Fibre is often divided into two categories – insoluble fibre and soluble fibre and both interact with water in the body but in different ways.
Insoluble fibre doesn’t mix with water and acts mostly as a bulking agent to help form stool and allowing it pass through the gut easily, helping with issues of constipation.
Soluble fibre, also known as beta-glucan, mixes with water to form a gel-like substance which slows down how fast the stomach releases digested food into the gut.
Eating more soluble fibre can also help you lose belly fat and prevent belly fat again.
In fact, soluble fibre may help reduce belly fat in several ways.
