Inulin as many health benefits. Inulin increases calcium absorption, benificial to those with osteoporosis and possibly magnesium absorption, while promoting the growth of intestinal bacteria. In terms of nutrition, it is considered a form of soluble fiber and is sometimes categorized as a prebiotic, meaning to stimulate the growth of positibe bacteria in your digestive system. Due to the body's limited ability to process polysaccharides, inulin has minimal increasing impact on blood sugar, and—unlike fructose—is not insulemic and does not raise triglycerides, making it considered suitable for diabetics and potentially helpful in managing blood sugar-related illnesses. The consumption of large quantities can lead to gas and bloating, and products that contain inulin will sometimes include a warning to add it gradually to your diet.


More information about INULIN (CHICORY ROOT FIBER).

Medically Inulin is usedto help measure kidney function by determining the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). GFR is the volume of fluid filtered from the renal glomerular capillaries into the Bowman's capsule per unit time. Inulin is of particular use as it is not secreted or reabsorbed in any appreciable amount at the nephron allowing GFR to be calculated, rather than total renal filtration. However, due to clinical limitations, inulin is rarely used for this purpose and creatinine values are the standard for determining an approximate GFR. It is also used for rehydration and reminaralization following important loss of water, like diarrhea and diaphoresis.

Also chicory is know to be harmful to internal parasites.
