TWO TYPES OF FOOD FIBERS YOU NEED TO INCLUDE IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE NOW

Food or vegetable fibers are a type of carbohydrates that not digestible i.e. they don’t go through the digestive process or they are only partially broken down.

Fibers should be represented in everyday nutrition for a number of contributions they have to maintaining health and weight. A diet rich in fibers regulates the intestines (stimulates bowl movement), improves the control of glycaemia, lowers the concentration of cholesterol in blood, prolongs the feeling of fullness. Fibers also have an important role in the detoxication of the body.

There is a difference between soluble and insoluble fibers, but it is important to include both types as a part of a healthy diet:

Soluble fibers are partially dissolved in water and they are important in regulating the levels of sugar, as well as the reduction of triglycerides in blood.

Insoluble fibers are not dissolved in water, but because of that they help with obstipation and the functioning of the colon.

The intake of fiber foods with other carbohydrates slows down the absorption of sugar and regulates the response of insulin, and fibers create the feeling of fullness in the guts and stop us from overeating. Only fibers contain no calories, and they help move food through the digestive system.

The level of fibers in nutrition of adults should be between 20-30g. The best sources of fiber from food are wholegrain cereals, fruit and vegetables. Wellness wholegrain biscuits in a practical pack is rich with diet fibers, as well as Wellness cereals and Wellness meal. On each pack you can find a declaration with detailed fiber content.

Following the principles of a balanced diet, not only will you contribute to keeping your health, but you will also soon start to feel you have more energy for work, studying, sports and everyday activities.
