Dietary Fiber – Why is it Important to Get Enough?
Everyone should know by now that fiber is an important part of a balanced diet. But what exactly are dietary fibers, why are they so important for our bodies, how and where do we find them, and most importantly, how much should we consume?
It is time to take a closer look at the subject and examine this nutritional classic with new knowledge.
“The Basis of our Being Is Nutrition.”
Johann Lafer, Austrian Star and Television Chef
Did you know…?
Nowadays, we consume an average of 15 grams of dietary fiber in our daily diet.
A more than alarming value! It should be at least 30 grams and for people in certain life situations such as diabetics even at least 50 grams!
What To Do? Our Tip!
Our basic advice is to eat a balanced, high-fiber diet with at least 30 grams of fiber per day. Plenty of fresh organic vegetables, organic fruit, and purified, high-quality water are the cornerstones of this diet. Since this is not possible for most of us, especially considering the quality of the food we eat, you can supplement your fiber intake with our high-quality ColoSTABIL® herb and seed blend. Stir a heaped tablespoon into water, juice or add to milk, yogurt and cereal every day. Not only will you be well saturated, but you will also have a valuable source of fiber.
