- Meal Cellulose or dietary fiber
Meal cellulose, also referred to dietary fiber, includes all parts of plant foods that the body can not digest or absorb. Therefore, it passes relatively intact through our stomach, small intestine, colon and out of our body. It might seem like fiber does not do much, but it has several important roles in maintaining health.
- Soluble fiber or insoluble fiber
Fiber is commonly classified into two categories: those that don’t dissolve in water (insolube fiber) and those that do (soluble fiber).
Soluble fiber dissolve in water to form a gel-like materials. It can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Soluble fiber is found in oats, peas, beans, apple, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium.
Insoluble fiber promotes the movement of material through our digestive system and increases stool bulk, so it can be of benefit to those who struggle with constipation or irregular stools. Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts and many vegetables are good sources of insoluble fiber.
- Normalizes bowel movement and maintain bowel integrity and health
Meal Cellulose increases the weight and size of the stool and softens it. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing the chance of constipation. If we have loose and watery stools, it may also help to solidify the stool because it absorbs water and add bulk to stool. For some, Meal Cellulose may provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome.
It may lower the risk of developing hemorrhoids, and small pounches in the colon (divericular disease).
It dilutes carcinogen, decreases the density of carcinogen and minimizes the duration of toxic substance in the intestine, helps to prevent the occurrence of colon cancer and rectum cancer.
- Lower blood cholesterol levels
Soluble fiber in Meal Cellulose helps lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,”cholesterol levels. Epidemiologic studies have shown that increased fiber in the diet can reduce blood pressure and inflammation, which is also protective to heart health.
- Helps control blood sugar levels
Soluble fiber can slow the absorption of sugar, which for people with diabetes can help improve blood sugar levels. A diet that includes insoluble fiber has been associated with a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
- Aids in Weight loss
Meal Cellulose gives a feeling of fullness and high-fiber diets also tend to be less ënergy dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food. Taking meal Cellulose before meals helps control the body weight.
