Fibralex™ is a dietary supplement formulated to promote children’s digestive health and bowel movements. Fibralex™ is available in powder form from Natura-Genics®.
Fibralex is a gentle yet effective combination of fiber, pectin, prune extract, and slippery elm bark. Fibralex contains fiber and pectin from apples, which are some of the richest sources of fiber. Fiber is a carbohydrate that cannot be digested by the body. Children need an appropriate amount of fiber per day to promote and maintain a healthy digestive system.
Benefits of Fibralex™
• Promotes Children’s Digestive Health
A healthy digestive system starts at a very young age, and it is important to try and meet nutritional recommendations. Children need about 10-25 grams of fiber per day depending on their age. Fiber supports a healthy digestive system in children, supports healthy bowel movements, and may promote a healthy weight. Apple pectin, included in Fibralex™, is considered a prebiotic which helps feed good bacteria in the gut. Additionally, it may inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Slippery elm is a demulcent, which means it promotes soothing effects in the stomach and intestine linings and supports reduced irritation.
• Promotes Bowel Movements
Constipation in children can be quite common and is often caused by them holding in their stool. Other causes may include a lack of fiber in their diet or not drinking enough liquids. Fiber supports bowel movements by absorbing water, increasing the bulk of stool, and helping it pass through the intestines. Prune extract contains high sorbitol content and may support natural laxative effects, promoting bowel movements and supporting the relief of constipation. Prunes are also very high in fiber.
As a dietary supplement, add one (1) teaspoon to a glass of water or juice two (2) times daily.
Keep tightly closed in a dry place and do not expose to excessive heat.
If symptoms persist, take the child to a doctor. Chronic constipation may be a sign of a serious condition.
