24 grams plus: You need a lot more fiber than that - but it is suppose to supplement - Please note that five servings of fruits and vegetables are an important part of your diet. One serving of vegetables is about half a cup. Add some whole apples, whole oranges, as well as some leafy green vegetables (brocoli, bok choi, asparagus, green beans) to your diet.
