Fiber can be broken down into soluble (absorbs water) and insoluble fiber (does not absorb water). The former helps to add bulk and form a stool to ensure regular bowel movements and the latter helps to reduce cholesterol levels. Sadly, most people do not meet the adequate levels of fiber on a daily basis (38g per day for males and 25g per day for females – based on a 2000 calorie diet). Some ways of increasing your fiber intake are eating high fiber cereals, brown rice, beans, fruits and vegetables.
Important benefits of fiber include:
Protects against heart disease
Helps to maintain your weight
Reduces the chances of getting diabetes
Reduce risks of a variety of health conditions
With our busy lives, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of your fruit and vegetables intake. Sometimes we need help to reach our goals and this is where Fibertalk comes in. It contains psyllium husk (high source of fiber) and various vegetables, making it the perfect drink to consume to ensure your fiber intake is still on track.

Fiber is a non-digestible carbohydrate that aids in the regulation of blood sugar levels and the reduction of fat and calorie absorption.
Soluble fiber dissolves in water to lower blood glucose levels and cholesterol levels. Oatmeal, nuts, beans, lentils, apples and blueberries are all high in soluble fiber.
Insoluble fiber is a fiber that does not dissolve in water, can aid in the movement of food through your digestive system, improves regularity and prevents constipation. Wheat, whole wheat bread, whole grain couscous, brown rice, legumes, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes are all high in insoluble fiber.
According to the American Heart Association, the daily value for fiber is 25-35 grams per day on a 2,000-calorie diet for adults. However, the average American eats only about 16 grams of fiber per day. That’s less than the daily recommended intake for a lot of people.
Eating sufficient fiber can help to:
1. Increase digestive and bowel health, reduce the accumulation of toxins in the body, and make the skin more beautiful.
2. Reduces cholesterol and blood sugar levels
3. Supports weight loss
4. Fuels healthy gut bacteria
