Apple Fiber: SO Good for You

Find out all the good things fiber can do for you…

Let’s face it… most of us don’t really pay attention to getting enough fiber.

One thing’s for sure… most of us don’t even come close to getting the recommended 20-35 grams a day (for healthy adults). Statistics say most of us eat maybe 15 grams a day. Not even close. And that’s why so many serious health issues are on the rise. Like tumors and tumor-diseases.

Are you one of the majority that don’t exactly load their plates up with vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and beans? You sure don’t find them in fast food meals.

Americans are definitely eating more prepared and processed foods. Consumption of food prepared away from home increased from 18% of our total calories, to 32% of total calories between 1977 and 1996. All this eating out has more calories and fat per meal than home-cooked foods. And less fiber too.

How Fiber Works

Fiber particles are like tiny sponges that absorb water, toxins and cholesterol, then carry them away from your intestinal lining and out of your body. This helps keep your gut clean of toxic sludge, harmful yeast, bacteria and parasites, so that you can absorb nutrients efficiently. You really need that to be healthy!

Benefits from Adequate Fiber Intake

Regular cleansing with fiber prevents most health challenges!

Improved Nutrient Absorption
More energy and better physical performance. Sharper mind and better memory recall.

Enhanced Waste Elimination
Optimal intestinal and lymphatic cleansing. Binds toxins for elimination to reduce symptoms of industrial-age toxic load. Lower cholesterol and better circulation.

Energized Immune System
Fewer colds and infections with shorter duration. Reduce or even eliminate allergic reactions.

Optimized Weight
Loss of fat and inches for better body shape. Steady blood sugar levels.

Economical – Fiber makes you feel fuller sooner, so you eat less.
Fiber slows the absorption of fats and sugars so you have more sustained energy. Better endurance, rather than sugar-rushes and cravings that lead to overeating, fat storage and body bulges.

When You Don’t Get Enough Fiber…

Constipation, Hemorrhoids, Fissures

Fiber is particularly beneficial for pushing out waste.
When you don’t consume enough Fiber, the food you eat can sit in your digestive tract for too long – days and days. As this toxic waste builds up, your stools become dry and difficult to pass. The extra strain to push out dry stools can lead to painful hemorrhoids and fissures.

Decreased Immunity

Adequate Elimination Strengthens Your Immune System
When waste sits for too long in your digestive tract, your immune system is kept busy fighting the toxins instead of keeping you healthy. You will have more colds, flus, infections and other diseases.

Weight Gain

High-fiber diets help keep your weight in check.
Fibrous foods take longer to chew and digest so you feel full for longer and less likely to overindulge during a meal. They’re generally lower in calories than heavily processed foods that tend to be low in fiber (and nutrients), and high in calories. Can leave you feeling hungry shortly after eating. That makes you more likely to grab an extra snack, get a second helping or go overboard during your next meal. Eventually, all the extra calories contribute to weight gain.

High Cholesterol

When you don’t consume enough fiber, particularly soluble fiber, your LDL cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) level tends to skyrocket, causing build up on arterial walls, hardening your arteries and increasing your risk of cardiovascular troubles. Soluble fiber (found primarily in oats and fruits) binds with bile acids and helps excrete LDL through your stools (Colorado State University Extension website).

High Blood Sugar

As soluble fiber travels through your digestive tract, it swells when it comes into contact with moisture. The resulting gel-like substance slows digestion of nutrients, including sugar, which can be particularly beneficial if you have blood sugar issues. When your fiber intake is lacking, you might have a harder time managing your blood sugar, resulting in dangerously high blood glucose levels. Chronic high blood glucose can permanently damage vital organs, nerves and blood vessels.

Important to Know… Fiber NEEDS WATER

Fiber must have abundant amounts of water (preferably Energized Water) to activate its incredible benefits. Water alone or fiber alone, don’t do enough.

Substantial amounts of both Fiber and Water are necessary to activate the process.

You must consume adequate fiber every day, to improve the length and quality of your life.

As we’ve said before, to maintain or regain your health, there are two essential things that your body must do very well:

1. Absorb Adequate Nutrition
2. Eliminate Waste Effectively

Adequate Fiber Intake Facilitates Both!

The reason I am repeating these two health basics is to drive the point home – they are critically important to everyone, especially if you have any health challenges. But they are just as critical for healthy people who want to stay that way.

Improving your digestion will enhance your nutrient absorption and waste elimination, thereby energizing your immune system for overall increased health, vitality and healing.

When your body does these two things efficiently, all aspects of your health improve – everything from normalizing your weight and blood sugar, to improving your immune system that fights off colds and other infections. Even more impressive, research shows that adequate fiber intake may reverse or guard against colon diseases by accelerating the elimination of toxins.

With more Fiber, every aspect of your health will improve.

More About Apple Fiber

Whole unprocessed Apple Fiber is quite magical with its ability to bind toxins and hold onto them until they are eliminated from your body.

One of the biggest causes of health problems in the world today are industrial toxins that accumulate in our bodies. Keeping toxins out of your body is one of the best things you could do to restore your health.

Symptoms of high levels of industrial toxins include headaches, migraines, vertigo, sense of unreality, motion sickness, inability to concentrate all different from the symptoms of a flu or head cold. People who suffer from chronic fatigue could feel this way all the time.

Auto-intoxification or self-pollution is when your body is unable to get rid of the toxins that are being generated during normal metabolic processes. When the metabolites reach your blood, they can affect your thinking in a big way. You can’t focus, concentrate, remember words, your hands tremble and you start getting nervous ticks. These toxins start in the cells. They are transferred into your lymphatic system and if you aren’t moving enough, they will just continue to accumulate. Sort of like stinky water in a swamp.

Excess toxins are also set aside in the colon in undigested, putrefied layers that coat the inside with thin layers of waste. When your body extracts water from the colon for its internal needs, the toxins are carried with the water into the bloodstream. The body then tries to get rid of them. If the filtering capacity of the liver and kidneys is overwhelmed, the toxins will be sent to the lymphatic system to be parked somewhere in low circulation tissues, which include fat, joints, cartilage and bones. Exercise and eating lots of fiber are good ways to start counteracting this process.

Apple Fiber with its high pectin content and both soluble and insoluble fiber is really good at helping you scrub-out toxins.

You know the ditty An apple a day keeps the doctor away. There is much to that, perhaps because of the cleansing benefit of apples.

Our Apple Fiber is naturally occurring, extracted with minimal processing from whole juiced apples. We don’t remove the natural pectin or add any back. The peel and dried apple pulp are included, rich in soluble and insoluble apple fibers, with all the naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants retained.
