High Fiber Foods

High Fiber Foods




High fiber foods are scientifically proven to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. They are naturally filling and high in antioxidants. Unfortunately, Americans eat only a fraction of the recommended daily fiber, and put themselves at risk. High fiber foods are whole foods like grains, fruits, and vegetables. A diet rich in fiber protects the body from many types of cancer. Toxins build up in your body producing free radicals which destroy healthy cells within the body. Fiber binds with the toxins and scrubs the body clean of harmful chemicals.
