Here is a handy chart below that shows some of the best foods high in dietary fiber. There are many magnificent health benefits available from eating fiber in foods. According to the Mayo Clinic website, dietary fiber can help control blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol levels, maintain bowel health, relieve constipation, help with a healthy weight, and prevent cardiovascular disease (CV disease).
Fiber is the bulk or roughage part of plant foods that the body can’t digest or absorb. When it is eaten in foods, it passes through the body relatively unchanged. This helps to detoxify the body, keeps it clean inside, and helps its organs function well. In addition, the vitamins and minerals present in these plant foods contribute to and support all these benefits.
