I used to have small digestion issues when I went from vegan to paleo, so I started taking acidophilus. Recently, though, it stopped working. I'm having small constipation issues again. I eat 200g of fat every day, drink plenty of water, 30-35g fiber daily and drink aloe vera juice.
Is it possible that my probiotic has improved my gut flora and isn't powerful enough anymore? Or is there a more credible explanation?
What kind of fiber? I think the answer lies there. Some types of fiber promote healthy gut flora, some just irritate the gut. It varies for each person. Then there are non-fiber foods that do just as good a job of promoting healthy gut function, like resistant starches which you can get from plantains and some other starchy veg.
