In brief: 25 grams

The usual recommended amount of daily fiber intake is a minimum of 25 grams a day.
The best way to get this is through diet and not supplements. It is also essential, though, that in getting enough fiber you also get enough free water. For someone who weighs 114 pounds, this would be about 60 ounces of water each and every day.
