    Fiber is good for you

    Vegetable is very good for you because it has large amount of fiber and vitamin, but the percentage of fiber is much higher than vitamin. What fiber can do for you?
    Soluble fiber may help to slow your body's breakdown of carbohydrates and the absorption of sugar, helping with blood sugar control.
    An inverse association has been found between fiber intake and heart attack, and research shows that those eating a high-fiber diet have a 40 percent lower risk of heart disease. Researchers have found that for every seven-grams more fiber you consume on a daily basis, your stroke risk is decreased by 7 percent.
    Fiber supplements have been shown to enhance weight loss among obese people, likely because fiber increases feelings of fullness and slows carbohydrate metabolism. Fiber, particularly psyllium husk, may help move yeast and fungus out of your body, preventing them from being excreted through your skin where they could trigger acne or rashes. A high-fiber diet may lower your risk of hemorrhoids by preventing the need for straining.
    I will recommend 2 of many kind of food that can show off fiberís function. The 1st one is watercress.
    Watercress is very low in calories, but contains phytonutrients like isothiocyanates and antioxidants with a plethora of disease-preventive properties. Gluconasturtiin, a glucosinolate compound providing the peppery flavor, is one of them, contained in the leaves and stems and providing phenethyl isothiocyanates, shown to inhibit carcinogens. watercress can be submerged in water and stored in the refrigerator for two to three days. Before eating, rinse again and separate the leaves from the fibers and roots. In total, fiber in watercress occupies 2g  The very big number in such various nutrient veggie.
    You can read more in this article, it does not only bring about fiber, it also has many other nutrients that can improve your health constantly.
    The second rich in fiber-fruit is strawberries. This guy may not related to green veggie, but it has large amount of fiber that you can take advantage of.
    If you eat eight medium-sized strawberries youíll get 2 grams of dietary fiber, which supplies 5 percent of menís and 8 percent of womenís recommended daily intakes. Strawberries contain both types of fiber. About 60 percent of the total fiber is the insoluble type and the remaining 40 percent is soluble fiber, so this serving supplies 0.8 grams of your recommended soluble fiber intake. Two grams of fiber is not an excessive amount to obtain from a serving of strawberries.

    Alfalfa may be effective at reducing cholesterol levels, but there is no evidence that it can treat cancer and it has many side effects.
    Alfalfa contains fiber and a substance called saponins, which are thought to bind with cholesterol in the body and may reduce cholesterol levels. Alfalfa plants also contain phytoestrogens, which act like some human hormones. In fact, alfalfa phytoestrogens caused the growth of estrogen-dependent breast cancer cells. Alfalfa seeds also contain a toxic amino acid, L-canavanine. Levels of this amino acid vary widely across various cultivations of plants, and decrease as the plant matures. It is thought that this amino acid may be responsible for alfalfa’s ability to cause a relapse of lupus symptoms in patients who are in remission from the disease, and large levels of L-canavanine from alfalfa supplementation may have additional detrimental effects in humans.
    Because it also has a significant estrogenic effect, patients with hormone-sensitive cancers should avoid alfalfa.
