Description

If you watched the BBC programme “How to Stay Young” you will have seen that Angela Rippon, 71 and very fit, was alarmed and amazed that she had the organs of a younger person but a high amount of visceral fat stored around all of her major organs including her heart.

Pure Inulin Powder

It is known that a kind of soluble fibre found in many vegetables, and also used as a food additive, can promote the loss of visceral fat - Inulin

Dosage

  • The recommended dosages seem to vary quite widely between 5 grams and 40 grams daily; also, individual reactions to Inulin vary. We recommend starting with a small amount and inceasing unless discomfort occurs.
  • Measure one flat scoop (approx. 4-6 grams) and mix with water, squash or juice and drink. Inulin can also be added to shakes and smoothies, or mixed with yoghurt. The important thing is to wait until the powder appears to have dissolved and to increase your fluid intake. After the first 4-5 days, two scoops (approx. 8-12 grams) can be taken, which is enough for the majority of people, although up to 40 grams daily can be taken if no unwanted effects occur.

Ingredients

  • 100% Chicory Root

Contraindications

  • Our Inulin is extracted from chicory, and chicory is a mild stimulant, so if you are sensitive to stimulants you are advised not to take it. Inulin may cause some stomach discomfort when first taken so we recommend starting with a small amount and gradually increasing. The fermentation of Inulin in the large intestine may cause flatulence, bloating and some degree of diarrhea as the body becomes accustomed to the new addition to the diet. A recent study comparing the effects of 5 grams daily and 8 grams daily noted that the higher dose produced less gas.
  • As with most supplements your body should guide you to your ideal dose.
  • There are no known interactions with other medicines or supplements.
  • Consuming Inulin will NOT affect blood sugar levels.

Country of Origin

  • Belgium

How Inulin Powder helps to reduce visceral fat

Visceral Fat - Also called Belly Fat - refers to fat deposits in the abdomen that are packed around organs such as the stomach, liver, intestines and kidneys. Visceral fat is considered to be the biggest health risk of any fat deposits, but it is the easiest to lose! Have you ever wondered why, when you manage to lose weight, the results may show up on the scales but take a long time to show up in the mirror? The reason is that, if you have stores of visceral fat, the weight you lose is composed of a mixture of visible fat and invisible, or visceral, fat. Typically, if you lose 8lbs in weight, between 25% and 50% of that loss will be visceral fat, incredibly beneficial for your health but not very noticeable in the mirror.

It is known that a kind of soluble fibre found in many vegetables, and also used as a food additive, can promote the loss of visceral fat - Inulin.

When eaten, Inulin is not digested in the stomach, instead it passes into the intestines largely unchanged, where it ferments and forms an ideal environment for the growth of healthy bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. As well as providing this environment for the growth of healthy intestinal flora, it also discourages the growth of many other, not so friendly, flora such as E Coli, Clostridium difficile the Candida fungus. Bifidobacteria digest inulin to produce short-chain fatty acids, such as acetic and propionic, which can be used by the liver for energy production.

The soluble fibre content of Inulin provides a feeling of fullness, and helps to ensure the slow passage of food through the gut, resulting in reduced appetite and also ensuring that more nutrients can be absorbed, especially minerals such as calcium and magnesium and trace minerals such as copper, iron and zinc

A supply of Inulin seems to help in lowering high levels of triglycerides. A reduction of up to 20% in triglyceride levels can be seen in eight weeks. Constipation is also much alleviated by taking soluble fibre. For more info see our blog article The Ultimate FAQ Guide to Inulin.

    I have found this most helpful as an aid to digestion, wouldn't be without it.

    This Pure Insulin is excellent. I use it every morning on my cereal and have seen the results. My digestion has improved significantly, no bloating, and I actually feel the difference. I will continue buying this product from Supplement Place

    The Powder came on the date promised and the packaging was in perfect condition. This is the best Pro-Biotic I have purchased. I recommend it and Supplement Place without reservation.

    Pure Inulin Powder

    Prompt delivery and easy to order. The powder is easy to use. I mix it in my muesli. Feeling fine although occasionally more than usual wind. Too early to see health effects.

    Pure inulin powder

    Posted by Catherine Roblett on 28th Dec 2017

    I have been using this product for about 18 months and am pleased with the result. I have lost a little weight and feel much healthier but am most pleased because I have been taking Omeprazole for acid reflux for several years and have halved the dosage in recent months with no ill effects. I'm sure this is because of having inulin in my diet. In general I think I am fitter.

    They are working

    Posted by Ria Khan on 16th Nov 2017

    I am taking two products Inulin and Baobab, and they are working. I saw these products on two separate t.v programmes about senior health issues. I have been using products for two weeks. Thus far, I feel 'lighter', I do not have my usual chocolate or sugar cravings. I naturally have given up on fizzy drinks too. Preferring instead savioury, fruits and veg. I have had comments on looking 'leaner' and less puffy! I have greatly reduced the need for constant sugar filled grazing too. I am very impressed! Worth every penny. Thank you.

    Prebiotic

    Posted by Peggy Dye on 26th Aug 2017

    Having heard so much good news about the positive benefits of prebiotics I decided to try this for myself. I have found the inulin powder easy to use, is not distasteful and has the benefits that it has claimed to have. It is affordable too.

    Good Product

    Posted by Julie on 16th Aug 2017

    The product was as advertised and was a good price. The whisk is useful to dissolve powder in water. The delivery was on time and we would re order again, if necessary.
