The bacteria in our guts can break down food the body can’t digest, produce important nutrients, regulate the immune system, and protect against harmful germs. And while we can’t control all the factors that go into maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, we can manipulate the balance of our microbes by paying attention to what we eat. Shilpa Ravella shares the best foods for a healthy gut.

Thanks for a good video. It is helpful, but does not explain that there are 3 types of fibers: bulking (like wheat bran, cellulose), viscous (like beta-glucan and psyllium) and fermentable (like resistant starch and inulin). Only fermentable fibers have the range of benefits you explain - not the other types. Some viscous fibers (beta-glucan) are also fermentable, but psyllium is only minimallly fermented. We have to stop referring to dietary fiber like it is one category. It is not.
