FIBER is known as one of the Super Foods.
For the month of January our discussions will be surrounded by the,
“All To know About Fiber”.
FIBER is needed for optimal health and 40 grams is suggested. FIBER allows food to go through the digestive track at a quicker rate which allows for a couple of things to occur:
1) Weight loss benefit because your body does not have time to absorb all the calories. This is also important if you are a diabetic because it will smooth out your insulin spikes.
2) The flora in your digestive track will stay healthy. This will help if you have IBS or any digestive/stomach ache issues.
3) Your food will NOT sit in your body and allow for rotting to occur.
