AOR Solufibre contains Sunfibre, a soluble fibre derived from guar gum. Sunfibre® has been shown to support gastrointestinal health.
• Supports the health of the gastrointestinal system
• Enhances insulin sensitivity
• Helps lower blood pressure
• Helps lower cholesterol
A Missing Nutrient
Dietary fibre is an important part of the diet, and many people in Western society do not consume enough. Soluble fibre helps maintain the health of the gastrointestinal system, helps control blood glucose levels after a meal, and improves heart health.
Lower Blood Pressure and Other Benefits
Soluble fibre is not digestible by enzymes in the gastrointestinal system, but is instead fermented by healthy bacteria in the gut. Soluble fibre intake has been found to delay the rise in glucose levels after a meal and enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been found to lower blood pressure and reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. A low intake of dietary fibre has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Fibre's ability to slow gastric emptying helps to increase satiety, which may be helpful for individuals who are trying to reduce energy consumption and lose weight.
An Effective Form
Supplemental forms of fibre have been found to be more effective than fibre from the diet. SoluFibre contains partially hydrolyzed guar gum, a highly soluble form of fibre that has been used in clinical trials.
Fibres are an important part of a healthy diet, affecting the health of the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems, as well as other area of health. The average daily intake of fibre in many Western countries reaches only about half the recommended daily amount of 30 to 35g.
Dietary fibre slows transit times in the gastrointestinal system and stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria. Inside the gastrointestinal tract, healthy bacteria ferment the fibre to produce short-chain fatty acids. These fermentation products induce changes in glucose metabolism, leading to lower glucose levels after a meal and to a long-term decrease in blood lipoprotein levels.
The Gastrointestinal System
Soluble fibre is important for the health of the digestive system. In elderly patients with acute disease, fibre was effective in reducing diarrhea. In another study, patients undergoing elective colonic resection who were given soluble fibre had a significantly reduced postoperative hospital stay and an earlier return of gut function.
Dietary fibre reduces the glycemic index of foods (slower breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose), thereby improving glucose tolerance and enhancing insulin sensitivity. Studies have shown that soluble fibers help to delay the absorption of glucose and attenuated the postprandial rise in blood glucose levels.
Fibre’s effects on insulin benefit the cardiovascular system, since insulin is thought to play a role in blood pressure regulation, blood clotting and blocking the formation of arterial plaque. Several clinical trials have found that dietary fibres lower cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein levels. One analysis found that soluble fibre has a favorable effect on blood lipids, in which the increase of each gram of dietary fibre lowered the concentration of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood by about 0.052mmol/L.
Population studies have found that a lower intake of fibre is associated with higher blood pressure. An increase in fibre consumption generally results in a reduction in blood pressure in patients with hypertension. Soluble fibre has also been found to improve mineral absorption in the gastrointestinal system, which may indirectly improve blood pressure. These trials also found that reduction in blood pressure tend to be greater with purified fibre supplements than with fibre-rich foods.
Prospective studies have suggested that soluble fibre intake is inversely associated with the risk of coronary heart disease. Other studies have suggested inverse associations between dietary fibre and cardiovascular disease risk factors such as blood pressure, waist-hip ratio, fasting insulin level, triglyceride levels and fibrinogen levels.
Fibre’s effects are partly due to the short chain fatty acids produced by their fermentation. These products help regulate cholesterol metabolism. There is also some evidence that soluble fibres bind bile acids or cholesterol, leading to lower levels of cholesterol in the liver and an increased clearance of LDL cholesterol. Other mechanisms that have been suggested include changes in intestinal motility, increased excretion of sterols, altered fat absorption, and increased satiety leading to lower overall energy intake.
Energy and Weight Loss
Many studies have found that increased fibre intake is associated with an increase in postmeal satiety and a decrease in subsequent hunger. These studies suggest that increased dietary fibre intake in individuals who are not consuming enough fibre may help to decrease the prevalence of obesity. On the other hand, fibre intake has also been found to help with lean tissue accretion in athletes who were taking part in resistance training
