Fibre is a type of indigestible carbohydrate. It is found in seeds, wholegrain cereals, beans, pulses, nuts, fruit and vegetables. Fibre gives bulk and softness to faeces, making it easier to pass. It is essential to drink plenty of water with fibre, as water allows it to swell and soften. The average adult is recommended to eat approximately 24g of dietary fibre per day.
Fibre is important for maintaining regular bowel movement and supporting bowel health. It helps to balance cholesterol levels, especially the ‘good’ HDL in relation to ‘bad’ LDL, thereby supporting a healthy heart and arteries. It may also help with blood sugar balance and weight management.
