Dietary fiber


Briefly about the benefits of fiber

Fiber can be soluble (pectin, gum) and insoluble (cellulose, lignin). Soluble fiber we get, using cereals (wheat, barley, oats), seafood, and vegetables, berries and fruit. This type of fiber lowers cholesterol levels, normalizes blood sugar levels and protects against cancer. Insoluble fiber present in legumes and cereals and in fruits and vegetables. Once in the stomach and absorbing moisture, it swells, fills the stomach and relieves feelings of hunger. Insoluble fiber cleans the intestines, frees the body of toxins and allows to lose weight without harm to the body. It is worth mentioning that any type of fiber is concentrated in the outer shell of grains and fruits, so food is recommended to eat the peel from the skin (if edible).
