Question: Recently I went to the doctor and she recommended a high fiber diet and suggested taking a supplement. She recommended taking "Benefiber", but recently it has been recalled. What would the next best fiber supplement be?

Hopefully, you are also eating the high fiber diet with lots of grains and fresh vegetables. That should work well to keep you regular. If you still need to supplement, there are lots of fiber supplements out there. Psyllium husk is the main ingredient in most fiber supplements like Proctor and Gamble's Metamucil and Life Force International's Intestinal Tone. Novartis' Benefiber uses wheat dextrin, which can be a problem with celiacs. Make sure you follow label directions well and drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you decide to use fiber pills or capsules, take them first thing in the morning so that you won't have to get up in the middle of the night .

Since your bowel begins to accommodate new supplements fairly rapidly, you may have to go through all of the fiber supplements that are in the drugstores and then maybe, go back to some of the older ones which may again work for you. Miralax may also help you and is newer on the market.

That is long time. Don't worry i had same situation as you, few time i had blood came out due to constipation. Since last month i go regularly. I have been drinking lot of water that is mixed with Ultimate Aloe juice. www. marketameria.com.cashop This Ultimate Aloe juice is high in fibre and vitamin will improve your bowel movement because it offer a good solution to clean your colon system. But is slow and long process in order to fully clean your colon system. This is the healthy long term method instead of something really powerful and your body can't handle the products.

Benefiber is simply a brand, there will be plenty of other brands of inulin fiber. My local grocery store has a generic copy. Really, lots of them out there....

Metamucil - but the big stores have their own store brands which are 1/2 as expensive. You can also get it without sugar. Get a couple good tablespoons of that a day. It really helps.

You need to be very careful. You are treading the line. A high fiber diet is fine, but remember too much of a good thing is always bad. The key is moderation. Misus of those suipplements can laed you stright into Anoerexia.
