Fiber against diabetes

 
 

Fiber from grain products lowers the risk to get diabetes

Studies have demonstrated that grain fiber can effectively lower the blood sugar level and is therefore a proven method against cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. 

The ProFi-Met (protein, fiber, and metabolic syndrome) study by A.F.H. Pfeiffer and C. Honig, a long-term study published in 2011 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, impressively emphasized this result: The subjects, 111 male and female participants with an average age of 50 and a BMI of 30, were subdivided into four groups.
The first group followed the diet recommended by the German Society for Nutrition:  55% carbohydrates, 15% protein, 30% fat. The second group supplemented this diet by adding 15 g of oat fiber twice a day. The diet of the third group consisted of 40–45% of carbohydrates, 25–30% protein and 30% fat, and the one of the fourth group contained a higher proportion of protein and fiber.

The oat fiber group was clearly the leader with regard to insulin sensitivity

The combination of oat fiber and protein was also decisive for improving insulin sensitivity, as it blocks protein intake from the intestine and activates energy metabolism. 

The 67-study meta-analysis carried out by L. Brown already in 1999 also proves that soluble fiber additionally lowers cholesterol concentration in the blood. Although insoluble fibers like cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and resistant starch do not seem to influence the cholesterol level directly, they effectively lower the risk for cardiovascular disease.  


The more insoluble fiber is ingested, the lower is the diabetes risk

In addition, grain fiber also lowers the risk for the progression of prediabetes. 

Not much is needed for this: 3–5% fiber is already enough to achieve it. A small additive with a far-reaching effect: Although it cannot be tasted, fiber makes a decisive contribution to our health. 

The food industry has recognized this by already offering food products with added fiber that our body can also put to good use.

 
 

Dear VITACEL® friends,
A balanced diet is an important part of a healthy life.  Dietary fiber plays an important role in a healthy diet.  Unfortunately, the German populace consume, on average, about 10 g too little dietary fiber - 1/3 of the daily requirement. In view of the rapidly increasing incidence of type 2 diabetes, eating more insoluble cereal fiber would be particularly desirable. If you wish to learn more about this you are welcome to contact me. I look forward to your questions about dietary fiber and healthy nutrition!
