Bendes psyllium fiber, do you recommend other fiber supplements and which ones?

For the top benefits of fiber from a supplementation perspective, along with psyllium I recommend oat and wheat bran. Oat bran, a soluble fiber is excellent for heart health, decreasing cholesterol, etc. and wheat bran, an insoluble fiber is wonderful for our intestinal health as it helps move food through the digestive tract and out of the body. These two fibers can be added to cereal or mixed in protein shakes. Start with a few tablespoons of each and then work your way up to 1/3 cup of each per day. One-third cup of oat bran will supply about 8 grams of fiber and the same amount of wheat bran will give you approximately 10 grams of fiber. This one addition to your diet will put you well on your way to the recommended 30-50 grams of fiber daily. The average American still only consumes about 12 grams of fiber daily.
