    Fiber is important because it makes your intestines move faster. Fiber also slows the rate that sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, cleans your colon, acting like a scrub brush, and helps you have soft, regular bowel movements, reducing constipation.

    Fiber is essential in our daily diet. It helps in clearing out toxins in our body and helps us avoid constipation. I strongly believe that it is still better to get our daily fiber naturally through fruits and vegetables instead of processed food. Most processed food have chemicals and preservatives added which will also affect our body in the future.

    Adequate amount of fiber intake is essential for health. It avoid constipation and a good fiber diet reduce hemorrhoids and irritable bowel syndrome. Fiber lowers gastric acids and reduce the risk of ulcers. By lowering bad cholesterol, it reduces the possibilities of stroke and heart diseases. Some studies says eating a high fiber diet can prevent colorectal cancer. Cancers associated with stomach, mouth and pharynx. So fiber is an important component that should not be avoided from our meal.

    Fibrous foods have the best ability to sweep toxins from your body. I would like to mention two special fibrous seeds that have superb benefits: Psyllium husks and flaxseed. I buy psyllium as ground powder, mix a teaspoonful with a large glass of water for a detoxyfying drink. Fibre in linseed or flaxseed is also highly valued for its healing powers. I mix it with my breakfast cereals or put it in soups.

    Basically fiber helps keep your digestive system free of dangerous chemicals. If you are eating uncontaminated food sources then you really shouldn't be worrying about your fiber intake, fiberis only really of use if you're eating contaminated food There are no diseases caused by fiber deficiency, lack of fiber is not bad for you, it is just that fiber can help lower risk of cancer and other various diseases by helping keep your digestive system clean of contamination. Excessive fiber intake will lower testosteron, something to keep in mind.

    Fiber is important for intestinal health. I think it's emphasized as much as it is because the most common sources are fruits and vegetables, which have a lot of health benefits on top of the fiber.
    Generally, natural foods are better for you than processed ones, but the processed added fiber is also ok if you need a boost or don't have access to natural sources!

    According to experts, adequate fiber in the diet is very beneficial for your body's optimum function. It prevents constipation since it helps in maintaining the normal motility of gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Fiber adsorbs large quantities of water and also the toxic compounds produced by intestinal bacteria that lead to increased fecal mass and its easier expulsion. It lowers incidence of cancers of gastrointestinal tract (e.g. colon and rectum) in vegetarians compared to non-vegetarians is attributed to dietary fiber. It improves glucose tolerance by the body. This is mainly done by a diminished rate of glucose absorption from the intestine. It reduces plasma cholesterol level. Further, fiber binds with the bile salts and reduces their enterohepatic circulation. This causes increased degradation of cholesterol to bile salts and its disposal from the body. Dietary fiber significantly adds to the weight of the foodstuff ingested and gives a sensation of stomach fullness. Therefore, satiety is achieved without the consumption of excess calories.
    However, fiber has some adverse effect when ingested in huge quantities leading to several complications. Digestion and absorption of protein are adversely affected. The intestinal absorption of certain minerals (e.g. Ca, P, Mg) is decreased. Intestinal bacteria ferment some fibers, causing flatulence and often discomfort. The best sources of dietary fiber are fruits, leafy vegetables, vegetables, whole wheat legumes, rice bran etc. are rich sources of fiber. The ideal way to increase fiber intake is to reduce intake of refined carbohydrates, besides eating vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains. In general, vegetarians consume more fiber than non-vegetarians. An average daily intake of about 30 g fiber is recommended.

Researchers found that people who ate between 25-29 grams of fiber per day saw a 15-30 percent decrease in their risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and colon cancer. So, it really plays a big role in keeping our bodies good and feel good as well.

It can also assist in preventing some diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and bowel cancer. Fiber is common classified as soluble, which dissolves in water, or insoluble, which doesn't dissolve. The amount of soluble and insoluble varies in different plant foods. To receive the greatest health benefit, eat a wide variety of high-fiber foods. If you are not getting enough fiber each day, you may need to boost your intake.

    I would like to say some point about this.
    Eating more fiber delivers a slew of health benefits.
    • Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.
    • On average, American adults eat 10 to 15 grams of total fiber per day, while the USDA's recommended daily amount for adults up to age 50 is 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men. Women and men older than 50 should have 21 and 30 daily grams, respectively.
    • Foods that are generally allowed on a low-fiber diet include:
      • White bread without nuts and seeds.
      • White rice, plain white pasta, and crackers.
      • Refined hot cereals, such as Cream of Wheat, or cold cereals with less than 1 gram of fiber per serving.
      • Pancakes or waffles made from white refined flour.

    Dietary fiber is important to the health of the alimentary canal. You wish insoluble fiber to create the majority of your stool, and to supply you with a sense of satiation. Moreover, soluble fiber regulates the absorption of nutrients. Soluble fiber is soured in your gut by native gut flora. It's accountable for gas production, however additionally for permitting your gut flora to provide substances your body wants, and for reducing blood cholesterol, by binding to digestive fluid acids. Fibers additionally cut back appetite usually and typically and frequently modify us. To consume solely the maximum amount food as we'd like to survive (if weren't for convenience foods that trick us into intake over what we need). You get fiber from vegetables and grains, and most raw foods contain a lot of undigested fiber. So have a daily fiber as part of your daily lifestyle!
