  • Only 5% of people get enough dietary fiber; and despite decades of public health messaging, it remains one of the most deficient nutrients in our modern diets
  • Fermentable fiber is transformed by the microbiome into short chain fatty acids and other bioactives that regulate metabolism, immunity, and neurocognition
  • We report the results of a randomized placebo-controlled trial, evaluating the impact of a meal replacement shake containing a supplemental prebiotic fiber blend (resistant starch and beta glucan) on metabolic and quality of life measures
