Clinical Applications
  • Promotes bowel movements by increasing bulk volume and water content
  • Provides gentle relief of constipation and/or irregularity

Recommended Use of Fiber Plus Powder

Adults: Mix 1 scoop briskly (14.83 g) in 270 mL of water or juice and drink immediately 1-2 times daily. Maintain adequate fluid intake. Take 2 hours before or after taking other medications. Laxative effects observed 12-24 hours after first dose, and may take 2-3 days or ask your PCP before taking it..

Soluble Fiber

Soluble fiber (viscous fiber) partially dissolves in water and forms a gel in the gastrointestinal tract. It promotes bowel movements by increasing bulk volume and water content.

Insoluble Fiber

Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. Substances found in insoluble fiber include cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. These cell walls of plants are not digested and help maintain bowel health and regularity.

Both types of fiber are necessary to maintain regularity and healthy bowel function. With the balanced ratio of soluble to insoluble fiber, Fiber Plus is an ideal way to achieve greater fiber intake with a balanced nutritional profile.

Fiber Depletion

The daily recommended intake (DRI) for dietary fiber varies with gender and age, but Health Canada’s reference standard is 28 g. Other health institutions recommend up to 50 g per day.

Husks and Seeds

Psyllium has been found to be effective at increasing stool output and was found to improve the symptoms of occasional constipation increasing abdominal comfort and a sense of evacuation completeness, while reducing defecation effort. The laxative effect and gut- stimulatory effect of psyllium has been purported to be facilitated partially by muscarinic and 5-HT(4) receptor activation, which complements the laxative effect of psyllium’s fiber content.

Formulations That Work

Evidence-Based

All Ortho Molecular Products are evidence-based. The most reliable evidence comes in the form of well-controlled human clinical trials, in populations demographically similar to our doctors’ patients, published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. This is the standard we are aiming for when we consider which ingredients to include in our formulas. However, we also honor the historical data of thousands of years of traditional use, as well as the direct observations of health care practitioners in clinical practice.

Raw Material Superiority

Equally important as which ingredients to include is which forms of ingredients to choose. After all, there can be tremendous variation in two ingredients both called CoQ10. At Ortho Molecular Products, we hold ourselves to a standard of raw material quality seldom seen in the supplement industry, and it starts with asking the right questions. For example, when evaluating a raw material, most companies’ first question is: How much does it cost? We ask: Does the ingredient match the specifications used in clinical studies? Is it bioavailable? Has it been tested for safety? What is its country of origin? Was it manufactured in a controlled facility? Simply stated, we do not use inferior raw materials. Ever.

Therapeutic Potency

Of course, even if you have chosen evidence-based ingredients and provided them in a superior form, the formula will not work if the dosages are too small. That’s why Ortho Molecular Products always include the right therapeutic dosing of each ingredient, based on established research. This approach is what separates good supplements from great supplements — formulas that truly help your patients get better faster. It is what drives efficacy and the reason we always formulate to the power of e.
