We go through everyday life exposed to toxins in our diets, chemicals in the environment and absorption through the pores of the skin. Where do all the toxins eventually get stored? In our gut… and over time they can build up and make us sick. It is essential that we cleanse our gut to get rid of these toxins and that is why we need fiber.
Fiber, fiber and more fiber!
Foods that are high in fiber are great for a bowel cleaning and help to sweep the colon clean of toxins. Keeping regular helps excrete toxins through waste product. Fibers come in two types: soluble, those that break down in water and insoluble, those that don’t break down in water. Both sources can be a tremendous asset in eliminating toxins from the bowels. Soluble fiber is especially good, because it creates beneficial bacteria which helps push out the unwanted germs and bacteria.
Fiber and your intestinal flora…
Intestinal flora plays a vital role in reducing the risk of obesity. It is essential for forming stools, maintaining immunity, synthesizing essential vitamins, and can help protect from colorectal cancers. Healthy intestinal flora can often be damaged by antibiotics, laxatives, heavy metals, surgeries, or colonoscopies. Fiber is often recommended to restore and form stools to reduce the gut bacteria that favor obesity.
