Daily fiber intake is shown in research as one of the most important health requirements. However, optimum levels are rarely achieved, most Americans only consume about 15 g of fiber instead of the recommended 25 g of fiber for adult women and 38 g fiber for adult men (American Dietetic Association, 2008; Kranz et al., 2017). Eating enough fiber is important to our physical health but also our financial health. A Canadian research team discovered that eating enough dietary fiber enhances health and reduces costs for health care (Abdula et al., 2015). This conclusion aligned with the research of Schmier et al. in 2014. The position of the American Dietetic is based on epidemiologic studies showing fiber offers protection against several chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, including blood pressure, lipid levels, and inflammation (p. 1719-20; Gabrial et al., 2016; Cooper et al., 2017). Data also show a correlating relationship between dietary fiber and cancer with studies supporting the theory that dietary fibers offer protection against cancer (ADA, 2008, p. 1723).*
Be Regular is a global blend of dietary fiber that is comprised of indigenous organic whole seeds: Amaranth, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Chia and Millet (which some think of as also a grain). The Aztec people developed amaranth; the Incas raised Quinoa, while buckwheat was native in Asia, parts of Europe and the USA. Chia is a revered seed that is native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Millets are a group of indigenous small-seeded grasses, especially known in Africa and Asia but are cultivated and enjoyed all over the world.
These ancient seeds have been with us for thousands of years. The Be Regular five seeds are grown organically in the USA, and through a patented high pressure, heat-shearing process, the soluble fiber and nutrients of the five seeds are released to offer an ideal amount of plant-based protein, complex carbohydrates with low glycemic index, gentle dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, all easily digested.
