Why Is Fibre So Good for You?
Did you know that fibre not only slows the absorbtion rate of sugar in the bloodstream but is also a source of food for the bacteria in your gut?
When you include fibre in your diet, such as beans or whole grains, sugars from food consumed are absorbed slower, which keeps blood glucose levels from rising too fast.
Insoluble fibre is also a source of food for the bacteria that reside in your colon, feeding and helping them thrive, ensuring you have a balanced microbiota, which can promote better digestive health and overall health and general wellbeing.
A high fibre diet helps you have soft, regular bowel movements, reducing constipation.
