Fiber Rich Foods Enhance Your Body Detox Program

Fiber rich foods are a good addition to your daily diet. They enhance your health more if you incorporate them in the tail end of your body detox program.

 Fiber Rich Foods Absorb More Water

Fiber is indigestible. Foods with fiber absorb more water and they increase the bulk of your stool.

When you eat food with a high fiber content, it passes through your bowel in about 30 hours.

But if you happen to eat more meat and less fiber, the transit time of the bowel contents takes about 3 days or longer.

Increase high fiber intake in your diet and less junk food.

The Consequence Of A Low Fiber Diet

  • Appendicitis
  • Colon cancer
  • Constipation
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Diverticulosis
  • Gallstones
  • Varicose veins

High Fiber Content Foods Reduce Your Risk Of Colon Cancer

If you happen to eat leafy green vegetables, nuts, whole grain bread, cereals and other high fiber foods, chances are, your risk of having colon cancer is low.

On the other hand, if you regularly have a low fiber diet, you are relatively at a higher risk of having the disease.

Plaque In Arteries

Foods that are rich in fiber offer a natural defense against arterial plaque. It is because foods with high fiber content help eliminate bad cholesterol from your body by way of the bile.

What Happens If You Have Low Fiber Intake

Certain gums and pectin found in fiber decrease the absorption of fat and lower your bad cholesterol levels.

However, if you have inadequate fiber intake, the bad cholesterol level in the bile builds up. Bad cholesterol tend to accumulate and form a fatty substance, known as plaque, around the inner walls of your arteries.

This condition increases your risk of having coronary heart disease.

In addition, the build up of bad cholesterol levels in the bile also leads to the formation of cholesterol gallstones.

So, I suggest you eat fiber rich foods regularly so you don't have to worry about constipation, colon cancer and heart disease. After all, a pound of prevention is always worth more than a ton of cure.

Oh, by the way, here's additional information regarding dietary fiber.
