Are you getting enough fibre?

When I first found Reliv, I thought the last thing that I needed was a fibre supplement. I mean, my gut seemed to be working just fine. I certainly had a lot to learn about all the health benefits of fibre! Fibre is one amazing multi-tasker. Whether your goal is weight loss, improved digestion or heart health, fibre does it all. According to the Mayo clinic, fibre can improve cholesterol levels and may help control blood sugar levels by slowing the absorption of sugar.

But despite common knowledge of fibre’s many benefits, 95% of Americans don’t get the American Dietetic Association’s recommended 21-35 grams per day. A large number of Australians do not consume enough fibre either. On average, most Australians consume 20–25 grams of fibre daily. The Heart Foundation recommends that adults should aim to consume approximately 25–30 grams daily.

Fortunately, FibRestore® provides 10 grams of combined soluble and insoluble fibre per serving. One scoop of FibRestore is the first step in getting your digestive system on the right track.

Some other ways to increase your fibre intake include:

  • Eating breakfast cereals that contain barley, wheat or oats.
  • Switching to wholemeal or multigrain breads and brown rice.
  • Adding an extra vegetable to every evening meal.
  • Snacking on fruit, dried fruit, nuts or wholemeal crackers.

Love your gut and add FiRestore to your Reliv regimen today!
