Fibre for health

Fibre is the only macro-nutrient that is indigestible by humans, yet it still has such an important role in health.  Fibre is an indigestible carbohydrate found in plants, which is essential for maintaining digestive health. It also helps to stabilise blood cholesterol, and blood glucose levels. The combination of these qualities means that moving from a low fibre to a high fibre diet can aid weight loss efforts immensely. With this, also comes lower LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and higher HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol). It is important to slowly introduce fibre if your current diet is low in fibre, as a quick increase can lead to digestive discomfort, it is also equally important to increase your water intake. Fibre rich foods include grains such as wholegrain bread and legumes, fruits and vegetables. The recommended intake is approximately 30g. Through an ideal and balanced diet this can easily be achieved.  

African Mango is a great way to increase natural fibre intake in your diet, with a bonus of assisting in weight loss and lowering LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol. It is a simple addition to your day that can make a huge difference to your health.
