More about FibreLife
Do you want better control of your body weight?
Do you ever wish you had more energy throughout
Do you worry about having high cholesterol or a
predisposition to diabetes?
Weight control is at the forefront of discussions in the global
medical and scientific communities which have identified obesity
as a pandemic that will cripple health systems worldwide with related
illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. There are now over 1
billion overweight adults in the world, exceeding those considered
malnourished which number 600 million.
Fibre is the ‘miracle’ nutrient celebrated by the worldwide
scientific and medical communities for its vast health benefits.
As it helps to address the issues of obesity and weight control,
fibre may help reduce the onset of both diabetes and cardiovascular
Recently, two different studies 1,2 reported that a high dietary
fibre intake could reduce levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Increased
levels of CRP have been found to increase the risk of both adult-onset
type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Foods that are generally high in fibre include fruits, vegetables,
nuts and whole grain products. Typically, health authorities agree
that we should be consuming a minimum of 30 g of total fibre per
day. However, due to the increasing intake of overprocessed convenience
foods, we are generally consuming less than half this amount.
For this reason, Lifestyles is introducing FibreLife, a revolutionary
fibre blend designed to combat the worldwide trend toward obesity
by supplementing dietary fibre.
“FibreLife has resulted from years of intensive research
and laboratory testing. This unique and effective supplement can
help people enjoy the benefits of increased dietary fibre and help
them to better manage their body weight”, announced Paul Kramer,
R.N.C.P., Vice President of International Product Research and Development
at Lifestyles and author of international best-seller "Fighting
Formulated with a proprietary blend of three types of healthy soluble
fibre, FibreLife contains ingredients that have been shown in numerous
scientific studies to:
|| Help you maintain a healthy body weight by creating

||Help regulate your blood sugar by lowering the Glycemic Index
(GI) of a meal and slowing the digestion of food to stabilize
|| Help you lower high cholesterol levels and eliminate toxins
from the body by promoting a healthy gastro-intestinal tract

effective nutritional supplements and healthy eating habits. We
are proud to offer our customers premium quality, natural source

Q. What is FibreLife?
A. FibreLife is a proprietary, highly
viscous soluble fibre blend from Lifestyles that supplements the
deficiency of fibre.
Q. How does FibreLife work?
A. Once ingested with plenty of water,
FibreLife forms a gel-like complex of natural fibres. In fact, FibreLife
has the greatest viscosity (gelling capacity) of any dietary fibre.
This complex slows down the digestion of food, reduces the absorption
of sugar and calories, and creates a sense of fullness without impacting
your energy levels.
Q. What is viscosity?
A. Viscosity is a measure of the thickness
of a liquid substance. When evaluating soluble fibre, it is the
viscosity of the gel that forms when mixed with water that provides
Q. What are the primary benefits of FibreLife?
A. The key benefits of FibreLife ingredients
|| it can help regulate your appetite to help you
achieve and maintain a healthy weight
|| it can help regulate your energy levels by lowering the Glycemic
Index of a meal to stabilize the release of sugars into your
||it can help to lower your cholesterol level and eliminate
Q. What is the Glycemic Index (GI)?
A. The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure
of how certain foods affect your blood sugar levels.
Q. Why is the Glycemic Index (GI) important?
A. High-GI foods, such as fast and processed
foods, are rapidly digested and cause sharp spikes in your blood
sugar levels. This can damage your health and also contribute to
weight gain, as you will soon be hungry and low on energy. Conversely,
low-GI foods are slowly digested, causing a gradual and sustained
increase in your blood sugar level.
Q. How does FibreLife help with the Glycemic
A. FibreLife helps lower the overall
Glycemic Index of a meal, thus ensuring that food is more slowly
digested and blood sugar levels are regulated.
Q. What other benefits can you expect from
A. Since the ingredients in FibreLife
can help you reduce and control your weight, you may experience
the many related health benefi ts that come with lower body weight.
Q. What research exists to support the benefi
ts of FibreLife?
A. There are countless clinical trials
published in peer-reviewed journals that prove soluble fibre's varied
benefits. Please speak with your Lifestyle's Distributor or visit
www.lifestyles.net for more information.
Q. If I don’t need to lose weight, do
I still need FibreLife?
A. Yes, since FibreLife helps to address
the dietary deficiency for fibre. According to health authorities,
adults should be consuming at least 30 g of fibre each day; however,
a majority of people consume less than half that amount through
regular diet alone.
Q. What is soluble fibre
A. Soluble fibre dissolves and thickens
in water. Soluble fibre is probably best known for its cholesterol-lowering
effect. Soluble fibre is made up of sticky substances like gums
and pectin, which form a gel-like substance in the presence of liquid.
Cholesterol that is stored in the blood is used to produce bile
acids; and therefore, as the gel binds the cholesterol and bile
acids in the small intestine, it is eliminated from our body with
regular bowel movements. This action of gelling and binding is also
responsible for soluble fibre's ability to promote a feeling of
fullness. In contrast, insoluble fibre is the “roughage”
in our diet that helps promote a healthy digestive system.
Q. Why is FibreLife so potent?
A. FibreLife is a blend of naturally-occurring
water-soluble fibres that together can absorb hundreds of times
their weight in water. FibreLife’s blend has a water-binding
capacity that is many times greater than glucomannan alone and tenfold
greater than other soluble fibres such as psyllium, flax seeds,
or guar gum. It’s FibreLife’s unique blend of specific
fibres in specific ratios that make FibreLife so potent. This means
that smaller doses of FibreLife can have greater beneficial health
effects than other fibres, as well as supporting safe, sustainable
weight loss – in other words, a small amount of FibreLife
is equivalent to a large amount of other fibres.
Q. What are the directions for using FibreLife?
A. Take 1 to 2 capsules prior to each
meal with 250 - 500 mL of water for each capsule, up to 3 times
per day. Make sure you consume in total at least 3 L of water per
Q. How should I incorporate FibreLife into
A. Whenever increasing fibre intake,
it is important to start slowly and increase as your body adjusts.
Begin by taking 1 capsule daily with 250 - 500 mL of water. After
a few days, take 1 capsule twice daily, each with 250 - 500 mL of
water. Continue to add 1 capsule every few days until you reach
the recommended dose or a dose your body is comfortable with.
Q. Can children take FibreLife?
A. Fiber is essential for children’s
health as well. However, due to its high potency and powerful gelling
capacity, it is recommended that only children 13 years of age and
older take FibreLife. Thirteen is the age individuals are considered
adult from a nutrition point-of-view.
Q. Do I need to take FibreLife every day?
A. For best results, it is essential
that FibreLife be taken consistently on a daily basis.
Q. Why is drinking water so important?
A. Since FibreLife absorbs many times
its own weight in water, not enough water will cause FibreLife to
become so viscous that it is essentially a hard ball in our digestive
tract. This can lead to constipation. However, with plenty of water,
a nice smooth gel forms, which does the opposite – eases constipation
and promotes bowel regularity.
Q. How does FibreLife interact with prescription/non-prescription
drugs and other supplements?
A. If you take any medications and/or
supplements, it is recommended that you take them at least one hour
before taking FibreLife. This will help ensure that both your medication
and FibreLife can work effectively.
Q. Are there any side-eff ects when taking
A. For normal people who are following
the directions for use, there should not be any side-effects. However,
as with any soluble fibre product, if insufficient amounts of water
are taken, constipation may result. Also, for those who currently
lack fibre in their diet, fibre should be added slowly or else some
gastrointestinal discomfort (such as gas and bloating) may result.
