Fiber Intake

According to the American Heart Association, the average American takes in 15 grams of fiber daily. The recommended daily intake for fiber is 35 grams a day.

Fiber basically helps keep food moving through the intestine. Fiber also helps with satiety (sense of being full) and can prevent over-eating.

Fiber is essential in a good healthy well balanced diet. It can aid in lower blood pressure, relieving bloating, and helps with weight loss.

Always aim for at least 35g a day and make sure to accompany your fiber intake with plenty of water.
