As dietary fiber goes up the risk of Metabolic Syndrome goes down!
The greater our dietary fiber intake is, the more we reduce the risk for Type 2 Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, weight gain, obesity and diverticular disease as well as constipation (Grooms, 2013).
The average American intake is about ½ of what it should be with the guidelines for dietary fiber from the American Heart Association and the Institute of Medicine being at 30g/day (King, 2013).
Two BioImmersion Therapeutic Foods help to increase your dietary fiber:

We have developed our products based on scientific research and/or the practical experience of many healthcare practitioners. There is a growing body of literature on food based nutrition and supplements and their application in support of our health. Please use our products under the advisement of your doctor.
Here’s to our health:
Take one heaping tablespoons of the Beta Glucan daily and two–three heaping tablespoons of the Energy Sustain at least three times a week. Combine the two and make a smoothie as a meal replacement. With this kind of dosing you will be adding around 10 grams of fiber. And other wonderful life enhancing
nutrients (see the links above and below).
To make a great smoothie, add to the Beta Glucan and Energy Sustain some fresh fruit, protein powder, and flax seed. We can easily get to 20 grams with the added fiber.
