Inulin belongs to a group of non digestive oligosaccharides. It is classified as a dietary fibre.
It functions as a substrate for the colon microbiota and may be very useful to the immune system and gastrointestinal physiology.
Among the many benefits provided by inulin, there is a reduction of health risks such as gastrointestinal infections, constipation, non-insulin-dependent diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and colon cancer.
Studies have shown that inulin could improve your digestive health, thus boosting your immune system.
Moreover, inulin could increase the level of butyric acid, a key ally in the fight against colon’s inflammatory and neoplastic diseases. Furthermore, inulin could:
-> increase the absorption of calcium and magnesium
-> affect blood glucose level
-> reduce the concentration of cholesterol and serum lipids
