2. Normalized Digestion

Fiber is classified as either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber support gastrointestinal health, but in different ways. Soluble fiber prevents watery stools, while insoluble fiber prevents constipation. Most high-fiber foods contain both types of fiber, which helps normalize digestion. Soluble fiber ferments in the large intestine, which promotes the growth of good bacteria. Soluble fiber also acts as the substance through which bacteria produce long-chain fatty acids found to reduce inflammation in the gut.
