Everyone needs fibre in their diets. The benefits of eating a high fibre diet makes it a necessary undertaking for all.
Taking enough fiber will make your body transform itself into a super fast highway to speed up and eliminate waste from your system. This is great because various carcinogens will attach themselves to the fiber and be speedily removed from your system.
The body doesn’t absorb fiber. In fact fiber is what is left over after we have squeezed the last nutrients out of our food. To stay in peak health we need to eat 25 to 35 grams of fiber a day. Most of us are lucky to get 14 grams.
By simply tweaking your diet, it is possible to get your 25 to 35 grams of fiber. By doing this you can greatly improve your health. Cholesterol levels will be lowered. You will lower your risk of getting certain cancers, and certain types of tumor growth will be slowed down.
There are two different types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Each type of fiber works differently to fight disease.
Insoluble fiber comes from the cells that make up the walls of different plants. The body can’t absorb insoluble fiber, and it doesn’t break down as it passes through the digestive system. This is what give your stool bulk and helps it to move faster through your intestines.
A good natural laxative is the insoluble fiber – bran. All vegetables, fruits and whole grains are also high in fiber. Beans, whether canned or dried are a great source of soluble fiber. Oat bran is another excellent source. You can eat this either added to your cereal, or in your bread. Make sure you always buy high fiber bread, as refined wheat looses its fiber, as well as trace minerals.
Save the water from canned beans for soups, as this water contains a lot of soluble fiber. Eat your fruit unpeeled, as the skin has lots of fiber. The white rind on oranges also provides a good dose of fiber. Fruits and vegetables should be eaten whole rather than in juice form.
When buying groceries, make sure to check the labels and fine print. Make sure that fiber is listed within the first four ingredients and note how many grams. Learn to balance the fiber content against other ingredients. Even if the product is high in fiber, it will be no good if it is also high in fats and sugars.
