Herbalife Multifibre - Review
What are the benefits? How to use it and what does it taste like?
What is it?
Basically, it is a way to increase your fibre in taking, in our modern lifestyle it is believed through research that we only get 20% of the fibre we need per day. Herbalife's Multifibre is an easy way to remedy that. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre.
Soluble fibre: This type of fibre dissolves in water to form a gel-like material. It can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Soluble fibre is found in oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium.
Insoluble Fibre: This type of fibre promotes the movement of material through your digestive system and increases stool bulk, so it can be of benefit to those who struggle with constipation or irregular stools. Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts, beans and vegetables, such as cauliflower, green beans and potatoes, are good sources of insoluble fibre.
What is in it?
The multifibre uses 6 fibre sources:
What are the benefits?
Normalises Bowel movement - Dietary fibre increases the weight and size of your stool and softens it. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing your chance of constipation. If you have loose, watery stools, fibre may help to solidify the stool because it absorbs water and adds bulk to stool.
Helps maintain Healthy Bowel movement - A high-fibre diet may lower your risk of developing haemorrhoids and small pouches in your colon (diverticular disease). Studies have also found that a high-fibre diet likely lowers the risk of colorectal cancer. Some fibre is fermented in the colon. Researchers are looking at how this may play a role in preventing diseases of the colon.
Lowers Cholesterol Levels - In people with diabetes, fibre — particularly soluble fibre — can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels. A healthy diet that includes insoluble fibre may also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Helps with healthy weight - High-fiber foods tend to be more filling than low-fibre foods, so you're likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer. And high-fibre foods tend to take longer to eat and to be less "energy-dense," which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food.
Helps you live longer - Studies suggest that increasing your dietary fibre intake — especially cereal fibre — is associated with a reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and all cancers.
How to use it and what does it taste like?
There are 2 choices when it comes to Herbalife's Mutlifibre.
Option 1: Powder form
Option 2: Pill form
With the powder form, you add 1 scoop (6.8g) to 150ml cold water and shake it in a hand shaker. On its own, it does not taste like much but has an undertone of apple to it. If you add it to a Formula 1 Shake it just tastes like whatever flavour shake you use. For the Ultimate hard punch breakfast recipe:
Add 1 Scoop of multifibre, 1 Scoop Protein Drink Mix, 1/2 teaspoon Instant Herbal Beverage and 2 Scoops Formula 1 shake to a hand shaker or blender. Shake or blend and you have the ultimate breakfast that not only keeps you full beyond lunch but packs a lot of nutrients and boost your energy and focus levels.
Pill form does not taste like much and you are meant to take 2 pills with every meal. Which translates to 6 pills a day. There is 180 in a bottle.
I used to suffer from constipation and since I started using Herbalife's Multifibre I have not had any constipation issues.
