The Need for Dietary Fiber
It's no secret that dietary fiber helps foster regular bowel movements. If you've ever experienced any kind of colon issue, typically the first thing a doctor recommends is a fiber supplement. However, fiber has other health benefits other than bowel health. According to the Mayo Clinic, fiber can help you maintain a healthy weight, decreasing your risk of diabetes. Additionally, maintaining a healthy weight can reduce your risk of heart disease and some types of cancer. Plus, maintaining a diet high in fiber can potentially help lower cholesterol and control blood sugar levels. Overall, making sure your diet is rich in fiber will help you live a healthy life.
Types of Fiber
Fiber is a dietary filler that is not digested by the body, but rather, passes through the digestive tract. This helps aid the body in several ways (more on that below). Fiber comes in two distinct forms, soluble fiber, or fiber that dissolves in liquid, and insoluble fiber. Liquid supplements like FiberHeal or Citrucel powder supplement are high in soluble fiber which, according to Mayo Clinic, helps lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Insoluble fiber is a common building block in foods like bran, nuts, or vegetables. This type of fiber promotes movement of material the digestive tract and can prevent constipation.
Benefits of a High-Fiber Diet
According to Mayo Clinic, high-fiber diets help the body in multiple ways. Perhaps the most known of these is the normalization of bowel movements. Dietary fiber adds weight to stool and also keeps it soft. This allows for easier passing of stools. A lesser-known benefit of dietary fiber is the possibility of lowering the risk of developing hemorrhoids. Also, fiber fermenting in the colon is currently being studied for its potential role in preventing colon diseases. Soluble fiber may even help lower cholesterol levels by lowering low-density (bad) cholesterol. According to Mayo Clinic, studies have shown that high-fiber foods may help reduce blood pressure and inflammation. Additionally, fiber can slow the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream. This is particularly beneficial for those with diabetes by helping improve blood sugar levels. Also, high dietary fiber acts as a filler, helping control appetite. Foods with high-fiber content tend to be less energy-dense meaning they have fewer calories per volume. Lastly, Mayo Clinic claims that studies suggest increasing dietary fiber intake is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and all cancers.
