Fiber helps to clear your skin.
Adding fiber to the diet can lower blood pressure, solve a myriad of digestion ills, stomp out yeast infections, and reduce cancer risks up to 50% in many people.
Fiber helps insure things are moving along well in your digestive system taking 12 hours or less to complete the cycle.
When food sits in the body over that amount of time a nasty thing happens. To put it bluntly, it begins to putrefy and rot.
Clear Skin means healthy digestive system.
Lack of fiber causes digestive slowness disruption that leads to all kinds of diseases. It has been linked to glandular diseases and is widely known to promote yeast overgrowth in the lower intestines.
So if keeping yeast at a minimum is one of the most important steps you can take for clear skin and overall health.
Fiber is one of the easiest things to get in your diet. Artificial fiber preparations usually contain tons of excess sugar as an added ingredient which yeast loves. Your best choice is natural fiber from fruits and vegetables.
How Much Fiber Should You Get Each Day?
There is no FDA recommendation for fiber but medical science says 20-35 grams per day. In some cases more may be appropriate.
The rule of thumb is to eat enough to get good results (things moving along regularly with at least one bowel movement every 24 hours), but not so much it creates bloating. 25 grams per day should work for most people.
