What are the Benefits of Dietary Fiber for Better Health and Wellness?

PowerPoint Presentation:

We keep on hearing dietitians, doctors, and health care providers telling us the importance of including more fiber in our diet but we don’t actually know why.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dietary fiber is commonly found in whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Aside from providing our body with the natural ability to prevent and relieve constipation, they are also essential in making sure that we achieve better health and wellness by fighting off diseases like diabetes and heart problems.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dietary fiber is the portion of plants that our body cannot digest and absorb and they are made up of the following components: What is dietary fiber? Soluble fibers Insoluble fibers

PowerPoint Presentation:

Soluble fibers slow down our digestion and they help in delaying the emptying of the stomach. They make you feel full and can aid in controlling weight. Because this procedure affects blood sugar levels, they reduce the risk of diabetes.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The following are rich in soluble fiber: Apples, oranges, straw- berries, nuts, beans, oatmeal, celery, carrots, cucumber, and dried peas.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Insoluble fibers are healthy fibers that add bulk to our diet and help prevent constipation. These fibers are not absorbed by the body and just pass through the gastrointestinal tract helping eliminate waste faster. Studies have shown that insoluble fibers are effective in fighting off colon cancer, constipation, and hemorrhoids.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Most vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, celery, onions, cucumbers are rich in insoluble fibers. Likewise, these dietary fibers are also present in whole grains, corn bran, nuts, barley, rice, and grapes.
