Fiber is the substance our body needs to help our colon function much more efficiently. Fiber is very abundant in vegetables and has become a staple food type in multiple healthy diet regimens.
Why is it so important? Fiber pushes the unwanted wastes in our bodies outside. It naturally helps our body get rid of toxins and accumulated sedentary substances from eating processed food.
Fiber functions by not only pushing the bad stuff away but by also preventing them from entering our system by binding to them. This in turn makes it better for our colon to function since something is now making its job easier.
A good example of a good source of fiber, and other nutrients our body needs, is the broccoli.
Broccoli is the kind of vegetable which accounts for its rather high amount of fiber content. It goes without saying the every leafy vegetable has good fiber content but the broccoli is special. This super food is packed with super amounts of fiber which, if eaten regularly, helps regulate and maintains healthy digestion as well as remove the toxins which remain in our intestines even after so many years.
Even the sulfur compounds found in broccoli help eliminate the bacteria in the stomach which has a very high chance of causing stomach ulcers. Aside from colon cleansing, the broccoli can even act as an antiviral and antibiotic type of food. Now who wouldn’t want to eat broccoli?
Broccoli, since high in fiber, can also be used as a healthy staple in a weight loss diet. From athletes to gymnasts, wrestlers, and even those who are just in it for the sports regularly eat their vegetables and broccoli is one of them.
The plant itself promotes satiety which prevents us from over eating. And the rest of the fiber will then be used to sweep away the otherwise unhealthy remnants from the food we eat which will enable us to acquire a healthy weight. Truth be told, a good diet is a diet with lots and lots of vegetables involved. What better way to create a diet than to have the broccoli as one of the main components?
