What is Oil Palm Fibre?
Palm Tree

Oil Palm Fibres is grown in certain parts of Africa, Indonesia and Malaysia with Malaysia producing 50% of oil palm fibre used around the world.

There are currently a lot of research being done on oil palm trunk fibres, which suggests that it could be one of the best sources of fibre known today. Oil Palm fibres contain more than 70% of dietary fibres, mostly insoluble fibres. Insoluble fibres are especially invaluable because it can hold up in harsh environments such as the digestive system. Other significant aspects of such fibres is that they are light, absorbs a lot of water and does not congeal easily.

Oil Palm Fibre also contains lignin. Lignin can bind to different substances such as cholesterol, bile salts, fats, carbohydrates and toxins to improve the overall health of the colon system.

Truths about Dietary Fibres:

Misconception of Fruit Juices
A survey conducted by Healthcare Organization shows that over 80% of people mistake fruit juices to help alleviate symptoms of constipations. In fact, it is the skin of the fruit, which contains most of the dietary fibre. A glass of fruit juice contains only 0.5g of dietary fibres however, a mid-size apple (with the skin) contains 4g and therefore a fruit without their skin contains around 45% less dietary fibres.

Sinking Feces
Sinking stool can indicate that a person is on a low fibre diet. Their stool is often darker in color, which indicates that it has been sitting in the intestines for a prolonged period of time.

Laxatives – Not the right solution
Laxatives contain chemicals that can stimulate bowel movement temporarily. If misused or overused, it can cause problems including diarrhea and dehydration.

Withholding Stool
City living is demanding and sometimes you are just too busy to visit the washroom. The colon removes excess water from feces and when the feces remain in the colon for too long due to withholding, the feces becomes hard and painful to expel. In the long run or left unattended for a long period of time, the problem is the weakened or loss of normal bowel movement signals.

No Constipation = Healthy Colon?
Many people might not know the indicators of a healthy colon. Usually people treat constipation as a preliminary sign of an unhealthy colon. In fact, even without constipation, the toxins accumulated in the colon may contribute to many health issues as it will be re-absorbed into the bloodstream and circulate around the body.
