Did you know that nine out of 10 Americans don’t get enough fiber? It’s true. In fact, most Americans have alarmingly low fiber intake. There’s a simple solution: eat more foods containing fiber, like produce or whole grains. The body can’t break down fiber so it isn’t digested by the small intestine. As such, it serves as roughage which helps sweep out toxins and excess cholesterol from the digestive system. Fiber also helps stabilize the gut microbiome, the collection of good bacteria that keep your stomach healthy. Research increasingly shows that the gut microbiome is crucial to immunity, weight loss and more. Gut bacteria ferments the fiber which promotes further growth of beneficial bacteria.
Foods like beans, apples, carrots, oatmeal and nuts are all good sources. Meat and dairy contain no fiber, and many breads and pastas are so refined that most of the fiber is removed in that process. More natural and unprocessed foods are higher in fiber.
Increasing intake of whole foods is great, but most people still don’t get enough fiber. In fact, it is pretty hard to have a diet with too much fiber. A person needs about 25 grams of fiber each day, and while it is ideal to get fiber from whole foods, most people need a supplement.
