American Heart Association Eating Plan suggests eating a variety of food fiber sources. Total dietary fiber intake should be 25 to 30 grams a day from food, not supplements.
Currently, dietary fiber intakes among adults in the United States average about 15 grams a day. That's about half the recommended amount. Make sure nutrition plan is filled with a healthy amount of fiber per day.
Remember, FIBER is the part of plant-based foods (grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans) that our body can't break down.
Fiber passes through our bodies undigested, keeping the digestive system clean and healthy, easing bowel movements, and flushing cholesterol and harmful carcinogens out of the body.
