How can Dietary Fiber Help Me?
Dietary fiber is that “miracle” substance that is proven to foster weight loss, improve gastrointestinal health, protect your heart, and even guard against cancer.
Food manufacturers and diet gurus are boasting about it in their products, TV commercials exposing taut tummies urge you to get more by whirling it into juice or water, and a recent book suggests that 35 grams a day is the key to losing weight and staying healthy for life.
Although devoid of calories, this “non-nutritional vital nutrient”, is anything but lacking when it comes to your health. And new research shows yet another way that roughage (as Mom calls it) can help prevent inflammation – one of the major causes of chronic disease.
A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the relationship between fiber and C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is the best clinical marker for inflammation in your body. And it is a powerful predictor of future heart disease and diabetes. The study evaluated the body composition, CRP levels, diet and physical activity of 524 people and found that CRP levels were inversely associated with the total fiber in the diet.
The message is clear. Fiber up to keep inflammation down. For maximum benefits, you should eat a variety of plant-based foods that provide both soluble and insoluble fiber. Here are some of the wholesome, fiber-full ingredients you’ll find in Guilt Free Desserts:
