It’s AumSum Time. Why is Fiber Important for us? Coz I said so. Naahhh. Fiber or roughage is an essential plant-based
nutrient. When consumed in adequate amounts, fiber provides
us the following benefits. Firstly, fiber is good for our large intestine. Why? When fiber reaches our large intestine. It is broken down by millions of bacteria,
producing short-chain fatty acids. These acids are a source of energy for the
cells of our large intestine. Secondly, certain fibers help us avoid heart
related diseases. By keeping our blood glucose levels in check. In our stomach, these fibers dissolve in water. And form a gel-like substance which holds
the food together. This slows down digestion and delays the rate
of glucose absorption into our blood. Thus preventing unnecessary spikes in the
blood glucose. Thirdly, high fiber foods are more filling. Hence, we end up consuming less calories,
which is beneficial for weight loss. Lastly, some fibers also help in bowel movements,
relieving constipation.

  1. Hi my name is Lizzie
    I have been a fan of your videos for the last 2 years and they have really helped me both at high school in year 12 and university. You actually inspired me to create my own channel and try and help educate people with fun videos like you guys.

    I have been trying to grow and am having heaps of trouble. I was wondering if you have any tips or if you could do me a massive favour and share one of my videos or give me a shout out.

    If not I love your videos and will keep following them. Thankyou ❀️
