Many people don’t know the benefits of sunchokes.

Health Benefits of Sunchokes


Sunchokes are packed with iron. They have three times more iron than the same serving of broccoli. (1) Some of the benefits of iron include hemoglobin formation, proper muscle function, brain function, helps with restless leg syndrome, helps regulate body temperature, oxygen carrier and much more. 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)

Immune System Booster

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)

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
