One of the most beneficial natural foods – and supplements – is fiber. You’ve heard countless times how great fiber is for the body. And in as little as a month of taking good-quality fiber you can feel little differences – improved bowel function, good energy, and even a sense of earlier satiety, so you may still enjoy your meals but eat less.
Fiber is naturally occurring in numerous fruits and vegetables primarily concentrated in but not limited to stalks and skins. Fiber is also abundant in whole grains – distinguished because fiber is retained in the husks, where it is concentrated. (Remember, stripped or processed “white” foods are husk-less and therefore “fiberically bankrupt.”)
Fiber, such as psyllium and glucomannan, absorbs a large amount of water in the GI tract, swelling and becoming bulky. As it passes through the GI system, it makes solid wastes softer and easier to eliminate. As such, fiber helps dramatically to keep the solid-waste system working regularly.
A third great related benefit? Regular bowel movements prevent stagnant stool from accumulating.
For those who are overweight, adding fiber to the daily diet can also assist in getting into shape for the long term. As fiber is a bulking agent, it makes you feel full. Enjoying a fiber supplement with a glass of water one hour before your meal will not only give you the ability to reach the suggested daily intake of 31 grams of fiber, it helps you concentrate on eating other nutrient-dense foods to fill up quicker.
Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fiber promotes regularity by encouraging peristalsis (rhythmic movement of the large intestine to eliminate waste). Soluble fiber (also known as viscous fiber) dissolves in water and morphs into a gel in the gut, which slows movement of food.
How Fiber Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Soluble fiber is believed to beneficially impact cholesterol by reducing the amount of bile that is reabsorbed in the intestines, and allows it instead to be excreted. Simplified, the liver will make more bile to make up for the loss and in so doing, will pull cholesterol from the bloodstream in order to produce the bile, and it will also increase its LDL receptors to obtain more of the circulating cholesterol it needs to make more bile. Ingesting more soluble fiber as regularly as possible can help keep your cholesterol levels in normal ranges.
How Much Do You Need
According to the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the average individual is recommended an intake of about 31 grams of total dietary fiber each day. The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) suggests that people adhering to the therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) program get at least 5 to 10 g of soluble fiber a day.
One more benefit of fiber that was shown in a 2010 study is for teen girls: dietary intake of fiber – and nuts – during adolescence was shown to protect breast health later in life.
