Soluble fiber helps to slow down digestion keeping you full for longer and reduces the release of sugar into the bloodstream. This helps with maintaining normal blood sugar levels, which is especially important for controlling hunger hormones, preventing chronic diseases, and having steady energy throughout the day. Soluble fiber can also help maintain normal cholesterol levels by binding to bile acids in the intestines and eliminates them through your stool. When the fiber binds to the bile acids in your digestive tract, your body needs to then make more, to help you digest your food, so the liver pulls cholesterol from the bloodstream to create more bile salts.

Fiber Facts

 by Heather DiBiasi, MS RDN

Fiber is the indigestible form of carbohydrates found in plant foods. When browsing the grocery store and choosing a carbohydrate source, it is best to look for a product higher in fiber due to the multitude of benefits it can provide. Fiber is incredibly important for our overall wellbeing yet the average adult in the United States only consumes about 15g of fiber per day, which is about half the recommendation.
 
 

Soluble fiber
Soluble fiber draws in water to your digestive track and turns into a gel-like substance. For this reason, make sure as you increase your fiber intake you also increase your water intake. An example of a food high in soluble fiber would be chia seeds. If you want to geek out an experiment with this add some chia seeds to a glass of water and watch them expand several times their original size and create a gel-like substance! Soluble fiber helps to slow down digestion keeping you full for longer and reduces the release of sugar into the bloodstream. This helps with maintaining normal blood sugar levels, which is especially important for controlling hunger hormones, preventing chronic diseases, and having steady energy throughout the day. Soluble fiber can also help maintain normal cholesterol levels by binding to bile acids in the intestines and eliminates them through your stool. When the fiber binds to the bile acids in your digestive tract, your body needs to then make more, to help you digest your food, so the liver pulls cholesterol from the bloodstream to create more bile salts. Pretty cool right!
 
Insoluble fiber
Insoluble fiber remains mostly intact after consumed and adds bulk to your stool to helps food move through your digestive tract. This type of fiber helps increase the rate at which toxic waste moves through your digestive system. It also promotes regular bowel movements, which is essential for detoxification of the body.
