This time of year, many people are considering changing the contents of their medicine cabinets to include more natural remedies. Holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos, author of the Canadian’s Guide to Natural Medicine, recently shared some of her favorite good-for-you health solutions when she visited several northern California television stations. We were thrilled that Sunfiber was one of the products profiled by this acclaimed health specialist.
Many people suffer from digestive issues such as occasional constipation as the temperatures dip. “We’re eating more comfort foods,” Torkos explained to Good Day Sacramento and Good Day San Francisco viewers. “The digestive system may be slowing down or not working optimally. If you feel constipated it may affect how you think. It may also cause a lot of discomfort.”
Over-the-counter laxatives may not be the best choice. “Overuse of laxatives may cause lazy colon and also dehydration,” said Torkos who instead suggested boosting your daily soluble fiber intake. “This is my go-to fiber supplement,” she said. “It’s called Sunfiber.” She pointed to a glass of water that contained a scoop of clear-mixing Sunfiber. “It’s not chalky. It’s invisible. And it’s a truly regulating fiber so whether somebody has an issue with occasional constipation or diarrhea, this can help regulate their digestive system.” Regulating fibers help move food move through the body at just the right pace.
Torkos also explained that Sunfiber is ideal for children who are suffering from occasional constipation. “Mix it with their juice,” she suggested. “They’ll never know it’s in there. Or you can bake with it.” Sunfiber is an ingredient in Torkos’ high-fiber, gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Sunfiber is a natural guar fiber. It’s minimally processed. No preservatives are used or added during manufacturing. It’s non-GMO and certified organic. It’s also gluten-free, Kosher and Halal and suitable for vegetarians.
