    Funny you ask, because as the "gold standard", natural wheat bran is what every other fibre is measured against to judge if it has any effects on regularity. In other words, natural wheat bran is the best cereal fibre for regularity.

  4. How does natural wheat bran work?

    Think of natural wheat bran fibre as your digestive system cleaner. Since it isn't digested, it travels through your system. On the way it speeds up the movement of food, and sweeps away undigested materials. Just be sure you're drinking water to help it move along.

  5. What are the benefits of regularity?

    When you're regular you may feel lighter and happier. Plus, when you feel good, you look good.

  6. Do all high fibre cereals and bars have natural wheat bran?

  7. What's the difference between insoluble and soluble fibre?

    Insoluble and soluble fibre function very differently in the body and both are needed as part of a healthy diet. Insoluble fibre, like natural wheat bran fibre, doesn't dissolve in water. This is beneficial because it increases the bulk or weight of undigested food material and and speeds up the movement of this material through the digestive system helping to promote regularity.

    Soluble fibre is fibre that dissolves in water. When mixed with water in your body, the fibre turns into a gel-like substance. Generally, soluble fibres contribute to healthy blood cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels.
