By now you’ve probably heard us say that fiber is essential to your diet. But you may not understand how fiber works and why it is so important for not only colon health, but overall health.
When there is enough fiber in your diet, the fiber in the colon ferments and changes into beneficial bacteria. This provides numerous health benefits including destruction of other harmful bacteria found in the colon. Fiber keeps your colon and gastrointestinal tract healthy by normalizing bowel movements and lowering your risk of developing hemorrhoids.
