All Things Inulin.
Inulin...What is it? Why do I incorporate it into my recipes and coffee? What brand do I recommend?
🌸WHAT IS INULIN? Inulin is a soluble fiber supplement, often derived from Jerusalem artichoke or chicory root. Inulin exists in a variety of different whole foods, such as asparagus, artichokes, chicory root, sweet potatoes, and more. . ⚡️WHY DO I ADD INULIN TO MY RECIPES AND COFFEE? There is a ton of literature demonstrating the benefits of incorporating fiber into your diet (que @tanyazuckerbrot 🥰), including decreased cholesterol, decreased blood pressure, and FAT LOSS. . 🌼WHY IS INCREASED FIBER CORRELATED TO FAT LOSS? In part....Fiber has a thermogenic effect, which means that when your body tries to digest it, your metabolism revs up (think BMR & longevity). Fiber adds bulk to food, keeping you full for longer and innately leading to a caloric deficit. Further, fiber soaks up fat and calories from other foods you eat with it and ushers it out of the body. . 🌱WHY INULIN OVER ANOTHER FORM OF FIBER? Inulin is a form of fiber that has ALL of the above mentioned benefits, AND it is a soluble fiber that has been shown to promote growth of healthy gut bacteria. This is important to aid in digestion and to promote healthy and glowing skin. Not all fibers are created equally, and a form of fiber that works for me may not work for you! So I suggest you try out fibers, or use a variety of forms as I do! If you are curious about Inulin, you can slowly incorporate it into you diet. 💓WHAT BRAND OF INULIN DO I RECOMMEND? I recommend @simplygangsterchic , as I trust that they are authentic in their product sourcing and it doesnt hurt that the packaging is super chic!
