If you don't eat enough fiber, your digestive tract has a difficult time digesting food which can lead to constipation. If this cycle continues over time, a person can form pockets in their colon due to stretching of the colon from being overworked . This is called Colitis and once you get it, it can not be reversed. Colitis can be very painful if the person who has it does not eat significant amounts of fiber on a daily basis.
Fiber is very good for our digestive system.
People who do not eat enough usually have a difficult time going to the bathroom and can develop problems with their colon. Such as Colitis, Diverticulitis, etc.
We need fibre because it:
Stimulates the digestive tract and helps it work efficiently;
encourages the presence of health-giving bacteria in the large intestine;
softens the stool (bowel motion) and helps prevent constipation;
slows down carbohydrate absorption, making meals more satisfying and therefore helping with weight management.
Different types of fibers have different effects on the body, and it’s important to get plenty of fiber from a variety of sources.
Water-soluble fibers are found in the highest concentration in apples, oranges, carrots, potatoes, oats, barley and beans. These types of fiber delay the time it takes for food to pass through the system, and so they provide a feeling of fullness. They also slow the absorption of glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream and so they help to keep blood-sugar levels more even throughout the day.
This type of fiber is also helpful in lowering blood cholesterol levels, which is why oats and oat
bran have been popular for heart health. Water-insoluble fibers are found in the highest
concentrations in vegetables, wheat bran, corn bran, rice bran and most other whole grains.
These fibers speed up the transfer of food through the intestines and also trap water, so they are particularly good in helping to prevent constipation.
The health benefits of a high-fiber diet are numerous. Most people are aware that fiber keeps the intestinal tract functioning smoothly. The fiber not only helps prevent constipation, but also reduces the risk of hemorrhoids. For those wanting to lose weight, a high-fiber diet is a great way to go. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains have fewer calories “per bite” than do foods that have a lot of fat and sugar. Also, the fibers keep food in the stomach longer and absorb water, so they provide the sensation of fullness.
It can make you very ill and constipated it can lead to a disease called ithurmistis, this is because of the lack of fibre in a diet. Fibre can be found in many foods and can be taken very easily, you can DIE if this cointiues for long periods of time!
