There are two basic types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in foods such as fruits, seeds, brown rice, barley and oats. It works mainly by helping to produce a softer stool. It also chemically prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found in whole grains, vegetables, legumes and the outside of seeds. This fiber works like a sponge, absorbing many times its weight in water and swelling up inside the intestines. The result is more efficient elimination. Each 10-calorie serving provides 2 g of dietary fiber.
Nature's Three provides soluble and insoluble fiber from three different sources: Psyllium – has the highest level of soluble fiber known—more than eight times that of oat bran. Oat fiber – this wholesome source of fiber is not only rich in water-soluble fiber but also helps maintain blood-sugar and cholesterol levels already within the normal range. Apple fiber – provides insoluble fiber, responsible for a host of health benefits.
