What is Inulin?

Inulin is a prebiotic or a soluable dietry fibre. It is considered a fructon cannot be digested in the small intestine, thereby moving along into the large intestine to become a food source (prebiotic)  for the probiotics there. In other words, it stimulated the growth of good bacteria in the intestine.

It can also help the body absorb calcium and help blood sugar stay balanced.

Inulin is found in garlic, chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, leek, and bananas.
