Trace Minerals Research, a leading provider of mineral-based supplements for nearly 40 years, will be launching Fiber 14g at the Natural Products Expo East 2008 tradeshow being held October 15-19 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, Mass. Fiber 14g is a liquid dietary supplement that provides a gluten-free, vegetarian source of soluble dietary fiber and prebiotics to promote digestive health.
On average, Americans consume less than 50% of the dietary fiber levels required for good health. Fiber 14g provides 56 percent of the daily value of dietary fiber per serving in a convenient, bio-available, great-tasting all-natural orange cream flavored liquid that requires no mixing.
“The typical American diet, compounded with a diet of processed foods and little or no fruits and vegetables, does not give way to an adequate diet of fiber,” said Scott Perkes, Managing Partner of Trace Minerals Research. “But taking Fiber 14g every day gives people more than half of their daily intake of fiber, which will really help them on their way to increased digestive health and wellness.”
The fiber content in Fiber 14g comes from soluble inulin and organic acacia fibers. Soluble fiber is a unique type of fiber that has many benefits. Soluble fiber is a natural appetite suppressant. It also absorbs fat in the digestive tract to reduce the amount of fat absorbed by the body, and can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels in conjunction with a healthy diet.
In addition to these benefits, when soluble prebiotic fibers reach the large intestine and ferment, they yield short-chain fatty acids which affect the function of many regulatory systems in the body. Prebiotic fibers boost the production of the beneficial cultures that naturally reside in the digestive tract to help support the natural, healthy bacterial balance of the intestines for good digestive health. Prebiotics also help to increase good gut flora to reduce occasional indigestion.
Fiber 14g also includes TMR’s flagship product ConcenTrace® ionic trace minerals, a proprietary ionic complex containing more than 70 essential trace minerals extracted from Utah’s Great Salt Lake. Fiber 14g has a great-tasting all natural orange cream flavor and will be available at natural and health food stores for a suggested retail price of $24.99 for a 15 ounce bottle.
