The three types are collagenous fibers, elastic fibers, and reticular fibers. Some examples of collagenous fibers are; tendons, skin, bone, teeth, hyaline cartilage, vitreous humor, the lens of the eye, cartilage, hair, and placenta. Some examples of elastic fibers are found in arteries, veins, and elastic cartilage. Some examples of reticular fibers are found in the meshwork of bone marrow, the liver, and lymphatic system.
Fibers as such are not required. Fibers are not digested as such and consist of little nutritional value. It is still a good idea though to eat food rich in fibers. This will help ensure a healthy dietary system, stomach and intestines will work better if they have something to work on. Between 25-35 grams of fibers are recommended on a daily basis (a normal adult).
