Healtharena Inulin, as seen on the BBC TV Programme ‘How to Stay Young’ with Angela Rippon, is the most effective type of Inulin available. It consists of 90% Native Chicory Inulin and 10% FOS. This balance gives the most optimum benefit to digestion. The FOS works on the right side of the colon, helping the healthy bacteria to multiply. Then the Native Chicory Inulin reaches the left side of the colon, as it has a longer chain length.
Native Chicory Inulin (the type of Inulin used in Healtharena’s Inulin) is proven to contribute to the maintenance of improved bowel function by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
Inulin decreases the body’s ability to store certain kinds of fats and releases an acid, which enters the body and slowly reduces internal fat (visceral fat). Visceral fat is body fat that is stored around internal organs, such as the heart, liver, pancreas and intestines. This fat can cause numerous health problems.
It would be necessary to eat unrealistic quantities of lentils and pulses daily to get similar benefits that supplementing your diet with Inulin provides. Adding Inulin to the diet has been shown to help reduce fat absorption by up to 50%.
