Dietary fiber is known for its ability to support and maintain intestinal regularity. Many Americans get considerably less than the optimal recommended amount of fiber from their diets. NOW Fiber-3 is a combination of fibers from certified organic Golden Flax Seed Meal, Acacia, and Inulin that can help you increase your fiber intake. Golden Flax Seed contains both soluble and insoluble fibers as well as lignans that can act as antioxidants.

Acacia is rich in soluble fiber that can help to control gas and bloating associated with high fiber intake in some individuals and Inulin acts as a prebiotic, providing food for friendly intestinal bacteria. The properties of the three fiber sources combined in NOW Fiber-3 work together to support and maintain healthy intestinal flora and regularity.

Acacia Fiber Powder is a natural, pure soluble dietary fiber produced from the gum of the Acacia tree.  Scientific studies have shown that as part of the diet, soluble fiber can help to encourage intestinal regularity.  Acacia Powder is also known to be an excellent prebiotic, as it supports healthy gut flora.  Because it actually slows fermentation and decreases gas and bloating, Acacia Powder is well tolerated.

Inulin is a fructooligosaccharide derived from Chicory Root.  As a prebiotic, Inulin stimulates the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health. By feeding and enhancing bifidobacteria in the colon, inulin has been shown to stimulate the immune system and inhibit harmful pathogens in the intestine that could otherwise harm the gut mucosa.

Studies also show that diets containing inulin reduce colon cancer risk by reducing the impact of genotoxins, and lowers triglycerides in the blood, reducing the risk of heart disease.  Flax meal is an excellent source of fiber and lignans that promote healthy digestion and regularity, heart breast and brain health.  It is also a great source if omega-3s.
