High fiber vegetables assortment

Although a regimen of regular exercise and eight hours of sleep each night assist in achieving a healthier lifestyle, a well-balanced diet  that includes high fiber vegetables will maintain a properly functioning digestive system. High fiber vegetables, both soluble and insoluble, perform distinctive functions for fine-tuning several regions of the body’s digestive system.

What are high fiber foods?

There are two major types of fiber recognized by most scientists: soluble and insoluble. The digestive system turns soluble high fiber vegetables into a soft gel-like form as they travel through the digestive tract. This soluble fiber assists in lowering harmful system levels i.e. cholesterol and glucose. Although high-fiber is a complex carbohydrate, the digestive system does not break down the substance, therefore avoiding the increase of glucose levels while at the same time allowing the body to adjust positively to natural insulin levels. A diet rich in high-fiber vegetables naturally regulates glucose levels. Additionally, as the fibrous substance passes through regions of the digestive tract, cholesterol levels optimally adjust as well. This process helps protect against harmful conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and complications resulting from diabetes.

Another form of high-fiber food is insoluble fiber, which does not break down or become absorbed during the digestion process, rather remaining in bulk form. This form of high fiber roughage greatly benefits the body’s digestion system while conditioning the bowels, colon, stomach and small intestine. The high fiber vegetables within the insoluble group travel through these regions of the body, cleansing each area as they pass. Found within the stomach are good bacteria and bad bacteria. The ‘good bacteria’ is essential for fighting sickness while ‘bad bacteria’ can increase fat and sugar levels. Insoluble fiber or indigestible roughage removes harmful toxins and bacteria while leaving behind the beneficial amounts of bacteria the body needs for proper regulation. Moreover, high fiber foods assist in regulating bowel movement and help towards correcting irregular bowel conditions such as constipation or diarrhea.

Benefits of eating high fiber vegetables

Vegetables rich in high fiber provide an excellent resource for fighting and relieving inflammatory conditions within muscles, tendons and joints as well. Top high fiber foods include increased levels of antioxidants, the very substance that alleviates inflammation. The antioxidants within the fiber attack and remove inflammatory compounds while also improving painful conditions caused by inflammation.

Further benefits of a high fiber diet help to regulate optimal weight levels. Both insoluble and soluble fiber takes longer to pass through the stomach, which allows the individual to feel full sooner, with fullness lasting longer than a diet high in fat and sugar. Diets consisting of foods high in sugar and fat provide a short and false feeling of fullness, increasing the need for ingesting more. Consuming vegetables high in fiber assist in controlling weight gain by reducing over-eating during an average meal.

As with any substance, moderation is the key toward achieving and maintaining a healthy body. The average adult should only consume between 30-35 grams of high fiber vegetables daily. It is also important to consult your physician for ensuring the appropriate fiber intake necessary within your personal dietary plan. Each individual’s dietary requirement varies and a licensed physician can provide the proper guidance. A trained professional’s supervision is important for overseeing and avoiding harmful interactions i.e. allergic and medicinal complications.

    High-fiber foods helps control blood sugar levels also it generally require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you’re no longer hungry, so you’re less likely to overeat. Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger and linger longer, so you stay full for a greater amount of time. And high-fiber diets also tend to be less “energy dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food.
    Nice Post…..

    When I look at a list of high fiber foods I realize I am not consuming much, if any of them and know that the long term results will be grim. For some reason as a kid I ate and enjoyed many of them but now simply fail to eat what is rather good for me.

    not only the vegetables but also the fruit containing fiber help in building a good level of immunity. I also would like to say that you should prefer the intake of raw fruits as such instead of taking their juices.

    One cup of cooked navy beans has 19+grams, so if you’re looking for high-fiber, that’s the most I’ve seen in anything natural so far. Also, you can mash them up to increase their flexibility in your recipes.

    Thanks Adrian, many people don’t realize how important fiber is in supporting healthy because fiber is removed from the processed foods we eat, so the producers don’t talk about how much fiber is needed. We can support our health by eating whole foods like vegetables, fruits, nut, seeds, and legumes. They are made to work well with the body and keep us healthy.

    One of the side affects of not eating High fiber food including vegetables is the feeling of becoming hungry often. Eating more often and especially at odd hours (before bed) isn’t healthy for anyone. And as others mentioned, its is good for digestion and also help control weight levels if taken in the correct quantity.
