Cellulose is a polysaccharide compound. Food cellulose includes crude fiber, semi-crude fiber and lignin. The role of cellulose: ① help enteral E. coli synthesis of a variety of vitamins.
② cellulose proportion of small, bulky, occupy a larger space in the gastrointestinal, people have a sense of satiety, is conducive to weight loss.
③ cellulosic volume, after eating can stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, so that increased secretion of digestive juice and gastrointestinal motility increased, can prevent and cure diabetes constipation.
④ high fiber diet can be delayed by gastric emptying, intestinal transit time changes, soluble fibers in the intestine to form a gel and other effects of sugar absorption slow down. Can also reduce the metabolism of pancreatic islet B cells by reducing the secretion of intestinal hormones such as gastric peptides or glucagon, reduce insulin release and increase the sensitivity of peripheral insulin receptors, glucose metabolism to strengthen.
⑤ recent studies have shown that high fiber diets in patients with type 1 diabetes mononuclear cells with insulin receptor binding increased, thereby saving the amount of insulin requirements. Diabetic patients eating high-fiber diet, not only can improve the high blood sugar, reduce the application of insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs dose, and is conducive to weight loss, but also prevention and treatment of constipation.
