TAKE FIBRE TO HEART
Based on the 2015 National Health and Morbidity Survey, it is estimated that 47.7% of Malaysian adults 18 years and above have hypercholesterolaemia, or high blood cholesterol. This is a serious matter as high blood cholesterol increases the risk for heart and blood vessel disease.
A key to a healthy heart and circulation is a balanced diet and lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet helps to reduce the modifiablerisk factors for heart and blood vessel disease, such asblood cholesterol levels, obesity and blood pressure. Physical activity and not smoking also play an important role in reducing the risk of developing heart disease.
A balanced dietshould be low in saturated fat, focusing on high fibre wholegrain foods, vegetables and fruits. Variety and fibre rich foods are also important. The Heart Foundation recommends all adults to eat 30 grams of fibre each day.
FIBRE IS AN IMPORTANT DIETARY COMPONENT
Dietary fibre is the term for several materials that make up the parts of plants your body can’t digest. Fibre is classified as soluble or insoluble.
Soluble fibre has been shown to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, thus lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. While insoluble fibre has been associated with decreased cardiovascular risk and slower progression of cardiovascular disease in high-risk individuals.
Fruits, vegetablesand grains such as legumes, beans, peasare excellent sources of both soluble and insoluble fibre.
Eating fibre rich foods helps with weight management, improve blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart and blood vessel disease.
