Essential Fiber is a natural fiber supplement containing a balanced ratio of soluble to insoluble fiber to help with occasional constipation and maintain long-term bowel regularity. The main ingredient in Essential Fiber, psyllium husk, is one of the most widely used fibers in natural bulk laxatives. The psyllium husk used in Essential Fiber is 100% organic and free of the contaminants often found in other sources of psyllium. In addition to psyllium, Essential Fiber includes flax seed for its balance of soluble and insoluble fiber, rice bran for its glycemic balancing effects and pectin, a soluble fiber found in apples. Fig fruit and prune are also included because they contain natural compounds which act as mild colonic stimulants to relieve symptoms of occasional constipation. A three-capsule serving of Essential Fiber includes 2 g of fiber and offers a great alternative for those who prefer not to consume fiber in liquid form.
