Keeps the intestinal tract healthy.
In today's fast paced society one of the biggest health problems revolves around diseases of the digestive tract, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and cancer of the large intestine. People just dont eat enough foods that contain enough fiber; because of time constraints they force down mostly the processed ready to eat foods that usually don't contain any at all! There are many theories that describe why these digestive problems may be occurring, but if you look at the big picture, the lack of fiber in the diet may be where it all begins!
Fibers in general are usually divided into two major categories; the soluble and insoluble types. Fiber for the most part is non-digestible. It contains complex carbohydrates such as cellulous, hemicellulose, and lignin, which gives a plant its structure. The best-known and most often used sources of insoluble fiber are wheat bran, psyllium and apple pectin; although there are other sources available such as those found in some fruits and vegetables. Insoluble fiber's main job is to aid indigestion; it absorbs water, which increases bulk and helps move waste through the digestive tract, decreasing the time that potentially harmful substances would stay in the colon. It is a well known fact that it is always best to have a healthy balance of the two types in your daily diet so that the total fiber content of both keeps the intestinal tract healthy and functioning. Fiber in general has a number of potentially beneficial effects that include binding fat and assisting in helping us to feel full. Both of these may be effective in promoting weight loss and weight maintenance as well as for controlling mildly elevated cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Although both types of fiber do not provide us with nutrients or calories, they offer many benefits that include helping to prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, and diverticulitis.
