    1. What is FibreLife ®? go to top

    FibreLife is a proprietary, highly viscous soluble fiber blend from Lifestyles that supplements the body’s dietary deficiency of fi ber.

    2. How does FibreLife work? go to top

    Once ingested with plenty of water, FibreLife forms a gel-like complex of natural fi bers. In fact, FibreLife has the greatest viscosity (gelling capacity) of any dietary fiber. This complex slows down the digestion of food, reduces the absorption of sugar and calories, and creates a sense of fullness without impacting your energy levels.

    3. What is viscosity? go to top

    Viscosity is a measure of the thickness of a liquid substance. When evaluating soluble fi ber, it is the viscosity of the gel that forms when mixed with water that provides therapeutic value.

    4. What are the primary benefits of FibreLife? go to top

    The key benefi ts of FibreLife ingredients are:

    • it can help regulate your appetite to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight
    • it can help regulate your energy levels by lowering the Glycemic Index of a meal to stabilize the release of sugars into your blood stream
    • it can help to lower your cholesterol level and eliminate body toxins

    5. What is the Glycemic Index (GI)? go to top

    The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how certain foods affect your blood sugar levels.

    6. Why is the Glycemic Index (GI) important? go to top

    High-GI foods, such as fast and processed foods, are rapidly digested and cause sharp spikes in your blood sugar levels. This can damage your health and also contribute to weight gain, as you will soon be hungry and low on energy. Conversely, low-GI foods are slowly digested, causing a gradual and sustained increase in your blood sugar level.

    7. How does FibreLife help with the Glycemic Index? go to top

    FibreLife helps lower the overall Glycemic Index of a meal, thus ensuring that food is more slowly digested and blood sugar levels are regulated.

    8. What other benefi ts can you expect from using FibreLife? go to top

    Since the ingredients in FibreLife can help you reduce and control your weight, you may experience the many related health benefi ts that come with lower body weight.

    9. What research exists to support the benefi ts of FibreLife? go to top

    There are countless clinical trials published in peer-reviewed journals that prove soluble fi ber’s varied health benefi ts. Please speak with your Distributor or visit www.lifestyles.net for more information.

    10. If I don’t need to lose weight, do I still need FibreLife? go to top

    Yes, since FibreLife helps to address the dietary defi ciency for fi ber. According to health authorities, adults should be consuming at least 30 g of fi ber each day; however, a majority of people consume less than half that amount through regular diet alone.

    11. What is soluble fi ber? go to top

    Soluble fi ber dissolves and thickens in water. Soluble fi ber is probably best known for its cholesterol-lowering eff ect. Soluble fi ber is made up of sticky substances like gums and pectin, which form a gel-like substance in the presence of liquid. Cholesterol that is stored in the blood is used to produce bile acids; and therefore, as the gel binds the cholesterol and bile acids in the small intestine, it is eliminated from our body with regular bowel movements. This action of gelling and binding is also responsible for soluble fi ber’s ability to promote a feeling of fullness.

    In contrast, insoluble fi ber is the “roughage” in our diet that helps promote a healthy digestive system.

    12. Why is FibreLife so potent? go to top

    FibreLife is a blend of naturally-occurring water-soluble fi bers that together can absorb hundreds of times their weight in water. FibreLife’s blend has a water-binding capacity that is many times greater than glucomannan alone and tenfold greater than other soluble fi bers such as psyllium, fl ax seeds, or guar gum. It’s FibreLife’s unique blend of specifi c fi bers in specifi c ratios that make FibreLife so potent. This means that smaller doses of FibreLife can have greater benefi cial health eff ects than other fi bers, as well as supporting safe, sustainable weight loss – in other words, a small amount of FibreLife is equivalent to a large of other fi bers.

    13. What are the directions for using FibreLife? go to top

    Take 1 to 2 capsules prior to each meal with 250 - 500 mL of water with each capsule, up to 3 times per day. Make sure you consume in total at least 3 L of water per day.

    14. How should I incorporate FibreLife into my lifestyle? go to top

    Whenever increasing fi ber intake, it is important to start slowly and increase as your body adjusts. Begin by taking 1 capsule daily with 250 - 500 mL of water. After a few days, take 1 capsule twice daily, each with 250 - 500 mL of water. Continue to add 1 capsule every few days until you reach the recommended dose or a dose your body is comfortable with.

    15. Can children take FibreLife? go to top

    Fiber is essential for children’s health as well. However, due to its high potency and powerful gelling capacity, it is recommended that only children 13 years of age and older take FibreLife. Thirteen is the age individuals are considered adult from a nutrition point-of-view.

    16. Do I need to take FibreLife every day? go to top

    For best results, it is essential that FibreLife be taken consistently on a daily basis.

    17. Why is drinking water so important? go to top

    Since FibreLife absorbs many times its own weight in water, not enough water will cause FibreLife to become so viscous that it is essentially a hard ball in our digestive tract. This can lead to constipation. However, with plenty of water, a nice smooth gel forms, which does the opposite – eases constipation and promotes bowel regularity.

    18. How does FibreLife interact with prescription/non-prescription drugs and other supplements? go to top

    If you take any medications and/or supplements, it is recommended that you take them at least one hour before taking FibreLife. This will help ensure that both your medication and FibreLife can work eff ectively.

    19. Are there any side-eff ects when taking FibreLife? go to top

    For normal people who are following the directions for use, there should not be any side-eff ects. However, as with any soluble fi ber product, if insuffi cient amounts of water are taken, constipation may result. Also, for those who currently lack fi ber in their diet, fi ber should be added slowly or else some gastrointestinal discomfort (such as gas and bloating) may result.
