NUTRITION - FIBER

 

Fiber [Fibre]

Fibre [or fiber] is the part of plants that our bodies cannot digest. Fruit, vegetables, grains and legumes all contain fiber. Fiber is helpful in maintaining adequate digestive function, and it also has been shown to play a role in decreasing risk of high blood pressure, some types of cancer and heart disease.

Studies have shown that eating higher amounts of fiber definitely decreases the risk of developing heart disease. Eating breakfast cereals with 5 grams of fiber per serving produced even lower rates of heart disease.

Our antiaging wellness program suggests 60 grams of fiber each day.

This can be done with any of the following:

  • Whole grain products.
  • 2 servings of low Glycemic Index (GI) fruit, with the skin (unpeeled apples or pears).
  • 6 servings of vegetables, with their skin. Cooking only slightly affects fiber content.
  • Legumes, such as kidney beans, garbanzo beans and lentils. Legumes contain more fiber than any other type of food and they are also rich in protein.
  • Breakfast cereal that contains at least 10 grams of fiber per serving.
    Daily Amount: 60 grams of fiber each day.
