Yerba Prima’s newly reformulated, sugar-free, gluten-free Orange Flavor Daily Fiber Formula uses natural stevia instead of high-calorie, sugar-based fructose. Unlike other sugar substitutes, stevia is extracted from the leaf of a plant long used as a drink sweetener in Asia.
Since stevia extract contains no calories, carbohydrates or artificial ingredients and is about 50 times sweeter than sugar, Yerba Prima’s new formulation cuts 70 percent of the calories and provides 60 percent more servings (48 instead of 30) at the same price.
For the almost one-third of consumers looking for gluten-free products, the new formulation is gluten free. Gluten, a protein found primarily in wheat, barley and rye is a health concern for both gluten-intolerant consumers, such as those with celiac disease, and those with gluten sensitivity, who may improve digestion and feel better when consuming gluten-free products.
For those not willing to sacrifice taste, the new formulation both tastes good and is good for them.
While the FDA and other health authorities recommend getting 25 to 40 grams of fiber daily for good health, most Americans consume only 10 to 15 grams of fiber each day, less than half the recommended amount. The new formulation is an easy, healthy way to help assure adequate essential dietary fiber.
Unlike typical “clear fiber” products that mostly support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon, Yerba Prima’s Orange Flavor Daily Fiber Formula contains a full range of five fiber types (cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, gums and lignin) in both essential soluble and insoluble fiber. This can help improve digestion, regularity, colon health, weight maintenance and blood sugar regulation.
Soluble fiber helps to support the population of friendly bacteria in the colon, softens stools, promotes heart and cardiovascular health, and supports the production of protective short-chain fatty acids in the colon.
Insoluble fiber helps to absorb toxins and move waste material more quickly through the colon, removes excess bile acids, increases stool bulk and supports normal, healthy intestinal tract lining.
For best results, stir one rounded teaspoon of Orange Flavor Daily Fiber Formula powder briskly into at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of water, and drink immediately one to three times a day. It is safe to be consumed daily, and it’s available in a variety of health food and vitamin stores and online.
