Why do we need fibre?
A high content of fibre protects organisms from alimentary tract disorders, reduces risk of colon cancer, obesity, cardiac diseases, helps to lower dangerous (LDL) cholesterol level in the blood, reduces blood pressure, prevents constipation and protects from many civilisation diseases. Food with enough fibre boosts feelings of saturation, therefore you need smaller portions. The richest in fibre are wholegrain products, especially muesli, oat meals and also fruits and vegetables.
The Czech Republic is world-leader in the incidence of serious alimentary tract disorders. Apart from genetic predispositions one of the main reasons are long-term incorrect eating habits with a low share of fibre in food.
The Harvard University survey of 90,000 males and 25,000 females over 6 - 10 years proved that each 10 g of fibre consumed per day reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases including heart attack by 14 %.
