Brenda Watson made several appearances on The Suzanne Show last year, which aired on Lifetime Television. During the show, Brenda and Suzanne Somers covered a whole range of health topics from fiber, poop, and heart health to what it really takes to maintain a healthy weight and proper digestion for long-term health and vitality.
If you missed any of the shows last year you can still catch The Suzanne Show’s best-of recap airing February 27th at 8:00 a.m. on Lifetime Television. The best-of show features Brenda’s popular and surprising fiber segment. This segment covers some little known facts about fiber, including:
- How you can reduce the amount of calories you absorb each day by adding more fiber to your diet with the fiber flush effect
- The two types of fiber to watch out for…are you getting both?
- How to boost the amount of fiber in your diet to the recommended 35g daily without eating a dozen apples, a whole loaf of bread, or enough greens to stock a salad bar
- How to avoid a laxative addiction with the new generation of fiber supplements that aren’t harsh like the psyllium found in certain fibers, which can cause cramping
And fiber does so much more for your health than simply support digestion and a healthy weight. Fiber—especially select fibers like oat bran and acacia fiber—supports healthy cholesterol levels and heart health. Fiber is also the great detoxifier, promoting a cleansing flush of toxins from the body and increasing your energy levels, benefitting liver detox, and supporting healthy skin.

A study published recently in the British Medical Journal revealed some eye-opening facts about statins—mainly that the highly-touted cholesterol-lowering drugs end up doing more harm than good when taken as directed.
Statins work by blocking cholesterol production in the liver, which in turn causes the liver to create a type of protein that helps eliminate bad cholesterol (LDL) from the body. Unfortunately, results of the study—which included more than 2 million participants—show that statins help only a very small percentage of those who take them, but that twice as often they result in serious health problems, including liver damage, acute kidney failure, extreme muscle weakness and cataracts, as well as an increased risk of esophageal cancer. Not only that, but statins, like all synthetic drugs, are chock full of chemicals that can wreak havoc on the body and overall health.
Omega-3s: A Natural Alternative to Statins
Decades of research regarding the natural health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids has shown that a diet rich in Omega-3s helps prevent a wide range of cardiovascular problems, including heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure, prompting experts like the American Heart Association to recommend between 1 and 4 grams (1,000-4,000mg) of combined EPA and DHA daily for people with known heart problems.
Because the standard American diet is severely lacking in beneficial Omegas, a daily Omega-3 supplement can help provide safe and effective natural support for a healthier heart. In addition, fish-derived Omega-3 fats have been shown also to improve brain, eye, and immune function, as well as promote healthy skin, bones, joints and mood.
