Renew Life FibreSMART
What is FibreSmart?
FibreSMART is a unique dietary fibre supplement. It is not only a source of dietary fibre, but a complete digestive care formula.
How is it delivered?
FibreSMART is available in two forms: in a powdered supplement that can be mixed into water or juice or in a capsule form.
What does it do?
FibreSMART`s dietary fibre enhances the body`s ability to remove toxins and increases the volume of your stool. It also contains herbal ingredients to help heal the intestinal tract. It contains no psyllium, which is harsh and can be constipating.
How does it work?
There are two types of fibre:
- Insoluble fibre has a cleansing effect (like a scrub brush); removing toxins and hardened material from the intestinal wall by scraping' them off as it passes by. Insoluble fibre also works to tone the bowel by creating resistance that the muscles of the colon have to work against. This makes the colon stronger.
- Soluble fibre works by absorbing toxins (similar to a sponge); soaking up material as it passes. It is for this reason that soluble fibre is recommended to help lower blood cholesterol. Soluble fibre soaks up' cholesterol that the liver has broken-down. It is also strongly recommended to use soluble fibre when performing a cleanse, as it will absorb the toxins and will help to carry them out of the system.
Most people take dietary fibre to reduce constipation, however, most constipation is due largely to dehydration. Almost 95% of the fibre products sold today are made from psyllium fibre. Psyllium is a highly water-soluble fibre, which means that it absorbs water. This can further dehydrate the colon, making most people even more constipated. FibreSMART contains flax fibre which contains a blend of roughly 50% soluble and 50% insoluble. A blend of these two types of fibre allows FibreSMART to bind to toxins and increase elimination, without the constipating side effects created by other fibres.
How do I take it?
Powder: Take 1 scoop (7.5g) per day in the morning with 250ml (1 glass of water). May be repeated at midday and evening if required.
FibreSMART should be taken on an empty stomach away from other supplements or medications. Taking FibreSMART once or twice per day depends on your diet. It is widely recommended that you consume 30 to 40 grams of dietary fibre daily. The average person consumes between 10 to 20 grams of fibre per day through their diet, well below what is required. FibreSMART should be taken daily on an ongoing basis. It is especially important to take extra fibre during a time of cleansing.
What can I expect?
FibreSMART can create a range of noticeable effects in the body. It will increase the volume of stool you eliminate. If you are cleansing, it will help reduce the symptoms associated with detoxification (muscle aching, cold, and flu-like symptoms). It does this by binding the released toxins so they can not be reabsorbed.
