Dietary FiberDietary fiber is the fibrous substance found in plants, the roughage of a plant that is neither nutritious nor digestible. It does, however, play an important role in digestion and waste elimination.
Dietary fiber moves through your stomach, small intestine and colon virtually unchanged, allowing it to absorb wastes and toxins and clean the digestive track.
Getting a diet high in fiber lowers your risk of digestive disorders, prevents constipation, controls blood sugar levels, lowers cholesterol and aids in weight loss.
To get a variety of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber in your diet eat beans, oat bran, whole grains, vegetables and fruits.
