What does fiber do?

Home  /  Food FAQ's  /  What does fiber do?
Dr John La Puma

There are two kinds of dietary fiber: soluble and insoluble.  Soluble fibers form a gel once digested; insoluble fibers just swell up with water and pass through.  Soluble fiber decreases the amount of fat your intestine absorbs, helps you feel full and lowers cholesterol levels.
