Types of fiber
There are two types of dietary fiber: soluble and insoluble. Both are important for digestive and overall health.
Once it's consumed, soluble fiber draws in water and becomes a gel, which slows digestion. It can be found in a variety of foods including oat bran, barley, and some fruits and vegetables. Insoluble fiber is found in a number of foods as well, including wheat bran, vegetables and whole grains. This type of fiber helps move food through the stomach and intestines and adds bulk to the stool, which can help keep you regular.
If you aren't getting enough fiber in your diet from food alone, fiber supplements are an easy way to increase your daily intake. Phillips'® offers soluble fiber supplements that are both convenient and great-tasting to help support overall digestive health:*
