Amazing Effects Of Fiber To Your Body

One of the essential supplement our body needs is fiber.
The reality is that fiber has medicinal effects to potentially help reduce and prevent common diseases.

In this article, let’s take a look at exactly what fiber is and its amazing effects on the body.

Fiber is simply a type of carbohydrate found naturally in plant-based food that is not digestible in humans.
Example of fiber-rich food are vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, and nuts and seeds.

Types of Fiber

Soluble fiber
This is a type of fiber that attracts water and forms a gel. Examples of foods high in soluble fiber include oats, legumes, edible plant skin, and nuts.

Insoluble Fiber
Insoluble fiber is the type of fiber that repels water. Examples are foods such as veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds, wheat bran, and whole-grain foods like whole-wheat pasta and brown rice.

Here are some reasons why you should Eat More Fiber:

Health Benefit

Fiber Intake helps to prevent, obesity, reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and even diabetes.

Weight Loss

Normal-weight and overweight people have been found to have a higher intake of dietary fiber than obese individuals.


One benefit of getting enough fiber in your diet is reducing the risk of diverticulitis, a condition in which pouches form in the colon become infected. Fiber helps keep food clear from the pouches and moving through the digestive tract.

Cholesterol/ Blood Pressure Reduction

Fiber’s effect on the body is a great example of medical nutrition therapy (MNT), a technique registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) use on their patients to reduce the need for medication while improving health outcomes.
Fiber has a preventative role in blood pressure, but the reason is more associated with nutrients such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium contained in food that is high in fiber.
