Benefits of Plum
The soluble fibre in plum
The soluble fibre in plum also helps to lower cholesterol by soaking up extra bile in the intestine and then excreting it. Bile is made in the liver to digest fat. When the body excretes bile, along with fibre, the liver makes use of cholesterol in the body to make more bile thereby lowering the amount in circulation in the body. Soluble fibre also inhabits the amount of cholesterol manufactured by the liver in the first place.
