Relieving Constipation and Lowering Cholesterol – There’s A Simple Solution!

Posted January 5, 2011 by admin

Try adding prunes to your daily diet. We know not everyone enjoys the taste of a prune, but if it helps keep you healthy, why not give it a go. Five prunes alone contain up to 12% of your daily value in fiber. Prunes contain both insoluble and soluble fiber. What does this mean?

Insoluble fiber is what helps to keep you regular. This fiber sweeps through the digestive tract as a whole, and is not absorbed by the body. This fiber grabs water along the way as it’s collecting waste, making it easier for you to stay regular.

Soluble fiber is the type of fiber you need to help keep cholesterol levels down, which may help decrease the risk of heart disease.

5 Prunes a day helps keep the Doctor away.
