There is plenty of fiber in, for example, various seeds and nuts, fruits and berries, and whole grains. In the Puhdas+ product range, you can conveniently find various fiber supplements that play an important role in, for example, special diets, such as a gluten-free or ketogenic diet. Fibers have many health-promoting effects and their sufficient intake helps to stay healthy and have good strength.
Dietary fibers - what are they?
Fibers have dozens of different functions in the body. Fibers are food for the gut's own microbes. Dietary fibers are compounds obtained from food, which the body's digestive tract cannot break down on its own. They pass through the entire digestive tract, finally ending up in the large intestine. Fibers can be divided into insoluble and soluble fibers. Insoluble fibers increase and soften the amount of intestinal content mass, while soluble, i.e. gelling, fiber slows down the breakdown of carbohydrates while keeping blood sugar levels more even.
