They Key Nutrient You’re MISSING!
I’ve said it time and time again…
Food really is medicine.
What you eat or don’t eat plays a part in everything from heart health and diabetes risk to brain fog, sleep issues, and libido.
One nutrient in particular has been shown to help control blood sugar levels, help achieve healthy weight, boost heart health, maintain bowel health—and can even help you live longer.
The only problem?
93 percent of Americans aren’t getting nearly enough of it.
Chances are, you’re one of them.
You know fiber is good for you — and you probably know it helps keep your digestive system regular.
But higher fiber diets have been linked more than just healthy bowels.
Eating more fiber has also been tied to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
It’s an important aspect of your gut health — your microbiome — which helps improve the absorption of nutrients and is a critical factor in both your physical and mental health.
Poor gut health, on the other hand, has been linked to an increased risk of certain cancers, a higher prevalence of autoimmune disease, and decreased vaccine efficacy.
The problem is that most Americans aren’t getting nearly enough.
In a nutrition survey conducted over 5 years that looked at 14,600 people, researchers found that ONLY 7 percent of US adults were getting enough fiber in their diet — and only 5 percent of men specifically are getting what they need.
Specifically, women consumed just about 9.9 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories, and men were eating even less, at just 8.7 grams.
Health guidelines recommend eating 14 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories — or 28 grams for the typical 2,000 calorie diet.
The reason for this drastic deficiency is simple: People are eating too many processed foods, which often have little to no fiber.
Make the switch to a whole-food diet, and you won’t have to worry about whether or not you’re getting enough fiber.
Fiber is in foods like beans, berries, leafy greens, nuts, sweet potatoes, oats, quinoa… the list goes on.
