What is Fiber?

According to the USDA, dietary fiber is the nondigestible form of carbohydrates and lignin that occurs naturally in plants. Foods that are higher in fiber are vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and whole grains. Common forms of whole grains include: whole wheat, oats, rye, barley, corn, brown and wild rice, buckwheat, cracked wheat and quinoa. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in 2010 from the USDA, the daily adequate intake of fiber is 14 grams per 1000 calories. The recommended daily amount of fiber per day is 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men. The average intake of fiber per day averages around 15 grams which is well below the recommended amount.

As the body ages, old injuries and previous illnesses may contribute more and more to decreased flexibility and increased joint inflammation.

Antioxidants work by scavenging free radicals known to cause tissue damage.
