What is Sunfiber® GI?
Asynbiotic blend of clinically proven prebiotic fiber and probiotics that help maintain a healthy digestive balance.* Sunfiber® GI uses the award winning Sunfiber® brand of soluble dietary fiber and the clinically proven Bifidobacterium lactis.

What is Sunfiber®?
Sunfiber® GI contains 6 grams of Sunfiber®. It is an all natural truly regulating soluble dietary fiber derived from the guar bean that has an optimal gut transit time.* In addition to the numerous benefits of Sunfiber, it also acts as the perfect food source for the probiotics in Sunfiber® GI as well as increasing the helpful bacteria and decreasing the harmful bacteria already within our system.*
What are prebiotics?
These are food for the probiotics. You need these for your probiotics to thrive. However, it is important to choose the right prebiotic fiber that doesn’t result in excess gas, bloating and loose stools.
What are probiotics?
The human digestive tract harbors TRILLIONS of bacteria. The majority of these bacteria are beneficial and are given the name “probiotics”. The balance of these probiotics is key for us to remain healthy, but common factors often disrupt this balance, including diet, travel, medical therapy, stress and aging. This may lead to digestive discomfort as well as a weakened immune system. Supplementing with Probiotics can help replenish this good bacteria and support a healthy digestive and immune system.*
What is the probiotic used in Sunfiber® GI?
Sunfiber® GI contains 8 billion CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis (also referred to as B. lactis) at the time of manufacture. It works in harmony with our prebiotic Sunfiber and is extremely resistant to the pH and bile conditions within the gut. Probiotics are not only important for our digestive system, but also for our immune health, our mood and other bodily functions. B. lactis has a long history of safe use and has been clinically shown to improve immune functions and protect against inflammation.*
When should I take Sunfiber® GI?
Sunfiber may be taken at any time of the day, but is often recommended to take first thing in the morning to get your digestive system on track for a comfortable and healthy day. Take with your morning cereal, yogurt, smoothie or add to your water bottle to take with you on the go.
What’s the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Insoluble fiber creates the bulk in your stool. Good sources of insoluble fiber are grains, nuts, seeds and the skins of fruits. Soluble fiber dissolves in water. The right soluble fiber aids digestion, feeds beneficial bacteria, moderates glucose absorption, lowers cholesterol and helps you feel less hungry (increases satiety). But be careful. Some soluble fibers may lead to additional gas, bloating and worse: loose stools and diarrhea. The fiber used in Sunfiber® GI is a soluble, low-FODMAP fiber. It supports digestive health without causing excess gas or bloating.*
What is the difference between guar gum and guar fiber?
Guar gum is a water soluble carbohydrate derived from the guar plant seed. It is used throughout the food industry for its superior thickening, gelling, emulsifying, and stabilizing properties as a result of its high viscosity. While guar gum and guar fiber come from the same plant, guar fiber (Sunfiber®) has a low viscosity and is used to add fiber to various foods and dietary supplements.
What is the recommended dosage for fiber?
The current adequate intake for dietary fiber is 25 grams/day for women and 38 grams/day for men. Most of us get just 10 to 15 grams per day.
Is Sunfiber® GI Safe?
Sunfiber® GI contains 6 gams of Sunfiber and 8B CFU of B. lactis. Sunfiber has been affirmed as GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) by an expert panel at a level up to 60 grams per day and is approved as a fiber source by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada and other countries.
How much Sunfiber® GI should I consume?
The typical recommended single serving of Sunfiber® GI is 6 grams. The current adequate intake for dietary fiber is 25 grams/day for women and 38 grams/day for men. The daily amount of Sunfiber® GI that should be consumed by healthy people looking to meet the daily recommended level of fiber would be the difference between their fiber intake from food and that of the recommended fiber intake for men and women.
Is Sunfiber® GI a Natural Product?
Sunfiber® GI is 100% all natural. It contains Sunfiber (a plant-based fiber) and B. lactis, and nothing else. No preservatives or additives. Sunfiber® GI is Clean Label Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified and 100% Gluten free.
Can Sunfiber® GI be taken by pregnant or lactating women?
The all natural and safe ingredients used in Sunfiber® GI have been consumed by pregnant and lactating women for years, and it has been shown to be a safe way to improve regularity and reduce cramping and bloating.* As with any supplement, however, please consult with your health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can children take Sunfiber® GI?

What is the caloric value of Sunfiber® GI?
Each serving of Sunfiber contains just 10 calories.
What are FODMAPs?
Sunfiber® GI is a Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™ product. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Disaccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are a group of dietary sugars which are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. They are known to cause gas related pain, intestinal distention and constipation and/or diarrhea in people suffering from functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Low FODMAP diets help to reduce these symptoms. Because many high-fiber foods are also high in FODMAPs, people with FGID and IBS typically have difficulty meeting the recommended daily intake of 25 to 30 grams of fiber in their diets. That means they may not get enough soluble fiber which is essential for gut health and regularity. Sunfiber® GI is proud to be the first prebiotic fiber and probiotic blend to achieve Low FODMAP certification.
Can Sunfiber Gi be added to hot foods and liquids?
Sunfiber GI is tasteless and mixes easily into many foods and beverages. The true regulating benefits of Sunfiber GI, which are delivered from the soluble prebiotic fiber, are very heat and acid stable and can be added to most any food or beverage. The temperature of hot foods and liquids, however, can decrease the active probiotics within Sunfiber GI, and thus it is typically recommended to add Sunfiber GI to foods and beverages that are lukewarm or cooler (such as water, smoothies, juices, cereal and yogurt).
How should Sunfiber® GI be kept?
Sunfiber® GI contains highly shelf stable probiotics. However, as with all probiotics they should be kept in a cool and dry place. Keep away from excess light, heat and moisture. May be refrigerated if desired.
