Fiber, fiber, fiber… Doesn’t matter whether it’s barley, bran, wheat, rye or any other type of consumable plant fiber, it’s all pretty good for you and can facilitate weight loss (when consumed regularly in a healthy diet). Packing fiber into a pill? A little trickier. Some powders or drinks may have a bit more fiber, but it’s always better to go with the real deal. When it comes to barley rice fiber, a unique benefit is that it contains more vitamins than wheat.
Amount needed: 25 grams of fiber per day of both soluble and insoluble fiber via your diet and/or supplementation. Ease into 25 grams if you are not used to taking in this much fiber.
