We all know that dietary fiber is important for healthy digestion, but did you realize there are two types of fiber? Soluble fiber is water soluble and forms a gel-like substance and can aid in lowering blood cholesterol and glucose levels, while insoluble fiber remains largely intact and promotes the movement of material through your digestive system. Both are important for healthy digestion and are found in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
