REVIEWS OF FIBERCHOICE
Review by Dale
I have had IBS with chronic constipation since childhood. I am now 66. I have tried many fiber supplements without much success; however, I do think Fiberchoice is helpful. I also take a heaping tablespoon of Unifiber in the morning with juice. I drink seven or eight glasses of water a day and try to eat a high fiber diet. Plums are especially helpful. My only complaint about Fiberchoice is that it gives me terrible gas about three hours after chewing two tablets.
Review by Ashley
I was diagnosed with IBS (my main symptom is constipation) when I was in college. The only treatment the gastroenterologist offered me at the time was to eat more fiber, drink more water, and exercise. He gave me a list of foods with the most fiber and sent me home.
Consequently, over the past 10 years I've tried almost every fiber supplement/laxative on the market. I wasn't happy with any of them, until I discovered Fiberchoice. Each chewable tablet provides 2g of fiber and you can take up to six tablets a day. That's almost half of your recommended fiber for one day. They taste good too. No thick powdery drinks or huge horse pills. And best of all, it's affordable at about $10 for a bottle.
