  • A high-fiber diet can assist you in losing weight
  • There are some soluble fibers that can reduce the time it takes for your body to digest it’s nutrients, which can make you feel full faster
  • Bacteria in the gut feeds off fiber and when fed, they launch chemicals that reduce inflammation in the body
  • Eating fiber-rich vegetables, grains, and fruits also helps release substances called phytonutrients that also reduce inflammation
  • Some types of fiber can slightly reduce cholesterol but not by much
  • Fiber helps decrease the amount of C-reactive protein (CRP) in your blood
  • CRP is an indicator of inflammation, which is connected to diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and heart disease
  • It helps counteract constipation because it adds mass to your stool
