Why is a high fiber diet so good for us?
A diet high in fiber is important and has been linked to a long list of health
benefits. Studies* have shown that a healthy intake of dietary fiber significantly
lowers risk for developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension,
diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases. The recommended
normal daily fiber intake for adults is at least 30 g. However, research also
shows that the gap between the recommended and the actual intake of dietary
fiber is quite large in many countries – even if people regularly consume fruit
and vegetables. But why is this the case?
