What's your (fiber) type? Insoluble vs. soluble fibers

  • 1 min read

What's your (fiber) type?
The difference between soluble fiber and insoluble fiber is that soluble fiber dissolves in water and insoluble fiber does NOT dissolve in water.

Confused?
Soluble fiber + Water = Fiber becomes gel-like mush.
Insoluble fiber + Water = Fiber does not change.

So what's this gel about?
It's pretty powerful. Think of this amazing fiber gel as a cleanser for your gut. This gel latches on to things like cholesterol particles and takes them out of your system. 

What about "no change" insoluble fiber?
Since insoluble fiber doesn't dissolve in water, this fiber hangs out in your digestive tract absorbing fluids and picking up other digestion byproducts that bulk up your stool. This beefed-up fiber also acts like a broom in your gut, speeding up the movement of waste and sweeping away the toxins. This is the type of fiber you want if constipated.

Health Benefits
Both fibers can help you feel fuller longer, improve bathroom breaks and have been associated with lowering your risk of disease.

Key Takeaway
Your type is both. You want soluble and insoluble fibers in your life. Bonny’s formulation contains a blend of these fibers to maximize health benefits.
