A high-fibre diet can reduce the risk of stroke, hypertension, and heart disease along with normalising bowel movements.
Experts recommend that men under 50 eat about 38 grams of fibre each day and women consume 25 grams. Adults over 50 require less fibre (30 grams for men and 21 grams for women) due to decreased food consumption.
To put that into perspective, a young man is supposed to eat the same amount of fibre found in 15 slices of whole-wheat bread every day.
