Our immune system is like a superhero, fending off infection from bacteria, viruses, and fungi! It is very complex, with an intricate network of cells working together to keep us healthy.
When your immune system functions optimally, it stays busy searching for foreign agents. If it detects an invasion, this complex system deploys a seek-and-destroy mission, eradicating nefarious invaders! It’s pretty exciting, action-packed stuff!
For your immune system to function at its best, you need a healthy gut! Why? Because more than 70% of our immune system lives in our gut! WOW!!
We are only beginning to understand the “Gut Connection” and how supporting this delicate but tough microbiome can help improve our overall health and well-being.
What we do know - without a doubt - is that the good bacteria in our gut need the right environment and “food” to thrive.
When these healthy gut bacteria thrive, they multiply and flourish. And when that happens, we feel amazing both physically and mentally!
Recap: Want a healthy immune system? Take care of your gut!
If our immune system is so closely connected to our gut microbiome, how can we better care for our gut?
We are so glad you asked! ;) Taking care of your gut is a lot like tending a garden. The “good gut bacteria” need food (or fertilizer) to colonize.
Q: What do they eat?
A: Prebiotic fiber!
Prebiotics help the good probiotic bacteria colonize the gut. Our bodies do not absorb or digest prebiotic fiber. However, the good bacteria residing in the gut LOVE it!
We need about 30 grams of fiber daily for a healthy gut. Most Americans get less than 10 grams per day with a standard diet.
At JUST BETTER BRANDS, we believe you should get as much fiber as possible from whole, unprocessed foods, but we know this can be challenging for many reasons.
We created just better.® fiber, especially for busy people who find it difficult to get 30 grams of fiber daily.
just better.® is a clinically proven prebiotic soluble fiber developed by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist on a mission to help busy people get healthy and stay healthy!
Our fiber promotes weight loss, prevents blood sugar spikes and crashes, reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, and provides food for the good probiotic bacteria in the gut.
just better.® fiber is 100% dissolvable, flavorless, and does not cause unpleasant GI side effects such as gas and bloating. (Whew!)
Add just better.® to your favorite hot or cold beverages, sprinkle on your food, or add it to your favorite recipes. You can bake with it too!
And if you’re also cutting back on sugar (good for you!) - use just better.® in place of (up to half) the white sugar called for in your recipes!
Live… just better.®
