A new Harvard study finds fiber rich food may be healthier than the rest of the processed foods we eat.
In fact, a study published Monday in the journal Science suggests fiber rich diets may actually be a good thing for our health.
The Harvard Health Study found that people who consumed the highest amount of fiber, the highest fiber intake, in the diet reported fewer health issues than those who ate the lowest amounts.
The study looked at the health of 4,000 people, and found fiber was associated with a lower risk of death.
The researchers did not look at whether eating the most fiber in the foods they ate also reduced their risk of heart disease.
The research team said they are still looking into why people who consume more fiber may have lower rates of heart diseases than those consuming less.
But they said the results suggest it is possible that eating fiber rich fruits and vegetables may be better for our overall health.
Fiber is an essential nutrient, and as we eat more, our bodies convert it into energy, which is essential for everything from maintaining our metabolism to helping our bodies function.
The fiber in fruits and veggies is high in the amino acid arginine, which helps the body absorb water, making them one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.
Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of other nutrients, including vitamin B12, vitamin C, potassium, and folic acid.
Fruits and veggies also contain the mineral folate, which can help prevent a buildup of iron in the body.
Fruit and vegetables also contain phytochemicals called flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties and can help our bodies absorb and process the minerals.
Folate also helps the skin absorb nutrients, while arginin, the fiber, also helps absorb minerals from the skin.
The main ingredient in the green apple is lycopene, which has been linked to the prevention of prostate cancer.
The researchers said that lycopen is more effective in preventing cancer in the elderly than in the young.
Fibers, which are extracted from plants that grow in the leaves of the apple, contain lycopin, a hormone that plays a role in regulating how well our cells are functioning.
They also contain flavonols, which provide a healthy amount of vitamin B6.
The vitamin B4 is also found in the fruit.
The authors said that the study showed that the fiber intake may actually reduce the risk of certain diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
But the study was unable to show whether this was due to a change in our diets, or whether the fiber alone was linked to lower rates.
The scientists are not saying that eating more fiber will protect us from certain types of disease.
They said more research is needed to see if eating a higher amount of vegetables is even better for us.
