Heather’s Tummy Fiber Organic Acacia Senegal is a medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Acacia senegal is a soluble fiber with a clinically proven prebiotic effect. Studies have shown that soluble fiber, as part of the diet, regulates bowel motility (alleviating both diarrhea and constipation), and relieves abdominal pain from IBS. Acacia Senegal’s prebiotic effect stimulates the growth of healthy gut flora, which in turn reduces bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from the digestive dysfunction of IBS. Best of all, Heather’s Tummy Fiber™ Supplement can be taken daily forever with no harmful side effects or risk of addiction. In fact, soluble fiber has health benefits far beyond managing IBS, as it’s been shown to lower LDL (“bad”) blood cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of heart disease, and minimize colon cancer risks. Soluble fiber also slows the absorption of fats and carbohydrates into the bloodstream, which improves glycemic control and helps prevent the formation of free radicals. In addition, it lowers insulin requirements, and is thus helpful for diabetics. Heather’s Tummy Fiber Organic Acacia is unique, because it has a good gastrointestinal tolerance and a proven significantly bifidogenic effect. Heather’s Tummy Fiber Organic Acacia contains no IBS triggers:

  • No insoluble fiber
  • No citric acid
  • No gluten
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • No artificial sweeteners
  • No GI stimulants or irritants

Clinically Studied

Clinical studies have also shown that Heather’s Tummy Fiber™ Supplement has some special benefits and advantages over other types of soluble fiber supplements. In the large intestine, Acacia Senegal fiber stimulates the development of bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria, leading to the production of large amounts of short chain fatty acids which play numerous beneficial roles in the physiology of the human body. In addition, consumption of Acacia Senegal fiber at dose levels lower than 15 grams/day caused none of the gastro-intestinal symptoms seen with other soluble fiber supplements (gas, bloating, cramps).
