Get More Nutritious Goodness And Better Health From Changing Your Daily

Do you fall ill often or experience fatigue, weakness, nausea, heartburn, or constant irritability? There is a high chance that you may be lacking fibre and vitamins in your diet. Triggered by an unhealthy or unbalanced diet and the lack of physical activities, Malaysians are among many who place very little importance on their overall health and lifestyle due to busy lifestyles, placing us on the top of the list of Asian obese countries. However, by increasing your daily dietary fibre and vitamins intake, there can be an overall improvement to your health.

Why Fibre?

Fibre is the indigestible part of plant foods, such as grains, vegetables, beans and fruits. It is a type of carbohydrate that consist of various functions and health benefits. On average, the recommended amount of fibre intake per day for male and female adults over 18 years are 30 grams and 25 grams respectively. However, study has shown that fibre intake among Malaysians are only about 13g to 16g, which does not meet the intake goal of 20 grams to 30 grams. This is a sign that we need to start to find means to improve our lifestyle today.

Benefits of Fibre

There are two types fibre, namely insoluble and soluble, each containing its own goodness. Dietary fibre aids in stabilising blood glucose levels as well as lowers blood cholesterol levels through its absorbent nature and facilitates the smooth functioning of the digestion process which would help reduce constipation.

A high-fibre diet is generally lower in calories and causes you to feel full faster and for a longer period of time which helping individuals to stay at a healthy weight and lower the risk of many diseases including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The first best step for you to switch to a healthier lifestyle is as simple as including one fibre-packed food into your daily meal. The easiest choice could be fruits and juices such as apples, oranges, guavas and mangoes.


How to Get Your Daily Dose of Fibre and Vitamins?

Now you have learnt the health benefits of increasing fibre and vitamins into your daily diet, what‘s next? Remember to always select and include food packed with high fibre and vitamin dosage for better overall health. Here are some tips:

1. Wholegrain and wholemeal

Skip the white bread and pasta, look out for food labels with wholegrain and wholemeal. A good serving of whole grains will give you up to 3 grams of fibre. It also provides you with vitamin B that improves cell generation.

2. Fruits and juices

Fruits such as guava, apple, and mango are great sources of fibre and vitamins. When you get the urge to snack, have a serving of fruits or even a pre-packed juice to further complement your diet easily with its fibre and vitamin-ready benefits.
