Fibre is an essential part of our daily diet and it comes in two forms: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre produces a substance called mucilage which is soothing for the digestive system and helps to soften bowel motions, whereas insoluble fibre acts more as roughage which bulks up and ‘sweeps’ out the digestive tract, removing wastes from the body. Fibre helps to ensure regular bowel movements, which keeps cholesterol levels in check, maintains a healthy colon, and assists with detoxification processes.
Fibre is found in fruits, vegetables, and wholegrains. Slippery elm is a source of soluble fibre, and Psyllium husks and Linseeds are sources of both soluble and insoluble fibre. They are useful additions to your diet if you feel you need extra fibre to give your digestive system a boost.
