The Best Fiber Supplement For Weight Loss And Control (It's NOT What You Think!)

My last two blog posts have addressed fiber as a weight loss accelerator as follows:

According the doctors I'm following (Dr. Mark Hyman - 10-Day Detox and my own gastro surgeon), a fiber supplement is a must-do for digestive health, weight loss, and blood sugar control.

But which fiber supplement is the best?

My gastro surgeon's prescription was 1 tablespoon of Metamusil in a big glass of water every morning. It's active ingedient is psyllium husks but the sugar free version contains the artificial sweetener Aspartame. Artificial sweeteners are as bad as sugar!

What's the alternative?
(as recommended by Dr. Hyman)

Natural Factors PGX Daily Singles ($15.99 on Amazon, the cheapest price)

Note These Contraindications:
  • PGX can slow the rate of absorption of medications, so it is recommended to take any oral medications 1 hour before PGX Daily Singles or 2 to 3 hours after.
  • Diabetics must monitor their blood sugar and adjust their medication accordingly as the PGX helps to control blood sugar and it may lessen the need for medications or insulin over time. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use.
  • Consult with your health care practitioner prior to taking PGX if on any medication.
