Added to Strong, with our favourite Magnesium Glycinate, we recommend taking just before sleeping for deep, quality slumber and more effective gut health action.
Fibre is any type of carbohydrate the body can’t digest. It moves through the intestines intact and continues into the colon to serve as a food for the bacteria there. Fibre has no caloric value, but it’s essential to good health.
The fibre in inulin is soluble, which means it dissolves in water. It dissolves in the stomach and then forms a gelatinous substance that:
removes cholesterol as it passes through the digestive tract
It improves digestive health
Your gut contains between 15,000 and 36,000 species of bacteria. Only a small portion of the bacteria in the body has the potential to be harmful. Good bacteria provide many health benefits. Inulin stimulates these bacteria to grow.
Inulin aids digestion by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut, particularly Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These bacteria help:
fend off unwanted pathogens (bad bacteria)
stimulate your immune system
Controls blood sugar
Inulin slows digestion, including the digestion of carbohydrates. This allows sugar to be released slowly without spiking, which promotes healthy blood sugar levels.
A study in 2015 revealed that inulin might benefit people with pre diabetes. It can act as a potential blood-stabiliser when present in your diet over a long period of time.
Drink plenty of water when incorporating it into your diet if you have irritable bowel syndrome or a sensitive digestive tract. This will help prevent constipation.
