get clogging inside when you are traveling,” said Torkos of Sunfiber. “For some people, occasional constipation when they travel is an issue.” Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. Inadequate water, lack of fiber and a disruption in routine are all common causes.

A soluble fiber supplement, such as Sunfiber, may help move food through the intestines. “Sunfiber is a truly regulating fiber,” said Torkos. “It helps with both occasional constipation and diarrhea, and helps get you back on track.” Some fibers only help with constipation, but Sunfiber alleviates constipation without overly affecting stool firmness. Sunfiber is also a prebiotic, encouraging growth of helpful bacteria in the digestive tract. Prebiotic fiber is also less likely to bloating than other fiber supplements.

Sunfiber is easy to take, even when traveling. This convenient white powder can be mixed into most foods. Sunfiber also readily dissolves in many beverages including water, juice, coffee and other non-carbonated drinks. It doesn’t affect the flavor, color, odor or texture of the product to which it is added. “It’s clear,” said Torkos.

Sunfiber is made from hydrolyzed guar gum, which is a water-soluble carbohydrate derived from the guar plant seed, a commonly used additive in the food industry.
