What is it:
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that comes in many different forms (often referred to as “insoluble” or “soluble”) and is not digested by your body.
How it works:
Fiber helps you digest other nutrients that come from your food more efficiently, while also serving as fuel for the trillions of bacteria in your gut.
Some potential health benefits:
Fiber slows down your digestion making you feel fuller and helps your intestines extract vital nutrients from food.
Fiber helps you have healthy stools.
Fiber is the fuel your gut bacteria need to help your digestive system function at its best.
Fiber may help with weight loss.
Where to get it:
Whole, plant-based foods such as vegetables, whole-grains, and fruits are some of the best sources for quality fiber.
For many people, a diet incorporating whole, plant-based foods serve as an excellent source of fiber and nutrition!
