Nourishing Your Gut: The Vital Role of Fiber

November 13, 20231 min read

Microbes thrive on the richness of complex carbs found in fiber. Unfortunately, our modern diet, often rich in simple carbs from sodas and packaged snacks, fails to sufficiently reach the gut's microbial community. This lack of fiber starves our gut microbiota, leading to reduced diversity.

When deprived of fiber, gut bacteria face starvation, risking their decline or resorting to consuming the protective mucus lining of the gut. This mucus acts as a shield against pathogens, preventing inflammation and disease. The crucial lesson here is clear: nourish your gut microbes with fiber to prevent them from feeding on your own protective barriers.
