Description

I know fiber can help maintain healthy digestive system and I try to get most of my fiber from my diet alone, but when I find myself eating less fruits, vegetables and whole grains than I’d like, Benefiber is a great way to easily add a little fiber to my diet since the powder is undetectable. It’s taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely into any food or beverage.
