Effect of Inulin on growth of normal flora

The quantitative and qualitative changes in normal intestinal microflora, violations of its antagonistic functions and other biological properties, as well as the reproduction of opportunistic microorganisms, which are absent in normal biocenosis or are its insignificant part, lead to intestinal dysbacteriosis.(1)

According to results of double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, it was shown that taking Inulin contributes to restoration in native normal flora of the intestines.(2)
