Grain fiberGrain Fiber

 

Fiberlicious Goodness

 

Grain fiber is a fiber superstar among plant foods. It adds water and volume to feces, promoting bowel movement. Made up of aucubine, enzymes, fats and mucilage, it reduces blood cholesterol levels, controls the rise of blood sugar levels and prevents heart disease and diabetes.

 

[Fills the Stomach]

Fiber aids weight control. In the stomach, it expands and forms a gel-like consistency when it absorbs the water we drink. Besides taking up more space, it delays the rate at which foods leave the stomach. This makes us feel full for a longer duration, thus helping to curb appetite. Try eating a fiber-rich fruit before a meal. you may be amazed by how it helps you to eat less later on !

 

[Aids Digestion]

Many people who are dieting often suffer from constipation due to inadequate fiber intake. But there is more to fiber than preventing constipation. Fiber is essential for maintaining  healthy digestive system. It maintains good bacteria in the intestines, and prevents hemorrhoids, diverticulitis (inflammation or infection of bulging pouches in the digestive tract) and colorectal cancer.

 

Low-fiber diets have been linked to colorectal cancer. In 2007, there were approximately 1.2 million new cases of colorectal cancer worldwide, with around 630,000 deaths. With a fiber-rich diet, colorectal cancer is highly preventable.

 

[Detoxifies to Reveal Beautiful Skin]

Fiber binds with bile acids in the intestine. In the liver, toxins are contained in bile acids to be excreted together with fiber. An adequate amount of fiber is needed for this process. A lack of fiber may hinder toxins from being flushed out quickly enough. When this happens, the liver may be overworked and cannot clear toxins from the body. Other eliminative organs, such as the skin, may try to remove these toxins. This causes the skin to erupt in acne, rashes, or eczema, resulting in a dull and unhealthy complexion. Puffy eyelids in the morning may also indicate a stressed liver. Hence, fiber is essential for beautiful, radiant skin.
