About Fibre Supplements

Fibre Supplements are important for maintaining digestive health and may assist in lowering cholesterol levels when cholesterol is being consumed through food  sources. Dietary fibre may also bind to dietary fats, therefore aiding in their removal from the body. This is actually a great way that fibre can support not only the health of our bowels, but also our blood lipid profiles and cardiovascular disease risk markers. Research reported in the British Medical Journal in 2013 indicated that greater fibre intake through diet was associated with reductions in risk for cardiovascular disease. 

 

 

Another interesting function of fibre is its ability to absorb water. Because of this effect fibre can bulk and soften stools for ease of evacuation, which can make it particularly helping for those suffering with constipation. This bulking effect also helps cleanse the bowels of waste build-up, which all too often can happen as a result of a poor diet or the improper digestion of food.


 

Fibre Supplements may assist with weight loss as they slow stomach emptying and transit time through the digestive tract, making you feel fuller for longer. This is particularly great if you often get hungrier than you should. Powdered fibre supplements can be mixed directly into protein shakes to make them more satisfying and filling, or alternatively may be used for cooking in foods such as muffins, cakes and pancakes. 


 

Fiber has a very low calorie content, you do not have to worry too much about adding a teaspoon to each protein shake or pancake mix. To be precise, each gram of dietary fibre has an approximate energy value of 1.9 calories according to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand. This equates to a 3 gram teaspoon at just under 6 calories. This is not too much to worry about, particularly given the benefits associated with a good fibre intake, not just on bowel health, but also by modulating blood lipids and supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria. After all, one of the most powerful prebiotics is soluble fibre.
