Fiber

The slow breakdown of carbs and absorbtion of sugar.

How it functions:

  1. Enzymes break down food
  2. Fiber binds to the food
  3. Helps waste move through the body

Benefits:

  • Blood sugar control
  • helps move yeast and fungus out of the body
  • 40% lower risk of heart disease
  • 7% lower stroke risk

Too much? Too little?

Eating too much fiber causes food digestion to slow/stop temporarily, diarrhea, malab-

sorbtion, and constipation.


Not eating enough fiber results in bile being recirculated through the body and becomes concentrated with toxins, which

leads to diseases.
