Benefits of Fibre
Studies have shown that our diet should contain more vegetables, grains and fruit, and Health Professionals are regularly recommending that individuals consume diets that are high in fibre, especially soluble fibre.
There are two types of fibre which perform important functions within the body, and bring benefits to the digestive and intestinal systems. High fibre diets have also been shown to reduce the risk of certain health conditions.
Fibre is a vital part of a healthy diet, but it’s not always easy to obtain enough daily fibre. Experts recommend a minimum of 20-35 grams of dietary fibre each day, but many people get less than half of the recommended amount of fibre in their daily diet. Fibre’s most well-known benefit is the regularity that it promotes, which means toxins are less likely to be reabsorbed into the blood stream. Soluble fibre soaks up water, which helps to bulk out faeces, allowing it to pass through the body more easily. Insoluble fibre sweeps the intestines clean of waste material, soluble fibre binds with fatty acids and prolongs stomach-emptying time.
