Fiber??

Hi,
I just starting using this stuff called "Benefiber" and it says that one serving(one tbs) is equal to one tbs which = 3gr of soluble, and 3gr of insoluble fiber. BUt on the bottom it says that you can take up to 3 tbs three times a day. Wouldn't that equal 36 grams of fiber???? When about 25 is the recommened amount??? So if i were to do one serving(3 gr of soluble and 3 gr of insoluble) that would already be 6gr which is 36-6, right? Sorry but i'm confused.

Re: Fiber??

Thats prolly right b/c the average is 25 if u need to be taking the BeneFiber stuff than you prolly need a little more than the average so that makes sence to me I would think

Oh okay, cause I wasn't sure if I needed to add BOTH the insoluble and solube within the recommended estimate, which would be 6 gr per tabelspoon, thanks.
