Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Acai Berry Contains Fiber


Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Acai Berry contains fiber.  Fiber is the roughage of plants like grains, vegetables and fruits that promotes wellness and is required for optimal gastrointestinal functioning. Fiber can be found in either soluble or insoluble forms with the former dissolving in water. The American Dietetic Association states that you should eat 20-35 grams of fiber per day to achieve optimum health results that is equivalent to one ounce of fiber per day. If you wish to add more fiber to your diet you should slowly increase your daily intake of it. If you increase your fiber too quickly you will feel bloating, diarrhea, and gas. While you're increasing your fiber intake you should drink a lot of water to avoid any of the symptoms noted in the previous sentence. Fiber acts as a big sponge in your colon, absorbing water and other liquids and moves the wastes out of your body and this is why it protects you from constipation or other intestinal problems.

Soluble fiber is found in pectin, gums, mucilages, beans, peas, barley, oats, apples, oranges, carrots and, of course, our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Acai Berry.(1), (2)  The seed husk of psyllium (an ingredient in a few bulk-produced laxatives) is also a good source of soluble fiber.(3)  Some people may be allergic to psyllium; our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Acai Berry is a better substitute. Studies have demonstrated that soluble fiber aids people with diabetes by lowering their blood sugar.(4)  Moreover, fiber also controls cholesterol levels.(5) Lignin, hemicellulose, and cellulose are examples of insoluble fiber.

Insoluble fiber will help prevent constipation by holding water and/or other liquids inside the colon.(6)  Fiber has also been demonstrated to assist in preventing colon cancer.(7)  A diet high in insoluble fiber may also prevent intestinal illnesses such as hemorrhoids and diverticulosis.(8)
