Description

Inulin is a natural fibre found in many fruits and vegetables and used alongside FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) , they promote gut and overall health through their fermentation by gut flora, to yield important metabolites, including lactic acid and the short chain fatty acids.

These metabolites help to maintain proper pH in the gut, discourage the growth of unfriendly bacteria, increase levels of bifidum bacteria, reduce the absorption of toxic ammonia and positively affect bone health by increasing the bioavailability of dietary calcium. Moreover, acetate, propionate and butyrate  (short chain fatty acids) promote the integrity of the intestinal cells lining the colon and promote healthy lipid metabolism.

Great for overall maintenance of the gut or as a relief from constipation.
