According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, dietary fiber may potentially be associated with reduced risk of death from cardiovascular, respiratory and infectious diseases.
Fiber has been known to aid in bowel movement, blood cholesterol and glucose levels. It also may help the body excrete potential cancer-causing agents by binding to them.
Researchers from the National Cancer Institute analyzed data from hundreds of thousands of men and women, linking causes of death based on records kept in national registries. Over an average of nine years of follow-up, fiber intake showed a significant reduction in risk of death in both men and women, in some cases by nearly 60 percent.
Those looking to increase their daily fiber should look to dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
