How many grams of fiber do we need each day?
Every day we hear complaints of constipation, bloating, and dissatisfaction with how the bowels work. We know that fiber is important, but do we take enough??
Katie Ferraro, Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco and University of San Diego analyzes in her article—Fiber is the Future—the best diets of 2014.
The Energy Sustain Complex is a strong balancer of the GI track. It was not only formulated to add a gluten free seeds and grain punch to our protein or meal replacement shakes, but also to add 7.66 grams of fibers; both soluble and insoluble. It is gently cooked to remove oxalates and phytates, which can be problematic.
I have asked a health practitioner who has become an avid purchaser of our Energy Sustain, what is the biggest benefit that has manifested for her patients. She said without hesitation—relief from chronic constipation.
I’ve heard this praise before from our customers more and more lately as practitioners are discovering this unique formula, and thought that now was a good time to pass it on to you!
What is the complex composed of?
- Organic Amaranth

It’s a good start especially if you take it in the morning as an ingredient added to a smoothie.
What’s our morning smoothie consist of?
- One scoop of the Energy Sustain Complex- 7.66 grams dietary fiber.

Our drink gives us 21.66 grams of fiber and our day’s barely begun. That is enough for a female. Males should get at least 30 gram per day. The average American diet delivers 11grams of fiber daily.

The Last Quiz Answer:
This amazing animal is the Thompson’s Gazelle. To avoid predators they are nibble and very fast runners (would you believe 60 miles per hour top speed). They also use bounding leaps, as seen in the picture. They can be 4 feet at the shoulder, weigh 165 pounds (that is a very big one) and live to 12 years. Their head would be at the level of a six foot person’s chest. They are a medium size gazelle of which there are 19 different species. They live in herds which can consist of as few as ten or as many as several hundred animals. There are an estimated dwindling population of 550,000.
Toddlers and young children are fatter today. Why?
One reason according to Martin J. Blaser, the director of the Human Microbiome Program and a professor of medicine and microbiology at NYU, is that children’s diets have gotten a lot richer in recent decades and they often are prescribed antibiotics. Frequent antibiotics + increased caloric diets = obese children. This phenomena is easy to see as a fattening strategy in the animal feed industry with chickens, pigs and cattle, and easily duplicated in rat research studies.
