Fiber = Healthy Digestive System and More!

19 Mar

Fiber is a great supplement, specially now that so many people are  consuming the SAD diet (Standard American Diet), a diet that lacks fiber and many other nutrients.

Fiber is great for stabilizing blood sugar, it helps lower cholesterol, it prevents colon cancer, hemorrhoids, constipation, alleviates irritable bowel syndrome symptoms and studies show it may even help people lose weight!

In addition to taking a supplement make sure you include foods to your diet, which are high in fiber:

  • Whole grains
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Brown rice
  • Seeds
  • Lentils
  • Beans
