First, look at you home chef. (You go Glen Coco!) Yes, Bonny is safe to add to your favorite cool beverage. Chocolate Hazelnut Dream is particularly amazing in baked goods and blended drinks. Our extremely unflavored mixes without a trace, if you don’t want the extra flavor.

Bonny can be taken every day, up to three times per day as a dietary fiber supplement. However, if you are new to the fiber supplements game, it is best to start slowly to allow your body time to adjust. And remember to take your Bonny with a large glass of water (or your favorite healthy beverage). Stay hydrated friends.

Fresh as in our style or shelf life? Bonny's shelf life is 2 years. Please store our product at room temperature 68°- 77°F (20°- 25°C). When in doubt, check the expiration date on the bottom of the packaging.

The gel-ing properties of Bonny are accelerated by hot water. For that reason, we recommend adding Bonny to cool or cold liquids for the best experience.

It usually takes between 24 and 72 hours to start feeling the full effects. We have had customers start to feel the fiber working sooner.

Psyllium husk may affect how well medicines work. Take Bonny at least 2 hours before or after medicines. 

All About Fiber

If you are part of the 5% of Americans that get enough fiber in their diet… high five! The vast majority (95%+) of beautiful humans don’t get enough fiber. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' recommended daily amount of fiber is ~14 grams for every 1,000 calories or ~25 grams for women and ~38 grams for men.

Sad face, because fiber is awesome and has huge positive health benefits. This lopsided statistic was the reason Bonny was born. Our founder started tracking her daily nutrients and was shocked at how low her fiber intake was.

TL;DR The human body doesn’t break down fiber in the bloodstream, so fiber reaches the colon intact where it plays nicely with good gut bacteria. In the digestive tract, fiber expands with water, stimulates the bowels and leaves the body with toxin hitchhikers it’s picked up along the way.

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods and when consumed passes relatively unchanged through the stomach to the colon or large intestine. This is compared to fats, proteins and digestible carbs that the body breaks down and absorbs before they arrive at the large intestine. (Important note: while fiber belongs to the carb family, its health effects are different from digestible carbs like starch and sugar.)

What’s special about the colon or large intestine? It houses gut flora which regulate our health. Like their human hosts, gut flora need energy to survive and function. Enter fiber to the party.

There are two types of fiber (soluble and insoluble) that play different, but vital digestive health roles. Soluble fiber is the fuel gut flora need to flourish. While in the large intestine, fiber fuses with bile to soak up toxins, cholesterol, fat and other uglies before leaving the body together. Insoluble fiber passes through the colon relatively unchanged and bulks up the stool.

TL;DR Two types of fiber each with their own vital digestive health benefits. Both are undigested by the body. Both are in Bonny fiber supplements.

Fiber can be broken down into two types, soluble and insoluble, each with their own specific health benefits. While both are undigested, only soluble fiber can be dissolved in water.

Insoluble fiber does not absorb in water and bulks up your stool aiding in movement through the digestive tract (i.e., if you are constipated this is the fiber you want). This type of fiber stays relative intact and promotes regular bowel movements. Good sources of this fiber include dark leafy greens, whole grains and wheat bran.

Soluble fiber dissolves in water forming a gel-like material that slows down the rate of digestion and makes you feel fuller longer, as well as can help lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar levels. By stimulating healthy bacteria to grow, soluble fiber can decrease the number of potentially harmful yeast, parasites and bacterial species living in the body that trigger inflammation. Good sources include: oats, nuts, citrus fruits, and beans. (And of course Bonny supplements as needed.)

Bonny fiber supplements contain both of these fibers to help improve digestion and many other beneficial ingredients. We could go deeper. Email us at themanger@trybony.com if you want to talk fiber in more detail.

They are not the same, but they are both awesome and support gut health. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria. Prebiotics are food the probiotic bacteria eat. Similar names, different roles.

Bonny is prebiotic, but not a probiotic. Want a deeper dive? Check out this article on prebiotics and probiotics by the Mayo Clinic.

We want you to add more fiber to your diet. Ideally, fiber supplements are not your sole source of fiber. Bonny should be taken as part of a balanced diet.

Aim for 6-10 servings a day from a variety sources (also review our Pinterest boards for more info). Examples of high fiber foods include peas, artichokes, raspberries, leafy greens, beets, dried beans, oat bran, cauliflower, blueberries, nuts, etc.

Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the plant Salvia hispanica.

Fun fact: Chia means strength in Mayan and yes, it’s the same chia as a Chia Pet.

Chia seeds contain a high soluble fiber content. They are a superfood that can absorb up to 10–12 times their weight in water, becoming gel-like and expanding in your stomach. This magic combo helps you feel fuller longer.

Chia seeds also feed the friendly bacteria in your intestine.

Chia seeds contain antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, protein and more. Wanna learn more? Read these articles by the Mayo Clinic and Wikipedia.
