We all know that ample sleep, exercise, water, stress reduction and diet are the basic components to achieve optimal health. Eating the correct food to support health and avoid the carcinogenic, fattening and processed food to prevent illness is yet another component. Today’s discussion revolves around ‘Fiber’ cannot be absorbed but is crucially important for promotion of wellness, and therefore the prevention of chronic disease. Fibre 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.
Fibre is found in many natural and whole sources like fruits, grains, legumes and vegetables, dietary fiber is found in two types: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber forms into a gel-like substance when combined with fluid; 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. As such, soluble fiber reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes while lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Sources of soluble dietary fiber include 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.
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 insoluble dietary fiber include dark green leafy vegetables, green beans, whole grains (and their products), wheat and corn bran, celery, carrots, seeds, nuts and brown rice.
If you are lacking in natural fibre dietary sources, we suggest you look at assistance in this regard with either doing a regular 7 day ‘bulking’ detox or even consider using the Imsyser Deep Intestinal Cleanse daily, in really bad dietary states. The bulk of the product consists of Psyllium husk, but more importantly, the necessary added unique blend of herbs ( 12+) designed to support the loosening up of the impacted mucoidal plaque and associated build-up lining the gut. These herbs also assist in neutralising of the toxic release as this is being done. And more importantly, assists in the ease of movement out of the gut using Slippery Elm. This unique blend is easily used, causes no pain or discomfort or for that matter needs diet changes. It is however amazing to see the results upon use and once detox is started , feel the release of natural energies after the waste removal of such.
