There are two types of dietary fiber, soluble, and insoluble.
Dietary fiber may play several roles relative to diabetes, including potential effects on satiety,obesity and the absorption of certain sugars. It is also believed that soluble fibre may slow digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, helping to prevent wide swings in blood sugar levels. This could also be a factor in achieving a sense of fullness, especially when you consider that fibre may hamper the absorption of calorie-dense dietary fat, too".

Why cleanse?

Colon cleansing with Herbal Fiberblend.

Toxins undermine our health. Elson Haas, M.D., in his book Staying Healthy with Nutrition, he defines a toxin simply as "any substance that creates irritating and/or harmful effects in the body, undermining our health or stressing our biochemical n functions."

More specifically, a digestive system overloaded with toxins can result in a number of symptoms. These include constipation, stomach bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain, excessive mucus, poor concentration, headaches, poor skin, poor memory, depression, body odou,r and bad breath.

Some health practitioners relate toxins to specific diseases. R.A. Buist, M.D., (International Clinical Nutrition; 1988; 8:4) states that chronic fatigue syndrome may be related to toxin exposure. Multiple chemical sensitivity and fibromyalgia (muscle and joint pain) may also be environment-related diseases. Indeed, there is a new medical category, clinical ecology, which deals exclusively with how toxins in the environment affect our health.
The body does have a system in place for detoxifying these harmful toxins. The most important cleansing organ is the liver.
Eliminative channels include the bowels (the digestive system), kidneys, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system.
When the body is doing its job, and is not overburdened with toxins, the blood carries toxins to the liver, which uses enzymes to detoxify the harmful substances. They are rendered harmless or converted into a water-soluble form that is then eliminated via the urine or feces.
Unfortunately, this system can handle only so many toxins and was designed for "natural" toxins, not the man-made ones we have to deal with today.

Marshmallow Root - Althaea officinalis
Marshmallow root derives its botanical name from the Greek word altho, which means "to heal". The entire plant, including the root, leaves, and flowers, has been used for centuries. The leaves contain flavonoids. A confection made from the herb was originally the inspiration for the candy known as marshmallow, although the commercial product does not contain any of the plant.
Mullein - Verbascum thapsus
Mullein has a long history of use. In India it is believed to ward off spirits, and in Medieval Europe the plant was dipped in suet and used as a torch. Mullein grows wild in most of the United States, Europe, and Asia due to its ability to survive in marginal soils with little moisture. It is used for a variety of purposes.
Oatstraw - Avena sativa
Oats are a traditional staple of Northern Europe. Cereal made from oatmeal (the crushed grain) is a nutritious breakfast food in many parts of the world. The entire plant is referred to as oatstraw, which is typically gathered for use in herbal blends when the grain is ripe. Recent research has shown that oat bran, and to a lesser extent oatmeal, may help reduce high blood cholesterol. Oatstraw contains saponins, flavonoids, a number of minerals, vitamins B1, B2, D, E, and carotene, as well as wheat protein.
Passionflower - Passiflora incarnata
Passionflower was used by Native Americans and later was "discovered" by the Spanish. They gave it its name because they saw symbols of Christianity in its design. The stem of the plant is crushed and brewed as tea.
Psyllium - Plantago ovata
A grain grown in India, psyllium has been given a lot of attention lately for its high content of soluble fiber - up to 70 percent. This is much more soluble fiber than oat bran contains.
Pumpkin seeds - Cuburbita pepo
A native plant of the Americans, Native Americans grew pumpkins alongside corn. Today it is one of the most familiar types of produce in North America. Both the pumpkin seeds and pulp can be consumed, although it is the seeds that have been used over the years for their beneficial effects.
Shavegrass - Equisetum arvense
Also known as horsetail grass, shavegrass is a member of one of the oldest groups of plants on earth. The plant's success can be attributed to its ability to grown in poor soil with minimum moisture. It has been used both internally and externally since the 16th century, usually as a powder. As an herb, the entire plant is used. It contains flavonoids and minerals.
Slippery Elm Bark - Ulmus rubra
The slippery elm tree is found in the central and northern parts of the United States. It was used by North American Indians as a skin ointment. At one time, the plant was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia, a book describing medicinal preparations.
Stevia - Stevia rebaudiana
Stevia, a plant native to Brazil and Paraguay, has been used for centuries by the indigenous people of these countries. For some 40 years it has been drunk as an herbal tea. Currently, there is much interest in stevia and over 500 scientific articles have been published on it.
Violet - Viola odorata
Stories about the uses of violets date back to Greek mythology. Napoleon Bonaparte gave violets to Josephine and later used the flower on his political emblem. In Germany, finding the first spring violet was celebrated with dancing. In 1960, scientific studies were undertaken to try to determine the source of the plant's benefits. The violet flower is a good source of vitamins A and C.
Witch Hazel - Hamamelis virginiana
Native Americans taught the first settlers how to use witch hazel for medicinal purposes. Today it is sometimes used as a skin lotion or aftershave. Its name does not come from "witches"; rather, it derives from an old English word meaning "to bend."
Yucca - Yucca schidigera/Yucca brevifolia
The yucca is a cactus-like succulent common to the western United States and most of Mexico. It has been commonly used by Native Americans for centuries as a soap for personal hygiene and also as a detergent for clothing. The soap is derived from the roote yucca plant.
