Fiberís Not Just For Digestion

The US Department of Agriculture recommends that healthy adults get 25 to 38 grams of fiber in their diet every day. That's a lot of fruits and vegetables. So it's not too surprising that only 1 in 5 Americans meet the recommendations for fiber intake. One problem is the misconception that fiber's benefits are limited to digestive health. Men are more likely than women to be unaware of fiber's wide-ranging benefits.

True Strength Moment: Knowledge is power, and for the 30% of consumers who make a point of getting more fiber in their diets, ON's new Fitness Fiber unflavored powder can be added to protein shakes, beverages, puddings, oatmeal, cottage cheese as well as pancake, muffin and other recipes. One teaspoon adds 5 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber with just 10 calories. That's versatile convenience for active individuals.
