Why is Fiber Important For Detoxing?

There are many components to a healthy detox, but one of the most important is fiber. Since toxins and cannabis compounds tend to stick to the intestines and colon when other particles move on, they build up unless they’re removed. Too much buildup of toxins inside your body may result in weight gain and can stop nutrient absorption. Learn more about how fiber detox can help you avoid these problems and why we include it in our detox formulation.

Choose Fiber for Cleansing

When you eat more fiber, you help your body flush out toxins and cannabis compounds. You want them to get out, not clog up your body forever! A fiber detox can literally grab hold of toxins on a molecular level and pull them out of your system. Usually, you won’t need to add fiber to your diet unless you aren’t eating enough to begin with or you’re trying to heighten your body’s cleansing processes.

In addition to helping you rid your body of cannabis, fiber detoxes are popular with people who are trying to eat healthier and lose weight. If you’re trying to detox naturally, add fiber supplements to an already fiber-rich diet.

Different Types of Fiber

There are two types of fiber that are used for different functions: insoluble and soluble fiber. One of these fibers is for cleansing your system, while the other can help with blood glucose levels and cholesterol.

Insoluble Fiber

This type of fiber does not dissolve in water. It stays intact and travels through your digestive system whole to encourage waste elimination. We use this insoluble fiber in our detoxes, but other detoxes also use it to improve intestinal health, decrease constipation, and reduce the risk of colon cancer. While you can find fiber in detoxes, you can also get it naturally from foods, including:

  • Whole Wheat & Grains
  • Wheat & Corn Bran
  • Brown Rice
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Onions
  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • Tomatoes

Soluble Fiber

This second type of fiber does dissolve in water and has different benefits from insoluble fiber. The gel-like substance that forms after you mix soluble fiber powder and water together can lower cholesterol, manage blood glucose levels, and help you feel full for longer. Finding soluble fiber in your food means eating more of the following:

  • Oatmeal
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Oranges
  • Strawberries
  • Lentils
  • Beans
  • Nuts
