Everything you need to know about the fibre in Purition: Powering your gut health and beyond

EYNTK about fibre in purition

As a nutritionist, I'm constantly on the lookout for products that promote a holistic approach to well-being. Purition shakes certainly get my stamp of approval as they are a frontrunner in this category, offering not only a good amount of protein but also a significant fibre content. Let's delve into the specifics of Purition's fibre sources, exploring why they're beneficial and how they contribute to a healthy gut and overall health.

Demystifying fibre content: What's on the Purition label?

Both Purition's Original and Vegan ranges boast a healthy amount of fibre, typically ranging from 6 to 8 grams per serving. This is significant because most people fall short of the recommendeddaily intake of fibre, which is around 30 grams for adults.

Here's a closer look at the specific fibre sources found in Purition:

Original range
Almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds (all good sources of both soluble and insoluble fibre), psyllium husk (excellent source of soluble fibre), flaxseed (rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre)

Vegan range
Pea protein (also contains some fibre), almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds (all good sources of both soluble and insoluble fibre), psyllium husk (excellent source of soluble fibre), flaxseed (rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre)

The fibre powerhouse: Soluble vs. Insoluble

Purition cleverly incorporates both soluble and insoluble fibre into their shakes. Let's understand the benefits of each:

Soluble fibre
Acts like a gel in your digestive system, slowing down digestion and promoting feelings of fullness. It also helps regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Purition's sources include psyllium husk and some pea protein.

Insoluble fibre 
Doesn't dissolve in water and adds bulk to your stool, promoting regularity and gut health. Sources in Purition include flaxseed, almonds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.

By including a diversity of fibre sources, Purition ensures you reap the benefits of both soluble and insoluble fibre, contributing to a healthy gut microbiome and digestive system.

Why fibre matters: Beyond gut health

While gut health is a significant benefit of consuming adequate fibre, it's not the only advantage. Here's how fibre from Purition contributes to overall well-being:

Promotes satiety
Fibre keeps you feeling fuller for longer, reducing cravings and aiding in weight management.

Supports blood sugar control
Soluble fibre helps regulate blood sugar levels, which isparticularly important for those with diabetes or pre-diabetes.

Reduces cholesterol
Fibre can help lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels, promoting heart health.

Supports a healthy gut microbiome
Fibre feeds the good bacteria in your gut, essential for optimal digestion, immune function, and overall health.

The Purition advantage: Quality fibre for a functional approach

Purition's focus on high-quality fibre sources goes beyond just providing adequate amounts. They've thoughtfully chosen ingredients that offer a diversity of benefits. This, combined with their quality protein content, makes Purition shakes a winning choice for anyone seeking a balanced and functional approach to nutrition.
