What is FibreLife ®? go
FibreLife is a proprietary, highly viscous soluble fiber blend from Lifestyles
that supplements the body’s dietary deficiency of fi ber.
How does FibreLife work? go
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.
What is viscosity?
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.
What are the primary benefits of FibreLife? go

- 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
What is the Glycemic Index (GI)? go
The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how certain foods affect your
blood sugar levels.
Why is the Glycemic Index (GI) important? go
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.
How does FibreLife help with the Glycemic Index? go
FibreLife helps lower the overall Glycemic Index of a meal, thus ensuring
that food is more slowly digested and blood sugar levels are regulated.

What research exists to support the benefi ts of FibreLife? go
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.
If I don’t need to lose weight, do I still need FibreLife? go
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.
What is soluble fi ber? go
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.
Why is FibreLife so potent? go
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.
What are the directions for using FibreLife? go
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.
How should I incorporate FibreLife into my lifestyle? go
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.
Can children take FibreLife? go
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.
Do I need to take FibreLife every day? go
For best results, it is essential that FibreLife be taken consistently on a
Why is drinking water so important? go
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.
How does FibreLife interact with prescription/non-prescription drugs
and other supplements? go
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.
Are there any side-eff ects when taking
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.
