Fantastic Fibre

Fibre is essential to detoxification. It feeds the good bacteria in your digestive tract and also binds with toxins and waste products in your gut, preventing their reabsorption and allowing them to be excreted. Fibre also binds with excess oestrogen and can help balance hormones.

There are two basic types of fibre: soluble and insoluble.

Soluble fibre breaks down in water in to a thick gel. It absorbs toxins for removal, can help lower cholesterol, normalise blood sugar and reduce your risk of heart and colon cancer.Some food sources of soluble fibre include apples, chia seeds, beets, carrots, lentils, oat bran, peaches and peas.

Insoluble fibre also known as roughage and adds bulk to your stool and does not break down. It moves bulk through the intestines and controls and balances the PH of the bowel to prevent microbes from producing cancerous substances. It can be helpful for some types of constipation as it tones the colon. Sources of insoluble fibre include oats, quinoa, wheat bran, whole grains, flaxseed, fruit skins, potato and root vegetable skins.

To ensure you’re benefiting daily from the detoxifying effects of functional fibre, get into the habit of sprinkling chia, linseed or LSA on your breakfast or in smoothies and eat a variety of fruits, vegetables and wholegrains. Both these insoluble and soluble fibres will create a brilliant orchestration of collecting toxins and carrying them out of your body.

Live Longer Eat Fibre.
