Why We ALL Need More Fiber

Burlington Weight-Loss Shake Folks here in Burlington (or anywhere in the world) may only think about fiber when they are feeling constipated. Keeping you regular is one of the benefits of a high-fiber diet … but not the only one.

Fiber is important for HEART health.  People who eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to have high cholesterol levels.

Numerous studies have shown the link between fiber and LDL levels. Check out the Nutrition Journal for information on one of the studies.

An increase in fiber consumption can also help folks who want to lose weight.  Canadian / North American & European High-fiber meals have lower calorie-volume ratios; in other words, a high-fiber meal is more satisfying and you feel full longer. The Mayo Clinic says dietary fiber is essential for a healthy diet.

Canada and USA diabetics can benefit from a high-fiber diet according to the Mayo Clinic article; fiber can slow the absorption of sugar, which can improve blood sugar levels. Check out the links in the BLOG ROLL  (on right) and see what the American Heart Assoc. and European Heart Assoc. have to say.

The majority of people, whether here in Burlington, Toronto, New York, California … or any city, do not get enough fiber in their diets. Highly-processed white flour products, convenience foods and fast food meals have very little fiber. It takes time effort to locate and purchase good, quality fiber rich foods.

The American Dietetic Association reports that most of us don’t even come close to the recommended intake of 20 grams to 35 grams of fiber a day.

The Xocai X Protein Meal Shake and Xocai Activ Beverage are two delicious sources of fiber. The Xocai X Protein Meal Shake  has 8 grams of fiber per serving.  Activ provides 28 percent of the daily recommended value for dietary fiber.
