Through dietary management, Acacia senegal helps relieve IBS symptoms, including diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain.
A medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. Acacia senegal is a natural (not synthetic) whole food soluble fiber with a clinically proven prebiotic effect. Studies show that soluble fiber, as part of the diet, helps regulate bowel motility (alleviating both diarrhea and constipation), and relieves abdominal pain from IBS. Acacia senegal’s prebiotic effect stimulates the growth of healthy gut flora for ideal bowel stability, which can reduce bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from IBS.
Heather’s Tummy Fiber is unique, because it has a good gastrointestinal tolerance and a proven significantly bifidogenic effect. Heather’s Tummy Fiber is formulated specifically for the dietary management of IBS and improved bowel stability.

Start with 1/2 packet, twice daily. Add to empty cup, then stir with a fork as you gradually add room temperature liquid. Let rest for a minute, stir again to completely dissolve. Does not dissolve well in boiling hot or ice cold liquids, but once fiber is liquified you can boil or chill beverage. Or, stir into any moist food.
Gradually increase your dose. Add an extra packet every 3-5 days and keep increasing until symptoms stabilize. Use twice daily for best results.
