FAQs

What is FiberMend?
FiberMend is a blend of plant-based, water-soluble fibers formulated to promote regularity and healthy glycemic control, to enhance nutrient absorption, and to help maintain optimum digestive function.* FiberMend combines SunFiber® – a partially hydrolyzed guar gum fiber – with rice bran, larch arabinogalactan, apple pectin, prune powder, and green tea phytosome to provide a prebiotic fiber formula that is well-tolerated and easy to use.* Because FiberMend is tasteless and odorless, and dissolves readily in water, it can be mixed easily with a morning smoothie or a preferred beverage.

What is SunFiber®?
SunFiber is a soluble dietary fiber made from hydrolyzed guar gum. It is a versatile powder that can be easily added to a wide variety of foods, beverages, and supplements. Sunfiber does not impact the flavor, color, texture, or aroma of the products to which it is added. It offers an easy way to increase fiber in the diet.

What is Guar Gum?
Guar gum is a water-soluble carbohydrate derived from the seeds of the guar plant.

What does “hydrolyzed” mean?
Hydrolyzation is a controlled, natural enzymatic process, which, in the case of FiberMend, means the guar gum has been broken down into smaller units, thus allowing it to dissolve more readily while maintaining the original fiber content. Hydrolysis also improves the digestibility of the fiber, with the end result being less gas and bloating.*

What is larch arabinogalactan?
Larch arabinogalactan, a polysaccharide powder derived from Larix occidentalis (Western larch), possesses important immune-enhancing properties and is an excellent source of fiber.*

What is green tea phytosome?
Green tea phytosome is a bioavailable complex of green tea polyphenols and phosphatidylcholine.* A study on healthy volunteers compared absorption of a single 400-mg dose of green tea polyphenols as a non-complexed standardized extract with the same extract complexed with phosphatidylcholine – Greenselect® Phytosome. Peak blood concentration of EGCG (an antioxidant) from the Greenselect Phytosome, measured over a period of six hours, was approximately double that of the non-complexed green tea extract.*

Why is there green tea in the fiber formula?
Green tea polyphenols are powerful antioxidants due to their particular flavonoid structures.* Their glutathione-sparing activity is well documented.* Green tea polyphenols also help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response.* In addition, research suggests green tea can support healthy prebiotic activity.*

What is a prebiotic fiber?
A prebiotic fiber can produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) in the gut via a fermentation process. The rate that SCFA's are produced in the body is very important. When fermentation occurs too rapidly (as is the case with inulin and other soluble fibers) the result can be an excess of uncomfortable bloating and flatulence. FiberMend is different from other prebiotic fiber formulas because it contains SunFiber®. The fermentation process of SunFiber is slower and results in a higher total amount of SCFA's produced over a longer period of time, resulting in less gas, bloating, and GI discomfort.

What flavors does FiberMend come in?
FiberMend is naturally flavor-neutral, which allows it to be easily mixed in water or a preferred beverage without changing the beverage’s flavor.

Is FiberMend sweetened?
No. FiberMend does not contain any sweeteners.

How is FiberMend supplied?
FiberMend is supplied as a powder, with 30 servings per container.

How much fiber is in a serving of FiberMend?

How much soluble fiber is in a serving of FiberMend?

What is the suggested use?

Is there anyone who should not take FiberMend?
FiberMend is generally well-tolerated and safe. However, anyone with a known allergy to any of the ingredients in the formula should not take FiberMend unless under the supervision of a health-care practitioner.

Are there any side effects from taking FiberMend?
