It's a compound found in plants (fruits, oats, veggies) and never in animal foods. It is important for lowering cholesterol and balancing your digestive system. There are two types; soluble and insoluble. Soluble means it dissolves in water which helps get rid of extra cholesterol in the liver as bile acids. Insoluble does not dissolve in water but does absorb water to create a fiber bulk which helps the gastrointestinal track clear out waste. What does that mean. By consuming insoluble fiber on a regular basis, the amount of time digested food sits in the intestine is decreased and helps the body from absorbing too much starch and sugar.

The average American takes in only 12 grams of fiber a day. 𝗔𝗶𝗺 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝟮𝟱-𝟯𝟬 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺𝘀 a day for a healthier You!
