Fibersol®-2 Health Benefits
Fibersol®-2, digestion resistant maltodextrin, is a low viscosity soluble dietary fiber that clinical research has indicated helps support or maintain intestinal regularity. Clinical studies show that Fibersol®-2 helps to relieve occasional constipation and select studies show that it improves stool consistency.
Studies show that, when taken with a meal, Fibersol®-2, digestion resistant maltodextrin, may attenuate the rise in serum glucose following the meal. Fibersol®-2 has the potential to reduce peak postprandial blood glucose and insulin levels that are within the normal range in healthy individuals. In addition, studies show that Fibersol®-2 does not alter healthy, steady-state blood glucose or insulin levels.
Data also suggest that, when taken with a meal or food, Fibersol®-2, digestion resistant maltodextrin, may attenuate the rise in serum triglycerides following the meal and that it may help retain healthy serum triglyceride levels.
Fibersol-2 has been demonstrated to delay post-meal hunger and has been shown to increase specific satiety hormones PYY and GLP-1. PYY and GLP-1 are satiety hormones released from the gut that help tell your brain that you are full. In a clinical study, people who consumed Fibersol® -2 felt fuller longer than those that didn’t.
