    HyFiber Liquid Fiber with FOS from HealthyKin.com is a class of medical foods that provide relief from constipation by providing 11 grams of soluble fiber with the prebiotic FOS.

    Among various gastrointestinal problems that affect the geriatric population, constipation is considered by far the most prevalent. Constipation affects dignity and quality of life. A resident experiencing constipation is chronically uncomfortable. Suppositories and drug treatment can add to a lengthy list of medicines. Drug treatment for constipation can cause nerve damage in the colon and foster even greater dependency.

    Laxatives create an urge need to 'go now'. If the resident is unable to toilet themselves, "accidents" can frequently happen causing embarrassment to the resident and placing greater demands on staff.

    The HyFiber program eliminates stool softeners, laxatives, difficult to swallow constipation tablets, enemas and other supplied medications associated with constipation and irregularity. One ounce of HyFiber administered daily reduces staff hours, poly pharmacy and increases patient well-being.

    Hyfiber is a unique soluble fiber containing the prebiotic FOS. HyFiber is a colorless natural bulking agent with a hint of citrus flavor. It is instantly dispersible and can be added to all type of liquids and soft foods or it can be dispensed directly from a medicine cup.

    HyFiber contains 1.7 grams of Fructo-Oligosaccarides (FOS) per 1 oz (30 mL) dose. FOS is found in many types of vegetables and consists of short chains fructose molecules that are only partially digested. The undigested portion serves as food for "friendly'" bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus.

    HyFiber is not recommended for children under 3 years of age. There are no known contraindications to HyFiber.
