Acacia is harvested from the sap of the Acacia senegal tree. First documented by Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus in 1173, A. senegal produces a sticky sap known as 'gum acacia'. Typically dried and ground into a fine powder, gum acacia is highly soluble in water and is a nutritious, nonfat source of dietary fibre.
Acacia powder is high in soluble fibre, but yields little to no gastrointestinal side effects. Some soluble fibres such as inulin can cause gas and bloating for some people. Acacia fibre is also a 'prebiotic', helping to promote the colonization of healthy bacteria in your intestinal tract. Organic Clear Fibre is an effective supplement for those who have problems with diarrhea, those seeking to lower their total cholesterol levels and for those that need help controlling blood sugar levels.
Organic Clear Fibre consists of 100% organic acacia fibre. Acacia is high in soluble fibre, but yields little to no gastrointestinal side effects. Some soluble fibres, such as inulin, can cause gas and bloating and psyllium can be dehydrating. Organic Clear Fibre mixes well with liquids and soft foods (yogurt, soups, apple sauce etc), it can even be added to baking! Since it is organic and unrefined, it may clump. So for best results when mixing in liquid either use a shaker cup or a fork to stir well. As well as its properties as a fibre supplement, acacia fibre is also a 'prebiotic'. Prebiotics help promote the colonization of healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract.
Choose Organic Clear Fibre if you:
• Have elevated blood cholesterol levels. Soluble fibre, like the kind found in Organic Clear Fibre, absorbs excess cholesterol and removes it from the body.
• Are diabetic (either Type 1 or 2), because soluble fibre helps to control blood sugar by delaying emptying of the stomach. This slows the entry of glucose into the bloodstream and lessens the post-meal rise in blood sugar.
• Are doing a Liver cleanse or using herbs that stimulate the liver/gall bladder. It is important to use soluble fibre when cleansing the liver in order to bind any excess toxins and bile that may be released.
• Suffer from diarrhea. Organic Clear Fibre can help to bulk stool and ease diarrhea. However if it persists for more than 3 days, you should consult with your health care practitioner.
