The Best High-Fiber Foods For Gut Health

Many studies have shown the positive impact of a high-fiber diet. Benefits include protection against heart disease, better gut health, weight management, reduced risk of diabetes, and more. Although fiber is known for its health benefits, some experts estimate only 5% of the population eats an adequate amount of fiber daily.

If you’re struggling with adding fiber to your diet, here are a few high-fiber foods you can include in your meal prep this week so you can start seeing the benefits of this superfood!


Why is fiber so important?

Dietary fiber passes through your digestive tract largely undigested until it reaches the colon or large intestine where some fibers are fermented by microbiota. A high-fiber diet can normalize bowel movements, soften stool and help maintain bowel health. 

Fruits

  • Pears
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Oranges
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Apples

Grains and Legumes

  • Quinoa
  • Oats
  • Popcorn
  • Whole Grains
  • Lima Beans
  • Black Beans
  • White Beans
  • Kidney Beans
  • Lentils
  • Chickpeas

Seeds and Nuts

  • Pecans
  • Pistachios
  • Almonds

Vegetables

  • Potatoes (with skin)
  • Avocado
  • Broccoli
  • Leafy Greens (cooked)
  • Brussels Sprouts

If you aren’t able to incorporate these foods into your diet due to food preferences or allergies, you can also consider taking Resistant Starch Prebiotic Fiber each morning. Prebiotics are the preferred food source for healthy bacteria (probiotics), which are necessary to break down food and absorb nutrients.

It’s important to remember that adding more fiber to your diet can lead to constipation. Be sure to slowly start adding more fiber to each meal to avoid adverse side effects. Your body will slowly adjust to being able to handle additional fiber intake.

  • Weight Loss
  • Reduction in Inflammation
  • Improvement in symptoms of IBS and IBD
  • Balanced blood sugar and improvement in insulin sensitivity
  • Reduction in anxiety and depression
  • Repairs to "leaky gut"

Mix vigorously with at least 8 ounces of water of blend into a smoothie. Start by taking ¼ scoop and gradually increase the dose as tolerated.

Take only as directed. Consume immediately after mixing with liquid as this product will thicken quickly once mixed. If not taken with adequate amounts of fluid, this product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you have ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties. Consult a Healthcare practitioner if pregnant or nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

Q. How long will this bottle last?

A. Each bottle has 30 full servings. However, if you're new to taking prebiotics, we suggest starting with about a quarter serving and working your way up slowly until you can tolerate a full scoop. So depending on your tolerance each bottle should last one month or longer.

Q. How does it taste?

A. This product is unflavored.

Q. Does this come in capsule form?

A. No, only powder form.

Q. Will this product dissolve in hot liquids?

A. The product will dissolve in liquids. However, we don't advise mixing it with a warm beverage because there is evidence that heat will degrade the resistant starch properties.
