The recommended daily intake of fiber is about 30 grams, (or more) each day. Fiber helps clear body of toxins by moving bulk through the intestines, helps control cholesterol levels, and shuttles excess fat from system. It also helps regulate blood sugar by slowing down digestion, plus it helps make you feel full so you don't overeat. Sources include fresh vegetables and fruits (especially when the skin is left on), whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. While most of these foods are carbohydrate-based, their fiber content makes them slow-digesting carbs. Their slow absorption rate creates a sort of timed-release effect that helps control body’s insulin response. Benefits of a high-fiber diet.
What Are Free Radicals?
Free radicals create a destructive process in our cells, causing the molecules within the cells to become unstable. They may even be a big player in the formation of cancerous cells by a “chain-reaction” effect, causing other cells to become damaged. Because of the inherent instability of free-radicals, they try to attack other healthy cells to get stable themselves. This causes the once-healthy cells to react in the same way, attacking others in a never-ending attempt for cellular stability.
