What do you know about FIBER?

On this week’s edition of “Let’s talk Nutrition” we talk about, FIBER.

What is Fiber? Why do we need Fiber? And how do I get Fiber in my diet?

Fiber is a carbohydrate that our bodies cannot digest so it helps keep everything in our system working and flowing properly, if you know what I mean.

Not only does Fiber help with a healthy digestive system, and a healthy gut, it can also help with excess toxins and hormones invading our bodies. Fiber will attach to these excess substances and carry them on out with them.

If you are having any gut or digestive issues, excess inflammation or hormone imbalances, track your fiber intake and see if you may be lacking in this area.

I recommend 25-35 grams for women and 35-45 grams for men, per day.
