To eat at least 24 grams of fiber, the intake that most health experts suggest, is not easy.
Fortunately, Sunrider has created a fiber-rich product called the Vitalite SunBar that offers 4 grams of fiber in convinient to use bars. These bars can be eaten as a meal replacement. You will notice the difference after first day!

VitaShake contains valuable soluble fiber, it's a drink mix and my favorite product.
The fiber in Vitashake is from FOS.
FOS is an acronym for fructooligosaccharides.
These are complex carbohydrates, or sugars that come naturally from high fiber foods such as garlic, onions, leeks, oats, barley, rye and chicory root. One great thing about fructooligosaccharides is that they help the body make its' own beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. This is what is referred to as a "pro-biotic". It's the opposite of an antibiotic, which not only kills the bad bacteria in the digestive system, but may also destroy some of the healthy bacteria that you need.
Most high fiber foods only brush the intestines, but FOS also aids digestion by helping to boost assimilation of nutrients through the intestinal walls. For example, when you consume enough friendly bacteria, then the body is able to produce an abundant supply of B vitamins.
