Does your busy lifestyle stop you from getting enough fiber in your diet? We can help with that! Herbaland’s Fruit & Veg Fiber Gummies are specially formulated with IMO extracted from cassava root, which provides a rich source of fiber to promote healthy digestion and regularity.
Made from the freshest high-fiber and nutrient dense fruits and vegetables like blueberry, pomegranate, ginger, kale, and parsley. This supplement helps to support and maintain a healthy digestive system and provide gentle relief of constipation and/or irregularity.
What is fiber?
Fiber is a material found in plant foods that your body can’t digest or absorb. Instead of being digested by the body like other components such as fat or protein, fiber passes all the way through your digestive system while staying mostly intact and out of the body helping to improve bowel movements and remove unwanted waste along the way.
Types of fiber
There are two types of fiber, both of which are equally important to overall health, the digestive system and for preventing disease.
Soluble fiber: a type of fiber that dissolves in water forming a gel-like substance, which slows digestion.
Foods that contain soluble fiber: psyllium, beans, oats, barely, potatoes, peas, apples, citrus, strawberries.
Insoluble fiber: this type of fiber does not dissolve in water, but instead helps to increase the bulk of stool and movement of material through the digestive system.
Foods that contain insoluble fiber: whole grains, nuts, seeds, cucumbers, celery, cauliflower, green beans, root vegetables.
The importance of fiber

Benefits of using a fiber supplement
It can be hard to depend on food alone to meet all your fiber requirements, that’s why we created Fruit & Vegetable Fiber Gummies. A tasty and fun way for you to fill those nutrient gaps and maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. Fiber is an especially important nutrient to consume regularly in foods and as it’s associated with many important health benefits and can greatly improve bowel movements, unfortunately it is lacking in our Standard American Diet. Therefore, fiber supplementation is an effective addition to any diet, or health condition to help meet your needs.
