Fibre has many health benefits including slowing the body’s absorption of carbohydrates and sugar (helps maintain blodd sugar levels, and provides a feeling of fullness over a longer period of time which can also assist with weight loss goals), assisting cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of stroke and improve digestive health. Soluble fibres found in beans, oats, flaxseed oil and bran may also help lower bad cholesterol levels. Fibre is also a particularly good supplement for people with diabetes, digestive problems or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
