The Benefits of a High fibre Diet:

vegan

According to a new review by the World Health Organisation (WHO) eating more dietary fibre and whole grains may protect against diseases such as heart disease, stroke type 2 diabetes and colon cancer. This is in addition to promoting weight loss and preventing constipation!

Popular nutrition guidelines encourage an increased intake of vegetables, fruits and whole grains in a Diet.  There are however fewer guidelines regarding the sources and intake of dietary fibre.  Eating at least 25 g (women) to 38 g (men) of dietary fibre a day can show significant health benefits. Childhood nutrition, including education regarding healthy habits like eating fibre,  is also vital in preventing lifestyle diseases for our future generations.
