A medical food for the dietary management of irritable bowel syndrome through dietary management, acacia senegal helps relieve IBS symptoms, including diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain.
Heather's Tummy Fiber
- A medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. Acacia senegal is a natural (not synthetic) whole food soluble fiber with a clinically proven prebiotic effect.
- Studies have shown that soluble fiber, as part of the diet, helps regulate 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 for ideal bowel stability, which can reduce bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from IBS
- Heather's Tummy Fiber is unique, because it has a good gastrointestinal tolerance and a proven significantly bifidogenic effect. Heather's Tummy Fiber is formulated specifically for the dietary management of IBS and improved bowel stability
- Heather's Tummy Fiber is 100% Acacia senegal, never low grade Acacia seyal
- Start with a low dose twice daily
- Increase gradually
- Keep increasing until symptoms stabilize
Start with 1/2 level teaspoon, twice daily. Add to an empty cup, then stir with a fork as you gradually add room temperature liquid. Let rest for a minute, then stir again to completely dissolve.
Does not dissolve well in boiling hot or ice cold liquids, but once fiber is liquified you can boil or chill beverage. Or, stir into any moist food.
Gradually increase your dose. Add an extra 1/2 teaspoon every 3-5 days and keep increasing until symptoms stabilize.
Diarrhea can resolve fairly quickly as you gradually increase your dose. Constipation, if chronic and severe, may take several weeks and require a gradual increase to the higher dose range of 4-5 tablespoons per day.
Daily Dosages Adults 12 Years & Older:
On average, symptoms stabilize at a final dose range of 4 to 18 grams (2 Teaspoons to 3 tablespoons) per day total, divided into two separate doses. You may need more or less. Max daily dose is 30 grams (5 tablespoons).
Cooking: Add 1 tbsp per cup of liquid, whisk.
Baking: Add 1 tbsp per cup of flour, whisk.
Sprinkle on moist foods - OR - Add to cup, stir on liquids.

I've had IBS my whole life. I lived with it... not understanding as a child. By my 20's the attacks could no longer by excused. For the next 20yrs I let the doctors manage my symptoms...they offered some help, but mostly failed to find a solution. Frustrated, and finding the quality of my life diminishing as my aging compounded the problem, I began to read everything I could... looking for my own answers. I discovered that IBS requires numerous management tricks, depending on your individual situation. A good place to begin is with Heather's products, especially the Acacia "soluble" fiber. (Note: I prefer sprinkling in on my food, there is no taste and it mixes in just fine. For me, drinking it in water or juice can cause distress later in the day.) There is a lot of good information on Heather's website. Do yourself a favor, take her experience and adapt it to your IBS. Change the quality of your life!
This is the BEST for any tummy trouble. It has no taste, grit, and does not thicken in liquids like most fiber. It is 100% soluble, so no excess gas. I suffered from IBS and ulcerative colitis for 2 yrs. When I found this fiber and adjusted my diet, within 2 weeks I had none of my former symptoms.

This one product, more than any other, has given me a new lease on life. IBSD had me confined to the house before I found Heather's Help for IBS and ordered this fiber, along with her Peppermint Oil Caps. Together they have given me freedom to go and do without worry of needing a bathroom in a hurry. I am never without them.
A good source of prebiotics

A good source of prebiotics which i feed in very small quantities ie a teaspoon daily to my dog who suffers from intermittent colitis. Since feeding this she has only had one minor attack in a year! I believe it can be helpful to people wth this condition too.

Hi i am from India and am glad to review this product. My mother was suffering from digestion problem from last 10-15 years as i could remember and tried many medicines and doctors. Even doctors would often tell her that there is no issue. However she was struggling and could not eat properly. Last year while searching her symptoms on internet to diagnose the ailment i happened to land on Heather's Tummy care website and after reading reviews i thought of trying this product too. And i ordered one bottle of Peppermint capsule first which was able to relieve her pain in intestine and then i ordered Acacia senegal tummy fiber. Thanks to Allah, this product has benefited her a lot. Fiber has improved her digestive system to a great extent and she is no more dependent on any other type of medicine. She has gained health and feels more happy. Thanks a lot for such a wonderful product. The only challenge i face is ordering the powder from US, here in India some online websites sell the items but they cost dearly. And ordering from US adds a big amount as shipping cost. Till now i am managing to get the product with the help of my friends who often visit US and bring the product for me.
BEST fiber supplement EVER!
Posted by Reviewer3357040 on Jun 02, 2016
I've had IBS for over 14 years now, and tried MANY fiber supplements to help control my IBS. This is BY FAR the best--- if you follow the directions and start slowly, NO GAS, NO CRAMPING like other "over the counter" products. Natural and additive free, I will use as long as they make it. iHerb has good prices & shipping. HIGHLY recommend.
Great Product - Much better alternative to Psyllium
Posted by 5579789213982681664 on May 21, 2016
Started using because of candida overgrowth. It is a great alternative to Psyllium because it is a fiber which is also a prebiotic. Anyone who is looking to get heal their leaky gut or have IBS, diarrhea, constipation, gas etc. and wants to become regular definitely will find this helpful. Cons is that it is hard to dissolve in water so take time to dissolve in the water but overall it is really awesome.
