NOW's Inulin is a fructooligosaccharide derived from Chicory Root.  As a prebiotic, Inulin stimulates the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health.  Since it also has a very low glycemic index, it is suitable for many people who are on restricted diets.  Add it to your favorite beverage or food.  Its taste is comparable to sugar and can be used as a sugar replacer.

Inulin, also known as a polysaccharide, is a soluble fibre classed as a fructan. Fructans are chains of fructose indigestible by our body, but loved by the good bacteria in our gut flora. Since our body cannot digest the fructans, inulin has very little impact on blood sugar and unlike other sugars is not insulemic.A daily dose of the recommended intake of inulin promotes immune system function, supports the cardiovascular system, and enhances the absorption of minerals in the body. Furthermore inulin can be vital for weight loss or calorie reduced diets, works as a digestive aid, and can be invaluable for diabetics.

  • By feeding and enhancing bifidobacteria in the colon, inulin has been shown to stimulate the immune system and inhibit harmful pathogens in the intestine that could otherwise harm the gut mucosa.
  • Studies also show that diets containing inulin reduce colon cancer risk by reducing the impact of genotoxins. Lowers triglycerides in the blood, reducing the risk of heart disease.

Intake of inulin may help prevent diseases related to blood lipids and blood glucose. Diets containing inulin can help reduce lipoprotein. Inulin increases the regularity and volume of stool, diminishing constipation and diarrhea. Inulin can help prevent relapses in c. difficile associated diarrhea. Diets containing inulin help reduce the risk of metabolic diseases by releasing amino acid chains in the gut and regulating digestion. Daily consumption of inulin reduces appetite, making weight loss easier. Inulin's effect on the gut microbiota can help stem obesity, and has a sweet taste making it very useful as a sugar replacement. It thickens and gels making it fantastic thickening agent and substitute for fat.
