How much fiber do I need?
The American Dietetic Association (ADA) recommends that the average adult consume 25-35 grams of dietary fiber per day. Research has shown that the average American only consumes 14 to 15 grams per day.
To reach the recommended amount of fiber, consumption of dietary fiber from foods like: plants, vegetables, legumes, fruits, and grains should be consumed in sufficient amounts. Never-the-less, a fiber supplement like FiberGI may be used when food intake is low, which is the case among inactive elderly, or as a common clinical solution.

FiberGI should NOT be taken by anyone experiencing a flare-up or acute phase of diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and/or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In fact, during these acute attacks, one should exercise a low-fiber diet.
