Fibre for Longevity and Asthma
A study just released has found humans that live a healthier, older age have an intake of around 37 grams or more fibre per day. This amount of fibre is enough to avoid disease to allow a healthy elderly life - great news. I've been reading in other studies that different balances of soluble and insoluble fibre may help people with different diseases - for instance, the more inulin fibre you have protects gut bacteria that helps your body against asthma.
Has anyone increased their inulin fibre intake and found this? Maybe time to look at what foods to introduce to different diets to provide the best fibre type for the individual.
