      I have been taking various forms of fiber ever since my doctor recommended it as a way to help regulate my symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. For much of that time, I used basic, cheap psyllium fiber supplements that you can get anywhere. Eventually, I learned that other fibers had more health benefits to offer, and if I tried some of them, I could get even more out of the therapy than just IBS control.

      After reading some very good things about flax, I decided to try the Renew Life Fiber Smart, which is made from organic flax fiber. Besides the help with IBS, is also has probiotics, which can help the IBS even more, as well as help with digestion and regulating the intestinal flora. As a diabetic,


      sometimes I have a tendency to get yeast overgrowth, and probiotics have been a great help in preventing this problem. Aside from intestinal issues, and probiotics, fiber can help prevent heart disease, manage hunger and even help manage blood sugar. It is well worth the investment.

      Although this product is not cheap, it is a 45 day supply in the tub, so I a feel that it is worth it for the extra benefits. The nicest thing about it is that it has no taste. You take a scoop in the morning, and that’s it. I add it to a smoothie, or just stir in some almond milk withy sugar free chocolate syrup. While most fiber supplements have at least some sort of grainy taste, this is barely ...


      • detectable. Of course it thickens whatever it is in, but the trick is to put it in something that is supposed to be thick anyway, then it is not a problem.

        It has never caused any stomach upset or nausea, and I have never even had gas from it, although I have heard other people say that they did. As far as how well it works for the IBS, that is a mixed answer. For the constipation end of the problem, it works great. I never get constipated when I am taking the flax product. As for the other side of the spectrum, it doesn’t seem to work as well at “bulking” to prevent diarrhea. Since it is impossible to predict what phase of the condition I

        will be in from day to day, I can’t really rely on this as a therapy. I do think it is much more effective for constipation, so it someone were asking my recommendation on a fiber for that condition alone, I would recommend this one, hands down. It works very reliably, and much better than psyllium.

        Unfortunately, for me, I have to use something that will manage the problem no matter which way the pendulum swings. I like the idea of taking flax, and I may actually look into taking some of each instead of one or the other, but for this product by itself, it just doesn’t meet my needs. I would certainly recommend it to others though, as it is an excellent product that could give anyone great health benefits.
