AIM for a High-Fiber Intake

Everything old is new again, including theories on the benefits of fiber. In 2019, The Lancet revisited the 1969 hypothesis of Denis Burkitt, aka Fiber Man: modern health issues are related to low-fiber intakes.
Burkitt recommended at least 50 grams of fiber daily based on his experiences in Africa, where he treated middle-aged Ugandans who consumed upwards of 100 grams from plant-based diets.
His patients rarely had health problems that were commonplace in countries with high-income lifestyles.1 Based on his findings, a high-fiber intake is nutritional support for the cardiovascular system.2
The Lancet article agreed with the roughly 50-year-old findings of Burkitt, noting it’s plausible that a daily intake of 50 grams of dietary fiber can make a healthy difference in people’s lives.
The adequate intake recommendations for adults ranges from 21–38 grams depending on age and gender. Unfortunately, the average fiber intake of most North Americans is around 15 grams.
Recognizing the widespread issue of fiber deficiency, AIM offers two selections of daily supplemental fiber: Herbal Fiberblend and Fit ’n Fiber. The ingredients in each AIM product are unique, allowing targeted needs along with more dietary fiber.
Herbal Fiberblend contributes to more of a detoxifying focus using a variety of cleansing herbs and psyllium fiber. Fit ’n Fiber supports healthy weight management while providing prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria that are essential for good health. These AIM fiber supplements can be mixed together or taken separately according to needs.
Along with eating plant-based foods, taking fiber supplements such as Herbal Fiberblend and Fit ’n Fiber contribute to a healthy high-fiber intake.
