The importance of "Soluble Fiber"
Okay people . . . we've been talking about how to lower "high" cholesterol for that past few day . . .
And today, we need to talk about a VERY IMPORTAMT part of doing that.
Now . . . there's "insoluble" fiber and just "soluble" fiber . . . and the body needs them both for optimal health.
Okay . . . so let's better understand . . .
"Insoluble" fiber attracts water into the stool . . . making it softer and easier to pass with less strain on the bowel. So you can clearly see just how important this fiber is to our health and a good poop!
Whereas . . . "soluble" fiber "reduces" blood cholesterol and sugar. It helps the body improve blood glucose control, which in turn . . . can aid in reducing the risk for getting diabetes.
Okay . . . so that's the difference between these 2 important elements to a healthy body.
But today . . . we're just going to talk about "soluble" fiber . . . and this is why . . .
Did you know . . . that eating just 5 - 10 grams of "soluble" fiber per day , . . can help "lower" total and LDL cholesterol by 5 - 11 points
You see . . . by doing this simple task of eating foods like Brussels sprouts, apples and pears . . . it can "reduce" the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream.
