It's necessary for digestion.
And honestly, "necessary" might be understating things a bit.
Fiber is a POWER 👏 HOUSE 👏 for your body.
And if fiber in general is a powerhouse, prebiotic fiber is the specialized, high-density fuel keeping the lights on in the powerhouse, making the executives (you) happy, and keeping the whole city running smoothly. (And your microbiome, by the way, is VITAL to your health and well-being in countless ways–read about it in our other article, here.)
Prebiotic fiber feeds your good gut bacteria (probiotics), keeping them healthy and content. And when your gut microbiome is healthy and happy… Surprise! So are you. But most of us aren't taking care of our microbiome the way we should be. (Peep this article in the New York Times about the shocking fiber gap in American diets.)
So, what’s the best way to take care of your microbiome?
A prebiotic supplement is the simplest way to do this. If possible, try to get prebiotic fiber from whole foods as much as you can. For most of us, however, getting that amount of prebiotic fiber from food is almost impossible–this is why supplements like Complete Prebiotic do a great job of keeping you healthy!
But ENOUGH TALK, amirite?
One thing even the gut-savviest of us struggle with at times is grit in our fiber supplement. Drinking down your fiber becomes decidedly less pleasant when it's full of... well, grit. Here's a list of the smoothest ways to down your fiber, so you can bring that enjoyment back up to five stars.
Smoothies & Shakes. Hey, guess which of your favorite healthy drinks is already a little bit on the thick side? That's right, SMOOTHIES! Smoothie was by far the fan-favorite for taking fiber (and collagen, and protein…) and there are plenty of ways to do it.
- Protein Smoothie
- Lean Smoothie
- Fruit Smoothie
- Green Smoothie
- Mixed-Berry Milkshake // Triple Berry Pie Shake
Yogurt. Not a smoothie person? That's okay. Even we can't do a smoothie ALL the time. Fortunately, yogurt is another healthy and delicious way to mix your prebiotic fiber into your diet! Greek yogurt, non-dairy yogurt, even homemade yogurt, you name it–whatever yogurt you like, you can probably mix in some prebiotic fiber. We recommend using a plain, vanilla, or some kind of berry-flavored yogurt.
Sparkling Water (or regular water and your favorite drink mix). Feeling a little bougie? AS YOU SHOULD! Let's keep that going with a fancy lil' sparkling water beverage that also happens to be very good for you. Here's how.
- Mix your product well with room-temperature water. This should be about a third of your total beverage. You can mix Prebiotic, Collagen, Trimstix, Spryng, or any combination that tastes great!
- Sparkling Step 2: Top it off with a can of your favorite sparkling beverage! We love picking ones that complement the berry flavor of Complete Prebiotic.
- Flat Step 2: Keep the whole beverage smooth and flat by skipping the sparkling water in favor of regular water. Throw in some of your favorite drink mix, blend once more, and voilà! See your perfect Prebiotic drink.
Shake Before Ya Sip. That's right. This simple remedy involves a little extra calorie-burning (yup, even shaking your drink up burns calories, friends) to "help the medicine go down." The simple but effective method of shaking prevents any bulkier fiber-y goodness from settling at the bottom of your drink and hitting you all at once. We’d caution you to be careful about this method if your beverage has any carbonation in it, though.
Warm Tea or Room Temp Water (Stay hydrated, right?). This is also an extremely popular way to mix up Complete Collagen. Lucky for all of us, it also works for Complete Prebiotic. Try mixing up the fan-favorite Gut Glow drink! Otherwise, simply brew a pot or cup of your favorite cozy tea (or another warm beverage) and add in some of your favorite Xyngular supplement!
Thicker Liquid. We've touched on this before, but it helps to mix anything gritty with a bit thicker liquid, such as almond milk, coconut milk, or even oat milk. What if you mixed it with hot chocolate? Could it be a chocolate-covered berry situation? (Spoiler: Yes, it could. We’ve started with a Lean Chocolate base, which complements Complete Prebiotic perfectly! 🤌)
You’ll take a proactive step toward maintaining your overall health and well-being by making prebiotic fiber a regular part of your diet (along with a probiotic, because they really do their best work together). Call us partial, but Xyngular Complete Prebiotic is the gold standard of prebiotic supplements.
But how are we so sure that our prebiotic is that good?
We tried the rest and built the best. Don't believe us? Read on to check out the benefits yourself.
Organic herbal ingredients
Like all of our products, Complete Prebiotic is based on real results, rooted in science. We won’t bore you with TOO many crazy details (although we could, because we’re super excited about them), but thanks to plant-based ingredients like Organic Green Banana Fiber, Anthocyanidins, European Blueberry, Pomegranate, Organic Apple Fiber, and Organic Partially Hydrolyzed Guar Gum (PHGG), you get the most powerful benefits nature has to offer!
And speaking of powerful benefits, the power of organic ingredients simply cannot be overstated. Choosing organic ensures that the ingredients are grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This means you're getting the purest and most natural form of the nutrients, free from potentially harmful chemicals.
Organic farming practices also tend to be more environmentally sustainable and support biodiversity. By opting for organic health supplements, you're not only prioritizing your own well-being but also contributing to a healthier planet. Plus, organic ingredients often retain more of their nutritional value, making them a wise choice for those seeking the utmost benefit from their supplements.
Perfect Amount of Fiber Content
Complete Prebiotic has 6.5 grams of dietary fiber per serving. Compare that to your average grocery store fiber supplement, which usually has just 5 grams of fiber per serving (no really, go look next time you're shopping).
That may not sound like a big difference, but the amount of fiber in your fiber supplement is a pretty big deal. Here's why. First off, it directly affects how well the supplement does its job of keeping your digestion in top shape. You want enough fiber to keep things moving smoothly and prevent any "traffic jams" in your gut.
But that's not all! The right amount of fiber also helps with other cool stuff like controlling your appetite and managing your weight. It can make you feel full and satisfied, which means you're less likely to munch on extra snacks. It also helps keep your blood sugar levels in check. If you want to avoid those wild energy rollercoasters during the day, the fiber in your supplement can help slow down the sugar rush.
So, when it comes to picking a fiber supplement, pay attention to the amount – it's like the secret sauce that makes it work its magic for your digestive health and overall well-being.
Every Ingredient Shines
Organic Green Banana Fiber. Green banana fiber is like a secret weapon here, mainly because it's a fantastic source of resistant starch. This stuff doesn't break down in your small intestine but heads straight for your colon, where it's like a buffet for all the good gut buddies. Plus, it's packed with potassium, vitamin B6, and antioxidants that your body loves.
And don't worry about it being all fancy – it's got a mild taste, plays well with others, and most folks find it super easy on the tummy.
Anthocyanidins. A core component of anthocyanins, anthocyanidins are responsible for providing that gorgeous purple hue in your Complete Prebiotic. They’re also responsible for the color of blueberries, blackberries, roses, and even radishes!
European Blueberry. A blueberry by any other name would be just as sweet! That’s certainly the case with the European Blueberry, also known by its scientific classification Vaccinium myrtillus, or its common name, the bilberry. This delicious and antioxidant-rich fruit boasts powerful health benefits (which humans have known about and used since the Middle Ages!) as well as a veritable stockpile of anthocyanins.
Pomegranate. Pomegranate is like a gourmet meal for your gut's good bacteria. It's rich in fiber that these beneficial bugs adore, helping them thrive and keep your digestion in check.
On top of that, pomegranate is a nutrition superstar, packing in vitamins like C and K, along with powerful antioxidants that fight off harmful stuff in your body. This delicious superfruit isn't just good for your gut; it's a tasty way to boost your overall health.
Organic Apple Fiber. Apple fiber is another natural and gentle way to support a healthy gut. Rich in dietary fiber, it provides essential nourishment to your beneficial gut bacteria, helping them thrive and keeping your digestion on track.
What's more, it's organic, ensuring it's free from synthetic pesticides and chemicals, making it a wholesome and pure choice for naturally enhancing your gut health!
Organic Partially Hydrolyzed Guar Gum (PHGG). Don’t confuse this powerful plant fiber with guar gum, the common thickening agent for many processed products (think syrup, ketchup, sauces, juice, ice cream, etc.). Although both come from the guar or cluster leaf (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba), and both are soluble dietary fibers, your body processes them very differently.
- Guar gum is a natural thickening agent derived from guar beans.
- When consumed, it forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract due to its high viscosity.
- This gel can slow down the absorption of nutrients, including carbohydrates, leading to a gradual rise in blood sugar levels.
- Some individuals may experience digestive discomfort or gas when consuming guar gum, especially in larger amounts, due to its gel-forming properties.
Partially Hydrolyzed Guar Gum (PHGG):
- PHGG is derived from guar gum but has undergone a hydrolysis process, breaking it down into smaller, more digestible components.
- Unlike guar gum, PHGG is less likely to form a gel in the digestive tract.
- PHGG is highly soluble and can be easily dissolved in water or other beverages.
- It is considered gentler on the digestive system and is often used to alleviate digestive discomfort, including diarrhea and constipation.
- PHGG is often used as a prebiotic, providing nourishment to beneficial gut bacteria without the potential digestive side effects associated with guar gum.
While both guar gum and PHGG are soluble fibers derived from guar beans, PHGG is typically easier on the digestive system due to its reduced likelihood of forming a gel in the digestive tract (and causing digestive discomfort). And that’s why PHGG is such a champ, and such a helpful ingredient in Complete Prebiotic!
In the world of gut health, fiber is nothing short of a powerhouse. But prebiotic fiber? It's like the high-density fuel that keeps the lights on, makes the executives (that's you!) happy, and ensures the whole city (your microbiome) runs smoothly. Taking care of your microbiome is essential, and a prebiotic fiber supplement like Complete Prebiotic can make it simple. While whole foods are great, sometimes it's challenging to get enough prebiotic fiber from them. That's where supplements come in, making it easy to keep your gut buddies happy and support your gut health.
And even better? Whether you prefer smoothies, yogurt, sparkling water, or tea, there's a tasty way to get your daily dose of Complete Prebiotic.
Xyngular Complete Prebiotic is loaded with high-quality, organic ingredients like green banana fiber, anthocyanidins, European blueberry, pomegranate, organic apple fiber, and organic partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG). These ingredients not only support your gut but also offer a range of health benefits.
So, don't settle for less—choose Complete Prebiotic to nourish your microbiome and enjoy the incredible benefits of organic ingredients in your supplements, the perfect amount of fiber content, and the gentleness of PHGG. Your gut and overall well-being will thank you!
