Acacia Fiber Acacia Fiber

Now Foods Acacia Fiber is a dietary foodstuff which contains natural, organic, soluble fibre produced from the acacia tree juice. It is perfect even for people with sensitive stomach or irritable bowel syndrome. It is gentle, does not irritate the digestive system, and due to minimal fermentation it does not cause bloating or gas.

Acacia fibre regulates digestive process, promotes health of intestines and improves the microflora of the digestive tract. Used regularly, it can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart diseases and hypertension.

Acacia Fiber (acacia gum, gum arabic, acacia fibre) is a product made from the African tree resin of Acacia seyal and Acacia senegal, widely used in food and cosmetics industry. It is an excellent source of soluble fibre. Chemically, it is a multi-molecular carbohydrate of a very low calorific value, partially broken down in the large intestine.

Gum arabic contains arabinogalactans, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides and glycoproteins. Unlike other sources of fibre, it has a very high food tolerance, works incredibly smoothly and does not cause bloating. It also does not hinder mineral absorption, which is a common problem while using insoluble fibre.

Support for the digestive system functions
Acacia fibre has a significant influence on the regulation of digestion process. After solving in water, it creates a gel-like consistency and is metabolised by bacteria in colon. It moves through the entire gastrointestinal tract, absorbs water and increases stool volume. By coating the stool with a jelly-like gel, it gives it the appropriate slip, binds flatulence and facilitates regular stool frequency.

A diet rich in a good source of dietary fibre prevents constipation and reduces pain accompanying haemorrhoids. Numerous studies demonstrate also the relationship between too little dietary fibre intake and an increased incidence of diverticulitis. Acacia fibre is very gentle, does not irritate the lining of the digestive tract and can be used even in the irritable bowel syndrome.

Appetite and adipose tissue reduction
Fibre supports the maintenance of the proper body weight and helps you to lose extra pounds. It has a high water absorption capacity; it swells in the stomach causing a feeling of fullness and satiety.

It slows down food transport through the digestive tract, thus affecting the release of intestinal hormones associated with the centre of hunger and satiety (ghrelin, polypeptide and glucagon-like peptide). Randomized clinical studies have shown that people supplementing fibre for 21 days were able to keep a much longer pause between meals without feeling hungry already at day 5 when compared to those who took the placebo. Thanks to that they were able to effectively and smoothly reduce their calorie intake, which resulted in weight loss.

Fibre also absorbs part of the fat from food (estimated from 30 to 180 kcal per day), which also contributes to a decrease in weight.

Prebiotic properties
Acacia fibre shows clinically proven prebiotic properties. Prebiotics are insoluble substances contained in food which have a positive influence on the body system by stimulating the growth and activity of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Studies have demonstrated that gum arabic contributes especially to the growth of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus strains, and at the same time inhibits the growth of pathogenic flora.

The proper intestinal flora results not only in the optimal functioning of the digestive system. It is also responsible for nutrient absorption, nourishing the body system and improvement in immunity. Mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract is the first line of protection of the body system against harmful factors and plays an important role in the proper immune response.

Stimulation of the production of short-chain fatty acids
In the process of acacia fibre fermentation we receive short chain fatty acids: butyric acid, propionic acid and acetic acid. They take part in numerous important physiological processes. The most important is the role of butyric acid, which is the main nutrient for epithelial cells in colon. It protects the intestinal mucosa against bacterial infections and irritation.

Short chain fatty acids improve the immunity of the organism. They stimulate the production of antibodies, leukocytes and cytokines as well as increase the activity of natural killer cells (NK cells), which are the most important substances in the immune system. They also help to regulate sodium absorption and increase the absorption of calcium and other minerals.

Prevention of diabetes and heart diseases
Acacia fibre can contribute to the reduction in the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Soluble fibre binds bile acids in the intestines, so that it prevents them from getting into the body system. It reduces the level of low density lipoproteins (LDL), which are the primary cause of arteriosclerosis and emboli in the arteries of blood vessels.

Studies suggest that acacia fibre may play a beneficial role in reducing the concentration of C-reactive protein and lowering the level of apolipoproteins, two major biomarkers of heart diseases.

There are many theories indicating the relationship between the consumption of dietary fibre and type 2 diabetes. Acacia fibre slows down the absorption of sugars by protecting them from hydrolytic enzymes. It reduces the secretion of insulin into the bloodstream and allows to maintain a stable blood glucose levels.

Body system detoxification
The proper stool frequency is very important for the exertion of metabolism by-products from the body system. Acacia fibre perfectly regulates digestion which supports the detoxification of the body system.

Thanks to the presence of free carboxylic groups, fibre shows ion-exchange properties. It effectively binds some chemical substances (toxins and some heavy metals contained in contaminated food), preventing their absorption in the digestive tract.

Dietary fibre is associated mainly with the process of digestion, but the spectrum of its health promoting properties is far wider. Supplementing the diet with a good source of natural fibre is an essential element of health care. The product Acacia Fiber is a perfect choice. It contains organic, soluble fibre, which is known for its gentle, but effective action. It can be used even by people with a sensitive stomach or digestive system disorders.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.

 

Carbohydrates

Information

Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used
residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
