Do Low-Fibre Diets Cause Constipation?

Low-Fiber Foods and Constipation

Constipation caused by low-fiber foods is something that affects more than 100 million North Americans. It puts a major damper on all aspects of our everyday lives, from weight gain to fatigue to serious disease. Increasing our daily fiber intake is the key to combating constipation. We can do this by swapping foods we currently consume that contain low amount of nutrients (chips, pop, candy, confections, dairy, etc.) for foods that are very fiber-rich, including fruit, vegetables, beans, whole grains, flax and chia seeds, and Omega 3 NutraCleanse™.

The Key to Overcoming Chronic Constipation

Think of fiber as a broom, and its job is to sweep clean your intestinal tract (especially your colon). If you don’t get enough fiber (or enough water to assist the fiber), your intestinal tract will never be clean. This leads to a build-up of not only old food and waste, but also of unhealthy bacteria.

When you introduce high-fiber foods to your diet, you clean your body from the inside out, and allow friendly bacteria to grow and eventually be able to combat the ill effects of the built-up harmful bacteria in your gut, such as E. coli.

Here are two quick reference lists for you that show which foods are low-fiber foods, and which ones are high-fiber foods:

Low-Fiber Foods

  • Meat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Processed foods
  • Fried foods
  • Fast foods
  • Commercial baking
  • Candy
  • Soda and juice

High-Fiber Foods

  • Vegetables (beets, carrots, leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, artichokes)
  • Fruit (oranges, watermelon, apples, pears, figs, dates, prunes)
  • Beans
  • Legumes
  • Whole, sprouted grains (quinoa, steel-cut oats, etc.)
  • Flax and chia seeds
  • Omega 3 NutraCleanse™

Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ is a great way to incorporate more fiber into your diet, because you can simply add 1/3 cup to any smoothie, soup, stew, oatmeal, or anything else you like. You don’t have to suffer from chronic constipation!

Do You Get Enough Fibre?

The topic of fibre is everywhere, from cereal commercials promising extra helpings of psyllium, to doctors advising we eat more of it during annual check-ups.

It sounds like a good thing, but why?

Fibre is a really big deal when it comes to digestive health. Think of it as a broom for your intestinal tract: it saves the day by sweeping clean your colon, which is imperative for a healthy bowel. Since overall health really begins in this area of the body, it’s incredibly important that we keep it clean and working well.

So, how do you get more of this amazing fibre into your diet?

Fruit and Veggies

Fruit and veggies are a great source of both soluble (the meat of the plant) and insoluble (the peels) fibre. They help create healthy bowel movements, and give your body a massive injection of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Corn, because you can’t break it down to digest it very well, is actually a great source of insoluble fibre—it stays intact, but sweeps everything out of the body with it.

Whole Grains

Grains like sprouted buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa, and steel cut oats are fantastic sources of soluble fibre. They also lower cholesterol. There’s a huge difference between unprocessed or less-processed grains, and very processed grains.

Always buy sprouted and brown varieties, because they retain the most fibre. When grains have been heavily processed (like white bread and rice), most of the original nutrients (including the fibre) has been stripped away. For example, whole grain wraps have 5 grams of fiber, while white or coloured ones have only 1 gram.

Quick note: dairy and meat contain zero fibre. FYI.

High-Fibre Foods

This is where it gets tricky: there are a lot of commercial products out there that are marketed to consumers as being equal, but all supplements are definitely not created equal. Some are really processed, and therefore have half the fibre they should have.

Because NutraCleanseTM contains minimal, raw, relatively unprocessed ingredients like ground flax seed, it works wonders for the digestive tract. Teeming with high-fiber ingredients that are medicinally helpful and supportive to the body, it really packs a massive punch when it comes to supplementing your digestive tract with the nutrients it needs.

Just one third of a cup of NutraCleanseTM contains 14 grams of fibre—now that’s amazing. To find out where NutraCleanseTM is sold near you, visit our map of retailers HERE.

Kids Love NutraCleanse™!

Friends, 44% of people who use NutraCleanse™ are between the ages of 25 and 44. That means that there are a lot of adults out there who love our product. Why not give it to your kids, too?!

NutraCleanse™ is made with whole ingredients, and is mainly comprised of flax seed, which makes it a safe food to give to children.

Why Kids Should Eat It

Why give NutraCleanse™ to your children? Because chances are, they don’t consume enough fibre. The flax component in our product ensures that your little ones will get the fibre they need, without resorting to over-the-counter alternatives.

Extra fibre can relieve constipation, help create a healthier digestive system, and assist in lowering blood sugar.

How Kids Should Eat It

Three popular ways to sneak NutraCleanse™ into your child’s diet are:

-In a smoothie

-In oatmeal

-In baking

Some people have even told us that they mix it with Nutella and spread it on their child’s toast for breakfast! Get creative, and let your kids reap the rewards.

Want Better Digestive Health?

We all suffer from tummy troubles from time to time, but what happens when they become the new normal?

Having chronic digestive problems is a definite red flag that something is very wrong, and it shouldn’t be ignored. Your gut is like your second brain, and many of your everyday functions and processes are affected by how healthy it is–or isn’t.

Here are 10 ideas to help you improve your digestive health:

Quality Over Quantity

Quality food is imperative for good digestive health. We’re talking about food that comes from nature, like fruits and vegetables, legumes, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

(Not packaged foods, or foods that are high in added sugar, filler, or preservatives.)

Chew Your Food Better

This might sound silly, but we live in a country full of busy people. Our culture doesn’t place emphasis on relaxation and rest, and we eat the way we live.

(Fast.)

By not chewing your food well and taking the time to eat properly, our digestive system pays a steep price. So slow down, enjoy your food, and let your tummy work the way it’s supposed to.

Drink Lots of Water

We know you know this, but honestly? None of us heed the advice very well. But by creating a chronically dehydrated state within our bodies, we force our digestive system to try and process what it needs to, without the right tools.

To properly digest food, our stomach and intestines need to have a certain level of lubrication and liquid, and that comes from water.

Incorporate Probiotics

Because these suckers work. By routinely feeding yourself stuff that your body doesn’t like, you build an irregular balance of good-to-bad bacteria in your gut. To get that balance back to normal, probiotics are necessary.

Basically, you’re swallowing live bacteria that will go down your throat and into your tummy, where they will live on to fight the icky bad guys.

Do it.

Prioritize Exercise

We know—this one’s a no-brainer. You need to move your body to get things moving (if you know what we mean), and exercise is how you do it. Even a 20-minute walk every day can make SUCH a difference to your digestive health.

Your belly will thank you for it, we promise.

Try Fermented Foods

Hint: we’re not talking about grapes, or liquid products derived from them. (Ha.)

We’re talking about fermented vegetables, kombucha, good quality yogurt, kefir, etc. Fermented foods are super high in good bacteria, and over time, they can have a huge impact on the health of your digestive environment.

Get NutraCleanse

Yep—we’re plugging our own product here. But seriously? The main ingredient in NutraCleanse™ (flax seed) is incredibly high in fibre and other nutrients that aid a healthy digestive system. As adults, we’re supposed to be raking in about 34 grams of fibre a day—which is waaaayyy more than the 11 grams we actually take in. (On average, of course.)

An incredibly easy way to increase your fibre intake, is by mixing 1/3 cup of NutraCleanse™ (per day) into smoothies, oatmeal, baked goods, and more.

De-Stress

Here we go with that “second brain” thing again. Stress plays a massive role in your health—actually, scratch that—the way you handle stress plays a massive role in your health.

And stress can mess with your stomach.

Although most people think the mind is what takes the brunt of your stress, that’s not necessarily true. Because of your brain-to-gut connection (both organs were originally one, and the term ‘enteric nervous system’ is used in the medical field to discuss that connection), stress can appear in the form of stomach knots, constipation, indigestion, and more.

So what do you do?

Lower that stress level and learn to manage stress better. You can do this by exercising regularly, eating well, meditating and practicing yoga.

Give Your Liver Some Love

Essentially, if you can boost your liver, you can heal your bad gut. By adding foods like leafy greens, beets, carrots, bitters, dandelion, and milk thistle, you inadvertently improve the health of your digestive system.

Tune Into Your Body

Again, we’re busy people who live busy lives. But by taking the time to listen to your body, we can really help to manage stress, know when a certain food isn’t working well for us, notice when a certain food is, and recognize the need for downtime and sleep.

By listening to your body, you can put all of the ideas listed above into play—and your digestive system will flourish and be healthy.

Spring Clean Your Diet with NutraCleanse™

It’s almost spring, which means the much anticipated spring break is just around the corner! This time off school and work for kids and parents can be a perfect opportunity to jump-start a cleaner, kinder, healthier diet.

Here’s how to spring clean your diet with NutraCleanse™:

Cut Sugar

Sugar is one of the leading causes of inflammation, and we all eat way too much of it. That’s because it’s in almost everything we consume!

But guess what?

There’s zero sugar in NutraCleanse™. With only five ingredients, NutraCleanse™ really is a kind product that boasts ingredients that heal.

Add Fibre

Adding fibre to your diet can drastically improve your health and well-being. Since NutraCleanse™ is comprised primarily of ground flax seed (which is crazy high in fibre), adding just 1/3 scoop to your daily food intake can score you major health points.

Prioritize Omega Fatty Acids

Essential omega fatty acids are super important to everyone’s overall health–but especially kids’.

Omega fatty acids promote brain health, so it’s definitely something a growing brain needs to perform optimally.

Eat Clean

Eating clean means knowing exactly what foods you’re putting in your body, and making sure that they’ll help to aid, and not hinder. As stated above, NutraCleanse™ is composed of five ingredients. These include:

  • flax seed
  • psyllium husk
  • dandelion root powder
  • fenugreek seed powder
  • burdock root powder

Each one of these ingredients is whole and healthy. There’s nothing hidden in our product–just 100% wholesome, simple, clean ingredients.

Drink Lots of Water

Drinking water is important for flushing unwanted debris from your body. When you’re adding NutraCleanse™ to your diet, drinking lots of water is a great way to assist the extra fibre in its spring cleaning efforts.

For ideas on how NutraCleanse™ can help your body re-calibrate, read more of our blogs! There are over 1000 locations across Canada and the United States that carry our product. Find those locations HERE.

Fibre-Rich, In-Season, Local Produce

Autumn is here, and along with the cooler weather comes a totally different variety of local produce. Gone are the berries, rhubarb, and melon (spring and summer fibre-rich superstars!), but here comes a brand-new plethora of delicious, fibre-rich substitutes.

The following list contains 10 local, seasonal, fall fruits and veggies that are super high in fibre:

Fall Fibre-Rich Fruit

  • Apples: traditional fall fruit with 4.4 grams of dietary fibre per medium apple.
  • Pears: ripe at the same time as apples, with 5.5 grams per medium pear.
  • Pumpkin: pumpkin contains .5 grams per 100 grams.
  • Figs: these suckers contain roughly 5 grams of fibre per 4 fresh figs.
  • Cranberries: they’re super rich in antioxidants and contain 2 grams of fibre per half cup of raw, fresh cranberries.

fibre-rich foods

Fall Fibre-Rich Vegetables

  • Winter Squash: 1.5 grams of fibre per 100 grams of squash.
  • Parsnips: They babies boast 4.9 grams of dietary fibre per 100 grams of parsnips!
  • Turnips: 1.8 grams of fibre per 100 grams of turnips.
  • Sweet Potatoes: These yummy gems contain 3 grams of fibre per 100 grams of sweet potatoes.
  • Yams: Even higher than sweet potatoes, yams contain 4.1 grams of fibre per 100 grams.

Taking advantage of local and in-season produce also equals other health advantages. Local produce spends less time in transit (than, say, pineapple), and because it’s in-season, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and all the other good things are at their peak.

And you can taste the difference! When carrots are in-season, they’re sweet and earthy as opposed to relatively tasteless. You’ve probably noticed the difference in taste when it comes to certain foods at different times of the year, right?

Also, from a digestive health perspective, the fibre-rich foods that are cultivated each fall are so good for your gut. Our bodies crave fresh, in-season, fibre-rich foods!

To find recipes using these fibre-rich foods, visit out website and check out our blog and our recipes page. To add some easy fibre to smoothies, soups, stews, and baking, try NutraCleanse™, which is full of fibre-rich flax seeds.

How to Help Your Body Cleanse, Naturally

For the past decade or so, commercial cleansing has been all the rage. Whether it’s juicing, drinking nothing but cayenne and lemon juice, fasting, or actually taking a cleanse kit, we all seem to think that cleansing our bodies would be beneficial.

But our bodies are built to clean themselves—we cleanse everyday in ways we don’t usually think about. Our kidneys and liver flush toxins, we sweat out unwanted fluids, and our bowels excrete excess and unneeded food in the form of liquid and solid waste.

If we want to help our bodies cleanse further, here are a few ways to ensure optimum cleansing function, naturally:

Drink Plenty of Fluids

Especially filtered water. Why? Because the water that comes from our kitchen taps is often over-treated and contains too many chemicals. You can use a filter on your tap for an added layer of protection, which will assist the kidneys in their detoxification efforts.

Sweat, Baby, Sweat

(And as often as possible.) Your skin is a major toxin elimination organ, and sweating is the easiest way to purge unwanted substances from our bodies.

Focus on Daily Elimination

Having a bowel movement every day is imperative to your body’s natural cleansing process. Try incorporating NutraCleanse™ into your diet, to assist in increased digestive health. Flax seed is the main ingredient in our product, which is super high in healthy fibre and omega fatty acids. The fibre in NutraCleanse™ can help to ensure regular elimination—which is essential to cleansing your body of unwanted toxins, properly.

To order NutraCleanse™ online or find a retailer near you, visit our website.

Be as Lean as Possible

Fat-soluble toxins reside in fat cells. Therefore, the less body fat you have, the less room there is for chemicals to hang out.

Wash Your Produce

Fruits and vegetables are likely the most important ingredient to maintaining a healthy body, but are often sprayed and treated with herbicides and pesticides—chemicals that are harmful to our bodies and hard to eliminate. So be sure to wash your produce well!

If you’re unsure as to which fruits and vegetables are sprayed with the most chemicals, see David Suzuki’s Dirty Dozen list HERE.

Get Outside

Maximize your time in the sun! Vitamin D is incredibly important to overall health, so breathe in as much high-quality air as possible.

By doing the things we recommend above, you can assist your body in its natural toxin elimination efforts, which will ensure optimum cleansing.
