Quick Facts On Using Acacia Gum As A Prebiotic.
“Acacia fiber is a highly soluble fiber which is sourced from the Acacia tree sap. The acacia mostly grows in Africa and some parts of India and Pakistan. The acacia fiber is also referred to as acacia gum or gum arabic. Because of its high soluble-fiber content, acacia fiber is commonly consumed as dietary fiber supplement. In the food industry, gum arabic is used as a thickening agent or an emulsifier.” KetoVale
“Prebiotic fiber is a type of carbohydrate that we as humans do not digest. That said, our gut bacteria thrive on prebiotic fiber, as it allows them to reproduce, and enhances their ability to make various products that are so important for our health. Much of the work on prebiotic fiber has been done using the animal model, typically mice, in which administration of prebiotic fiber has been shown to have dramatic and positive effects, upon the gut bacteria. Beyond that, positive metabolic effects are seen as well. ” David Perlmutter MD.
For people with sensitive guts who are prone to gas and bloating, acacia gum fiber is well-tolerated, even at high doses.
“Acacia gum contains water-soluble dietary fibers (WSDF) that are not only good fiber for your diet but also helpful in keeping your cholesterol under control. One study showed that taking 15 grams of acacia gum in liquid form every day helped manage the concentration of plasma cholesterols in blood. Although published in 1992, this is the most comprehensive study on the effects of acacia gum on the blood to date.” Health Line.
“As an excellent source of soluble fiber, acacia helps you feel full so you aren’t tempted to reach for unhealthy snacks in an effort to curb cravings. In fact, by absorbing water in the intestine and stomach to form a gel, acacia fiber can keep you feeling satiated until your next meal. And, acacia fiber supports glucose absorption into the bloodstream, helping to fend off rapid influxes of insulin that can lead to weight management issues.” Hyperbiotics
Acacia gum fiber also supports growth of beneficial gut bacteria.
