If you are like most Canadians, you’re likely not getting enough fibre in your diet: Canadians average about 14g per day. That's much less than the daily recommendation for people 9 years & older of 25-38g/day (4-8 years: 25g/day, 1-3 years: 19g/day).
Fibre provides many benefits beyond keeping your bowels regular - it also plays an important cardio-protective role.
