Kfibre™ Facts

  • Kfibre is a high nutrient fibre supplement
  • Diets high in fibre have been shown to improve general well-being, digestive health and to alleviate bowel discomfort.
  • Kfibre™ is made with 100% natural sugarcane, however KFSU removes 95% of the sugar.
  • No chemicals used in its production.

Precautions

  • Please drink more liquids when taking Kfibre™.
  • As your body adjusts to increase in fibre you may experience altered bowel movements.
  • Improper or overuse may result in discomfort.
  • Never ingest or inhale the powder directly.
  • Do not use if tamper evident heat seal is not intact.

  • Do not use in case of medically induced operation.

Trace Minerals and Antioxidants

Kfibre contains many trace minerals and antioxidants

Trace Vitamins – Symbio Laboratories

mcg/100g mcg/kg mcg/kg
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) 80 800 1.60 µg
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 9.6 96 0.19 µg
Vitamin B3 (Total) 180 1800 3.60 µg
VitaminB5 (Pantothenic acid) 85 850 1.70 µg
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 25 250 0.50 µg

Antioxidants (Not RDI,* no values reported) – Southern Cross University

Polyphenolics (CE) – µg 323.4
Polyphenolics (GAE) – µg 259.6

While these are trace level values, Kfibre is a whole of plant source, with minimal processing that retains micronutrients rather than stripping or reducing the whole plant value to a single constituent food additive. Additionally, the bioavailable forms and full colon digestive presence will increase the absorption of the micronutrients in the body

Chromium

Kfibre contains 65 % of the Adequate Daily Intake levels of the essential micronutrient Chromium which is known to enhance the action of insulin. Uncontrolled glucose levels in the body, which is generally seen in conjunction with carbohydrate heavy diets can lead to type II diabetes and obesity.

By enhancing the action of insulin with bioavailable chromium the body will more efficiently process glucose and affect feelings of satiety.

The diagram adjacent reflects the interaction of the chromium complex and insulin to improve glucose uptake

Silicon – Plant Source

Silicon is essential for bone health and connective tissue development and aids in the absorption of other minerals.

Sugarcane is known to absorb more Silicon than any other mineral nutrient and the table beside presents Kfibre ‘s analytical results of Bioavailable silicon.

Policosanols

Policosanols, and specifically Octacosanol, have been linked to health benefits for many years.

While the absolute benefits and research are still under debate a recent review of 22 studies involving nearly 1,900 people published in 2017, reported that sugar cane policosanol could significantly reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol and increase HDL “good” cholesterol.

Kfibre is still carrying out research on the value of the policosanol content before making any health claims in this area

Tricin – Glycaemic Index lowering phytochemistry & polyphenols

Through recent analytical results from Southern Cross University, Kfibre has confirmed levels of Tricin which is tied to a-amylase inhibition, a key enzyme involved in the breakdown of carbohydrates in food. This inhibition can effectively lower the glycaemic index (GI) of any carbohydrate containing meal. Peer reviewed research proposes that -amylase inhibitors display many potential health uses.

The polyphenol profile of the Kfibre retail product below presents the whole plant origin and preservation of the polyphenols through processing and in the context of weight management via the lowering of glycaemic index and modulation of blood glucose levels.

There are strong peaks at 5 & 7 representing flavonoid glycoside – tricin diglycoside, which is tied a-amylase inhibition, thus slowing, or restricting the digestion of starch to available carbohydrates.

The simple benefit is :

  • Lowering of Glycaemic Index (GI)
  • Reduction in post prandial Blood Glucose Levels (BGLs)
  • Promotion of healthy gut bacteria & digestion[3
