WHY YOUR GUT LOVES FIBRE
Fibre is the favourite food of the bacteria that live in your digestive system. Eating a diet high in fruit, vegetables and whole grains has been shown to give the healthiest balance of good gut bacteria, which plays a crucial role in your immunity, mood and even in helping you to maintain a healthy body weight.
Fibre can also increase the speed at which food goes through your large intestine, preventing constipation. And fibre also creates bulk that helps your bowel muscles work. Like any muscle in the body, the bowel muscle needs exercise too – and that’s what fibre can do.
