AIM Fit’n Fiber orchard peach is everyday fibre for safe, effective and consistent results. It provides ten grams of dietary fibre through a unique array of synergistic herbs as well as fibre from psyllium husk, oat, apple, acacia, flax seed and konjac. Fiber has been proven effective for regularity, appetite control and cholesterol and weight management.
A great companion to AIM Herbal Fiberblend, AIM Fit’n Fiber provides a boost of flavor to one of AIM’s most effective and historic products. On its own, AIM Fit’n Fiber is a healthy and tasty way to increase your fibre intake with only ten calories per serving.
AIM Fit’n Fiber
The two varieties of fibre—insoluble and soluble—work together to detoxify and cleanse the body. Insoluble fibre moves through the intestinal tract like a scrub brush, bulking up and helping eliminate any unneeded materials. Soft, soluble fibre, which becomes a gel when mixed with water and digestive enzymes, prevents and reduces the absorption of harmful substances while helping regulate blood sugar and reduce cholesterol. It also slows down the movement of food through the intestines which contributes to feelings of fullness.
Fiber and a healthy weight
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that has no calories. Your body uses fibre as an internal cleanser rather than a source of nutrients. One notable effect of this cleansing is fibre’s assistance with weight management.
Dietary fibre reduces insulin secretion in the body by slowing the rate of nutrient absorption following a meal. In this way, you feel fuller longer, your insulin levels are well regulated and your food digests properly. With high-fibre diets, insulin sensitivity increases and, as a result, body weight decreases. A ten-year study published in the Journal of American Medical Association confirmed this effect. Those who consumed nine or more grams of fibre per day lost a substantial amount of weight—in some cases as much as nine pounds more— compared to those who consumed less fibre.
In a 2014 study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers found that a high-fibre diet was nearly as effective for weight loss as a calorie-restricted diet. Researchers cited that people on a high-fibre diet often felt fuller, and because the diet was more permissive, it was easier to stick to.
Fibre and cholesterol
There are two general types of cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is commonly referred to as bad cholesterol because it contributes to plaque that can build up in, clog and stiffen arteries. This can lead to a condition known as atherosclerosis which can, in turn, cause heart disease, stroke, heart attack and worse. Soluble fibre has been found to lower both overall and LDL cholesterol. It is believed that fibre helps to reduce the amount of bile reabsorbed in the intestines, causing the body to use its cholesterol reserves to make more bile. Studies have shown that by increasing your soluble fibre intake by 5 to 10g a day you can reduce your bad cholesterol by around five percent.
A 2007 study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that among the 200 individuals that received 8 to 12 grams of soluble fibre through supplementation daily for 16 weeks improved cholesterol levels in overweight and obese subjects and also lost nearly 9 pounds more that those who received
a placebo. Among those individuals, satiety (feeling of full-ness) was reported to increase after the consumption of soluble fiber and high fiber foods. Cholesterol levels were also monitored during this study and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels (which is a cardiovascular risk marker) decreased by 0.24 to
0.38 μmole/L (or 21.4 to 33.8 mg/dl) compared to the placebo group that decreased by only 0.06 μmole/L (or 5.3 mg/dl). Improvements in the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL (Good) cholesterol and HDL to LDL were also reported.
About AIM Fit’n Fiber
As stated previously, AIM Fit’n Fiber can add both fibre and flavor to AIM Herbal Fiberblend. With a cheeky dash of zesty orchard peach, AIM Fit’n Fiber also makes a welcome addition to any AIM smoothie. Try it with AIM ProPeas and AIM CoCoa LeafGreens. You’ll find that it does not disappoint.
As a standalone product, AIM Fit’n Fiber is made from the finest natural ingredients and can be used as a daily fibre supplement for overall health. A 2011 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine illustrates fibre’s general health benefits and why it’s essential. In the ten-year study that examined over 200,000 subjects, researchers saw that people who had the highest amount of fibre in their diets had a 22 percent reduced overall mortality risk when compared to those who consumed the least.
Natural, bulk-forming psyllium has positive effects on regularity, constipation, diarrhea and even more serious health concerns. Once inside the intestines, psyllium swells as it comes in contact with water, forming a bulky stool that is easy to pass and helps the body rid itself of waste more easily.
Multiple studies have found that psyllium helps reduce constipation, lower cholesterol and limit digestive issues. A study published in the British Medical Journal found that psyllium produced a 90-point reduction in the severity of symptoms for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, almost double the levels of the placebo group.
Oat contributes insoluble fibre. Derived from the outermost layer of the grain, oat fibre aids in regularity by passing directly through the digestive system, undigested. Its insoluble properties allow it to clean out the colon as it exits, helping to maintain regularity and ward off constipation. Since it goes undigested, oat fibre has no calories. AIM only uses certified, gluten-free oat fibre
Konjac Fibre (Glucomannan)
Konjac fiber’s active component is glucomannan, a soluble dietary fiber. Research has shown that konjac fibre works particularly well for constipation. Additionally, this ingredient may likely be effective for the regulation of blood sugar, appetite suppression and cholesterol control.
Used by the ancient Egyptians to treat numerous ailments, acacia fibre is still used today as a first-class source of soluble fibre and has a high digestive tolerance in humans. It is also believed to have some prebiotic qualities. Paired with the probiotic Bifidobacterium, it may relieve some symptoms of
irritable bowel syndrome (World Journal of Gastroenterology 2012).
Artichoke Leaf Extract and Dandelion Root Powder
In several scientific investigations, artichoke leaf extract has shown promise for people who wrestle with indigestion. As bitter herbs, these extracts may be able to help replenish stomach acid and encourage digestive enzyme production when stomach acid is low. Additionally, these herbs may also be beneficial for liver and gallbladder health.
