Geez Louise + the Fibre Gap
There’s been a lot of hype around fibre, thanks to some new research that’s popped up. Like what kinds or why you should consume more. The simple fact is that most of us are not getting enough of it. Health Canada recommends that adults get 25 to 38 grams of fibre daily. That’s a pretty stark contrast between the reality, which is that national surveys indicate that only about 5% of the population meets those suggested fibre recommendations. And that’s not great because inadequate intake has been called a public health concern.
That means an astounding 95% of Canadians are not receiving even the minimum daily recommended amount of fibre. That deficiency is what experts refer to as “The Fibre Gap.”
The good news is there are plenty of ways to boost fibre in your diet. Let’s break it all down and learn how you can start working toward a healthier and happier gut.
Why Is Fibre So Important?
Fibre is the first, and potentially the most powerful solution to restoring a healthy gut situation. Not to mention the numerous benefits to your overall health. Scientists are constantly discovering new evidence on the crucial role that prebiotic fibre has on the health of our body and mind.
Why It’s So Good for Our Gut
The digestive tract is a community of trillions of tiny microbes, living together in our gut and working to keep us healthy. Just like you, those little microbe buddies need food to do their best work. But not any food will do - enter prebiotic fibre! Prebiotic fibre is an ideal food for our gut microbes. When the gut microbes enjoy that specific type of fibre, they create byproducts that help your body function to its fullest potential. Things like boosting metabolism, strengthening the immune system, and improving digestion.
Closing the Fibre Gap
One way to start addressing the fibre gap is by introducing more whole foods into our diet. Stuff like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes. But in addition to fibre-rich foods, there’s Geez Louise. Geez Louise was created to bridge the gap in the form of a really delicious drink that includes 5 grams of prebiotic fibre per can. Fun fact: that’s an easy 18% of your daily recommended fibre intake.
