Wellness Tip
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber strongly attracts water during digestion. It appears to help lower blood cholesterol. Oat, beans and other legumes, Flax, prunes, apples and pears are rich in soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber mixes less easily with water. It is found in many fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, and whole grain products. Insoluble fiber helps keep the bowels regular and may help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol.
