My opinion about fiber is that we eat too much it, it is necessary in very tiny amounts (to nourish the good gut bugs) but my choice of fiber would be an unripe green banana or a raw sweet potato stick occasionally.
Over-eating carbs/grains (including bleached) every day? (let’s get real?) To me that is the equivalent of stuffing your gut with raw saw dust; literally? (literally creating a petri dish in your gut to culture and feed bad and foreign bacterial strains)
And then your going to throw some refined sugar (sucrose; polysaccharides) on top of that? (really?) Meanwhile if your eating high fructose corn syrup and adding lactose (galactose) from dairy to your intake all that left over undigested fiber starts absorbing that HFCS (not blunting its absorption) and starts punching holes in your gut lining? (what a mess?) The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that everyone limit consumption of all added sugars, including HFCS and sucrose. FDA participated in the development of the Dietary Guidelines and fully supports this recommendation.…More
Amount is key and always will be the key to anything your eating or doing too much of one thing and not enough of the other, no balance?
I imagine a case scenario:
Where you have 30 boxes of shredded wheat; oh my goodness I must eat all this shredded wheat before it goes bad, why waste all this good food and besides providing energy, carb-containing foods such as whole grains and dietary fiber can lower the chance of heart and blood vessel disease, because “the so called experts” at the Mayo Clinic said so…
Now freeze frame hold that thought?
How much are we talking about eating?
Once a week?
Once a month?
Will it have the exact opposite effect and up your chances on getting heart and blood vessel disease when you eat too much of it? YES IT WILL!
Soil based probiotics contain the entire spectrum for digesting all the big three; fiber, meat and fat compared to the store bought probiotics that either die in the gut or pass right though you; that contain strains that are more for digesting fat and meat not fiber. Soil based spectrum probiotics cannot be replicated, duplicated or cultured in a laboratory very easily that is what makes them so hard to study.
