Boost My Fibre For a Healthy Gut

It may not be the trendiest part of your body, but having a healthy gut is pretty important for your overall health.

Making sure your gut is firing on all cylinders can have all sorts of benefits to your health, including helping you lose weight, boosting your immune system, and even fighting conditions such as diabetes and cancer.

This is all down to the trillions (yes, literally trillions) of bacteria living in your large intestine. Don’t worry! Most of them are the good kind of bacteria and are vital in helping your gut stay healthy and working as it should.

These good bacteria, known as probiotics, do all kinds of helpful and amazing things, including digesting food, absorbing nutrients and boosting your immunity. That’s why it’s so important to keep these probiotics happy and well fed, while ensuring the bad bacteria doesn’t take over – that’s where fibre can help.

Why does fibre help promote a healthy gut?

These good bacteria, known as probiotics, do all kinds of helpful and amazing things, including digesting food, absorbing nutrients and boosting your immunity. That’s why it’s so important to keep these probiotics happy and well fed, while ensuring the bad bacteria doesn’t take over – that’s where fibre can help.

The good bacteria in our gut love fibre, specifically a type of fibre known as prebiotics. Prebiotic fibre travels through the gut undigested where it ferments. During this process it produces short-chain fatty acids, which feed the good bacteria while providing a hostile environment for the bad bacteria.

This is very important because, as you might suspect, having too much bad bacteria in your gut can lead to a number of gastrointestinal problems, so it’s vital you give the good bacteria as much help as possible.

Who can benefit from healthier gut bacteria?

Well, everyone really! We could all do with ensuring our gut and its good bacteria are as healthy as possible, but some of us could do with a little more help than others.

Older people, those in poor health or with poor diet, and those who are stressed are all at a higher risk of their healthy gut bacteria not working as they should and being overwhelmed by bad bacteria. Adding more prebiotics into your diet can just give your body a bit of a helping hand.

Prebiotics vs Probiotics

Probiotics and prebiotics are not the same thing, but it’s easy to get the two confused. Here’s a handy reminder of the difference between them:

Probiotics: A type of bacteria that can be consumed to top up the good bacteria in your gut and fight off the bad bacteria. Can be found in cheese, yoghurt, pickled vegetables, and more.

Prebiotics: A form of fibre that feeds the healthy bacteria in the gut. Can be found in garlic, leeks, honey, and Boost My Fibre.

How can Boost My Fibre help?

It’s no secret that most of us don’t get as much fibre in our diet as we should. We should try and consume around 30g of fibre per day, but by not getting enough, we’re putting our health at risk.

By increasing the amount of fibre in our diet, we can take advantage of a wide range of amazing health benefits, including lower blood sugar levels and blood pressure, improved gut health and immune system, and even help fighting conditions such as constipation, diabetes and cancer.

One way of getting more fibre into your diet is by eating more fruit and vegetables, but we know that isn’t always easy.

Boost My Fibre makes it easy.

You can add Boost My Fibre to water or sprinkle it over your food (don’t worry, it won’t affect the taste) and just like that you can increase your daily fibre intake.

The main ingredient in Boost My Fibre is a prebiotic fibre that feeds all those lovely probiotic bacteria in your gut while helping keep the bad bacteria at bay. By adding in Boost My Fibre into your diet, you can have a healthier gut and all the other amazing health benefits that come with that.
