Good Gut Feeling Fiber Complex 360 - Information

We eat too little dietary fiber!

It turns out that we Swedes are far too bad at getting enough fiber in our diet according to the Magrapporten (2019).

-2 out of 10 adults eat 500 g of fruit and vegetables every day

-9 out of 10 get too little whole grains

-7 out of 10 get too little fibre

It also appears in the same report that one in two Swedes suffers from stomach problems every week. Good Gut Feeling is a series of 3 products for a happier stomach where Fiber Complex offers an easy way to supplement your daily diet with healthy fibres.

What exactly is dietary fiber?

Fibers are the carbohydrates from the plant kingdom that are not broken down during digestion, but reach the large intestine largely unaffected. For example, fibers are abundant in vegetables, fruit, root vegetables, legumes, but also in wholegrain bread, cereals, groats, pasta and rice. Fiber has many health benefits for us humans. Food rich in dietary fibre, for example, gives a greater feeling of satiety than food low in fibre, which can reduce snacking and make it easier to maintain weight. It is also necessary to chew fiber-rich food a lot, which increases saliva production, which in turn is good for the teeth. A diet rich in fiber also reduces the risk of blood sugar fluctuations as it produces a slow rise in blood sugar, unlike fast carbohydrates.

Different types of fibers

When fibers are ingested, these pass through the stomach and small intestine largely unaffected until they end up in the large intestine where the intestinal bacteria and other microorganisms break them down into gases and short-chain fatty acids. The fact that the fibers are largely broken down (fermented) in the large intestine is positive and good for the composition and growth of the intestinal flora. See fibers as food for our good gut bacteria! Some other types of fiber are broken down to a lesser extent and instead bind to themselves water, which increases the volume of the stool and is thus good for the functioning of the intestines. Good Gut Feeling Fiber complex contains fibers from three different sources.

Psyllium husks

consists of 80-85% water-soluble and gel-forming fibers that keep the stomach in shape by contributing to regular bowel movements and counteracting a hard stomach. They also contribute to normal digestion and bowel function.

Oat fiber contributes to increasing the volume of the intestinal contents, which keeps the stomach in shape.

Beta glucans

is a specific type of fiber found in oats that lowers cholesterol levels in the blood. Elevated cholesterol levels in the blood are a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases.

Resistant starch

is a form of starch that is not broken down by the body but functions as a dietary fiber. The resistant starch in Fiber Complex comes from potatoes.
