Prebiotic fibres shape the health of our microbiota and are essential for the promotion of many healthy digestive processes, including bowel movement regularity, stool bulk and transit time. However, the implications of fibre intake go far beyond the digestive tract. Increased fibre intake helps to improve satiety, promote healthy cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the Canadian population fall short on their dietary fibre intake, which means that supplementation may play a valuable role.

In contrast to the significant benefit of increased fibre intake, some supplemental fibres can be poorly tolerated and actually cause many digestive disturbances. For example, high doses of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) or psyllium fibre can cause bloating, distension, flatulence and abdominal cramping when they are fermented by gut microbiota. This leads many patients and practitioners to avoid their use altogether. However, there are better options as not all prebiotic fibres lead to digestive discomfort.
