Fiber to Lower Cholesterol and Improve Health

Posted on

A recent New York Times article, You Probably Aren’t Getting Enough Fiber…Here’s why that’s a problem, and how to fix it, caught my attention. It’s been a long time since I wrote about fiber and I was intrigued because fiber is a key tool for naturally lowering cholesterol and improving health.

The author, Alice Callahan, notes in the article that “…just 4 percent of men and 12 percent of women met fiber recommendations — at least 21 to 38 grams per day, depending on a person’s age and sex.”  So, many of us are likely fiber-deficient, which is a shame because it’s really not that hard to add fiber daily.
