 Health Benefits Of Eating Fiber?

Eat Your Fiber

Fiber is helpful to the body in many ways:

 

         Relieving constipation and hemorrhoids

         Preventing certain diseases

         Keeping weight under control.

A voiding and relieving constipation.

Fiber can absorb large amounts of water in the bowels, and this makes stools softer and easier to pass. Anyone starting a higher –fiber diet will notice the difference in stool bulk.

From almost all cases, increasing fiber in the diet will relieve constipation within hours or days. Because stools are easier to pass, less straining is necessary, and this can help relieve hemorrhoids.

Need to know

Constipation can have other causes, however, so you should consult your doctor if it is not relieved by increased  fiber.

Nice to know:

On average, it takes 39 hours in women and 31 hours in men for food

to pass through the colon and out of the body. This time varies a little from person to person. Depending on personality, state of mind, and fiber intake, usually, the effect of fiber is to speed up this process.

 

Preventing  Certain Diseased:

Getting enough fiber in the diet can lower the risk of developing certain conditions:

Heart disease. Evidence is now growing to support the motion that foods containing soluble fiver (such as oats. Rye barley, and beans) can have a positive influence on cholesterol. Triglycerides, and other particles in the blood that affect the development of heart disease Some fruits and vegetables (such as citrus fruits and carrots) have been shown to have the same effect..

Cancer  the passage of food through the body is speeded up when fiber is eaten. Some experts believe this may prevent harmful substances found in some foods from affecting the colon and may protect against colon cancer. (However, a recent study conducted by Harvard University concluded that eating high-fiber food did not appear to protect people from colon cancer.)

Diabetes. Adding fiber to the diet helps regulate blood sugar levels, which is important in avoiding diabetes. In addition, some people with diabetes can achieve a significant reduction in their blood sugar levels and may find they can reduce their medication.

Gallstones and kidney stones. Rapid digestion leads to a rapid release of glucose (sugar) into the bloodstream. To cope with this, the body has to release large amounts of insulin into the bloodstream, and this can make a person more likely to develop gallstones and kidney stones (in addition to diabetes and high cholesterol)

 

Keeping Weight Under control

Foods containing plenty of fiber have more bulk than low-fiber foods. If taken in the right form at the right time and at sufficient quantities, fiber can sometimes slow the onset of hunger.

To help control your weight with fiber: always try to take fiber in the natural form. For example. Instead of sprinkling bran over your food, chose foods naturally high in fiber. avoid foods that have been made easier to eat and digest by removal of fiber, especially sugars (including fruit juices.) choose foods that satisfy hunger without providing many calories, mainly Vegetables and most fruits, which are rich in fiber.

 

Need To Know:

Some individuals claim that fiber alone can cause weight loss without the need to diet. But in fact, the only effective and safe way to lose weight is to

         Reduce calorie intake to a safe level

         Get enough exercise to burn off excess calories.

However, fiber can be a useful aid in reducing calorie intake
