Let’s discuss fiber shall we? Did you know that most people need upwards of 32 grams of fiber a day? And quite frankly, we just don’t eat enough with a typical Western diet.Fiber plays an essential role in your digestive, heart, and skin health, and may even improve blood sugar control and weight management. Loads of things are full of fiber but if you want the best (like the Dom Perignon of fibers) go for vegetables, nuts, and seeds as they are the most healthful source.
Why care about fiber? “If we don’t eat enough soluble fiber, our bile, instead of being ushered out of the body and then replaced with fresh bile produced by the liver, is repeatedly recirculated in our system. In the process, it becomes more concentrated with toxins, which, in turn, can lead to all sorts of inflammatory diseases such as gallbladder disease, intestinal inflammation, and even skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis.” Wait what? Ewwwwwwww.
And this is why we’re all about full blend juices, by not extracting the fiber from your smoothie you get all the good stuff… lots of magic smoothie recipes here.
