Adding fiber may decrease the blood lipids after eating a meal as well as suppress the appetite. A great source of fiber is fresh ground flax seed. Not only does it have the general benefits of supplemental fiber, but it is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids known to help reduce inflammatory response.

  1. Great information Dr. Ben. This is a simple nutritional benefit everybody can easily include in their daily intake.

  2. Teff is another wonderful source of fiber that I recently discovered! It is high in fiber and protein which are great for balancing blood sugar levels. Teff also serves as a great source of iron that absorbs well in our system.
