Dietary fiber (dietary fiber, roughage) is an essential nutrient required for proper digestion of foods and helping you feel full.
A deficiency of fiber can lead to constipation, hemorrhoids, and elevated levels of cholesterol and sugar in the blood.
Conversely, an excess of fiber can lead to a bowel obstruction, diarrhea, or even dehydration.
Individuals who increase their intake of fiber should also increase their intake of water. High fiber foods include beans, lentils, avocados, chia seeds, acorn squash, green peas, collard greens, broccoli, oranges, and sweet potato. The current daily value (DV) for dietary fiber is 25 grams.
