KOS Organic Inulin Powder
Inulin is an excellent source of prebiotic fiber known to stimulate and nourish vital gut flora.
Scientists call the gut microbiome the next frontier in our quest for health and wellness. Dietary fiber intake is critical to the process. Most Americans fall short of the daily fiber amount experts recommend. Inulin helps by promoting a healthy environment for microflora vital to proper digestion and excretion. It is fermented by bacteria that normalize the colon and is considered a prebiotic.
Friendly Fermentable Fiber
That Full Feeling
Down to the Bone
Because Inulin is not digested by enzymes, it passes through the digestive system without being fully broken down, helping to feed the bacteria (probiotics). It helps the healthy probiotics that make up the microbiome thrive, repopulate and survive.
Inulin is a prebiotic due to its ability to stimulate growth of beneficial bacteria like Bifidobacteria. More good bacteria (probiotics) can help decrease the growth of toxic bacteria that often lead to inflammation and reduced nutrient absorption.
Fiber is the indigestible part of carbohydrates that slows the rate food empties into our stomach. Inulin may control appetite by stimulating appetite-suppressing hormones; increasing feelings of fullness. Maybe we can fool Mother Nature after all.
Calcium is a mineral vital to bone and teeth formation, health and maintenance. Some studies suggest Inulin may aid in its absorption. This may be of particular importance for people with absorption impairment common to osteoporosis and bone disease.
Moving Right Along...
Fermentation of Inulin in the colon stimulates bacterial growth - known as probiotics - which can significantly decrease harmful yeast, parasites and bacterial species that trigger inflammation.View research
Prebiotics support digestive health
Good digestion requires properly balanced prebiotics and probiotics. As an excellent source of prebiotics, Inulin can facilitate the process and “move” us closer to our daily recommended fiber intake.View research
A randomized control trial in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that supplementation with 8 grams of Inulin reduced appetite and overall calorie intake in overweight and obese children.View research
Digestive health is one of the serious issues of our times. Constipation has become pandemic, our "gut flora" needs relief and repair and digestion and elimination is not the smooth and satisfying process it should be. Why is this? We are not getting nearly enough fiber in our diets. Fiber is essential to all facets of GI tract well-being. Adding Inulin to your daily diet is an effective way to get things moving in the right direction.

This powder doesn't have much of a taste when you mix it with something flavorful. I can not imagine just mixing it with water, or almond milk, or something simple. When alone it taste like plastic. Haven't noticed much difference in my physical being, but it has only been a couple weeks of use. The top of the seal was punctured so there was powder all inside the lid when I first opened it.
