Occasional constipation is one of the most common digestive complaints we see in our patients. Insufficient dietary fiber can contribute to constipation by slowing down bowel transit, affecting the internal environment of the digestive tract. Adequate daily fiber supports smooth bowel movements and encourages healthy gastrointestinal microflora balance.* Unfortunately, over 90% of Americans do not consume enough fiber according to USDA targets,1 which many experts believe may even be too low.
Both soluble and insoluble fiber are necessary for healthy bowel function:
- Soluble fiber partially dissolves in water and forms a gel-like consistency in the digestive tract. This helps to slow the absorption of glucose (sugar), supporting healthy blood sugar and insulin levels.* Soluble fiber also binds cholesterol in the digestive tract, helping to keep cholesterol in a healthy range.*
- Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and comes from the cell walls of plant matter. It provides natural bulk to support healthy intestines and regularity.

We love Daily Fiber B because it combines the best natural fibers for bowel regularity and healthy metabolism into a tasty and effective formula.
The star of the show is our Organic Psyllium Husks, 100% organic and free of contaminants commonly found in other psyllium sources. A rich source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, psyllium is an effective natural way to improve the symptoms of occasional constipation, increasing abdominal comfort and evacuation completeness, while reducing defecation effort. It has even been shown to outperform other laxatives.2 In addition, clinical studies show psyllium supports a balanced gut microbiome, and can promote healthy blood sugar and blood lipid levels.
Flaxseed Flour is added to support the gentle laxative action and metabolic balancing effects of psyllium—benefits demonstrated in clinical research—while also providing omega 3 fatty acids to reduce intestinal inflammation.
Rice Bran has been shown to promote healthy blood sugar and lipid levels in individuals with diabetes, and may support cardiovascular health.* Apple Pectin is a soluble fiber derived from apples that provide the body with a wide range of benefits, including binding cholesterol in the digestive tract and supporting the elimination of toxins.
Fig (Ficus carica) and Prune (Prunus domestica) are high-fiber functional foods that also provide significant quantities of phenolic antioxidants to support health in the colon and throughout the body. Clinical studies suggest fig and prune could both be considered first-line therapies for occasional constipation, combined together in Daily Fiber B for optimal balance and efficacy.

Psyllium is a widely used treatment for constipation. It traps water in the intestine increasing stool water, easing defaecation and altering the colonic environment. We aimed to assess the impact of psyllium on faecal microbiota, whose key role in gut physiology is being increasingly recognised. We performed two randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blinded trials comparing 7 days of psyllium with a placebo (maltodextrin) in 8 healthy volunteers and 16 constipated patients respectively. We measured the patients' gastrointestnal (GI) transit, faecal water content, short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) and the stool microbiota composition. While psyllium supplement had a small but significant effect on the microbial composition of healthy adults (increasingVeillonellaand decreasingSubdoligranulum), in constipated subjects there were greater effects on the microbial composition (increasedLachnospira,Faecalibacterium,Phascolarctobacterium,VeillonellaandSutterellaand decreased unculturedCoriobacteriaandChristensenella) and alterations in the levels of acetate and propionate. We found several taxa to be associated with altered GI transit, SCFAs and faecal water content in these patients. Significant increases in three genera known to produce butyrate,Lachnospira,RoseburiaandFaecalibacterium, correlated with increased faecal water. In summary, psyllium supplementation increased stool water and this was associated with significant changes in microbiota, most marked in constipated patients.
Background: Both flaxseed and psyllium have previously been shown to reduce constipation symptoms, weight, glycemic and lipid levels, and we postulate that treatment with flaxseed and psyllium may have similar benefits.
Objective: To compare constipation symptoms, weight, glycemia, and lipids in constipated patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) who received baked flaxseed or psyllium versus those who received a placebo.
Methods: In a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial, 77 constipated patients with T2D were randomized into three groups. Patients received either 10 g flaxseed or psyllium pre-mixed in cookies or placebo cookies twice per day for a total of 12 weeks. The constipation symptoms, body mass index (BMI), fasting plasma glucose (FPG), glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), and lipid profile were determined at the beginning and end of 4, 8, and 12-week period. Constipation was assessed with the ROME III criteria score.
Results: The flaxseed appear to be superior to psyllium for improving constipation symptoms, weight, glycemic, and lipid control. The change from baseline of constipation symptoms (P = 0.002), stool consistency (P < 0.001), weight (P < 0.001), BMI (P < 0.001), FPG (P = 0.004), cholesterol (P = 0.010), LDLC (P = 0.031), and cholesterol/HDLC ratio (P = 0.019), was significantly improved in both flaxseed and psyllium groups than in the placebo group. The compliance was good and no adverse effects were observed.
Conclusion: Although both flaxseed and psyllium may decrease constipation symptoms, weight, glycemic and lipid levels, treatment with flaxseed appear to be superior to psyllium.
