How to be a Good Host

“If the furnace is hot enough, it’ll burn anything.” This theory has been thrown around in endurance circles for years.

But what if fiber’s role in health is not simply to produce a smooth movement, so to speak? In fact, the most important role of fiber in human health is to nourish the friendly microbes that colonize our bodies…and that’s a big party to feed! Over the past 15 years, science has discovered that humans host a very powerful army of bacteria, yeast, protozoa, fungi, etc. in our bodies, referred to as the microbiome.
