What is Fiber?
There are many elements that are required to achieve optimal health: sleep, exercise, water, stress reduction and diet. One must eat the correct food to support health and avoid the carcinogenic, fattening and processed food to prevent illness.
Fiber is a food that holds a special place among diet and wellness, we don’t digest it, doesn’t enter into our bloodstream. Instead just passes through our digestive tract until it is excreted. Fiber promotes wellness while also reducing the risk of chronic disease. It provides bulk, suppresses appetite, binds with cholesterol, lowers blood sugar and speeds removal of toxic wastes from the bowels, thereby reducing the risk of constipation, high blood sugar, hemorrhoids, diabetes, cholesterol, heart disease and some cancers.
How do you fibre-up?
Fibre is found in many natural and whole sources like fruits, grains, legumes and vegetables. Soluble fiber forms into a gel-like substance when combined with fluid as in the case of the Psyllium Husk in the Imsyser Deep Intestinal Cleanse. If you have ever stirred some into a glass and left it alone for a minute you saw what this looks like. What’s good about this gel is that it creates bulk which not only binds fatty acids but also stabilizes blood sugar, slowing down the time it takes food to empty from the stomach and its sugars to break down. This is good news for diabetics, hypoglycemics and anyone looking to lose weight naturally. Soluble fibre reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes while lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Insoluble fiber does not form into a gel but passes through your digestive tract largely intact. It works to provide bulk to move toxic waste through your intestines, thereby aiding in digestion, promoting regular bowel movements and preventing constipation. Its bulk controls and balances pH (acid/alkaline balance) in the intestines, which helps reduce the risk of colon cancer. Insoluble fiber also helps bind cholesterol in the digestive tract, thus lowering cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, diabetes and colon and rectal cancers.
Sources of soluble dietary fiber
Oatmeal and oat bran, nuts, flax seed, psyllium husk, barley, dried beans and peas, carrots, berries and grapes. It is also found in pectin in the skins of fruits like oranges, apples and pears.
The Imsyser Deep Intestinal Cleanse uses psyllium husk to assist the chronic constipation cases in a 7-day gentle cleans/detox but is especially effective in removing the extremely hardened toxic mucoidal plaque impacted as is often the case in individuals not taking enough fiber or doing enough exercise.
Sources of insoluble dietary fiber
Dark green leafy vegetables, green beans, whole grains, wheat and corn bran, celery, carrots, seeds, nuts and brown rice. These are the sources most often lacking in the diet. Which eventually leads us the point where a cleanse or fiber up is required to effectively produce daily healthy movement. The Imsyser deep Intestinal Cleanse may be used in smaller dosages than the regular dose suggested on the labels. It will not make the gut lazy in any way. All ages are welcome especially when toddlers are battling to take in enough fiber and or battle with constipation. I always suggest enough water first however!!
