Jarrow Formulas Gentle Fibers provides high-quality fibers and lignans that promote cardiovascular and immune health along with good digestion and proper elimination.
The insoluble fibers (flax and chia) in Jarrow Formulas Gentle Fibers positively affect elimination by promoting increased peristalsis (wave-like motion of intestines) and bulking effects.
The soluble fibers (flaxseed, orange pulp & peel, gum Arabic, and inulin-FOS) in Jarrow Formulas Gentle Fibers promote cholesterol metabolism and cardiovascular health. These soluble fibers also promote the growth of the good bacteria (Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria), which are important in maintaining the proper pH of the digestive tract, good digestion, and immune modulation.
The lignans (from flax) in Jarrow Formulas Gentle Fibers are naturally occurring phytoestrogens that exhibit antioxidant activity and support healthy cell replication and cardiovascular function.
To best increase the intestinal friendly flora, take Gentle Fibers with Jarro-Dophilus of Bifidus Balance.
Stir 2 tablespoons vigorously into a full glass of water or juice until dispersed completely. If allowed to stand, the drink mix will thicken. Drink with plenty of water.
Flaxseed meal, defatted chia bran, orange pulp and peel, gum Arabic and inulin-FOS.

These fibers don't give gas (unlike many other products).It keeps your bowels in great working condition! I really recommend it to anyone....
They have a slight orange flavor, and mix them into my vanilla protein shake every morning. Very tasty... and does the job they are meant to do. Yay.

After trying a few fibers, this seems to be the best in terms of price and taste. I had to tolerate the taste initially but after a while, it is actually ok (and better than others). It does get thick very quickly so be prepare to down it fast. Not sure if this product is good for me yet, but it does not cause any side effects.
Works well, easy to use

Saw some complaints that it gets thick fast, well they tell you that so I put my things together in my Magic Bullet then add the Gentle Fibers last. Mix and drink, no problem. Maybe the difference is I mix it with other things. The liquid I use is generally about a 1/2 cup of OJ. I usually add a scoop of whey protein (Natural Factors). Whatever the case I like this and have no problems with it. I've never just mixed in water and drank it, that may be the key.

Most fiber products cause stomach problems for me but this truly is gentle and does help with constipation. I highly recommend it.

Best fiber supplement available. Works extremely well, tastes good and mixes with just about any juice or liquid you could want and it's gentle as the name implies.
