💜 Are you getting enough of this?

Happy High Noon (EST). Get your Tushy Ottoman, the stool that gets your stool flowing!

Let’s dig into today’s bite:

  • Are you getting enough of this? Two types of fiber.

  • Open Journal: Bathroom royalty.

  • Did You Know: Stress & digestion.

Are you lacking fiber?

We all know that fiber helps keep us regular but there are so many other benefits that you might be missing out on. Because most of us don't get enough fiber.

But first, let's look at the two different types of fiber:

  • Soluble fiber: Attracts water and turns into gel during digestion. This slows digestion down.

  • Insoluble fiber: Bulks up your stools. It helps food pass faster through your stomach and intestines.

Both are super important btw…

Women ages 50 and younger should consume 25 grams per day.

Women ages 51 and older should consume 21 grams per day.

Here's why it's so important to get the recommended amount of fiber:

  1. Stabilizes blood sugar levels by slowing down insulin release (aka your fat-storing hormone). Reducing your risk for type 2 diabetes.

  2. Helps with appetite control and keeps you fuller longer.

  3. Boost your metabolism because you don't actually digest fiber.

  4. Keeps you pooping. If you want to know if you’re pooping the right way-check this bite out.

Don’t forget to get your Tushy Ottoman to improve your poo experience. If ya wanna feel like royalty, I highly recommend upgrading to a bidet. We just did and it's absolutely life-changing!

If you're still wiping or smearing after using the toilet, you need to make the switch. It's a more hygienic and refreshing experience. My whole freaking family uses it, even our 7-year-old! Trust me, you won't regret it.

Did You Know? Like Really Know…

Stress can affect digestion, what nutrients the intestines absorb, AND your bowel movements.

It affects how quickly your food moves through your body causing either diarrhea or constipation.

Ever had a nervous poop?

If you have a chronic bowel disorder, you might notice this more. Because of gut nerves being more sensitive and changes in gut flora.

It’s crazy how much stress impacts our bodies, even down to how we poo. If you’re feeling stressed do something that you love and focus on the things you can control.
