Soluble fiber also binds to bile acids in the small intestine, making them less likely to enter the body; this in turn lowers cholesterol levels in the blood therefore reducing the risk of heart disease!
2. Insoluble fiber speeds up the transit of foods through the digestive system and adds bulk to the stools; therefore, it is the type of fiber that helps treat constipation or diarrhea and prevents colon cancer.
3. Fiber prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulosis. (Page under construction). Because fiber binds and neutralizes many of bile acids and absorbs free water, it is beneficial to any form of Colitis, cleaning the bowels and defense them from bile acid.
