Adding to a healthy digestion

A good digestion is vital for a healthy life as it helps our body to absorb all the nutrients it needs to run smoothly.
BENEO offers functional dietary fibres which help to improve digestive health, support weight management and enhance calcium absorption for bone health. 
While functional fibres occur in vegetables such as artichoke, asparagus, leek, onion and garlic, chicory root is a particularly rich source for these substances.
That’s why BENEO gently extracts its functional fibre range from chicory root. Besides the versatile and well known Inulin types, there is also Oligofructose which is derived from Inulin through enzymatic breakdown.  Synergy1 however is an inulin enriched with oligofructose and has shown positive effects on calcium absorption for bone health.
