- Inulin, extracted from the roots of chicory
- Suitable for diabetics!
Inulin is a fructose polymer and, depending on the length of its polymer chain, distinguishes its particular species.
Inulin is defined as a type of polysaccharide used in the food industry to improve the taste and consistency of both low-fat foods and those with low sugar content. It can also be used as a substitute for high-calorie ingredients such as sugar, flour or fat.
Inulin or so-called plant fiber is contained in over 36,000 different plants, with the highest inulin content distinguishing chicory.
Inulin passes through the stomach and the small intestine without disturbing its integrity. Passing through the digestive tract, the inulin creates a gel that remains undigested and thus reaches the colon.
There, almost entirely undiluted, it becomes an ideal food for good bacteria. To these properties, inulin adds one more indispensable - it reduces the ability of our body to form a certain type of fat.
Regular intake of inulin works favorably in hypertension, improves lipid metabolism and works favorably in diabetes. Inulin also helps with constipation and improves the absorption of minerals from the body.
Cholesterol and triglycerides
Because inulin is not absorbed by the stomach and intestine, its regular intake leads to a reduction in toxins in the body as well as to the regulation of bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
For healthy intestines
Daily intake of inulin results in a significant increase in intestinal bifidobacteria. Inulin thus helps to reduce the pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus and others. Inulin has a probiotic effect.
Due to the fact that inulin does not disintegrate when digesting monosaccharides, its consumption does not increase blood sugar levels. This property makes inulin the ideal product for people who suffer from diabetes.
For weight loss
Inulin slows the absorption of nutrients and thus prolongs the period of satiety. On intake, inulin increases its volume (swells), thus filling the stomach and reducing appetite. Upon pathological increase in body mass, the microflora of the intestine is always altered. And this change speeds up the gain. Inulin holds beneficial bacteria in the gut and suppresses those that can cause various diseases, including obesity.
