FortiFi™ is a new health-giving Santegra USA®’s product containing soluble fiber and insoluble fiber as two components of dietary fiber or health fiber. Dietary fiber or health fiber has been linked to the prevention of a number of diseases. Dietary health fiber combats the major causes of death and disability in the United States: cardio-vascular diseases, cancer, obesity, and diabetes.
Unfortunately, the diet of the modern person is so poor with dietary fiber, that an all natural supplements intake is a necessity for health maintenance. General health recommendations for a daily consumption are 20-35 grams of health fiber, but the average consumption in the developed countries is less than 15 grams of health dietary fiber.

Fiber is a substance found only in plants, such as fruits, vegetables, and grains. The part of the plant fiber that you eat is called dietary fiber and is an important part of a healthy diet. There are two main types of dietary fiber – insoluble fiber and soluble fiber.
Soluble fiber comes from the storage materials of the plant used to store water. Soluble fiber dissolves and thickens in water, and can form a gel.There are three major properties of water-soluble fiber, namely, water-holding ability, viscosity and ferment ability. Most soluble fibers are completely fermented, except psyllium (soluble fiber), which is only partially fermented.
Soluble fiber forms a gel when mixed with liquid, while insoluble fiber does not. Insoluble fiber passes through your digestive tract largely intact. Both types of fiber are important in the diet and provide benefits to the digestive system by helping to maintain regularity.
Soluble fiber is found in oats, peas, beans, certain fruits, and psyllium.
In additional to the digestive system benefits mentioned above, soluble fiber has been scientifically proven to reduce blood cholesterol levels, which may help reduce your risk of heart disease. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration recently authorized food companies to use a health claim for soluble fiber from both psyllium and oats.
More than 150 studies have been conducted examining the role of soluble fiber in reducing the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. It is well known that the high cholesterol level may lead to the development of heart diseases. The inclusion of soluble fibers in the diet is both practical and safe.
Soluble Fiber acts like a sponge, absorbing fluid as it moves through system. This results in softer, bigger stools (fewer hemorrhoids). It also slows release of sugar to the bloodstream (hypoglycemia, diabetes), prevents hunger by filling the stomach and regulating blood sugar. Soluble Fiber also lowers cholesterol as it forms gel, which captures bile acids and cholesterol in diet. (5)
A diet rich in soluble fiber has numerous health benefits such as its effectiveness in controlling obesity, stroke, diabetes, cancer and gastrointestinal disorders. (2)
In Netherlands study has shown that men with the lowest fiber intake had a four times higher death rate from heart disease than men with the highest fiber intake. A fiber intake of at least 37 grams daily seemed to protect against heart disease.
In the same study, men with the lowest fiber intake had three times as many deaths from cancer as men with the highest fiber intake. (1)
Both soluble and insoluble fiber help improve blood sugar control in diabetic and nondiabetic individuals.
Heart diseases are the leading cause of death in the United States as well as in many developing and developed countries. However, studies have found that there is a significantly lower incidence in Japan (88 per 100 000 people) where the fiber intake is the highest in comparison with Germany (267 per 100 000 people), where fiber intake is medium and the USA (564 per 100 000people), where the fiber intake is low. (3,4)
Insoluble fiber passes through body more quickly than soluble fiber, preventing or relieving constipation. It may prevent colon cancer by moving cancer-causing substances through digestive tract more quickly. Insoluble fiber helps against constipation, which nowadays is a common condition for many people. Almost half of the population of the developed countries suffers from constipation.
A low-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grain containing fiber may lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce risk of heart diseases. This type of diet may also reduce the risk of some types of cancer. Nutrition plays a role in about 35 percent of all cancers. The National Cancer Institute recommends that Americans increase their fiber intake to help protect against cancer. (1)
A number of U.S. health organizations, including the American Dietetic Association, the American Diabetes Association, the Food and Drug Administration, and the National Cancer Institute, recommend increasing fiber intake to about 25 to 35 grams daily.
More than 150 clinical trials were conducted with the purpose to determine the influence of dietary fibers on the condition of cardio-vascular system.
The increased cholesterol level is one of the major risk factors of coronary heart diseases. The findings demonstrated that soluble fiber reduces the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. Soluble fibers decrease the bile absorption process. Bile, which contains cholesterol, is necessary for the digestion of fat. It is secreted into the intestine in response to food intake and most of it is reabsorbed after digestion is completed, when soluble fiber is present not as much bile is reabsorbed. (5)
The research conducted in Netherlands showed that men using insufficient amount of dietary fibers are four times more susceptible to fatal results of CVD. The daily dietary fiber intake should be no less than 37 mg per day.
Burkitt et al, in 1972, compared various population groups and found that those on high fiber diets produced stools of 150- 980 grams/day, with transit times of 19-68 hours. Those on low fiber produced stools of 39-195 grams/day with transit times of 28-144 hours. (6)
Thus the diet rich in fiber helps to normalize pathologically slow or fast stool transit time.
Clinical trial showed that adding 30 g of oat bran to the healthy adult men diet decreases the stool transit time from 3.8 to 2.4 days, but in patients with diarrhea the time increases from some hours to 1.7 day.
In one of the studies food frequency questionnaire was used to assess the relation of fibre intake and frequency of colorectal adenoma. The study was done within the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial, a randomised controlled trial designed to investigate methods for early detection of cancer. Fibre intake of 33971 participants who were sigmoidoscopy-negative for polyps was compared with 3591 cases with at least one histologically verified adenoma in the distal large bowel (ie, descending colon, sigmoid colon, or rectum). Odds ratios were estimated by logistic regression analysis. High intakes of dietary fibre were associated with a lower risk of colorectal adenoma, after adjustment for potential dietary and non-dietary risk factors. Participants in the highest quintile of dietary fibre intake had a 27% (95% CI 14-38, p(trend)=0.002) lower risk of adenoma than those in the lowest quintile. The inverse association was strongest for fibre from grains and cereals and from fruits. (7)
The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study is a Europe-wide prospective cohort study of the relationships between diet and cancer, as well as other chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease. 521,457 healthy adults, mostly aged 35-70 years, were enrolled in ten European countries. It reported that a group with the highest fiber intake had a 25% reduction in the incidence of colon cancer compared to individuals with the lowest fiber intake. (8)
