HOW MANY PEOPLE know about real benefits of fiber? Just a few. Most people ignore that scientists insist that we should consume one ounce and half [30 to 40 grams] EVERY DAY if at all possible. They insist because they know about all the benefits ! One of them is a proficient way to preventive health care. (!)

This article is intended to pass on to a reader known facts on another marvel created by the mastermind behind nature.

insoluble fiber - It is not digested. It does absorb water to become bulky. Then, it grows in size and advances through our intestines as if it were a rolling ball. Scientists construed that the ball of fiber moving forward well-promotes constant bowel movement which in turn scours intestines' inner walls preventing stool from sticking. Consequently, they all deduce that yet another benefit of Insoluble Fiber is to reduce Colon Cancer.

soluble fiber - The mastermind behind nature is truly wonderful. Assuming a reasonable quantity of this fiber is present in each of our meals, three splendid benefits of fiber are:

» Firstly, it forces sugars created during digestion to be released in the bloodstream slowly. The benefit is that our Pancreas will not work like a maniac producing Insulin to counter-act the unavoidable spike of sugar.

» Secondly, Soluble Fiber makes our stomach to empty slowly, and that makes us feel full longer. The beneficial result of it is that we do not feel like eating again until much later.

» Thirdly, as Soluble Fiber advances through our intestines together with food we just ate, it picks up excessive amounts of Fat as well as Cholesterol. In addition, substances known as Carcinogens ~which promote Cancer Cells growth~ also are removed from our intestines and those of our pets. (!)

let's fully comprehend that...

The amount of Cholesterol, Carcinogens, and fat carried away is proportional to how much fiber is present in each meal. Common sense dictates that adding Flaxseeds to our meals ~which are rich in fiber~ that amount of Cholesterol, Carcinogens, and fat carried away is substantially greater.

It is worth repeating that wonderful benefits of fiber apply as long as we consume healthful quantities of it from foods containing significant amounts of fiber. They are legumes, beans, lentils, brown rice, whole grain bread, Flax Seeds, Oat Bran, and some of the cereals. When developing the habit of consuming them regularly is when we rip the benefits of fiber.

pay attention to these two important habits !

» Wheat Bran is high-fiber food. Splendid way to take in good amount of fiber is with a cup of All-Bran served with Soy Milk or yoghurt ~and one fruit if you prefer~ during breakfast. A way to save a small fortune ~and lose more weight~ is to eat another cup of All-Bran during lunch. The days you do that, you should have a dinner meal loaded with nutrients.

» The good amount of fiber that Flax Seeds provide may be used during a heftier meal such as dinner. You may use your Coffee Grinder to grind the seeds and add them to sauces or stews at a rate of one or one and a half tablespoonful per person. Since qualities do remain effective for a short while after they are ground, do NOT buy Flaxseeds already ground.

in addition to benefits of fiber that you read above...

» It improves metabolism.

» It eliminates constipation.

» It encourages colon health.

» It plays a meaningful roll in controlling Diabetes Type 2.

» "It lowers high blood pressure and risks of heart disease" the American Heart Association insists on.

Scientists rightfully maintain that we may pay dire price for ignoring the benefits of fiber. It is why the mastermind behind nature provided us with fiber and its vital benefits.
