Fiber helps keep our blood cholesterol level low and keeps our digestion functioning normally.
Some other potential benefits:
Some types of fiber are known as prebiotics, a substance which feeds the healthy bacteria that live in your intestines. Studies have shown that a high fibre diet reduces the risk of ulcers.
Both soluble and insoluble fibre are essential to a healthy digestive system. It is interesting, and of use to note that soluble fiber breaks down into a gel which slows down digestion while insoluble fibre doesn’t break down significantly and actually speeds up digestion.
One word of caution: A diet that includes 20-40 grams of fiber a day is essential for good health, but don’t go too crazy with your fiber intake. Too much fiber can lead to abdominal pain, gas and bloating, especially if you increase the amount you consume too rapidly.
