I have had issues lately with constipation, and stomach pain, so went looking for a fiber supplement. I have no idea where to buy Psylium husks? Everything I saw was half sugar.
I finally got Fiber Well Gummies. 2 of them are 5 g carb, and 5 g fiber.. less than 1 g sugar alcohol.
Ingredients however are: Polydextrose, xylitol,gelatin, malic acid, natural flavors, color ( purple carrot juice concentrate, blueberry and carrot concentrates, annatto extract ), sucralose, fractionated coconut oil, and beeswax.
I planned to take 3 a day for 7.5 g of fiber, but I know xylitol, and sucralose are sugar alcohols, and polydextrose sounds like sugar. Should I trust the 5 g of carbs - 5 grams of fiber as 0 net carbs? Are these sugar/ sugar alcohols minimal?
What fiber supplements would you recommend, and are they available in a regular grocery?
