Hyperlipidemia is basically a fancy name for high cholesterol, and most people are familiar with the dangers of that, particularly to the cardiovascular system. Dietary fiber not only helps to balance cholesterol levels in the body by scraping off and eliminating excess cholesterol, but it also impacts the digestive system. One of the conditions most closely associated with hyperlipidemia is diabetes, but dietary fiber can help prevent that by regulating the uptake and release of nutrients in the gut. Dietary fiber is found in concentrated forms in foods like bran, figs, rice, beans, apples and peas.
