Dietary fiber is the indigestible portion of plant based foods.

The best known food sources of dietary fiber include; whole grain breads and cereals, legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables.

Fiber is an essential nutrient, and provides many health benefits, especially when it comes to keeping your digestive system functioning smoothly and effectively.

No matter who you are, you need dietary fiber to be a regular part of your diet in order for your body, especially your digestive system, to function in a healthy manner.

RDA FOR FIBER

For most healthy adults, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of dietary fiber is going to be between 25 grams and 35 grams. Most Americans, and people in other countries who eat a Western style diet, do not normally get the amount of fiber they need for the most health benefit. On average, people tend to get about half of the recommended amount. In America, the usual daily intake of dietary fiber averages only about 15 grams per day.

FRUIT AND FIBER?

Many people automatically turn to fruit to get dietary fiber, probably because of the more pleasant taste of fruit, but, fruits are one of the poorer sources of fiber. This is because fruits do not have as much fiber as most people believe, and, people do not eat enough fruit anyway, even when they choose this source of fiber. Also, despite the very real health benefits of fruit, many people overlook the amount of sugar contained in many fruits.

WHY FIBER?

Occasional constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal problems in the United States. More than 4 million Americans suffer from constipation, and this problem accounts for approximately 2.5 million trips to the doctor's office annually...many of which could have been avoided.

The most common cause of constipation is simply not enough fiber in the diet.

WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?

The American Dietetic Association has said, "The public should consume adequate amounts of dietary fiber."

The American Heart Association has recommeded that Americans consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day.

Major life insurance companies (who want you to live a long and healthy life. as well as the US Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services recommend a diet rich in whole grains (good source of fiber), fresh vegetables (good source of fiber), beans (good source of fiber), and fruits.

TYPES OF FIBER

Three types of fiber help keep your digestive system running smoothly:

• Prebiotic, soluble fibers that fuel the growth of healthy microflora; Traditional dietary sources of prebiotics include beans, inulin sources (such as Jerusalem artichoke, jicama, and chicory root), raw oats, unrefined wheat, unrefined barley, and yacon.

• Insoluble fibers from whole grains and vegetables that promote regularity

• Resistant starch, a unique insoluble fiber that is slowly metabolized by bacteria in the large intestine, resulting in the production of shortchained fatty acids—including butyrate, a preferred energy source for colon cells that helps support long term colon health.
