BarnDad’s FiberDX® is unlike any other fiber products on the market. While most fiber products on the market today contain just soluble fiber, BarnDad’s products take nutrition to the next level with an 8-layer fiber matrix of soluble and insoluble fiber, making it easier to get what you need every day. But, what exactly is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Soluble fiber is the main ingredient in most of the current fiber products on the market. When mixed into a liquid, soluble fiber will dissolve and swell, becoming a gel-like substance. Soluble fiber attracts water in the system and slows the digestion process, delaying the emptying of the stomach and preventing overeating by making you feel fuller longer. Soluble fiber also assists in weight management by making fats and sugars “less available” for absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Soluble fiber reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, helping to prevent heart disease. For individuals who have diabetes, soluble fiber reduces insulin spikes and aids in controlling blood sugar levels, providing the “fuel” necessary for proper cellular function and creating consistent energy throughout the day.
Insoluble fiber is the fiber that has gotten a bad reputation for all the wrong reasons. When mixed into a liquid, insoluble fiber does not dissolve. It is the “gut healthy” fiber that gives your body a “cleansing effect” by assisting waste to pass through the gastrointestinal tract and keeping you regular. Adding bulk to the stool and preventing constipation may provide relief for those who suffer from conditions such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and diverticulitis. In addition, speeding up the movement of food and waste through the intestines provides less time for toxins to be absorbed into the system.
