MiraFIBER (review)

Disclosure: I received free product for review from Bayer, via BzzAgent, in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed were my own.

Okay, so constipation is a subject that many don't want to discuss in their own households, much less with their friends or coworkers, or even total strangers! I'm discussing constipation with you today, in hopes that I can share my opinions and maybe even some information with you about MiraFIBER!
I have had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) since I believe with '93 or '94, it's been so long ago that it started that I just can't remember anymore! As one with IBS, I've either had normal bowel movements, or constipation, or diarrhea. Having anything other than normal bowel movements is not fun, to say the least! TMI, I know, but this is real!

For the past few months, if I wasn't taking a bowel med, I was very constipated and I would have some gas and bloating with it. The gas and bloating weren't very comfortable. There are some meds out there for constipation that are over-the-counter that weren't working for me at all. I was given the opportunity to try MiraFIBER, and I signed up for it before I got put on a  prescription med for constipation. I will admit that I went off of my prescription bowel med for a bit so that I could give the MiraFIBER a chance.

Some reasons for someone to have irregularity are: aging, not drinking enough water, not active enough or not getting exercise, low fiber in the diet, and holding your bowel movements in (resisting the urge to go poop).  Remember that regularity varies from individual to individual!
Some ways to encourage regularity are drinking more water, exercising,  and increasing fiber in your diet.  Some foods that are high in fiber are prunes, oats, brown rice, peas, kale, to name a few!

MiraFIBER with DailyComfort Fiber comes in three choices: MiraFIBER Orange Powder, MiraFIBER Sugar-free Orange Powder, and MiraFIBER Caplets. I chose the MiraFIBER Sugar-free Orange Powder to use. I used a tablespoon of the SF orange MiraFIBER with somewhere between 12-16 ounces of water the first time that I used it, and stirred it well before drinking it down. I did have to add a pinch more water to drink with it. You want to make sure that you mix the powder well, so that you don't choke on it.  After the first use, I didn't go so well. I seriously didn't pay attention to the instructions, I guess, because you can use it up to three times a day. After that I followed the instructions and it worked much better! My tummy was happy!  My opinion... I felt that it worked and was helpful when I followed the instructions for the product. Do I recommend it? Yes! Also for more information, go to !

I do have a few coupons that I can share with you all if you want to try it. E-mail me at if you are interested in trying it.

Hurricane Matthew

My family is currently hunkered down in our home with hurricane shutters on all windows and and sliding glass doors. Please be safe if you are in the path of Matthew. We will be in its target tonight in FL ,  and will be losing power. I may not be online for a bit with the blog--- I know that I have several posts to write, and apologize for them being late.
