I LOVE gummy bears and missed them terribly on keto...until I found sugar-free fiber gummies. I use a regular multivitamin and have two of these as a "treat." They're two net carbs per two gummies (the picture on Amazon says they're zero carb, but the actual bottle says two. Here's an amazon link for them:

u/InsipidCelebrity · 12 pointsr/antiMLM

You can buy enteric-coated peppermint capsules for much less at a health food store.

Here's what I use

u/ethira · 10 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hey all! Some of y’all may have saw my older post, so it’s a pleasure to come back in only just two weeks with some progress. I’ve had a shift in routine since then. What you see is flat red marks, and just two raised bumps.

First of all, I’d like to thank those that recommended Azelaic acid because holy moly I think it made a big difference. And I also feel the same about the benzoyl peroxide contact therapy. There was a point where I dropped my BHA and AHA and just used Melazepam morning and night for a few days, but then I learned that you get the same results just using it once a day. I now alternate my BHA and AHA in the evenings.

Another thing I started was taking Spearmint Capsules! I haven’t been taking them long enough to say they’re working, but I will say that I’m thankful another breakout hasn’t tarnished my progress again yet. (Knock on wood)

I actually haven’t visited the derm like many recommended because I really wanted to try the spearmint capsules first to see if they could control my hormonal acne alongside my BC. If my skin foils me again, I’m off to the derm for sure.

Another oral product I’m taking is this women’s vaginal probiotic. Even though it’s targeted towards women’s health, it contains probiotic strains beneficial for targeting acne according to Simple Skincare Science.

Lastly, I definitely prefer Skinlex’s formulation of niacinamide over TO’s. There’s really nice beneficial ingredients, and it’s only $13.60!



• Dr. Song’s 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide gel when I wake up (wait for ten minutes and then wash off)
• Vanicream Gentle Cleanser
• Melazepam (20% Azelaic acid cream)
• Habo Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream mixed with a couple pumps of Skinlex 2% Alpha-Arbutin Serum (includes Niacinamide and MAP Vitamin C)
• Cerave in the tub
• Biore UV bright milk SPF 50+ (pink bottle)


• Remove makeup with Kose softymo speedy cleansing oil
• Vanicream Gentle Cleanser
• alternate nights between stridex in the red box and 10% Mandelic acid serum
• Habo Labo Skin plumping gel cream mixed with the Skinlex 2% Alpha-arbutin
• Cerave in the tub

Every other night:

• De la Cruz 10% Sulphur ointment (apply to face and wash off after 15 min)


• MUAC 40% mandelic acid chemical peel

• After my chemical peel, I’ll add a couple pumps of Skinlex 10% Niacinamide serum to my Habo Labo skin plumping gel cream instead of using the 2% Alpha Arbutin

u/Redcrux · 7 pointsr/tifu

One spoonful of that in your morning coffee will have you regular as a clock. Can't taste it whatsoever

u/Vihzel · 6 pointsr/gaybros

Have you ever tried psyllium husk capsules? You can buy them easily from Amazon, which would be the cheapest route. I took this, and my bowel movements became shockingly clean. Literally like one, two, maybe three wipes at most.

No matter how much regular fiber I was consuming (I eat a lot of whole grains, whole fruits, and vegetables), my bowel movements didn't compare to how clean they were when I was taking the psyllium husk capsules.

Those capsules are basically the same capsules you can find specifically targeted to gay men, albeit much cheaper.

My only real concern is how my body would hold up if I were to use that amount of psyllium husk fiber per day for a long period of time. What's weird is that some reputable companies will state that it's not for long term use, while other reputable companies will not have that warning label at all even though they have identical daily fiber intakes. After much research, it seems to me that companies that have higher doses of psyllium husk within fewer capsules have the warning while companies that have smaller doses of psyllium husk in more capsules don't have the warning. Downside of the latter is having to take more capsules per day, which would be annoying.

I did have one side effect from taking psyllium husk capsules, and that was pretty strong stomach pain, but that was due to not taking the recommended amount per day I believe. When I took the recommend dosage amount, the pain was nonexistent. What was really great was that I had no bloating at all as you might expect from a fiber pill. It seems to me that psyllium husk does not cause bloating because it doesn't release gases as it simply expands in your body and doesn't get digested by the bacteria.

u/ockhams-razor · 5 pointsr/soylent

There are two essential suppliments I take each day to balance out any soylent issues:

  1. a fiber supplement
  2. a probiotic supplement

    If you take these daily, you could be right as rain

    Here are links to the actual supplements I take:

u/WerkRoom · 5 pointsr/TooAfraidToAsk

Here you go, buddy. This this is absolute magic. It cleans out your entire digestive track and you’re basically ready for a good pounding at any time, even if you choose not clean out by using a douche or enema.

It’s the best $17 any butt sex-loving person will ever spend on themselves.

You’re welcome.

u/HoquesPoques · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use this supplement and just take one pill at night, I’m assuming similar pills would have similar effects though.

u/110Baud · 3 pointsr/diabetes

Eating more fiber will definitely help you get your shit together :). I've had chronic irritable bowel syndrome for years, and found that acacia gum powder pretty much prevents any problems. IBS sufferers have found that it helps keep things stable and regular whether you suffer from diarrhea or constipation. Other gum powders like dextrin can also work well, but acacia is good because it's totally tasteless, odorless, and dissolves well in both hot and cold drinks (but nothing carbonated) without thickening the liquid. It basically just disappears into the drink and you can't tell it's there. I take a tablespoon in a glass of Crystal Light 3 times a day, and it has no effect on my BGs at all since it's totally nondigestable (which is the point).

u/mmurph · 3 pointsr/askgaybros
  • Being "regular" - those activia type yogurts can help
  • Good diet in general (no fried, oily food, and avoid "low fat" processed food which has weird oil substitutes)
  • lots of water all day, everyday
  • lots and lots of fiber (take a supplement twice a day - i love these and they work really well but are pretty overpriced.)
  • wet wipes
  • Know your body (if you're not feeling right then you're not on the market).
u/goodnightloom · 3 pointsr/PCOS

I've been taking [this one] ( from Amazon but to be fair that's the only one I've tried.

u/climb-high · 3 pointsr/ibs

Definitely self experiment. I've been tormented by most fibers but soluble fiber tends to be more gentle on a damaged gut.

This is the only fiber I've ever tolerated well. Heather's Tummy Fiber - Organic Acacia Senegal (16 oz) for IBS
A good amount of people say taking the max dose of 5tbs per day actually stopped their diarrhea long-term. Could be an interesting experiment.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/C_S_T

I am sooo incredibly jealous that you spent time in Big Sur recently.

You also managed to select every show that I absolutely despise and many that I refuse to watch as your examples. Interesting.

I clicked on your links and read your story...did you know that people can be highly sensitive to corn syrup and GMO corn products? That shit is in everything...anyway people who have a sensitivity display all the symptoms of what looks like slow poisoning (which it probably is)...and your doctor will never tell you about THAT. It is helpful to keep an exceedingly detailed food diary along with your bodies symptomatic responses. Pretty easy to see the culprit after one or two weeks.

Cut it out of your life (so difficult when it is corn syrup that shit is in EVERYTHING), take daily acidophilus; I take the cheapo 'gummy bear kind'; problem solved; no more illness (poisoning); no more suffering.

{sarc} It is nice of the Dr not to mention that you are suffering the same symptoms as slow poisoning...sometimes I wonder if they get paid to keep us ignorant of the basic functions of the body or if the plot extends farther in the sense that even their basic education in medical school no longer covers such simple matters as long term poisoning so that their masters ASSES can be covered while they poison people.

Enteric coated peppermint oil can help with any pain in the meantime. One or two will cut any suffering in half or eliminate it completely.

This is my favorite kind (cheaper online):

However nothing will help permanently unless you isolate your sensitivity and eliminate it from your diet. I cheat occasionally and suffer the consequences according to the extent of my transgression. For example, having a 16 ounce Coke will throw me into significant suffering for at least 6 hours. What did I expect from something that can clean all the rust off old car parts when they are soaked in it? IDK...probably not a 'food product' though.

Sorry to go so 'off topic' but I can't bear to see people suffering and I feel overwhelming need to share, if there is any possibility I can help.

u/420greg · 3 pointsr/keto

I take these.

Net 0 carbs. 5 grams - 5 carbs from fiber.

u/Hai_kitteh_mow · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Woo! Ill one up it and add a link to the one that I love! One a day :)

u/jredmond · 3 pointsr/askgaybros

Fiber gummies. 5g fiber per dose, and rather tasty as well.

u/whenwillthewaitend · 2 pointsr/TFABGrads

I got some fiber gummies and that helped. These have been my personal favorites so far. My OB also said it was OK to take Colace and Miralax. A half dose of Miralax with a full glass of water and a Colace usually gets things moving for me.

Pregnancy constipation is not fun at all. I'd only been constipated twice in my life prior to pregnancy so I naively thought I'd be able to avoid pregnancy constipation. Nope, not so.

ETA: My OB never gave specifics on water goals. She just said to make water "your new best friend" and to "always have a glass/bottle/whatever with you and be sipping on it." My friend's OB told her that you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces each day. So if you way 140 pounds you should be drinking 70 ounces of water every day.

u/kirker187 · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

Glucomannan powder here

u/itsaphilodendron · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

I just get mine from Amazon, I wasn't particular about brand (as long as they're spearmint not peppermint!); I'm in the UK but looks like the ones I get are also in the US ( I take one tablet twice a day.


Otherwise looks like everyone else has given good advice but my tactic would be to focus on getting very good at covering up - I was in my friend's wedding a few months ago and my skin was a mess but I had my concealing skills honed so it ended up difficult to even notice (but allow maybe more time for getting ready on the day so you can really take time over it!).

u/throwaway318210 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

First things first, check out that link. It explains which birth control pills are good for acne and which will exacerbate it (YMMV of course). It's possible that your BC is not one that's good for acne. If this is the case, I'd recommend asking your doctor to switch you to a different one, the best two I think are ortho-tri cyclen and yasmin.

Other than that, you could also try asking your doctor for spironolactone. It's an anti-androgenic medication that's often prescribed for hormonal acne. Lastly, you should DEFINITELY try spearmint tea. That's what I did, and it helped like crazy. Spearmint is anti-androgenic, too, there have been studies on it so it's not an old wives tale or anything like that. I personally could never get myself to drink 1-2 cups of spearmint tea a day, so I take them in capsule form instead, which is the same thing. I like this one.

I've also noticed that my hormonal acne gets better when I'm using my finacea prescription, which I use for rosacea. At the very least, finacea is really good for getting rid of the red marks leftover by hormonal breakouts.

u/CheezusChrist · 2 pointsr/ibs

I've been taking this fiber supplement for about two weeks now and haven't had diarrhea since. I still have yet to find my ideal dose (I have mixed with excruciating cramps), but I'm very happy with how things are going so far. Usually drinking alcohol gives me bad diarrhea the following day, but I've had a couple nights of drinking since starting taking this fiber and had one solid BM the next day. Again, I've only been taking it for about two weeks, so I'm not sure how it will hold up long term, but it's worth a shot, right?

u/charmingdot · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I tried this but kept forgetting to drink the tea, so I started taking spearmint capsules (Swanson) instead. It seems to be the only thing so far to actually stop my hormonal chin acne; too bad the capsules now seem to be out of stock everywhere. I hope they haven't been discontinued. (Edit: I mean in the UK, they may still be available in US.)

u/hVnL · 2 pointsr/ibs

Apple cider vinegar is low FODMAP:

Avoiding FODMAP should be something done, in my opinion, short-term to reduce symptoms. I do not think it is a good strategy long-term.
You must know that a lot of prebiotics are FODMAP, such as onion/garlic (these contain oligosacharides). Yet for me these oligosacharides are very important now since they help establish a healthy gut flora. They "feed" bacteria.
I personally am not a big fan of FODMAP avoidance. For me it didn't work. It might work for others, I strongly recommend to test things yourself. Since IBS is very complex everyone reacts differently.

I am supplementing with inulin as one of my prebiotics. This is a "pure" FODMAP. It caused me some bloating and gas yes. But I reduced the dosage, and started building up slowly. Within a few days I could already handle a couple grams more of inulin. Basically you are letting your garden of bacteria get accustomed to having a good amount to eat. (When they eat they produce gas).
Inulin raises beneficial bacteria including akkermansia / roseburia etc. These are very beneficial for a healthy gut flora.

There has been done a lot of research with adding prebiotics to a diet. They seem to greatly improve the health of the host. They do this by producing substances (short chain fatty acids) like butyrate, which have a repairing influence on the colon and other organs.

A very gentle prebiotic seems to be the acacia gum fiber. Atleast from what I read in amazon reviews about it check:
I also use this since a bit and it does help me into fixing that last 10%.

You should know that this is a high FODMAP thing. (Acacia gum). Yet look at the reviews and the positive effects they have for many people. I think a lot of people can greatly benefit from slowly building up with some prebiotics.

The research also found a lot of benefits from taking prebiotics such as inulin:

If you do decide to try out prebiotics, please make sure you start very very very low dosage!!!! There have been people starting out way too big getting huge bowel pains. (As in, typical huge IBS "attacks")

For probiotics I'd recommend things like sauerkraut/kimchi/kefir/kvass. (also start very slow, and make sure they're not heated/pasteurized. best is to make your own at home, it's easy! just check on google: "how to make x")

From my "journey" to fix this problem the best thing for me was to throw all "theories" out of the window, and just started experimenting.

u/socphd · 2 pointsr/InfertilityBabies

Razz! You're here, this is excellent.

OK, I have some limited info that might be helpful regarding your questions. First of all, don't force yourself to eat things that are unpalatable. Try to substitute, if you can, with other vegetables, and realize that baby is getting what s/he needs from you, especially if you're taking a prenatal. I really, really enjoyed peanut butter and crackers. Like, in a big way. Two jars a week.

I cry at commercials and maudlin thoughts now. So, no, crying at a meal seems perfectly normal. It'll pass.

When I heard the heartbeat for the first time, I just remember thinking, Thank God! No more IVF for a while! It wasn't until she really looked like a human at 12 weeks that I got more attached. And, frankly, I only really thought of her as a real person when I could start to feel her moving (around 19-21 weeks). Whatever you're feeling is OK. Be patient with your post-infertility PTSD, if you think you might have a little. That's what we're all here for.

Um, regarding the Crinone - yeaaaah, never saw black. BUT, I did some googling, and some other boards that shall remain nameless seem to say that it's old stuff that is a week or two old that is just discharging. So, seems harmless.

Two pieces of unsolicited advice? Take lots of naps and eat lots of Fiber Gummies ( so you stay regular. I swear by those damn sugar-free bears.

Vitafusion sugar-free Fiber Gummies. 5g of soluble fiber per serving, and less than 1 gram of sugar alcohols. They seem to work pretty awesome!

u/beanalicious1 · 2 pointsr/keto

This is what I used/own.

u/sultrypickle · 2 pointsr/ibs

Yes! I've had a similar experience. I recently got this book, it's mostly a cookbook but in the beginning thoroughly discusses IBS triggers, what's safe and what to avoid. The biggest things are fat and insoluble fiber.

The woman also sells this supplement that is pure soluble fiber called Heathers Tummy Fiber which I have found has helped me significantly.

I would check it out and see what you think.... the woman who wrote it is not a doctor or anything but is an IBS sufferer and explains how she did a lot of her own research into the topic herself. I've found the advice and info in this book to match much closer to my experiences than the advice to cut out fodmaps/gluten/dairy/whatever else.

I also saw an actual dietician for the first time recently and she also suggested a low fiber diet and said that the evidence is still mixed on the low fodmap diet.

Don't buy the powder because there have been people who use the powder and the fiber expands in their throat causing choking. I usually take two capsules before I eat or whenever I feel hungry and it suppresses my appetite.

u/nothrowingawaymyshot · 2 pointsr/loseit

A good majority of people do not get enough fiber intake in their day. I know it's not easy, but it might help to find a few fiber sources that you enjoy eating as that will help you out tremendously.

If you're getting the right amount of water per day, getting in the right amount of fiber, and limiting your food intake 3-4 hours before going to sleep, that will help you with regularity in a big way.

Also are amazing.

u/maralieus · 2 pointsr/keto

Try heathers tummy fiber. Just put in 1 tablespoon into warm water, stir for a minute and drink. I took it for just the added fiber during keto, but pretty much ALL the reviews were about it helping IBS. Its like 13 bucks on Amazon. Good luck!

u/glass_magnolia · 2 pointsr/ibs

I don't know what you have tried or haven't tried. But try applying some of this to your tummy before eating. It's natural and it's been giving me great relief. It can be found on amazon too.

Now that we get some digestive relief in there, let's see about getting things moving.

This is good, organic fiber. It may take a while to build up to the dosage you need.( In the meantime, if you are having a bad episode try a tblsp or two or milk of magnesia to get you some relief. )

Now with IBS, diet has a lot to do with it. Try an elimination diet like the the Low FODMAP diet to rule out trigger foods.

I also take time to sit quietly in the evening and meditate. Stress and ibs aggravate each other. At least in myself. There's no such thing as overkill when it comes to looking after your mental well being.

I have suffered for years with IBS-C. I really hope some of the info I'm giving you helps.

u/notthatbigbrother · 2 pointsr/AnalFissures

I am not a doctor, just a patient.

Stay hydrated. Figure out why you are straining and start making changes to your diet as soon as possible. Not enough fiber? Get some psyllium husk tablets. Hard stool? Colace(stool softener) I recommend both. It is extremely important to stay hydrated. Dehydration while on any of those will make bowel movements worse. Try to take a shower after every bowel movement, but avoid soap. You do not want to make the same mistake as me and let your skin dry out. If you do use soap I recommend vaseline or a&d ointment after a wash. Cold water may feel relaxing and numb the pain, but remember to do warm water sitz baths as well. The key to healing is increasing blood flow. The blood flow is low in the rectum so healing can take quite some time. Despite how much blood you might see after a bowel movement. Applying heat will increase blood flow. Unfortunately for you the pain from the fissure comes from your sphincter spasming and it will be hard to stop that without prescription medication. You might have some success with lidocaine, but that can be costly(see Dr. Butlers cream). Over the counter pain medicine will help as well. Avoid opioids(can cause constipation). True pain relief comes with the nitroglycerin ointment. Which also increases blood flow to the area and relaxes the muscle. Yes get the baby wipes, but I would avoid the neosporin and get the dr. butlers cream while you wait for an appointment to get the nitroglycerin. I highly recommend getting the nitro. Also look into lifting your legs while on the toilet into a squatting position. Don't wait on getting treatment for this. Although not life threatening if you wait and it gets worse you will regret it, trust me. Make an appointment to see a doctor/specialist if you can afford it. Maybe look into fasting for a day or two, or even intermittent fasting. Give your fissure some time to start healing before irritating it again with another bowel movement. You can't stop pooping, but you can limit how much you do it. If you do fast do some research on keeping your electrolytes in check. Like I said you do not want to become dehydrated. Good luck and stay hydrated!

Heather’s Tummy Fiber

From this blog:

Personally, I have found Heather’s Tummy Fiber to be a very effective aid in improving digestion. Whether your primary concern is constipation or diarrhea, this gentle fiber supplement can help you. While I’m not typically a huge advocate of fiber supplements because they tend to make symptoms worse, Heather’s Tummy Fiber is different. It uses a very high quality acacia senegal fiber, which is a type of soluble fiber. Many fiber supplements use insoluble fiber, which can cause an increase in bloating, gas, and cramps. This fiber does not contain any IBS triggers, such as psyllium, citric acid, insoluble fiber, artificial sweeteners, gluten, and FODMAP’s. It mixes very easily in water, and it has a prebiotic effect that increases good gut flora.

It's on amazon prime too.

Informed Consent Clinics might work with out letters etc. Depending on where you live you may can get a prescription rather quickly since you are already diying. On my post many have said because they mentioned DIYING to their therapist it sped up the process of getting a reference to an endo. However, they also told me to be very careful as not every therapist will be open and willing to hear out Trans people or take them seriously. Mentioning DIYING to the wrong therapist In the wrong area could get you in trouble. I guess it would depend on where you live, and who you are seeing. Its really quite unfortunate that there are so many gates we have to go through just to be ourselves. I agree with you though, DIYING IS SOOOOOO STRESSFUL. I have been succumbed to taking multiples of these because i have run out of hormones (spearmint has been proven to be an effect anti androgen.)

u/lordkiwi · 1 pointr/askscience

I am quite positive that some nutrients are more biologically available due to the action of intestinal bacteria however I cant remember which ones. I think you should first define the weight your talking about. I think it this case you could have weight gain from fluid retention from swelling and inflammation, weight loss from fluid loss from diarrhea. you can have both going on at once. Weight loss as in the release or storage of lipids by fat cells can also be influenced by gut bacteria. Bacteria can interfere with the response to leptin causing weight gain. Now your question about disrupting. There are big issues with that. There are hundreds of different bacteria and yeast in your system some are beneficial some are pathogenic some others are beneficial until there are to many then they become pathogenic. Not to mention disrupting the bacteria with anti-biotics can lead to a Yeast imbalance as like candida are not bacteria but fungus. Yeast imbalances are also not simple to treat because yeast are more like animals then they are like bacteria anti-fungal agents are as toxic to people as they are to yeast. If you want to effect your gut balance with out doing something radical I suggest you try a month or two of something like Candida support. Its more of a yeast suppresent then having anything strong enough in it to kill them outright. Take Probiotics to increase the quantity of supportive strains and prebiotic fiber to feed the probiotics

u/silly-hats-only · 1 pointr/keto

These are the gummies.

u/icyrae · 1 pointr/pregnant

I use those and take an iron. I say go for it because the iron pill is significantly smaller than the horse pills that most prenatal swallowables are, and you'll get better absorption taking a prenatal at one end of the day and iron at the other.

Another option is (if you have the energy to cook, bless you) to cook everything in a cast iron pan. I have a friend who swears by that for getting enough iron in her system.

Edit: as far as iron goes, my doc called in a prescription for me and that's what I take: ferrous sulfate 325MG (5GR) tablets.

I also HIGHLY recommend fiber gummies as well. I take these. I've had hemorrhoids before pregnancy (keto/paleo without realizing the need for lots of fiber) and it was so not fun. Taking the fiber gummies has kept me regular and so far prevented any hemorrhoids at 32 weeks, and I'm hoping it continues to not be an issue.

It does have a bit of a green taste, but I mix it into my morning protein shake and have just grown accustom to the taste. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I don't know what to tell you. I haven't had any real problems with this. If I've had a tad too much meat/cheese sometimes I'll take a few Fiber Gummies before bed. But if the psyllium isn't working for you I can't imagine why these would... I agree with the other posters. Doctor time!

Sugar free gummy bears gives people the shits/excessive farting. They're infamous for it:

> In short, I did indeed have increased regularity, but I had the horrible side-effect of increased gas to boot. So much so that I started using Gas-x and Beano to fix the issue, which didn't work. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was making me soooooo very gassy until I read the label which warned of the possible side effect. The product label recommends reducing the number of gummies, but I found ONE was one to many. They went into the garbage, and my gas issues went the way of the dinosaurs.

Stop eating them and my guess is that you'll be fine

In addition to my morning electrolyte drink, I mix in Heather's Tummy Fiber. I'm not sure if it makes a big difference for me, as I've been using it since I started keto, but people with digestive problems swear by it.

Here are links, if you're interested:

Two things that come to mind:

- How much metamucil are you taking? It looks like you can take up to 2 rounded teaspoons 3X per day, per the label. I would think about (gradually) moving up to that amount and see what happens. Just take 2 tsp with each meal (you could experiment whether before vs after vs during makes any difference). Move up gradually, not suddenly, from whatever you are taking now.

- You could try some of the other fiber products that are supposed to do well with IBS, to see if they are any better or worse. They are generally soluble type fiber. Examples are something with Sunfiber (one example) and Heather's Tummy Fiber.

You're very welcome! For symptoms I've also used tramadol for pain and Zofran for nausea, though insurance is picky about how much you get per month. Bentyl is also used for pain due to spasm. Research has also show accupuncture helps about 80% of people with some level of symptom relief. I also take peppermint oil capsules 3x daily to help and I really like it. This is what I take:

Here is a link to find a motility specialist near you:

Also I recommend reading the book "Living Well with Gastroparesis" by Crystal Saltrelli. It's got a lot of good information.

> my goal is not to gain excessive muscle mass

Don't worry, it doesn't happen by accident

Here are some tips from a random googled website.

> Avoid Sugar Alcohol's, most ending in -tol

> Add Fiber

> Avoid making it frothy by blending

> Slow down drinking it.

My suggestion is use whatever you like in taste and whatever you can afford, and add some fiber to it. You can probably find a fiber source from anywhere, but I add a teaspoon of fiber (5grams) for each 30 grams of protein. Other fiber in your diet should improve it as well.

Saw your post from r/new and wondered why you would want immediate effect from magnesium, since I don't think it's supposed to work that way. I thought it did, since I was taking it to help with your IBS, but I found taking the daily recommended of 500mg from a multimineral tablet was enough if I added some more fiber to my diet.

Do two tablespoons of it with one of my meals and it's enough. Good luck, reply if you want more info.

u/MJU1983 · 1 pointr/gaybros

I've had my eye on these for a while and the reviews are great. Haven't bought them yet. I use ground flaxseed daily on my morning greek yogurt. What is in those pills will work for sure: Psyllium Husk, Chia Seeds/Chia Seed Powder, Flaxseed Powder. Good luck!

This is an awesome contest, thank you! All of mine are under $100!

  1. Atop my list are these sinfully comfortable and cute flats. I've posted about them on this sub before. They're all rubber/silicone (so they're not stiff anywhere at all), made from recycled materials, completely waterproof, easy to wash and clean (they can be washed in the dishwasher), and unbelievably comfy. They won't hurt your ankles and they have a "massage arch" so that they don't hurt the bottoms of your feet. Everyone needs a pair. This company makes flats, sandals, sling-backs, wedges! Even if I don't win this contest, I wholeheartedly recommend that you check these out.

  2. Next would be this jar of fiber. Lol so glamorous. Seriously, fiber is so good for you. For your heart, for your system, for your cholesterol, etc. I try and get most of my recommended fiber everyday and I rely on a supplement for that.

  3. Then this hard drive! This one will mostly be for my work/internship stuff. I'm so afraid to lose the work that I do on my laptop v. on my desktop, so this will be nice peace of mind!

  4. This super cool cutting board that extends to fit over a kitchen sink! And a silicone pouch for separating the food! Too cool and a kitchen staple! I've seen these in use and they're so handy.

Vitafusion Fiber Gummies:

They are also good when you crave something sweet... 2 little gummy cubes have 5 grams of fiber and no sugar. And if you go overboard on them, you will pay dearly. They are "self limiting" :D

u/rararashishboomba · 1 pointr/opiates

The fiber supplement thats always worked for me is this . If you take it daily it’s like $30 a month but I swear it keeps me regular like I’m not even on opiates at all. Plus, it’s all natural and not a chemical laxative which in my opinion is a huge deal. Miralax or duralax are really not made to be taken every single day and they tend to make me dehydrated.

u/meretalk · 1 pointr/WTF

I've found that a good probiotic, Heather's Tummy fiber, and going primal has eliminated that vast majority of my problems. Not 100%, but waaaaaaay better than it used to be.

u/someredditorguy · 1 pointr/keto

Everyone's talking vegetables or tortillas. Why is there no mention yet of fiber supplements? The best I had before was Cirucel, in powder -mixed-with-water form. That seemed to be a good one. That gets tedious though, and I've switched to these fiber gummies. They taste like gummy bears, and I take two a day and stay pretty regular. (I buy them at Sam's or Costco)

u/kasittig · 1 pointr/xxfitness

I take 5 of these with every meal - I don't really aim for a particular goal but this really helps my high protein / low carb diet not be murder on my intestines!

u/tentacruel_porn · 1 pointr/proED

I'm taking these. They don't have probiotics in them, but they're 10 cals for 5g of fibre.

u/dankwank · 1 pointr/TopsAndBottoms

Relatively new to bottom here. I just stopped eating fast food and take these fiber chewables, getting cleaned up had been a breeze.

Edit: link to fiber gummies

u/thapol · 1 pointr/soylent

You could also use a more 'basic' fiber source; something like this. It's a little more expensive, but a much smaller grain that could help with consistency. You'll probably only need about 5g to 10g to help with satiation from your base recipe.

u/dfltr · 1 pointr/Fitness

It's available on Amazon for a pretty decent price. Amazon's actually really good if you're picky about getting an specific brand of any given supplement.

u/NEVERDOUBTED · 0 pointsr/flying

There is an organic (OTC) stone removal supplement on Amazon that gets a lot of good reviews. Never used it but the reviews are interesting.

I think when it comes to single pilot flight, you have to consider what medical circumstances could keep you from flying the plane and address each of them proactively. If this means taking or doing something that flushed the stones, once a year or so, then it might be worth it.

Just as much as your risk for a heart attack should be accessed as well.

I heard great things about Pure for Men: Pure for Men - 120 Capsules

u/ZeusThunder369 · -6 pointsr/lowcarb

I don't know what kind of diet that is, but it isn't low carb. It sounds like she is trying to do a 0 carb diet instead of a low carb diet. Avoiding all grains is great, and seeds aren't all that important. Veggies, nuts, and fruits should NOT be avoided though.

"Low" should be less than 50 carbs a day. If one really wants to go extreme with it, less than 30 could work. Also, she knows that carbs from dietary fiber don't "count" right?

If she insists on not eating any of the above things at all, then she'll just have to go with artificial fiber supplements. I suggest these. I just take two a day, but if I was literally not eating any vegetables, fruits, or nuts then I'd probably have 8 a day.
