Fiber Can Save Your Life

By and Tuesday, 16 June 2020 12:11 PM Current | Bio | Archive

When it comes to textile fibers, cotton is king. In the United States, 17 million bales (each weighing 480 pounds) of cotton are produced annually, with Texas, Georgia, and Mississippi growing the most.

When it comes to fiber foods, all beans (pinto, black, lima, kidney, etc.), raspberries, avocados, oats, apples, carrots, nuts, collard, turnip, and beet greens, cauliflower, green beans, potatoes, and 100% whole grains are the kings of your plate.

Almost all edible plants contain soluble and insoluble fiber. You want a daily mix of both.

Soluble fiber is digested in the colon. It helps feed your gut biome, regulates glucose and cholesterol levels, and helps keep your heart healthy.

Insoluble fiber passes through your guts unchanged, and helps prevent constipation.

But that's not all fiber can do for you. A meta-study from New Zealand, published in PLOS Medicine, reveals just how powerful the benefits of dietary fiber are, especially if you have prediabetes or diabetes.

Researchers looked at a very large pool of studies and found that increasing your intake of dietary fiber by 15 grams a day and/or getting 35 grams total daily significantly reduces your risk of dying prematurely from diabetes and its associated complications, such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke.

You can increase your fiber intake by around 15 grams daily if you enjoy a half of a cup of chickpeas or a cup of raspberries (8 grams) and one cup of whole-wheat pasta (6 grams).
