Inulin is an amazing prebiotic, a soluble completely natural fibre found in many plants and is really good for gut health.It is made up of a string of what is called fructose molecules, which look like a string of pearls. These pearls are linked in a chain by links that the gut cannot digest and because of this they move slowly through the gut and absorb water, which then turns into a gel that has a snow ball effect and collects fat particles on its journey through the digestive system expelling fat out of your body. Inulin really helps the formation of healthy stools. Not only that but Inulin increases the number of good bacteria in your gut by acting as their food source.
