 Inulin-A New Natural Ingredients to Losing Weight

    Over the years, the number of obese Americans has increased, and in 2010, one-third (34.9%) of American

 adults are too obese. Obesity can cause a series of complications, including heart disease, stroke and type 2 

diabetes, and sometimes even lead to death. Data show that the United States each year for obesity treatment 

of medical expenses has been nearly 150 billion US dollars.

    Dieting and exercise can reduce weight, but many people can not adhere to the implementation of long-term

diet, including weight loss programs. Some people try to lose weight with drugs, fasting and purifying methods;

others lose weight through surgery, but they can cause other problems; some people even use drugs to lose 

weight. In general, the above method is of no use to many people. For decades, all kinds of people are looking

for ways to lose weight.

    US researchers have found that they can lose weight by suppressing appetite rather than by using drugs. 

Scientists use a carbohydrate, a fermented carbohydrate - inulin.

    The researchers first studied the rats with inulin. The researchers divided the mice into two groups, giving 

one of the rats fed a high-fat diet with cellulose. Cellulose is an almost fermented carbohydrate that is 

extracted from the cell walls of plants. Feeding another group of rats is a high-fat diet with inulin. Inulin is 

widely present in plants such as chicory and is a fermented product. Probiotics in the digestive tract can form

 different compounds through inulin, some of which are short chain fatty acid acetate. Compared with mice 

that consume cellulose, edible inulin rats eat less and lose weight less.

    Next, the researchers wondered whether the same results would be produced if the acetate was injected 

into the mouse alone. In order to observe the physiological changes of the mice, mice were injected with 

13C-labeled acetate (acetate was a chemical component produced by the organism), and the researchers 

scanned the brain of the rats. The researchers finally found that some of the acetate gathered in the mouse's 

hypothalamus, especially in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus. And some of the acetate is present in the brain 

of the brain and neuropeptides (some small particles of protein).

    The researchers believe that acetate in the brain of the mouse (or acetate by-product) can play a role in 

suppressing appetite; that is, acetate as a brain signal medium, will not need to eat the brain signal The Eat 

less, weight naturally will not increase.

    According to the plant to learn the bridge to understand, through the food found in some of the ingredients 

to control appetite in order to achieve the effect of weight loss, rather than through the use of drugs to lose 

weight has become a new trend to lose weight.

    The above test is only carried out in mice, in order to know the effect of inulin on the human body, also 

need to conduct further tests. In addition, the inulin is safe, how much of the dose can achieve the effect of 

weight loss, all of which also need more research. If studies have shown that inulin or acetate is really 

effective in reducing body weight, then they will be of great potential to lose weight.

    For now, sticking to diet and exercise is still the most effective way to lose weight. Increased intake of 

carbohydrates fermented by colon microbes can reduce body weight, but the specific mechanism is not yet 

clear. Scientists through the vivo11C-acetate and PET-CT scan found that colon acetate can be through the 

blood-brain barrier, and can be used by the brain. Intraperitoneal acetate can inhibit the excitement of appetite

and hypothalamic neurons. Researchers have found that the function of acetate is related to the activity of 

acetyl-CoA carboxylase and changes in the expression of conventional neurons that inhibit appetite.

    In addition, the researchers found that after increasing the intake of fermented carbohydrates, the levels of 

13C-labeled acetate in the hypothalamus increased, while acetate could increase the circulation of glutamate 

and gamma-aminobutyric acid. All this proves that acetate plays a decisive role in controlling appetite.
