What is Fibre?

Fibre, also known as dietary fibre, is a type of carbohydrate that the body cannot digest. It is found in plant-based foods and plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. There are two types of fibre: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre dissolves in water to form a gel-like substance, while insoluble fibre does not dissolve and helps add bulk to the stool, promoting regular bowel movements.

Where is it Usually Found in Nature?

Fibre is naturally found in a variety of plant-based foods. Key sources include:

  • Fruits: Such as apples, berries, oranges, and pears.
  • Vegetables: Including carrots, broccoli, and leafy greens.
  • Whole Grains: Such as oats, barley, brown rice, and whole wheat.
  • Legumes: Including beans, lentils, and chickpeas.
  • Nuts and Seeds: Such as almonds, chia seeds, and flaxseeds.

Benefits to Health and Body

  1. Digestive Health: Fibre helps regulate bowel movements by adding bulk to the stool and promoting regularity, reducing the risk of constipation and other digestive issues.
  2. Weight Management: High-fibre foods are more filling, which can help control appetite and reduce overall calorie intake, supporting weight management and preventing overeating.
  3. Blood Sugar Control: Soluble fibre slows the absorption of sugar, helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  4. Heart Health: Fibre helps lower cholesterol levels by binding to cholesterol in the digestive system and preventing its absorption, reducing the risk of heart disease.
  5. Gut Health: Fibre promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, which play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy digestive system and supporting overall immune function.

Examples of Use

  • Dietary Supplements: Fibre supplements, such as psyllium husk, inulin, and methylcellulose, are available in powder, capsule, or chewable forms to help increase fibre intake.
  • Functional Foods: Many health foods, including cereals, snack bars, and meal replacement shakes, are fortified with fibre to enhance their nutritional value.
  • Baking and Cooking: Fibre-rich ingredients, like whole grain flour, bran, and chia seeds, can be incorporated into recipes to boost fibre content.

Suggested Daily Intake

The recommended daily intake of fibre varies by age and sex:

  • Men (19-50 years): 38 grams per day
  • Women (19-50 years): 25 grams per day
  • Men (51 years and older): 30 grams per day
  • Women (51 years and older): 21 grams per day

It is important to gradually increase fibre intake to avoid potential digestive discomfort and to drink plenty of water to help fibre move through the digestive system. Always consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
