Eat All The Fiber!
Posted On Aug 23, 2017
One reason fiber is so good for us isn’t just because it keeps our digestive systems on tract, it’s because of the way fiber actually reacts with bacteria in the colon. Fiber feeds good bacteria cells, which is one reason it can cause a bit of gurgling when you increase your fiber intake abruptly. Though it might be uncomfortable if you eat a lot of fiber at one time, it’s actually because your good bacteria levels are being fed. Fiber also allows your body to work as it’s supposed to and remove excess wastes (bad bacteria) via the colon to excrete it the way nature intended. Fiber from fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens are all some of the easiest to digest and healthiest for you. Other good sources are grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. Fiber is also one of the keys to staying healthy for life, which makes plant-based eating a no-brainer on all counts for your health.
