Video: What makes it so special compared to many other Fibers?

Prebiotic fibers are key nutritional components that the beneficial/good gut bacteria need. A lack of these fibers can decrease the amount of beneficial/good bacteria, and, as a consequence, increase the risks to become ill.
For instance, it has been shown in several human clinical studies that there is a clear correlation between low prebiotic fiber intake and the risk for so called life style diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain forms of cancer and also depression.
There are basically three things that make WholeFiber special.
- WholeFiber is a dried vegetable. It is minimally processed and it consists of small particles of 100% pure chicory root.
- WholeFiber by itself contains 4 prebiotic fibers, which are good for gut microbiome (the collection of bacteria that live in our gut). These fibers are called inulin, pectin, hemicellulose and cellulose.
- Due to its natural structure, the fibers in WholeFiber are slowly and gradually released to be fermented. This is the most unique feature of WholeFiber.
It means that when the WholeFiber is entering the large intestine (the place where most of the gut microbes are living), there will be fibers for the bacteria that live in at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the large intestine.
