Fibre is an important part of a healthy balanced diet. It helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and some cancers and can also improve digestive health. However, many people don’t get enough fibre. On average, most people in the UK get about 18g of fibre a day. You should aim for at least 30g a day.
Research shows that fibre could be key to shredding fat, with just 30g of the good stuff helping you shrink your waistline. But don’t worry! You don’t have to live on just prunes to get your daily intake of fibre in order to help our bowel with the movements they need!
