3 Reasons You Need More Fiber
Both soluble and insoluble fiber are a must for a healthy diet, for three main reasons:
- They reduce the amount of time the food stays in the gastrointestinal tract, by stimulating a healthy bowel movement. This reduces the risk of bowel-related issues, like constipation, hemorrhoids, and inflammatory bowel disease.
- They help your body detox naturally, because the gel-like mush created by soluble fibers absorbs the excess cholesterol, estrogen and toxins. Preventing them to leak back into the blood stream.
- They prevent you from gaining weight, by keeping you full without adding tons of calories to your meals.
Oats, chia seeds, beans, apples and blueberries are among the richest foods in soluble fiber, while brown rice and fruit skin are a great source of insoluble fiber, so make sure you always eat your fruits without peeling them!
