How does it work?
Fiber Complete 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 Fiber Plus, psyllium husk, is one of the most widely used fibers in natural bulk laxatives. The psyllium husk used in Fiber Plus is organic. In addition to psyllium, Fiber Plus 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.
It’s no secret that the modern diet often lacks the recommended amount of fiber, which is essential for maintaining optimal health. The American Dietetic Association recommends a daily fiber intake of 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men, but studies show that the average American consumes only around 15 grams per day. This deficiency can lead to a variety of health issues, such as constipation, poor digestion, weight gain, and increased risk of chronic diseases. In fact, an estimated 63 million people in the United States alone are affected by chronic constipation, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
Fiber Complete offers an easy and effective solution to bridge the fiber gap in our modern diets. Its unique blend of rice bran, psyllium husks, flaxseed, apple pectin, fig, and prune provides a range of health benefits, including improved digestion, appetite control, weight management, blood sugar regulation, cholesterol management, and gut health. By incorporating this fiber supplement into your daily routine, you can help address the dietary deficiencies that contribute to the myriad of health issues faced by millions of people. Don’t let the lack of fiber in your diet hold you back from achieving optimal health – choose this fiber supplement as your go-to solution for a happier, healthier you.

Occasional constipation affects 15-20% of the US population. It can be caused by stress, dehydration, or diet and lifestyle choices. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates in the modern diet, combined with the low presence of fiber, is linked to slowed bowel transit time and altered colonic environment. Dietary fiber, the indigestible part of plant foods, enables smooth bowel movements, prevents occasional constipation, and promotes healthy gastrointestinal (GI) microflora balance. Other effects of fiber depend on the type (soluble or insoluble).

Dietary fiber, the indigestible part of plant foods, enables smooth bowel movements.
Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. Substances found in insoluble fiber include cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. These cell walls of plants are not digested and help maintain bowel health and regularity. Foods rich in insoluble fiber include whole grains and most dark green leafy vegetables, like cabbage and cauliflower. Both types of fiber are necessary to maintain regularity and healthy bowel function. With the balanced ratio of soluble to insoluble fiber, Fiber Plus is an ideal way to achieve greater fiber intake with a balanced profile that represents a healthy diet.
The daily recommended intake (DRI) for dietary fiber varies with gender and age, but the USDA recommends 38 g per day for males ages 19-50 and 25 g per day for females ages 1950. Other health institutions recommend up to 50 g per day. The lack of adequate dietary fiber intake may lead to digestive challenges and skin concerns such as blotches and blemishes.
Several clinical trials have shown psyllium to be significantly effective as studied alongside laxatives.1 Studies have also demonstrated psyllium husk can improve overall bowel regularity.2,3 Psyllium has been found to be effective at increasing stool output and was found to improve the symptoms of occasional constipation increasing abdominal comfort and a sense of evacuation completeness, while reducing defecation effort. A randomized controlled trial found psyllium to have a significant effect among those with bowel irregularity and discomfort. After three months, symptom severity in the psyllium group was reduced by 90 points, compared with 49 in the placebo group.4 The laxative effect and gut- stimulatory effect of psyllium has been purported to be facilitated partially by muscarinic and 5-HT(4) receptor activation, which complements the laxative effect of psyllium’s fiber content.4 In addition, studies have also found that a 15 g dose of psyllium given three times per day before meals supports blood sugar and blood lipid levels already within normal levels.5,6
Flax seed has a diverse and healthy profile of omega fatty acids, including omega-3 fatty acids from ALA, omega-6 fatty acids from linoleic acid and omega-9 fatty acids from oleic acid. This blend is unique in that it contains both alpha linolenic acid and linoleic acid in generous amounts. Both alpha linolenic acid and linoleic acid are considered essential fatty acids because they are required for human health but cannot be synthesized by the body. However, changes in the modern diet over the last century have led to a decrease in the general consumption of omega-3 fats and a dramatic increase in the dietary ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. Since omega-3 fatty acids are known to benefit cardiovascular health, support a healthy brain, and are proven to maintain a healthy inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of omega-3s is important health strategy, requiring supplementation for most people.7 Flax seed provides unique health benefits and supports individuals who need to increase their omega-3 intake.
In one animal study, daily consumption of rice bran, including water soluble rice bran and rice bran fiber concentrates, resulted in significantly enhanced blood sugar balance and fasting blood sugar and lipid levels maintained in the normal range.8 The extracts of rice bran have also been found to support cardiovascular health, a balanced inflammatory response and a healthy colonic environment.9, 10
A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials showed consumption of pectin promotes healthy blood fats and maintains cholesterol levels already within a normal range.10 Liver fat concentrations have been found to be lower in rats fed diets containing apple pectin. Fecal bile acid excretion was also found to be reduced, and sterol excretion significantly increased with the addition of pectin. Rats fed pectin-rich diets also had lower levels of certain blood fats than controls.11
The phytochemical properties of Fig’s laxative effect are due to the bulk of seeds and fibers.12 In a doubleblind, randomized controlled study of 20 patients with occasional functional bowel irregularity, supplementation with fig fruit increased frequency, reduced defecation time, improved abdominal comfort and heightened a sense of complete evacuation. Fig fruit supplementation also improved the symptoms of occasional irregularity,13 and the fruit has also been shown to maintain bulk in those with loose stools.14
Prune (Prunus domestica)†
Prunes or dried prunes contain 6.1 g of dietary fiber per 100 g, as well as large amounts of phenolic compounds which may aid in their efficacy for occasional constipation and glycemic support. The phenolic compounds in prunes have been found to inhibit oxidation of certain blood fat components in vitro, and thus may protect against oxidative damage. In addition, prunes have a high concentration of potassium and have been shown to support blood pressure and cardiovascular health.15 Another study found that consumption of prunes two times a day was effective in helping with occasional constipation in 40 subjects enrolled in an eight-week study.16 Directions 3 capsules per day with at least 8 oz of liquid or as recommended by your health care professional.
