Why Do We Need Dietary Fibre?

Sunday 2 September 2012

Everybody knows it's good to eat more fibre. But do you know why? Dietary fibre serves many functions for our body. Amongst others, it helps:
  • Keep the pH level balanced inside our colon
  • Prevent toxin build-up in our body
  • Regulate our bowel activities
  • Enhance our nutrient absorption
  • Promote healthier bodyweight
  • Prevent chronic diseases

This diagram shows a comparison between a healthy and an unhealthy colon. As you can see, a healthy colon has a good shape, is evenly sized, with a nice healthy color, as compared to the colon of someone who has constipation, is overweight or is unwell.

An adult needs approximately 25g to 35g of dietary fibre a day. This translates to about 20 to 30 apples or 1 to 2 kg of greens. That is a lot of chewing. More than what many of us can manage. Which is why supplementing with a superior fibre product is an attractive option.

How to Choose a Quality Fibre Product?

Ideally, the dietary fibre should have 2 components:

1. Soluble Fibre
  • Slows down absorption of sugar so it doesn't cause a spike of sugar level in our blood stream, especially important for diabetic patients
  • Slows down digestion so it's very good as a weight management program
  • Lowers absorption of cholesterol and able to prevent heart diseases and high blood pressure
2. Insoluble Fibre
  • Promotes growth of friendly bacteria and prevent colon cancer
  • Adds bulk to our stool hence prevent constipation
  • Speeds up the passage of toxin and waste so that they are eliminated soonest instead of staying around in our system
