School of Public Health
This study assessed nutritional status of obese Australians, to determine fibre supplementations impact on micronutrients. Data at baseline and 3 months supplementation was compared to clinical reference intervals. Significant associations between BMI and vitamin D, magnesium, potassium, and serum folate were found. No significance between fibre groups and micronutrient status found at 3 months. Further research will confirm whether fibre supplementation (>15g/day) impairs micronutrient status in the long term.
