Dietary fiber is a broad term that refers to the non-digestible components of fruits and vegetables. Gut microbes break down certain types of fiber, releasing micronutrients trapped in the fiber matrix and producing beneficial metabolic byproducts, such as short-chain fatty acids. Fiber exerts a wide array of beneficial health effects, influencing metabolic health, and may be an important, if overlooked, component of ketogenic diets. 

In this Aliquot, Dr. Michael Snyder, Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, and Dr. Rhonda Patrick discuss the benefits of dietary fiber.
