Fibre and fibre rich food

There are different types of fibre. All kinds of fibre make us feel fuller, they are not absorbed as energy and are good for your digestive system. As they are not absorbed as energy, they contribute to keeping blood sugar levels stable. It is therefore good to eat plenty of fibre, especially if you have diabetes. 

Fibres will make you feel better

Increase your fibre intake by looking for wholegrain products and products with a high fibre content, and eat more fruit and greens. If you are not used to this type of diet, it can be worth increasing your fibre intake a little at a time, to help your digestive system get used to this.

Remember to drink plenty of water because fibre absorbs a lot of liquid.
One positive health benefit of fibre is that you increase bowel activity which in turn, is good for your digestion.
