Dietary Fibers refer to the part of plant-based food that is not able to be totally broken down by normal digestive enzymes. Fibers come in many different chemical compositions and are grouped generally on the basis of their physical and chemical properties, which impact how they are processed inside the human body. Some of the soluble fibers found in plant food are called non-starchy, while others are called complex. Fibers can also be extracted from plants, including fruits and vegetables. While there are many benefits associated with Dietary Fibers, both for our bodies and our health, they have potential health hazards as well.
Non-starchy fibers, especially those that are soluble, have a wide range of physiological effects in the human body. These fibers may have negative effects on cardiovascular systems, but the evidence is unclear. Fibers seem to have some effect on blood pressure and may contribute to atherosclerosis, the plaques that develop in arteries walls. However, there is no evidence that dietary fiber alone can prevent the onset of atherosclerosis. In addition to this, fibers may also interact with other substances, most notably vitamins, minerals, hormones, cholesterol, and insulin, and interfere with their biological activities. In some studies, soluble fibers have been shown to cause some harm to the kidneys and to increase the risk of certain types of cancer.
