Profibe – How Does It Work?
6, 2008 by HealthSense
ProFibeis a water-soluble fiber
product containing guar gum and citrus pectin. Clinical studies have
shown that Cerburg Profibe effectively aids diet and exercise in
lowering cholesterol levels and in breaking down soft arterial plaque.
Zocor and Lipitor, generically known as simvastatin and atorvastatin
respectively, are HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A)
reductase inhibitors, which are known lipid-lowering agents.
Fiber has long been recognized as important to health promotion and
disease prevention. Various health organizations, like the American
Heart Association, are recommending increased fiber in the diet
especially for those at risk of heart disease, those with
gastrointestinal problems and diabetes. Water-soluble fibers like gums,
mucilages, pectins, and algal polysaccharides such as those derived
from seaweeds have looser physical structures giving them greater
ProFibe being a water-soluble fiber can:
gastric emptying. Increased retention time of food in the stomach means
an earlier sense of fullness, helping to prevent overeating.
intestinal transit time. Absorption of food takes place in the
intestine. Increased transit time means food passes quickly and there
would be less time for food to be absorbed, particularly preventing
much fat to be absorbed.
glucose absorption. Excess glucose in the bloodstream that are not
utilized for energy needs are known to be stored as fats in the body.
fermented in the colon into short-chain fatty acids that may inhibit
liver cholesterol synthesis and help clear LDL cholesterol. The fatty
acids are also believed to be responsible in interfering with adhesive
property of plaque resulting in dissolution of blockage caused by
bile acids and cholesterol, resulting in increased excretion.

diseases, check outProfibenow to learn how to reduce
cholesterol levels in a natural and safe way.
What ProFibe Can do
The recommended three
servings per day of ProFibe™
can provide as much beneficial water-soluble fiber as a bushel of apples, a
dozen oranges, or a bucket of oatmeal. ProFibe™
accomplishes this by complexing
its components into a powder that the body can use 100
percent. Each 10.4 gram serving of ProFibe™ contains
a minimum 6 grams of water-soluble fiber, something
you cannot get from a single serving of fruit or other
What Is ProFibe™?
Developed by a gastroenterologist and a chemist at
the University of Florida, ProFibe™ is a water-soluble
fiber formula consisting of three elements: 1)guar gum;
2) unmodified citrus pectin; and 3) non-GMO soy
It’s all in the complexing. While there is nothing
remarkable about these three natural products by
themselves, ProFibe™ uses a patented complexing
process that transforms them into a powerful engine
for reducing cholesterol levels by as much as 25 to 30
percent in one month.
Other benefits may include a reduction in
atherosclerosis; better digestion; improved glucose
tolerance; weight loss and lowered blood pressure.
In addition, many ProFibe™ users report enhanced
energy levels—all without expensive medications and
their potential side effects.
The Science behind
In 1993, James J. Cerda, M.D., (Gastroenterologist,
Paul Dudley award winner, Ret. Rear Admiral) and
Charles Burgin, after researching the effects of watersoluble
fiber (WSF) for nearly two decades, discovered
that by complexing a protein to the fiber they could
prevent it from leaching out and becoming slimy or
sticky. This discovery meant that people could easily
consume the quantity of WSF necessary to lower LDL
ProFibe™ uses unmodified citrus (not grapefruit)
pectin and guar gum as its water-soluble fiber source.
The citrus pectin is extracted using the same method
used to extract protein from soybeans. The sugars, oils,
and bioflavonoids are removed.
This synergy between a natural fiber product such as
ProFibe™ and a synthetic pharmaceutical has enabled
thousands of people to lower their cholesterol to the
point where they are able—with their physician’s advice
and at their direction---to reduce their dosage of statin
drugs significantly or eliminate them altogether.
How Does ProFibe™ Do What It Does?
Our researchers discovered that by complexing the
WSF to a natural protein, such as soy, the body is able
to utilize 100 percent of the fiber intake. Bacteria in the
large intestine break down the WSF into short-chain
fatty acids, which is believed to lower LDL cholesterol
and to interfere with the adhesion of plaque to arterial
walls, thus reducing blockage.
Moreover, one of the well-known characteristics of
water-soluble fiber is that it inhibits glucose absorption
(think oatmeal), slowing down the
absorption of sugar
and a correspondingrise in insulin production,
can lead to cravings for yet more sugar and starches.
ProFibe™ helps you get off this treadmill, control your blood sugar and increase your
It Worked for Them
The people profiled here—and thousands like them—have
achieved remarkable results using ProFibe™ to lower
their LDL cholesterol and reduce atherosclerosis, with no
I’ve been taking ProFibe™ since July 1997, and it’s been
a lifesaver. I’m a 65-year old, 180-lb male with a family
history of heart disease. For exercise, I try to walk five
times per week.
In July 1998 after chest pains a scan showed plaque in
the arteries. On a scale of one to five, I was a four.
On an angiogram in February 2002 the doc found that I
had no plaque in my arteries. The people in the testing room
could hardly believe it. They said I had the arteries of an 18
year old, and that whatever you’re doing—keep doing it!
The only thing in my life I’ve changed is taking ProFibe™,
after reading an article in USA Today in 1997. It doesn’t
happen overnight, but it sure was worth the wait.
It’s for sure I’ll be taking ProFibe™ for the rest of my life.
Thanks for great research and for making this product.

a great product.
Clinical Study Proved ProFibe
1994-1995, Cerda and Burgin conducted human
studies that enabled them document the extraordinary
benefits of three servings of ProFibe™ per day. Fasting
cholesterol tests were taken on subjects at the beginning
of the study. Subjects then received three servings per
day of ProFibe™ for 30 days.
The result: An average 30 percent reduction in
LDLcholesterol levels without a change in diet or lifestyle.
In 1994, Cerda and Burgin documented the efficacy
of WSF in regressing arterial soft plaque in an article
published in Clinical Cardiology (“Grapefruit Pectin
Inhibits Hypercholesterolemia and Atherosclerosis in
Miniature Swine,” 11.595-600, 1998).
More than a decade after ProFibe’s introduction to the
market, this original research continues to be validated
over and over.
For Stubborn Cholesterols,
the Added Boost of ProFibe™
Made the Difference:
A 53-year-old Caucasian female taking 10mg of Zocor
per day. Total cholesterol was 249, LDL-C was 158, and
triglycerides were 198. After 30 days of three servings
of ProFibe™ per day, along with 10mg of Zocor, the
following results were observed: Total cholesterol: 216;
LDL-C: 134; Triglycerides: 130; The subject’s risk factor
also improved from 3.1 to 2.4 in just 30 days.
A 61-year-old Caucasian female with a recent history
of CAD was taking 20mg of Mevacor per day. Total
cholesterol was 301; LDL-C was 141. After only 14 days of
taking three servings of ProFibe™ per day, together with
Mevacor, total cholesterol dropped to 214, while LDL-C
was reduced to 84. Risk factor dropped from 4.7 to 3.2.
These kinds of results are why people

What is ProFibe?
ProFibe is a uniquely manufactured, water
soluble fiber (WSF) product.
ProFibe has been clinically demonstrated to be an effective adjunct to
diet and exercise for reducing cholesterol levels and reducing soft
plaque. ProFibe is approved under the FDA G.R.A.S. ruling (Generally
As Safe) and accepted by W.H.O. (World Health Organization).
Why reduce cholesterol?
A high cholesterol level, especially the
type known as Low Density Lipid
cholesterol (LDL) has been identified as a major risk factor for heart
disease. To some extent, cholesterol levels are determined by heredity.
However, most people can lower high cholesterol levels by attention to
diet, exercise, and sufficient daily intake of fiber.
Most health authorities, including the
American Heart Association and
Federal Government agencies concerned with health, now recommend
fiber in the daily diet. This is especially important for people at
for heart disease. Fiber has long demonstrated its effectiveness in
cholesterol. However, most people in developed countries have a
time consuming the amounts of fruits, vegetables and whole grain needed
to obtain optimal amounts of fiber in their daily diet.
Why Water Soluble Fiber?
For years researchers have known that
water soluble fiber (WSF) could
dramatically reduce cholesterol levels. While all fiber is useful, WSF
has proven itself most effective. Water Soluble Fiber includes
such as guar gum, locust bean, and citrus pectin.
How is ProFibe different from fiber
products I may now be using?
Most fiber products recommended for
‘regularity’ contain psyllium husk,
which is an insoluble fiber. Similarly, oat bran, while a healthful
is not 100% water soluble fiber. Clinical studies have found ProFibe,
contains only water soluble fibers (WSF) to be as effective for most
as prescription medication such as Mevacor and Zocor, for example.
Why don’t we use more Water Soluble
Although water soluble fiber (WSF) is
highly effective in reducing cholesterol
levels, it would be difficult to eat the enormous amounts of apples,
or similar foods each day needed for sufficient amounts. In their
or isolated form, water soluble fiber products are slimy and sticky,
most people will not consume the amounts needed for optimal results. In
dry form, as pills, the effective amounts would require taking dozens
pills each day, a costly and inconvenient regimen

ProFibe is made from guar gum and citrus

Profibe and Eye Problem:
ProFibe Studies Performed on 70-Year-Old Male
Dear Dr. Cerda and Mr. Burgin:
Mr. S.L. Garrett experienced visual transient ischemic attack symptoms
in left eye in December of 1994 and subsequent carotid ultrasound
examination in December of 1994 demonstrated moderate focal hard and
soft plaquing of the left common carotid artery with small area of
ulceration change in the central portion of the plaquing and this is
felt to account for patientâ€™s visual transient ischemic attack
symptoms in left eye. The degree of stenosis was a little more
than 40% narrowing of the left common carotid artery. Patient had
mild plaquing and minimal narrowing otherwise in left internal and
external carotid arteries in the bulb and of the right common carotid
artery and right internal and external carotid arteries at the
bifurcation. Patient subsequently under went arteriography in
December of 1994 which confirmed and correlated one-to-one the
ultrasound findings of the left common carotid artery just beneath the
bifurcation with demonstration of small ulceration change in the area
of moderate plaquing with approximately 40% stenosis narrowing of
the left common carotid artery in this area.
Patient subsequently started on a ProFibe regime January of 1995 and
continued though to present, the end of May 1996, with repeat
ultrasound of the carotid arteries performed 5-28-96 demonstrating
improvement from the 1994 examination with previous ulceration changes
no longer identified and also of important note, there is diminished
component of plaquing of the left common carotid artery in the area
previously with only 20 to 25% relative narrowing stenosis currently
and with smooth margins of plaquing which has relatively flattened
configuration compared to prior examination. The left internal
and external carotid artery beyond the bifurcation along the carotid
bulb on the left, as well as right internal carotid artery bulb and
internal carotid artery and external c! arotid a rtery just passed the
bifurcation remaining relatively clear. There is demonstration of
excellent flow through the carotid arteries bilaterally
currently. This significant improvement of the left carotid since
1994 is felt directly attributable to the ProFibe regime.

"Let's expand our knowledge a little more

is define what cholesterol is and comes from. "Cholesterol is a soft,

membranes, certain hormones and other necessary substances "People get
cholesterol in two ways.
The body - primarily the liver - produces
varying amounts, usually about
1,000 mg a .day. An additional 400 mg to 500 mg or more can come
from foods. Foods from animals, especially egg yolks, meat, fish,
and whole milk dairy products, contain it; food from plants don't.
the body makes all the cholesterol it needs, so it's not something that
people need to consume to maintain their health."
"Besides being present in human tissues,
cholesterol is also found in
the bloodstream. The blood transports cholesterol to and from various

in the blood." Charly, I know this is pretty basic information but wait
until you see what high cholesterol can do to our arteries. Remember,
I only weigh a pound or two but I have the responsibility of pumping a
couple of thousand gallons of blood per day throughout our body."
"Now that I have your attention, let's
explore the relationship between
the different cholesterol components and what they represent." "The

the thickening and hardening
