What Is Fiber?
Fiber is a part of fruits and vegetables that our digestive system cannot break down. Instead of breaking down and being absorbed by the body, fiber passes through our intestinal tract to clean it out.
Fiber is mainly found in plant-based sources such as grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables. There are two types of fiber; soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Both types of fiber are considered carbohydrates, but they are not caloric. We need both types. The difference between the two is that soluble fiber can absorb fluid and swell. This is why some foods with lots of fiber make you feel full faster.
Most American Eat
Too Little Fiber
It is estimated that 95% of American adults and children–that’s fewer than one in ten–don’t get enough dietary fiber. According to The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value of fiber should be 28 grams per day, but most Americans only get 16.4 grams or fewer of fiber daily.
How Much Fiber
Should I Have Each Day?
The USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends the following amounts of dietary fiber per day:
- Women Under 50 – 25 to 28 grams of fiber
- Men Under 50 – 31 to 34 grams of fiber
- Women 51 and Older – 22 grams of fiber
- Men 51 and Older – 28 grams of fiber
- Children – 14 to 31 grams of fiber
Why is Fiber Important?
We all know the usual bathroom reasons, but there’s more to fiber’s health than that! Scientific researchers have found that when you consume the recommended amounts of dietary fiber, you lessen the chances of chronic inflammation.
Inflammation is our body’s immune system response to toxins, diseases, or injuries. Diets that are high in fat or refined carbohydrates or made up of mainly processed foods can lower our body’s immune response.
Some signs of not getting enough dietary fiber include:
- Mood swings
- Feeling tired or sluggish
- Inability to focus
- Frequent headaches
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Development of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, or eczema
- Hair loss
- Dry mouth
Too little fiber over time can create chronic inflammation in the body and gut biome imbalances, which has been linked to many of today’s modern health woes. Some benefits of getting enough dietary fiber include:
Sources of Fiber
Health experts have found that consuming a healthy diet is the best way to get enough dietary fiber. These include beans, lentils, peas, berries, pears and apples with the skin, brown rice, almonds, oats, cracked wheat, Brussels sprouts, carrots, chia seeds, bran flakes, and whole wheat pasta.
You can also take fiber supplements to increase your intake. Psyllium husks are the principal ingredient of over-the-counter fiber remedies like Metamucil, but they’re difficult to take. There is a better solution, though!
