Fiber- keep it moving!

A high-fiber diet has many advantages, including bowel regularity and decreased risk of developing diverticulitis, high blood pressure and diabetes.

(The Harvard School of Public Health recommends consuming at least 20 grams of fiber each day from dietary sources, not supplements.)

Also called roughage or bulk, fiber is found in many fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes.

Currently with approximately 80% of corn and whole grains in North America purportedly GMO, you have to be careful with your source selection. Fortunately with so many organic sources available, it should never be difficult to add fiber to your diet to obtain the natural benefits!
