Weight loss Mechanism of Resistant Dextrin
1. Resistant dextrin has gradually become a key research object in the food industry.
Resistant dextrin, also known as indigestible dextrin, is a low-calorie food material. Because of its various physiological functions of dietary fiber, it has gradually become a key research object in the food processing industry in recent years.
2. Weight loss mechanism of resistant dextrin
1) Control blood sugar and regulate blood lipids
Resistant dextrin can not only form a gel to prevent the diffusion of sugars in the body, on the other hand, it reduces the body's demand for insulin by reducing the sensitivity of peripheral nerve tissue to insulin, and ultimately inhibits the rise of blood sugar and insulin. Moreover, after the body continuously ingests resistant dextrin, the resistant dextrin can absorb bile acids, fats and other substances, which reduces the body's absorption rate of them, thereby reducing the cholesterol content in blood, aorta and other tissues, and improving lipid metabolism level.
2) Adjust intestinal environment
Resistant dextrin can not be absorbed easily after entering the small intestine, and it can directly enter the large intestine. Promote the proliferation of the beneficial bacteria Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus casei in the large intestine; The beneficial bacteria will ferment sugars and produce short-chain fatty acids in the large intestine. The proliferation of the beneficial bacteria in the intestine maintains a stable and balanced ecology in the intestine. The beneficial bacteria release nutrients that are beneficial to the human body during the metabolic process to enhance immunity and intestinal function. The short-chain fatty acids produced can inhibit the growth and reproduction of cancer cells.
3) Weight control and obesity prevention
After the resistant dextrin absorbs water and expands in the gastrointestinal tract, its volume can increase by 10-15 times. This feature can enhance the body's sense of fullness after ingestion, which in turn affects appetite and reduces carbon water intake.
Another reason why resistant dextrin has the effects of weight control and obesity prevention is that resistant dextrin is a high-fiber food, which usually means that these foods show a lower GI value after entering the body. A low-GI diet can reduce body fat content, so as to loss weight. This works well especially in women.
Therefore, resistant dextrin has a certain effect on weight control and obesity reduction.
