Inulin

Inulin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is obtained, for example, from plants such as chicory, parsnips or Jerusalem artichokes. Since the human body lacks the enzyme inulinase, it is not broken down in the small intestine and migrates as dietary fibre to the large intestine.

There, as a prebiotic, inulin serves as food for the intestinal bacteria. Thus, inulin has a positive effect on our intestinal flora and can increase the absorption of calcium and magnesium. In the stomach, inulin reduces the feeling of hunger by swelling.

Recent studies now contain further details on this: "Inulin modulates those hormones that transmit the feeling of satiety to the brain. Those who consume this substance feel fuller for longer and are better able to actively participate in determining their weight."
