Lima Beans for Fiber & Gut Health

I like lima beans! And according to my afternoon reading feed, they’re good for the gut!

🌱 “Eating a high fiber diet can help keep your gut in tip-top shape.”

🌱 “Eating beans (like lima beans) can help support your healthy gut bacteria. That may reduce your risk of health conditions like colon cancer and type 2 diabetes.”

🌱 “Bacteria in your gut ferment the fiber found in beans. This increases the production of compounds called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs serve as important fuel for your gut bacteria, so they benefit your gut and intestinal lining health.”

🌱 “The bad news? Most peeps don’t consume nearly enough fiber. The good news? You can. Eating a balanced diet that includes fiber-rich lima beans will help you reach the daily recommended value of 28 grams of dietary fiber.”
