The typical Western diet lacks the necessary amount of fibre required by the body to support and regenerate the gut micro-biome. A poor diet consisting of , processed foods, refined sugar and carbohydrates, destroys the balance of bacteria in the gut and causes issues for the immune system.
Fibre promotes the growth of good bacteria in the gut and removes toxins and waste from the colon. Without it, the colon gets backed up and we experience digestive disorders which can lead to a myriad of other health conditions.
People often resort to colon hydrotherapy, laxatives or lab-produced supplements with the intention to cleanse their colon of the build-up from their poor health and lifestyle.
If the thought of having a plastic tube flush liquid through your rectum makes you feel uneasy, don’t worry. Incorporating hemp foods into your daily diet will boost your fibre intake, and help to cleanse your colon naturally.
It’s also cost effective and much better for you.
The colon is responsible for absorbing water and nutrients, and eliminating waste in the form of faeces. After the nutrients are extracted from our food, the stuff that is left over moves into the colon where it is broken down further, and the waste material moves to the rectum where it prepares to leave the body.
If bowel movements are infrequent or irregular, toxic residue from undigested food can remain in the colon. A high fibre diet naturally cleanses your colon, improves your immune system, prevents health issues, and increases energy.
Insoluble fibre found in hemp foods is non-digestible so it passes through your digestive system, encouraging undigested food to move along with it. Often referred to as roughage, insoluble fibre adds bulks up your poop which regulates your bowel movements.
According to Nutrition Australia, the recommended daily intake of fibre is approximately 30 grams for men and 25 grams for women. A 30g serving (2 tablespoons), of Hemp Factory raw hemp protein powder contains 8 grams of fibre. That’s almost one third of an adult’s daily fibre requirements.
It’s easy to gradually add more fibre into your diet, but be sure to increase fibre intake slowly as drastic increases may cause some people to experience stomach discomfort. Try adding raw hemp protein powder to your smoothies and shakes or topping your salads, cereal or desserts with raw hemp hearts.
