“delicious intestinal activity ♪ with apples”
One of the typical ingredients of apples is dietary fiber.
Dietary fiber can be expected to have the effect of adjusting the intestinal environment.
Intestinal activity with dietary fiber
Apples contain both water-soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which is expected to have the effect of regulating bowel movements.
It is also expected to have different effects on each dietary fiber.
Pectin, a water-soluble dietary fiber abundant in apples, has the property of becoming a gel by adding acid and sugar together. It is the function of pectin that jam made by boiling down and adding acid and sugar becomes a thick gel. Pectin is expected to have the effect of preventing lifestyle-related diseases such as suppressing the rise in blood sugar level and lowering cholesterol levels, but it is also expected to have the effect of increasing good bacteria by feeding good bacteria.
The insoluble dietary fiber “cellulose” is a component of the cell wall, and the crispy texture of apples is created because it contains cellulose. It adsorbs harmful substances in the intestines such as carcinogens and promotes the excretion of stool. It is also effective in preventing constipation because it is also used as a material for stool. Insoluble pectin is more abundant in immature fruits, which, as they ripen, turn into water-soluble.
Both water-soluble dietary fiber and insoluble dietary fiber are ingredients that you want to take.
Please wait for a while until the next release of “(2) Let’s increase good bacteria with oligosaccharides”
