So, what is a plant fiber?

A plant fiber is a type of carbohydrate that comes from the cell walls of plants. It is an essential component of a healthy diet as it aids in digestion and promotes regularity. Unlike other carbohydrates, plant fibers are not digestible by the human body, which means they pass through the digestive system largely intact. This property gives them a range of benefits, including reducing cholesterol levels, controlling blood sugar levels, and promoting weight loss. Plant fibers can be found in a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Incorporating these foods into your diet can offer numerous health benefits.
