Is Fiber inflammatory for the gut?

Answered on July 29, 2014

Green fibers such as Brocolli, Kale, Brussel Sprouts. Are they inflammatory to the gut? I've read this a few times but it seems incorrect to me. I'm currently on a paleo gut-healing diet and I eat a lot of this stuff, it makes me feel great. Should it only be eaten cooked or something?

You can't outgrow the bad without feeding the good. You can't feed the good without feeding the bad.

I find insoluble fibre is really inflammatory. Soluble fibre is fine.

inflammation is not necessarily a bad thing. Chronic inflammation is bad -- acute inflammation can be beneficial.

Weight lifting causes a massive inflammatory response. But, with proper rest, lowers systematic inflammation.

This is similar for fiber. As it ferments in the intestines, it creates an inflammatory response. But this is a necessary part of bacteria production. Over time, the proper amount/ratio of bacteria will heal your gut, thus reducing systematic inflammation.

Dietary fiber promotes a shift in the gut toward different types of beneficial bacteria. Fiber is good for more than laxation, which means helping food move through the intestines. People eat only about half of the 30 to 35 grams of daily fiber that is recommended.Dietary fiber alters gut bacteria, supports gastrointestinal health.

Does resistant starch (like raw potato starch), as a type of prebiotic fiber, adversely affect the gut if someone is suffering from dysbiosis? Would it potentially feed the pathogenic bacteria instead of Bifidus, etc?

It depends on the fiber as well as your gut bacteria. If you have the wrong gut bacteria it can cause quite a lot of issues when eating FODMAPS, hence protocols such as the GAPS diet.

If it's not bothering you, don't worry about.
