Gut action is not really a fun, colorful or sexy topic to discuss. However, the makers of the brand “Regular Girl” pretty much nailed the brief. The name is so smart and the branding and packaging is cute, pink and happy.
Regular Girl is “a synbiotic blend of clinically proven prebiotic fiber and probiotics that help maintain a healthy digestive balance”. The blend “uses the Sunfiber brand of soluble dietary fiber and the clinically proven Bifidobacterium lactis”.
We were very happy to learn that the product is a Monash University Low FODMAP Certified and subtitle to consume as part of the Low FODMAP Diet.
The Low FODMAP Diet aims to reduce and manage symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). According to estimations, 1 in 7 people suffer from IBS worldwide. IBS symptoms include abdominal bloating or pain, excess wind, nausea, diarrhea and constipation (or a combination of both). According to research, the FODMAP Diet, which was created by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, can help 75% of IBS patients. That is 3 of 4 people who suffer from IBS! In fact, the FODMAP Diet is recognised internationally by leading medical professionals as the best dietary treatment for the management of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
According to the company, the uniqueness of Regular Girl is that “unlike other fiber that moves through your body too fast or too slow – it moves at just the right pace”. The product delivers “5 grams of clinically proven soluble fiber per serving”.
The dietary supplement is transparent and taste-free, non-GMO, certified Kosher and Halal, gluten-free and vegetarian. It comes in two kind of packages: on-the-go sachets or a 30-days worth of scoopable powder.
It can be taken at any time of the day but the company recommends to take it in the morning “to get your digestive system on track for a comfortable and healthy day”. It can be added to water, cereal, smoothie or yogurt.
“The FODMAP Talk” readers can enjoy a 10% discount on their first “Regular Girl” order.
