Benefits of high fibre foods

Foods containing plenty of fibre have more bulk than low-fibre foods.

Benefits of high fibre foods

  • Fibre can absorb large amounts of water in the bowels, and this makes stools softer and easier to pass. Anyone starting a higher-fibre diet will notice the difference in stool bulk. In almost all cases, increasing fibre in the diet will relieve constipation within hours or days.
  • Because stools are easier to pass, less straining is necessary, and this can help relieve haemorrhoids.
  • Foods containing plenty of fibre have more bulk than low-fibre foods. If taken in the right form at the right time and at sufficient quantities, fibre can sometimes slow the onset of hunger.
  • Evidence is now growing to support the notion that foods containing soluble fibre (such as oats, rye barley, and beans) can have a positive influence on cholesterol, triglycerides, and other particles in the blood that affect the development of heart disease.
  • Adding fibre to the diet helps regulate blood sugar levels, which is important in avoiding diabetes.
