Why You Need Fiber

Why You Need Fiber

Want to lose weight? How about lower your blood sugar? When it comes to almost anything related to gaining better health, fiber is your best friend! Dr. Mark Hyman, MD says, "Fiber is a powerful substance that can promote weight loss; lower glucose, triglycerides, and cholesterol; reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; and reduce inflammation (not to mention help cure constipation and irritable bowel syndrome or spastic colon)." How does it work? Fiber soaks up fat and sugar in the gut, slowing the digestive process. This makes the body work harder to digest, using more metabolic effort, helping you to lose weight among other health benefits. "Think about the difference between eating an apple and drinking apple juice," says Dr. Hyman. "They contain the same basic nutrients, but the apple, in its whole, high-fiber form, requires more breakdown time.

A high-fiber diet lowers the glycemic load of any meal and thus helps to improve metabolism." A high metabolism and the potential to lose weight are just the beginning. The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) has found that fiber works with friendly flora in your gut to activate a receptor that can kill cancer! Good colon health is not a new concept; decades ago, Bernard Jenson, DC said, "death begins in the colon." Specifically, if toxins remain in the colon too long, they begin to cause problems. That's why it's so important to have regular bowel function. A plant-based diet like the Hallelujah Diet is great for getting fiber, but for optimal bowel function requires a bit of a boost for most people, and flax seed is a wonderful place to start. Flax seed, when ground, provides a fantastic source of both insoluble and soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber from flax holds water and increases bulk, which helps to maintain optimal bowel function to help you lose weight. Soluble fiber also helps absorb cholesterol, which keeps it from being reabsorbed from the intestine. It also keeps beneficial colon bacteria in balance, and keeps the colon in good working order. Flax seed itself is arguably the best fiber supplement, but what if you could get several supplements along with your flax seed, all rolled into one, easy-to-take, once-a-day mix? That's exactly the thinking behind B-Flax-D, the best fiber supplement out there!

One daily serving of B-Flax-D is all you need to maintain excellent bowel function to help you lose weight and to promote a healthy heart and bones after an initial three months of taking the Hallelujah Acres Fiber Cleanse product. B-Flax-D is made of stabilized ground flax seed (stabilied means the oils in the seed won't go rancid like other pre-ground flax seed products can). Plus, we threw in some common supplements that are recommended on the Hallelujah Diet, such as vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin D3, selenium, vitamin K2, and more. In fact, there's as much B12 (methylcobalamin) in one serving of B-Flax-D as there is in one serving of our B12-B6-Folate supplement. And the amount of D3 is exactly what the Hallelujah Diet recommends for good health. So what do all of these nutrients do?

  • Vitamin B12 helps prevent nerve damage, aids in healthy cell formation, and helps prevent anemia.
  • Vitamin D3 helps in may different ways in the body including helping to maintain healthy blood pressure, and absorbing important minerals like calcium.
  • Selenium, a mineral with powerful anti-viral and disease-fighting properties, is an essential balancing nutrient for anyone taking iodine.
  • Vitamin K2 to maintain strong bones and prevent calcified arteries.
B-Flax-D also contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, manganese, and more!
