Fructalyn® and Essential Oils
Fructalyn® products, VIM® and Fre®, can be used together with essential oils to improve nutrition and overall health. Fructalyn® products are recommended to use together with essential oils for the Natural Weight Management protocol on protocolled.com. Other protocols are being researched for conditions related to gut health and glycemic control.
Natural Low Calorie Sweeteners What is the difference - Fre® versus VIM®?
Fructalyn® products contain fructan fibers combined with natural low calorie sweeteners, xylitol and erythritol. These natural sugar alcohols are found in fruits and vegetables, including strawberries, rasperries, watermelon, grapes, cauliflower, etc. Xylitol, found in VIM®, is a natural prebiotic which supports healthy gut flora, similar to the fructan fibers. Erythritol, sweet like xylitol, has an even lower glycemic index and is found in Fre®. VIM® and Fre® combined well with fruit desserts, given a sweet, sustainable energy that is also pleasurable.
Fructalyn® Prebiotic Fructan Fibers
Fructalyn® products contain Fructan fibers, also commonly known as Inulin, which is a natural fiber from plant sources including Chicory root and Jerusalem Artichoke (see picture to the left). Life Energy Foods LLC has patented the process of isolating these fibers and combining them with natural sweeteners into easy-to-use soluble granules. Fructan fibers are a natural prebiotic, or food for the healthy bacteria, which supports gut health and digestion in a safe and natural way.
