Jerusalem artichokes contain plenty of inulin, a type of prebiotic fiber that has been credited with a number of health benefits due to its medicinal properties. Many of these health effects can be attributed to the ability of inulin to stimulate the growth of bifidobacteria. Naturally present in the large intestine, bifidobacteria fight harmful bacteria in the intestines, prevent constipation, and give the immune system a boost. Furthermore, evidence indicates that bifidobacteria help reduce intestinal concentrations of certain carcinogenic enzymes. 1 teaspoon of JERUSALEM ARTICHOKES powder = 1 fresh Jerusalem artichoke. HOW TO USE: Use powder 1 teaspoon in a glass of water in the morning before a meal.
