Boost My Fibre For Boosting Immunity
Are you one of those people who always seems to be ill? No matter what you do, a cold always seems to be just around the corner, and you never quite feel 100%? Do you always put it down to ‘something going around’ or the air con at work?
The reason you’re often ill could actually be because you’re not getting enough fibre in your diet. Studies have shown that increasing the amount of fibre in your diet can have a positive effect on your immune system and help stave off those pesky coughs and colds.
How can fibre boost your immune system?
So if you often find yourself feeling under the weather, can adding more fibre to your diet really help? Well it can according to several clinical studies conducted by scientists and health professionals.
According to a study by the University of Illinois, soluble fibre has a positive effect on our immune cells, turning them from pro-inflammatory into anti-inflammatory healing cells that help us recover faster from infection.
Participants in the study were given identical low fat diets, except that half contained soluble fibre (fibre that dissolves in water) and half contained insoluble fibre (fibre that doesn’t dissolve in water). When the study had finished, it was found that the group who consumed soluble fibre, had a significantly improved response to illness and improved recovery time.
This is thanks to certain properties in soluble fibre that increase the production of an anti-inflammatory protein called interleukin-4. These anti-inflammatory properties could well help battle conditions such as heart diseases and strokes, particularly for those who are obese. For those with a high fat diet, consuming more fibre could help reduce the negative effects while maintaining the positive that come from such a diet.
With trials and studies such as these, it’s normally noted in the small print that a huge amount of said substance (fibre in this case) is needed to see any positive effects. However, the study states that a reasonable amount is needed to see the benefits, rather than a “pharmacological” amount.
How can Boost My Fibre help?
Boost My Fibre could help give your immune system a kickstart. That’s because the main ingredient in Boost My Fibre has been shown to contain high levels of various vitamins and minerals, such as zinc and magnesium, that contribute to a more effective immune system.
All you have to do is sprinkle Boost My Fibre over your food or dissolve in water (don’t worry, it won’t affect the taste), and just like that you’ve significantly increased your daily fibre intake.
It’s no secret that most of us don’t consume anywhere near the daily recommended intake of 30g of fibre (most of us get around 18g a day), but with Boost My Fibre, it couldn’t be easier. Plus you get all the other amazing benefits, including helping to lower blood pressure, battling constipation and diabetes, and even improving your mental health. So what are you waiting for?!
