My quality of life was challenged by excessive stool elimination (10 to 20 times a day). I could not keep food in my system for more than 30 minutes. I felt constant urge/pressure. I had amazing results using miraFIBER caplets but they no longer make them. They have the powder, but I prefer the tablets/caplets. I believe the ingredient that is so beneficial to me is the maltodextrin. Other fiber supplements do not work. As I understand it, Maltodextrin is made from corn, rice, potato starch or wheat. Even though it comes from plants it is highly processed. I tried increasing my diet with rice, bananas, etc but nothing compares to taking just one of these tablets. For me, it really is a miracle.
What works for you? Avoiding trigger foods is not enough, nor is following the BRAT diet.
