Three Things to Know about Fiber

I came across this great article from Gut Geek that breaks down the three big takeaways on what you need to know about fiber:

  1. Our bodies can’t digest fiber, so fiber passes straight through the body.
  2. Fiber is what feeds our good bacteria, and those good bacteria are essential for our overall health.
  3. If your gut health is out of whack and you don’t have enough of the good bacteria, eating fiber can actually make your symptoms worse (I’ll have a blog article about that and the low FODMAP diet coming up soon).

Gut Geek is another terrific resource for information about our gut and gut health. I definitely recommend checking out the website, and following them on Facebook and Twitter.
