Daily Fiber is a Must
Experts recommend that most adults consume 25-35 grams of dietary fiber daily. Some experts say even more fiber up to 35-45 grams daily. Fiber is necessary to stimulate and move food through the intestine. Fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds are fiber-rich foods.

Fiber helps to lower your cholesterol because it takes the cholesterol and the fat as well from your food. Your intestinal health improves when you have the recommended amount of daily fiber because it helps to promote good digestion and helps prevent constipation.
