4 Surprising Things That Happen to Your Body When You Get Enough Fiber

The vast majority of North Americans do not consume nearly enough fiber[1], and Registered Dietitians have been ringing the alarm bell for decades.[2] We need fiber to maintain a healthy gut and a healthy gut means a healthier body, better immunity, and optimal living.  

We already know that fiber helps keep our bowel movements regular, and while that’s an important reason to live a high-fiber life, there’s A LOT more to it than a good healthy poo! 💩😉

A diet high in fiber is an essential weapon in the fight against 
obesity, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease! 

So if you are here because you are on the road to living a high-fiber lifestyle, we have some great news: your body is going to LOVE it! 

In future articles, we will cover many more ways fiber improves your overall health, but today we’re covering four surprising things that happen to your body when you get enough fiber! 

Decreased Appetite & Sugar Cravings

Fiber is a powerful tool for weight loss. Think of it as your hunger-smashing hammer! When your diet is rich in fiber, you feel fuller longer; which means you eat less, lose weight, and properly eliminate. 💩 That’s why we say fiber up/slim down with just better.®  prebiotic fiber!

 We recommend 1 to 2 Tablespoons of just better.® prebiotic fiber per meal 

(3x per day) to help you reach your weight loss goals! 

Your body gets an immunity boost when you give it enough fiber.

Fun Fact: 70% of your immune system lives in your gut. 🤯 Your gut even has its very own ecosystem and needs full-time support from you. What does it need? Prebiotic fiber! 

just better.®  is a prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut.[3] Supporting that good bacteria means your gut microbiome is living its best life! 💃 And that means you are better protected from outside invaders (harmful viruses, etc.)!  

Improved Athletic Performance. 

just better.®  fiber contributes to endurance and athletic performance because it keeps blood sugars stable. Your body needs fiber to help stabilize blood glucose. Doing this helps to control your blood sugar from spiking or dropping. This gives you a more reliable energy supply. Who knew? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Well, now YOU do! 🧐 

Fiber is a superhero that lowers cholesterol & triglycerides! 

Soluble fiber can do amazing things! It’s like a superhero working in your intestine to bind with bad cholesterol and kick it out of your system! It works like a big sponge - soaking up bad cholesterol and triglycerides and politely escorting it outside of your body (into the sewer system). 😉 

 If you are on a mission to lower your bad cholesterol and/or triglycerides, commit to 1 to 2 Tablespoons of just better.®  fiber with
every meal (3x per day). 

👉 Give it four weeks, and you’ll never return to a low-fiber life again!

As you can see, fiber is the often overlooked super-nutrient that works overtime to keep your body functioning optimally. So why would anyone not get enough fiber? At
just better.®, we are doing our best to fix that, and we hope you will join the fight to close the fiber gap in your community!
