Fiber and Successful Aging
Fiber is an important constituent of the diet, one that we typically associate with digestive health. There are many other benefits of fiber as well, and a recent study in The Journal of Gerontology confirms this with the discover that “consumption of dietary fiber from breads/cereals and fruits independently influenced the likelihood of aging successfully over 10 years.” Specifically, they define successful aging as “the absence of disability, depressive symptoms, cognitive impairment, respiratory symptoms, and chronic diseases (eg, cancer and coronary artery disease).”
Now you have even more reason to eat a diet rich in fiber, and that means whole grains, and other non-processed plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, however, in our world of highly processed foods and convenience this does not always happen as often as it should.
If you’re looking for fiber supplements to help bridge the gap between what you need and actually consume, we offer several items, including this one, that can help.
