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.
