Fibre

CARBOHYDRATES PROTEINS FATS FIBRE VITAMINS MINERALS SOURCES & REQUIREMENTS

Fibre is derived from plants and is found in fruit, green leafy  and root vegetables, whole meal flour and bread, bran rich food, brown rice, cereals including oats, beans and pulses. Fibre plays a vital role in the digestive process by softening the bile wastes and speeding up the process of elimination of undigested food thus helping to prevent  constipation. The presence of fibre regulates the absorption of fats  and glucose into the bloodstream.

Insufficient consumption of fibre  may lead to the development of Colon cancer and increase levels blood cholesterol. It is recommended that at least five portions (25gms fibre) of vegetables and fruit should be eaten each day to provide necessary vitamins, minerals and fibre. Increase your fibre intake gradually and as you increase your fibre intake make sure that you increase your fluid intake as well.
