In recent years, a substance called “dietary fiber” is entering the eyes of scientists. This is a special type of carbohydrate.

Besides, it is called the "seventh nutrient" of human beings.
The Current Situation of Diet and Life of Human
With the improvement of people's living standards, the requirements for food are getting more and more fine. In the foods, the amount of crude fiber which are consumed by people is less and less. In this condition, such as constipation, obesity, arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, etc., seriously threaten the health of people. It is imperative to supplement dietary fiber in people's food.
Ingestion of appropriate dietary fiber can help gastrointestinal motility and promote digestion and absorption of food. Dietary fiber also has strong water absorption. When the body consumes excess nutrients, it can bring excess nutrients out of the body, which is conducive to the excretion of feces. Dietary fiber can bring many harmful and toxic factors out of the body.
Regular supplementation of dietary fiber not only can maintain good health, but also effectively prevent various diseases such as coronary heart disease and diabetes.
