Do you eat whole wheat bread?
Many people don’t. They either prefer the taste of white bread. Or they don’t think that the white bread is not so good for their health. Either way, they probably aren’t sure how whole wheat bread can help their health.
In this post, we’ll discuss a couple of the benefits of whole wheat bread that you don’t want to take for granted.
According to UCSF Health, “the American Heart Association Eating Plan suggests eating a variety of food fiber sources. Total dietary fiber intake should be 25 to 30 grams a day from food, not supplements. Currently, dietary fiber intakes among adults in the United States average about 15 grams a day. That’s about half the recommended amount.”
Here’s a solution: whole wheat bread. A slice of whole wheat bread can have about 3 grams of fiber. While you hopefully wouldn’t be eating 9 slices of bread a day, you’d be betting a third of the recommended daily intake with just 3 slices.
If this list doesn’t have impressive health benefits, what does?
Whole wheat bread isn’t for everyone, though, warns Healthline. So make sure to speak to your doctor especially if you suffer from celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, or are allergic to gluten.
If you don’t are able to eat whole wheat bread, why not give it a try? Your body may thank you one day.
