The 7 Best Fiber Foods for Optimal Digestion

Your days dealing with indigestion, stomach cramping and bloating are hopefully numbered.

With a proper nutrition plan and selection of foods, you can be on your way to a more comfortable lifestyle.

Fiber has always been recommended by health professionals and nutritionists for smoother digestion. We're going to explain why.

Why is Fiber so Important?

Fiber has many benefits and is an important catalyst for balance and regularity of your body's major functions. Getting an adequate amount of dietary fiber can help to:

. Promoting Digestive Regularity

.Maintaining a Healthy Weight

. Optimal Heart Functioning

. Regulating your blood sugar levels.

Soluble vs. Insoluble Fiber

The highest quality fiber for your digestive system is soluble fiber. When taken with water, soluble fiber builds up a gel-like coating in your stomach that helps to slow down the digestive process.

A more gradual absorption process into the bloodstream allows for more regular bowel movements and prevents dangerous glucose and insulin spikes.

Insoluble Fiber is important as well. It does not slow down your digestive process and passes through your digestive track in its original form. Insoluble Fiber creates bulk to help you properly digest and pass food.
