Many people are advised that dietary fiber is good for them, but not many know what it is, or how much fiber they should be consuming for optimal health. As a result, most Americans don’t get enough fiber in their diets. Fiber intake is essential for healthy bowel function and studies have found that getting your recommended daily allowance reduces the risks of health issues such as cancers, coronary heart disease, diverticulitis, and obesity.

The first researcher to connect a high fiber diet with better health was Dr. Denis Burkitt. While studying rural populations of people in Africa, he noticed that those eating the local produce associated with a regular diet in the region resulted in extremely low incidences of diabetes, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other chronic diseases in comparison to western populations. His research concluded that the high amount of fiber being consumed as a regular part of the rural African diet was one of the contributing factors necessary for maintaining good health. The average American only consumes about 14 grams of fiber per day, far less than they should be consuming as part of their regular diet.

Even though we know that fiber is an incredibly important part of maintaining a healthy life and avoiding disease, it is still a nutrient that many of us don’t recognize as important. If you’re looking for a great way to improve your health, are suffering from a Gastrointestinal disease, or are simply interested in learning more about dietary fiber — I’ve provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about dietary fiber below.

Stethoscope and Apple- 650 blog

Weight management. Cardiovascular health. Cancer prevention. Digestive health. Diabetes management. What is one nutrient that contributes to these health benefits, and more?  It’s fiber.  With all of the beneficial health effects of fiber, it’s hard to imagine how Americans consistently fall short of the recommended 25 grams of fiber per day. Yet, Americans’ busy lifestyles and frequent consumption of overly processed foods put us at an average of just 16 grams per day. If you are thinking about making a change in your dietary habits, you might consider ways to increase your fiber intake - the benefits speak for themselves.
