Disadvantages: Can cause stomach pain
Due to my rather erratic and very imbalanced diet I was lacking in fibre and had a few related problems medically a number of months ago and was recommended to try a fibre substitute with this being top of the list. So, aiming to remedy the rather awkward and inconvenient problems I was having that was being blamed on a lack of fibre I bought a bottle of this with high hopes!
This is an alleged 100% natural fibre and comes in a 195gb portion which will cost around £6.50. Its basically a thin, textureless white powder with no real smell or taste. It has to be taken gradually, the final steps are three tea spoons per day but it is heavily recommended that you build this up by starting on one portion and gradually increasing that over a week to allow your body the time to get used to the intake.
The way to use this is to add it to drinks and food. The huge benefit is that its tasteless and as long as you stir it in properly your cuppa will not taste any different. Ideal! I had fears that the fibre supplement would ruin my morning cuppa but it does not at all. You could slip this into someone's cup and they would not notice its that subtle!
After a day or two using this I found I had a slight belly ache about an hour after my morning cuppa. It was quite unpleasant and I stopped taking it for a day and the aches when therefore I assume this product was the cause. I re tried the product and it was fine this time as I built up from half a tea spoon for three days then a full one for three days and so on until I was on three tea spoons. There was no more pains and aches.
The medical problem I had due to lack of fibre vanished after about a week and I felt much better about myself. My tiredness had eased and my stomach felt cleaner and more settled for sure. It's a worthwhile product and one bottle will last a number of weeks so you're looking at the £6.50 outlet a month to aid your diet and it will certainly go a long way to making you feel better. Just remember to take it easy or the stomach pains may come!
Summary: Worth checking out if you lack fibre in your diet
