Daily Fiber is uniquely designed to nutritionally support a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This exceptional formula—based on hypoallergenic rice bran fiber—addresses multiple factors that contribute to GI health, and beyond.
- Supports the Integrity of the Gut Lining*
- Increases Beneficial Gut Flora and Short-Chain Fatty Acids*
- Provides Targeted Antioxidant Protection for the GI Mucosa*
- Supports GI Immune Function*
- Helps Reduce GI Inflammation*
- Promotes Bowel Regularity*
- Supports Heart Health*
- Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar*
- Helps Reduce Appetite and Cravings*
Soluble fiber, such as rice bran, provides “bulk” to slow down digestion, increase satiety, and slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream after meals. This makes Daily Benefit Fiber a great support for natural weight loss and metabolism.*
Here’s what we love about the ingredients in Daily Benefit Fiber:
- Arabinogalactans – This prebiotic feeds healthy gut microbes, increases the short-chain fatty acids that fuel colon cells, and helps modulate the immune system.*
- Soy Lecithin – Research shows lecithin phosphatides may help protect the esophagus from acid reflux,4 while aiding cognitive function and promoting healthy cholesterol.*[5-6]
- Green Tea Extract – These antioxidants control free radicals in the GI tract, while also feeding healthy bacteria and inhibiting harmful ones.7
- Chinese Cinnamon – This variety of cinnamon is antifungal and antibacterial for a balanced microbiome,8 while supporting healthy blood glucose and cholesterol.*
- Plantain Fruit – Plantain has been shown to support the stomach lining and is associated with ulcer-healing effects.*[10-11]
- Apple Fruit Powder – Has been shown to act as an antioxidant and support a healthy inflammatory response.*
- Astaxanthin – This carotenoid is a powerful antioxidant that can support blood sugar regulation,13 while protecting the gut from oxidative stress and inflammation.*

Objective: To investigate dietary fibre intake and any potential dose-response association with coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease.
Design: Systematic review of available literature and dose-response meta-analysis of cohort studies using random effects models.
Data sources: The Cochrane Library, Medline, Medline in-process, Embase, CAB Abstracts, ISI Web of Science, BIOSIS, and hand searching.
Eligibility criteria for studies: Prospective studies reporting associations between fibre intake and coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease, with a minimum follow-up of three years and published in English between 1 January 1990 and 6 August 2013.
Results: 22 cohort study publications met inclusion criteria and reported total dietary fibre intake, fibre subtypes, or fibre from food sources and primary events of cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease. Total dietary fibre intake was inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular disease (risk ratio 0.91 per 7 g/day (95% confidence intervals 0.88 to 0.94)) and coronary heart disease (0.91 (0.87 to 0.94)). There was evidence of some heterogeneity between pooled studies for cardiovascular disease (I(2)=45% (0% to 74%)) and coronary heart disease (I(2)=33% (0% to 66%)). Insoluble fibre and fibre from cereal and vegetable sources were inversely associated with risk of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease. Fruit fibre intake was inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular disease.
Conclusions: Greater dietary fibre intake is associated with a lower risk of both cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease. Findings are aligned with general recommendations to increase fibre intake. The differing strengths of association by fibre type or source highlight the need for a better understanding of the mode of action of fibre components.
The influence of dietary fiber on energy regulation remains controversial. This review summarizes published studies on the effects of dietary fiber on hunger, satiety, energy intake, and body composition in healthy individuals. Under conditions of fixed energy intake, the majority of studies indicate that an increase in either soluble or insoluble fiber intake increases postmeal satiety and decreases subsequent hunger. When energy intake is ad libitum, mean values for published studies indicate that consumption of an additional 14 g/day fiber for >2 days is associated with a 10% decrease in energy intake and body weight loss of 1.9 kg over 3.8 months. Furthermore, obese individuals may exhibit a greater suppression of energy intake and body weight loss (mean energy intake in all studies was reduced to 82% by higher fiber intake in overweight/obese people versus 94% in lean people; body weight loss was 2.4 kg versus 0.8 kg). These amounts are very similar to the mean changes in energy intake and body weight changes observed when dietary fat content is lowered from 38% to 24% of energy intake in controlled studies of nonobese and obese subjects. The observed changes in energy intake and body weight occur both when the fiber is from naturally high-fiber foods and when it is from a fiber supplement. In view of the fact that mean dietary fiber intake in the United States is currently only 15 g/day (i.e., approximately half the American Heart Association recommendation of 25-30 g/day), efforts to increase dietary fiber in individuals consuming <25 g/day may help to decrease the currently high national prevalence of obesity.
