You probably know that you're supposed to have fiber in your diet, but has anyone ever explained to you how much or even why it's important? For starters, you should know that fiber comes in two varieties: soluble and insoluble - both of which have their specific roles..
Why is soluble fiber important? Studies have shown that can help eliminate cholesterol from the intestinal tract. By controlling cholesterol levels, it helps your heart stay healthy. It also maintains good bacteria and helps your body produce healthy short-chain fatty acids within your digestive system. Yerba Prima Soluble Fiber is a very concentrated source of the valuable soluble fiber. For greatest effect, it blends fiber from multiple sources, such as fiber rich psyllium husks and oat bran.
How much should you have? The FDA and other health authorities recommend 25-35 grams per day, but the average American only gets 10-15 grams. Yerba Prima Soluble Fiber can easily and conveniently help you reach the target level of fiber for optimal health.
Soluble fiber has been shown in numerous studies to help remove excess cholesterol from the intestinal tract by binding with bile acids.

Start by taking 1 serving each day. After several days, increase to 3 servings a day. Swallow one capsule at a time. Take each serving with at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of water or other liquid. Drinking additional liquid is helpful. If minor gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount you take until your system adjusts.
Do not take capsules if you have difficulty in swallowing. A very small percentage of individuals, particularly health care providers who have been occupationally exposed to psyllium dust, may develop a sensitivity to psyllium. This sensitivity may result in an allergic reaction. If you experience a strong reaction, with difficulty in swallowing or breathing, after taking this product, seek immediate medical attention. Keep out of the reach of children.
