Small: Most people need between 25-30 grams a day. If you tend to be constipated then you need more. A "usual" dose from a supplement such as citucel, whether tablet or powder form, have between 4-6 grams. So someone can not get there full daily requirement from them. You must change your diet and drink your water everyday. ...Read more

Can i take a fiber supplement such as citrucel everyday. This is the only one that suits me and have IBS with chronic constipation?
Possibly: Each state differs some in what they allow food stamps to be used for. Fiber supplements and vitamins are likely to be allowable since they can improve and maintain overall health.
