More Fiber for Better Health

Fiber is indigestible plant material. It is a crucial part of our diet. Because it cannot be digested, fiber helps promote regular bowel movements. It also can lower cholesterol and regulate glucose levels. Most adults eat only half of the recommended daily amount of fiber. In order to boost the fiber in your diet, eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more water to prevent cramping and gas. Another way to prevent cramping and gas is to add more fiber gradually, giving the body time to adjust. This article offers several high-fiber recipes and cites links to websites that provide more information on increasing fiber intake. Daily Local News, September 28, 2008
