How Much Fiber Do I Need?


Fiber SourcesThe daily fiber needed can range from 25-35 mg daily.  That is,  you should have 25-35 mg of fiber in your food and/or supplements each day.  In fact, if you fall significantly below this range, you may suffer from constipation.  With constipation, the food stays in the colon longer than it should.   Then, the toxins released from the blood into the colon, to go back into the blood.  This is called re-absorption.  These undesirable consequences make it important to really understand just what fiber is and where it can be found.

Fiber Sources

What is fiber?

Fiber is the part of your food that your body cannot digest.  Therefore, it is the part of your food that will help bulk up your fecal matter.  This allow you to have appropriate sized bowel movements.  Fiber also holds onto toxins and helps remove them from your body with each bowel movement.

How many grams of fiber are needed for each bowel movement?

Typically,  you need 3-6 mg of fiber for a bowel movement.  If you fall significantly below this range, the content of your colon can sit in your colon too long.  The longer it sits there, the dryer it becomes.  This leads to constipation.
