Dietary fiber is defined as complex carbohydrates that are resistant to the action of digestive enzymes, and therefore pass through the intestinal tract, unabsorbed. Dietary fiber includes substances such as cellulose, hemicellulose (xylans, galactans and mannans), pectins, gums, and lignin. Dietary fiber has many nutritional benefits for the health of the gastrointestinal tract. Insoluble dietary fiber, such as cellulose and many hemicelluloses, are not efficiently fermented in the colon. As a result, they provide fecal bulk, bind water, and help soften stools. Most types of dietary fiber, when hydrated, contribute substantially to the volume of stomach contents and help provide a feeling of fullness. Fiber-Plex was formulated to take advantage of all of the physiological benefits of fiber by combining a wide variety of insoluble, non-fermentable and soluble, fermentable natural fiber sources.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 3 capsules with at least 8 ounces of water twice daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional. The capsules may also be pulled apart, if desired, and the contents stirred into 8 ounces of water or juice.

This is the best I've tried, and I have tried many. There's no bloating or gas. Really works!
May cause cancer
I ordered this item and was suprised to see a sticker claiming that this product contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm. Why this is not stated PRIOR to me paying for the item and then having to ship it back is beyond me. I am trying to get toxins out of my body...not put them back in.
