Bioglan Biotic Balance Inulin

This digestion supplement from Bioglan is made from Inulin, which comes from chicory root. It’s a water soluble fibre which is non-digestible, which means it passes through the stomach and the small intestine and sits in the large intestine where it is fermented by the gut bacteria. You can mix the powder into anything you like, from water to juice, and the taste is really discreet. With 4.5g of fibre per 5g, it’s very high in Fibre too. Learn more and buy it here -

Fruits and Fibres Regular

What’s really impressive about this digestive supplement is that it’s 100% natural - each chewable cube is made from fruits which are high in fibre and enzymes. This includes figs, dates (as we mentioned in our guide about how healthy Nakd bars are), and rhubarb. Each cube contains 1.6g of fibre, and we think they’re really tasty. Plus, it’s really convenient to just eat a couple of cubes when you want a bit more Fibre in your diet. Learn more and buy it here -

Being able to drink this digestive supplement from Fybogel is really useful - you just mix a sachet with water and you’ve immediately got a tasty orange drink which is very high in fibre. Fybogel is made from 100% Ispaghula Husk which is a soluble fibre. You can drink one of these sachets every day, and it usually works within 12 to 24 hours. It tastes good and it’s convenient, so we think it’s a great fibre supplement. Learn more and buy it here -
