Acacia Fibre (Ayurvedic Digestion Support) Description
Acacia fibre is made by grinding up acacia gum, which is naturally produced by the acacia tree, an evergreen belonging to the legume family that is native to Africa and India. Consumed as a dietary supplement for its high soluble-fibre content, acacia powder can be taken in capsule or tablet form, or as a loose powder. It can help increase your fibre intake, and it may also contribute to the loss of body fat.
Increases Fibre Intake
Acacia powder is a good source of insoluble fibre, and it is commonly taken to increase fibre consumption and help alleviate constipation. A 1-tablespoon serving of the powder has 6 grams of fibre, which provides about 20 percent of the recommended dietary allowance, of fibre for adults. Acacia powder can help you get your daily recommended amount of fibre. A diet high in fibre is associated with lower blood cholesterol and a decreased risk of heart disease.
Using Acacia Fibre
Acacia powder can be consumed on its own as a supplement. It is important to consume the powder — as much as 1 tablespoon — with at least 8 ounces of fluids, such as water or juice. Because it is high in fibre, you need to make sure that you drink enough water throughout the day to reduce the risk of constipation.
Through dietary management, Acacia senegal helps relieve IBS symptoms, including diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain.
Acacia powder is a soluble fibre with proven prebiotic effects. Studies have shown that soluble fibre, as part of the diet, regulates 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, which in turn reduces bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from the digestive dysfunction of IBS.
