Fibers are made up of soluble and insoluble components. Soluble fiber components dissolve in water to form a gel-like substance, while insoluble fiber remains intact and promotes healthy digestion. Fiber products that support the healthy and regular functioning of the digestive system should be consumed at approximately 25-30 grams per day by healthy individuals.
Among the benefits of fiber-rich foods are:
- Reducing cholesterol levels,
- Strengthening the immune system by improving the intestinal flora,
- Regulation of blood glucose level,
- Protection against heart disease
What are the benefits of fibrous foods for athletes?
Thanks to the satiating effect of fiber, athletes can easily control their weight by consuming fibrous foods. In addition, since fiber is slow to be absorbed, they provide energy release over a long period of time.
Examples of high-fiber foods include:
- Brussels Sprouts
- Chia Seed
- Dark chocolate
