Fibre, also known as dietary fibre or roughage is a type of carbohydrate which is neither digested nor absorbed by our body. However, this important plant-based nutrition is required by our body to maintain digestive health and regulate bowel movement.

The healthy way to include fibre-rich foods in your diet is by adding vegetables. There are several vegetables like carrots, peas and beans which are packed with fibre. These fibre-rich vegetables do not get absorbed by our digestive system but help to bulk up the stomach and make the digestion process slow. This prevents the sudden spike of glucose and cholesterol levels in our body. Fibre-rich vegetables are healthy, nutritional, good to taste and considered the best foods to ease constipation, diabetes, bowel cancer and other digestive problems.
