Fantastic fibre - clean sweep!

Wednesday, November 15, 2017
When you mention "fibre" in 2017, most heads will fill with images of ultra-fast broadband swooshing messages through underground pipes along the street and up our driveways. The other type of fibre - the dietary variety - also relates to pipes and swooshing, but in relation to the effect fibre has on your daily bowel motions.  

Did you know the average adult has one to seven kilograms of undigested faecal matter stuck in their colon, even after a visit to the smallest room in the house?

The first thing to know about fibre is it is only found in foods that come from plants. There are two types of fibre: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre breaks down in the water of your digestive system and has been linked to supporting healthy cholesterol levels in your blood.

Insoluble fibre passes through your gut without being broken down and helps food to move easily through your digestive system, making you feel fuller for longer, and helping to remove waste and toxins from your intestines in a timely manner. During its travel time in your digestive pipes, insoluble fibre slows the absorption of sugars and fats, and provides fuel for the good bacteria that make their home in your gut, supporting your digestion and immunity.

Lifestream Bowel Biotics Fibre contains all-natural, plant-sourced psyllium fibre, which provides a mix of both soluble and insoluble fibre, covering the combined benefits. Bowel Biotics Fibre also has the added advantage of including the prebiotic inulin and probiotics to help create the right environment for digestion, immunity, bowel and skin health with these friendly bacteria in a daily dose for optimum health. It contains no synthetics, artificial flavours or sweeteners - just ingredients from nature. 

It is important to be diligent with drinking water when taking fibre, as fibre absorbs the water, while water softens your stool to make it easier to move through your digestive pipes.

The inulin found in Bowel Biotic Fibre was in a recent TV documentary extolling its virtues for aiding in healthy fat levels around your internal organs. This highlights just another amazing benefit from Lifestream Bowel Biotics fantastic Fibre!
