Dietary fiber is extremely important for maintaining good health. Fiber helps to maintain the health of your bowels and ensures that your bowel movements are easy and normal. According to the Mayo Clinic, a high-fiber diet can even help lower your cholesterol and control your blood sugar. Senior men should aim to get 30 grams of fiber a day, and senior women should try to get at least 21 grams a day.
