WHY DO WE NEED FIBER?
Fiber helps to regulate the transit time of the stool. You can determine your transit time by eating something that will show up visibly in the stool like kernels of corn or beets. Take note of the time between eating the food and when it appears in the stool. A normal transit time is approximately 24 hours. If it takes longer than this, your stool is not moving through the body fast enough.
There are two types of fiber, both insoluble and soluble. The following chart gives examples of each type of fiber.
Soluble fiber foods
- (Pectins, gums, mucilages, hemi-celluloses)
- Supports fermentation in GI tract
- Supports cholesterol absorption and excretion
Insoluble fiber foods
- (Cellulose and hemi-cellulose)
- Bulking agent and supports healthy digestion
- Sesame seeds
- Psyllium Wheat bran
- Apple/pears with peel
- Raw carrots
- Whole grain breads
