The health benefits of insoluble and soluble fibres have been well documented. There are some nutrients contained in fibre that may be extracted for the body to use, but the basic fibre structure passes though our digestive tract to clean our intestines and give more bulk to the stool. It actually helps the bowels to function more efficiently. More specifically, insoluble fibres absorb large amounts of water, stimulate the intestinal tract and provide gastrointestinal benefits. Soluble fibres are characteristically sticky and mesh with water to form gels. They modulate blood glucose by slowing its absorption into the bloodstream. In addition, they lower elevated blood cholesterol by binding bile salts which cause the body to break down more cholesterol to manufacture more bile salts. Furthermore, they chelate toxins (e.g. heavy metals) in the intestinal tract.
On this shelf we have products such as Solgar Oat Bran, Psyllium Seed Husks Powder and Pure Apple Pectin Powder. Fibres are the indigestible portion of plant foods that move food through the digestive system, absorbing water. Solgar offers a well rounded selection of individual soluble and insoluble plant fibres.
