Fibre was the under appreciated “nutrient”. But based on recent studies because of its importance in health fibre is considered as 4th macro-nutrient. There are two types of fibre, such as soluble and insoluble, they both impart a variety of health benefits.
The main difference between soluble and insoluble fibre is that the former has the ability to dissolve in water, while the latter does not.This results in both types of fibres being important for regular bowel movements. Soluble fibre forms a gel-like substance in the presence of water which helps to move the contents of the bowels. Insoluble fibre will not absorb water, thereby “bulking” up your stool and making it easier to pass. The regular transit of intestinal contents is critical for the detoxification capacity of the body, and both types of fibre are essential for this function. Additionally, soluble fibre has the ability to directly bind toxins and inhibit them from being absorbed into the body.
The RDA of fiber intake is 35-40 grams per day for adults, or 20 grams for every 1,000 calories in the diet. This amount should come from a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber. Generally 3:1 ratio of insoluble to soluble fiber is advised. Now a days due to the lifestyle revolution that ideal ratio of fibre and energy has not been meet, thus in turn results in many chronic diseases like saviour chronic constipation or in saviour cases communicable diseases like cardio vascular diseases, diabetes and even colorectal cancer.
