In order to have a healthy and properly working digestive system, it is inevitably important to consume enough dietary fibers. Non-absorbing fibers form the so-called roughage that is there to fill the bowels up and help faeces to leave the body. Nutrients high in fibers are also crucial when it comes to vitamins and minerals.

A diet that lacks the necessary fibers can be responsible for a range variety of chronic diseases. Scientists concluded that in Africa where people consume tons of dietary fibers, the risk of developing colon cancer is much lower than in industrialized countries with fiber-free diets. Dietary fibers play an important role in the prevention of constipation, colon diverticulitis and obesity.
Dietary fibers derive from vegetables, in fact, every kind of nutritional roughage, non-digestive carbohydrates and other nutrients resistant to digestives are called fibers.
Dietary fibers can neither be digested nor absorbed so they reach the lower intestinal tract in an intact form. Some of these fibers are divided into organic acid molecules by enzymes from colon bacteria. This is how the change the chemicals of the faeces to be acidic therefore killing dangerous bacteria. With their water binding capabilities and their own weight, fibers are able to increase the content of faeces, enhance bowel movements, reduce the transit time for faeces and make it softer and much easier to empty.
