Soluble Fibre Supplementation May Help Reduce Abdominal Fat

June 16, 2011: 11:45 AM EST
A study revealed that increased consumption of soluble fibre may help lower the amount of deep belly fat or abdominal fat that humans accumulate. Researchers examined possible links between lifestyle factors — such as smoking, physical activity, calorie intake, and fat intake — and five-year change in abdominal fat as measured by computed tomography in the Insulin Resistance and Atherosclerosis Family Study. Results showed that soluble fiber intake and vigorous physical activities were inversely related to change in visceral adipose tissue, but soluble fiber played no role in change in subcutaneous adipose tissue.
