Inulin is sourced from Chicory Root and is a class of dietary fibres known as fructans or fructooligosaccharide and is used by some plants as a means of storing energy
Typically found in roots or rhizomes; most plants that synthesise and store it do not store other forms of carbohydrate such as starch.
Using inulin to measure kidney function is the “gold standard” for comparison with other means of estimating creatinine clearance.
Inulin is a fructooligosaccharide that acts as a prebiotic, so it stimulates the healthy growth of friendly intestinal bacteria, which supports good colon health.
As a dietary supplement it has been shown to slow digestion, specifically the digestion of carbohydrates.
This may allow sugar to be released more slowly with less of a ‘spike’ which in turn may promote healthy blood sugar levels.
As a dietary supplement it adds bulk to your stool and can improve the frequency of your bowel movements.
However, as digestion rate is reduced your body is able to better absorb nutrients from the food you eat.
