Fiber, also called roughage or cellulose, should be an important part of anyone’s daily diet. It helps to reduce fatty deposits. Here is how it works: When fiber enters your digestive system it absorbs the available liquids, then as it goes through the body it almost has a sweeping or cleaning effect on the cells.
Fiber is not digested by your system. It goes through your system sweeping out the bad stuff and then facilitates elimination. It also reduces the re-absorbtion of bile salts (salts that digest and break up fats). Since the bile salts are prevented from re-absorbing, the fat is not permitted to re-enter into your system again.
