Assists healthy digestion.
Recommended Intake: It is recommended to begin by taking 4 (2x2) tablets daily, gradually increasing the amount if necessary. The daily limit is 12 tablets (3x4), do not exceed this amount. Drink plenty of water when taking fiber supplements, as they bind a large amount of water within the intestinal tract.
Dietary fibre is defined as material of plant origin which is resistant to degradation by digestive enzymes, passing essentially unchanged through the stomach and small intestine, until reaching the large intestine. Although dietary fibre is not absorbed by the body, it still plays an important role in the normal functioning of the digestive tract. Fibre content has fallen progressively throughout the 20th century, and modern diets with a high content of processed food contain much reduced or little dietary fibre. It is not just the overall level of fibre in the diet which is important, but also the relative amounts of the main types of fibre: cellulose, hemicellulose, lignan and pectin.
The components of dietary fibre have a filling effect, reducing hunger; they delay gastric emptying, and slow the absorption of food, thereby reducing post-prandial hyperglyceamia and buffering glucose intake. Dietary fibre components help maintain healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, by decreasing intestinal transit time, assisting in the removal of toxic substances and increasing beneficial micro-flora in the large intestine. Dietary fibre components also help maintain healthy blood lipid levels by binding to (and promoting excretion of) cholesterol and bile acids.
Pharma Nord, a privately owned limited company, is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of preventive dietary supplements and herbal remedies. It was founded in 1982 by the two current owners, Eli Wallin and Sven Moesgaard. The underlying idea of Pharma Nord was to compensate for the shortcomings of modern diet by means of dietary supplements with high a bio-availability and a documented effect.
The company develops, manufactures and markets scientifically well founded dietary supplements, herbal remedies and medical drugs based on optimal bio-availability, safety and documentation. Pharma Nord’s research database contains more than 8,000 scientific studies - including a large number of studies conducted with Pharma Nord’s own preparations. The database is the cornerstone of the entire product development. With its production facilities and company head quarters located in Denmark, Pharma Nord has a large operational field.
A cornerstone of Pharma Nord's philosophy is that all products must provide optimal bio-availability and physiological effect. This is only possible by making sure that both the raw materials selected and the production methods employed are adjusted to the manufacturing of superior quality. The result of this strategy is a range of products that has distinguished itself as a market leader in independent consumer tests and scientific studies. Over the years, Pharma Nord has established a comprehensive international network of scientists in areas such as cardiology, oncology, odontology, surgery, dietary technology and several others. This collaboration, and the ongoing dialogue with researchers, is an extremely important tool for the development of our products.
