Second, a little more dietary fiber and fruit enzymes: Dietary fiber is the human intestinal enzyme can not break down the plant non-starch polysaccharides and lignin, can promote gastrointestinal motility, divided into water-soluble fiber and water-insoluble fiber. Water-soluble fibers include a variety of fruits, beans, oatmeal, gourmet, edible fungus, seaweed, seaweed, mushrooms, melons, pods and vegetable stems; rather than water-soluble fibers including vegetables and whole grains. Natural enzymes can help food digestion, reduce the chance of constipation, pineapple, kiwi and papaya all contain a lot of enzymes.
