Abstract

Dietary fiber intake provides many health benefits. However, average fiber intakes for US children and adults are less than half of the recommended levels. Individuals with high intakes of dietary fiber appear to be at significantly lower risk for developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases. Increasing fiber intake lowers blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels. Increased intake of soluble fiber improves glycemia and insulin sensitivity in non-diabetic and diabetic individuals. Fiber supplementation in obese individuals significantly enhances weight loss. Increased fiber intake benefits a number of gastrointestinal disorders including the following: gastroesophageal reflux disease, duodenal ulcer, diverticulitis, constipation, and hemorrhoids. Prebiotic fibers appear to enhance immune function. Dietary fiber intake provides similar benefits for children as for adults. The recommended dietary fiber intakes for children and adults are 14 g/1000 kcal. More effective communication and consumer education is required to enhance fiber consumption from foods or supplements.

PROUCT US
STORKE

A strong correlation has been identified between increased fiber intake and reduced first stroke rate in a study of patients in the US, Northern Europe, Japan and Australia

HEART

An inverse association has been found between fiber intake and heart attack. Research shows that those eating a high-fiber diet have a 40% lower risk of heart disease; likely linked to this is the finding that increased fiber intake can lower blood cholesterol.

WEIGHT CONTROL
Fiber supplements have been shown to enhance weight loss among obese people. This is likely to be because certain types of fiber increases feelings of fullness.
BLOOD SUGAR CONTROL

Certain types of dietary fiber may help to slow the body’s breakdown of carbohydrates and the absorption of sugar, helping with blood sugar control. This also reduces the risk of developing gallstones and kidney stones.

Health benefits of dietary fibre

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME

A diet high in dietary fiber may provide some relief from the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

COLON CANCER

A number of epidemiological and experimental studies suggest that dietary fiber can play a role in colon cancer prevention.

DIVERTICULAR DISEASE

Lifetime dietary fiber intake reduces the risk of developing diverticulosis, a condition caused by strain on the bowel. A high-fiber diet lowers the risk of diverticulitis (a painful inflammation that can occur in a bowel with diverticulosis) by 40%.

HAEMORRHOIDS

A high-fiber diet helps in the treatment of constipation and as a result may lower the risk of haemorrhoids.
