VitaBran contains 96% insoluble and 4% soluble fibre providing multiple health benefits to aid in cancer prevention and lower cholesterol. A high concentration of insoluble fibers is beneficial to your health because insoluble fibres are a gut-healthy fiber. Gut-healthy fibres (1) add bulk to the diet which helps prevent constipation, (2) do not dissolve in water and therefore pass through the gastrointestinal tract relatively intact, and (3) speed up the passage of food and waste through your gut.
Recent research has shown that corn can support the growth of friendly bacteria in our large intestine that produce short chain fatty acids, or SCFAs. SCFAs can supply energy to our intestinal cells and thereby help lower our risk of intestinal problems, including our risk of colon cancer. The amount of corn fiber used in these recent studies was 12 grams per day. That’s the same amount provided by about 2.5 cups of fresh corn or only 16 grams of VitaBran.
