Most people do not consume enough dietary fiber; in fact, 97% of Americans are considered fiber-deficient. It’s a staggering statistic!
For decades, medical professionals have sounded the alarm about low-fiber diets and how they wreak havoc on our gut microbiome and overall health. Low-fiber diets cause many avoidable health conditions like chronic inflammation, weight management challenges, and poor gut health.
Studies show that our gut influences many (if not most) of our organ systems, including our immune system and our brain.
And what does your gut need to flourish?
You guessed it, FIBER!
Fiber does WAY more than just keep you regular. Fiber is an essential weapon in the fight against obesity, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease!
So, how can you tell if you’re not getting enough fiber?
Here are some common signs of fiber deficiency:
- Sugar Cravings
- Hunger After Eating
- Mood Swings
- High Cholesterol
- Stubborn Extra Weight
- Fluctuating Blood Sugar Levels
- Sour Tummy Feeling
- Low Energy / Fatigue
- Irregular Bowel Movements
- Lowered Immune Response (frequent illness)
If you want to improve and support your gut health, we recommend increasing whole, unprocessed fiber-rich foods in your diet and adding 1 to 2 Tablespoons of just better.® fiber to your daily healthy living routine.
