Fibre - For a healthy digestive system

Fibre is the non-digestible part of plant foods, such as vegetables, fruit, beans and legumes. There are two main types of fibre: insoluble and soluble. Insoluble fibre bulks up stools, making them softer and easier to pass. It also moves waste through the digestive tract more quickly. Soluble fibre provides fuel for bacteria, encouraging beneficial microflora in the gut..
