The American Heart Association and the American Dietetic Association recommend a high-fiber diet for long-term health. Ideally, you want to get 20-35 grams of fiber EVERY day. Most Americans get only half that amount and the results are not good in terms of current health problems and future good health.
Fiber offers a number of health benefits such as digestive health, colon health, and helping you maintain regularity.
Today I would like to write about a new addition to the Shaklee Nutrition family. If you are looking to add fiber to your daily diet: Fiber Meets Flavor in the tasty new apple-cinnamon bar with 8 grams of fiber in every All-Natural, 100 calorie snack bar.
Fiber Advantage is a delicious, chewy blend of fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Apples, dates, whole grain oats and cinnamon combine for a very tasty treat that just happens to be very healthy for you.
Your digestive system will like this bar because it helps keep everything running smoothly and will work for the whole family! There is no saturated fat, it’s low in sodium, there are no artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners or colors. It is gluten free and Star-K kosher certified.
Each Fiber Advantage bar contains soluble, prebiotic fibers that promote the growth of healthy microflora, insoluble fibers to promote regularity, and a special type of fiber to support the long-term health of your colon. It’s a fantastic fiber combination. Eat up!
Let’s look how one Fiber Advantage bar stacks up to other fiber choices:
1 Fiber Advantage bar = 1/2 cup broccoli + 1/2 cup oatmeal + 1 whole apple (with skin) + 1/2 cup carrots
It’s a smart, healthy choice to have a box on hand for the days you don’t get your other fiber sources.
