Douglas Laboratories Fiber-Plex Product Information

Fiber-Plex™, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a convenient dietary supplement designed to provide a unique combination of all major classes of naturally occurring dietary fiber. Fiber-Plex capsules supply a balance of soluble and insoluble, as well as fermentable and non-fermentable dietary fiber.*

Dietary fiber is defined as complex carbohydrates that are resistant to the action of digestive enzymes, and therefore pass through the intestinal tract, unabsorbed. Dietary fiber includes substances such as cellulose, hemicellulose (xylans, galactans and mannans), pectins, gums, and lignin.

Insoluble dietary fiber, such as cellulose and many hemicelluloses, are not efficiently fermented in the colon. As a result, they provide fecal bulk, bind water, and help soften stools. Soluble dietary fiber, such as pectin, many gums, and some hemicelluloses, are fermented in the colon to varying degrees. This results in lower colonic pH (acidity) and the production of short chain fatty acids, which are important for the intestinal microflora and the health of the mucosal cells. Short chain fatty acids also have a role in facilitating colonic water absorption.*

Benefits

  • Nutritional benefits for the health of the gastrointestinal tract*
