PRE-BIOTIC; PROMOTES NUTRITION ABSORPTION.
Inulin is high in soluble fiber, which slows digestion, allowing the body to better absorb nutrients from food. Studies indicate that calcium absorption can increase by as much as 20 percent, and magnesium absorption by up to 12 percent. It is also a pre-biotic, which promotes the growth of good bacteria in the intestines.
While fiber has no caloric value, it is essential for good health and increases a sense of satiety. Inulin can aid digestion, support bone health, boost the immune system, reduce cholesterol and help control blood sugar. Common sources of inulin are chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke and the blue agave plant from Mexico.
