Nutrition: Fiber

In this video, we delve into the topic of fiber, discussing what it is and its importance for our health. Fiber, also known as roughage or dietary fiber, is the portion of plant-derived food that cannot be completely broken down by human digestive enzymes. We explain the different types of fibers including soluble, insoluble, bulking, viscous, and fermentable fibers, and the foods that contain these fibers.

We also explain the various health benefits associated with fiber consumption, including lower risk of heart disease, improved digestion, boosted immunity, and lower cholesterol levels. Additionally, fiber has been shown to help with weight management, control blood sugar levels, reduce the risk of colon cancer, and even improve mental health by reducing the risk of depression, anxiety, and stress.

We provide recommendations on how to increase your fiber intake by adding high-fiber foods such as beans, brown rice, berries, bran, baked potatoes with the skin on, pears, apples, bananas, broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots, artichokes, almonds, and oats to your diet.

This video is an essential guide for anyone looking to understand the role of fiber in their diet and how to include more fiber-rich foods in their meals.
