Supposedly it sits in your gut and lines it so food doesn't get caught in all those little folds and passes through more smoothly. Like a slide, I suppose... haha. So technically that's why some people say it's important and the fact that it's not digested is a good thing since it stays in your gut. I haven't noticed a big change one way or the other myself, so I can't say much about the effectiveness or damages.
Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!
