Some iron deficiency symptoms include: severe fatigue and body weakness.

Blood Sugar Improvement & Stability

Inulin is a type of polysaccharide that is treated differently by the body than other starches. When you digest inulin, your body does use it for energy metabolism. Instead inulin helps stabilize and improve blood sugar which is extremely beneficial for diabetics or those who have blood sugar sensitivity. (2)

Inulin also has the ability to  strengthen your immune system because it is an activator of the complement pathway which helps increase defense mechanisms against infections. Inulin also has the ability to neutralize and kill bacteria and viruses which is great for the Winter season when risks of colds and flus are high. (2)
