Benefits of Cassava
High amounts of dietary fiber
Cassava contains high amounts of dietary fiber, (namely insoluble fiber) which can help prevent and or alleviate constipation. Fiber at a glance, helps you lose weight as it promotes long lasting satiety. It has the potential to also help reduce your unhealthy cholesterol levels (if you have unhealthy cholesterol), which lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases. If you are suffering from diabetes, eating fiber rich cassava may help lower your blood sugar levels.
