Fiber, The Natural Need For Much More

Average fiber consumption has declined drastically in developed countries over the past few decades. Colonic health is affected by the amount of fiber consumed, a process by which the mucus layer responds to dietary modifications and subsequent bacterial changes. The frequent consumption of highly-processed food stripped of many naturally-occurring components has transformed the modern diet into one that does not promote a healthy gut. Very often, these “modern” food choices are low in dietary fiber and subsequently contribute to a lower diversity of microbiota. This is especially true for people living in affluent industrialized societies.
