Benefits of Benefiber®

Flower Icon

Dietary fiber is important for good digestive health and that's just the beginning! Benefiber® even helps you curb hunger cravings†. Balancing your micorflora is another one of the many benefits of Benefiber®.

Some of the many benefits of Benefiber® include:

Overall Good Digestive Health
Your digestive system, or gut, is a marvelously intelligent and sensitive fuel system. Its amazing construction is designed to break down foods and absorb their nutrients so that they can be converted into energy and other forms that the body can use.

Being the central nutritional hub gives your gut a star role in your total well-being1. When in balance, your digestive system contributes to your health in several ways, including keeping “bad” bacteria from multiplying and overwhelming the gastrointestinal tract, and by paying a key role in regulating appetite through the gut-brain connection.
Benefiber Benefits
Feeling Fuller and More Satiated with
Benefiber® Healthy Shape
Benefiber® Healthy Shape helps you naturally feel fuller and more satisfied longer. Clinical studies showed that people who took Benefiber® regularly were less hungry and consumed fewer calories. And, when you’re not distracted by hunger cravings, you’re less likely to give in to temptations and can stick to your weight management goals like eating less, choosing healthy, nutritious foods and exercising regularly.
Benefiber Benefits
The Naturally Low
Glycemic Index of Benefiber®

The Glycemic Index (GI) measures how quickly your blood sugar levels rise after consuming different types of carbohydrate containing foods.


Food is given a Glycemic Index from 0-100, and foods can either be ranked ‘Low’, ‘Medium’ or ‘High’. Foods that are considered to be ‘High GI’ will cause blood sugar to rise more quickly than lower ranking foods.


A handy thing to keep in mind is that if you consume a high-GI food, you can balance that meal by also consuming a lower-GI food. We’ve included a list of some example foods and their GI ranking below:


Low Glycemic Index Foods (55 or Less)
  • -100% stone-ground whole wheat or pumpernickel bread
  • -Oatmeal (rolled or steel-cut)
  • -Muesli
  • -Pasta
  • -Sweet Potato
  • -Most fruits

Medium Glycemic Index Foods (56-69)
  • -Whole wheat, rye and pita bread
  • -Quick oats
  • -Brown, wild or basmati rice

High Glycemic Index Foods (70 or more)
  • -White bread or bagels
  • -Corn flakes puffed rice
  • -Instant oatmeal
  • -Shortgrain white rice
  • -Pumpkin
  • -Rice cakes

Oh, and just so you know, Benefiber® has a GI of 25, meaning it would be considered a Low GI Food.

Benefiber Benefits
The Prebiotic Effect

The fiber in Benefiber® is a special type of fiber that has prebiotic effects, which means it feeds and nourishes the good bacteria, which exists naturally in your gut. Benefiber® works to strengthen and significantly increase the good bacteria, while suppressing the bad to promote an optimal environment for good digestive health.

Benefiber Benefits
The Emerging Science of
The Gut Brain Connection

Most people aren’t aware that gut-brain connection exists, but it is an important relationship to understand.


Your gut doesn’t work alone/It’s always in constant contact with other parts of your body, especially your brain. During the digestive process, your brain signal your gut to produce and secrete necessary digestive enzymes. It also sends signals to the nerves within each organ to help pass food through the digestive tract. All while your stomach and small intestine release hormones to stimulate production of digestive juices and regulate appetite – through your brain. Research continues to explore this exciting communication pathway, its influence on your body’s overall health and how fiber supports it.
