High Fiber Diet

Dietary fiber is the part of a plant which is not digested by the stomach or small intestine.  Rather, it arrives unchanged in the colon.  There, it does two things:

  • It provides bulk or roughage and thereby helps promote regularity.
  • Far more important, many of these fibers are a food and nourishment source for the myriad numbers of bacteria that normally reside in the colon.
  • The adequate fiber dose is , 25-35 grams per day.
