Helianthus

Also Known As:

Jerusalem Artichoke

Uses:

  • Weight Control
  • Appetite Control
  • Syndrome X (blood sugar imbalances)

Description

Helianthus is native to North America and is a member of the sunflower family, sharing their ability to swivel around to follow the path of the sun.

How It Works

Helianthus slows down the rate at which sugars are broken down in the body. This means that your food will give you energy for a longer period of time, slowing down hunger pangs. Better metabolism of sugars also balances out swings in blood sugar levels, reducing sugar cravings that come when blood sugar levels drop.
Helianthus contains plant sugars that feed friendly bacteria in the gut, and these bacteria break down undigested food particles. As Helianthus also contains water soluble plant fibres, it helps to bulk up waste matters travelling through the colon and thus improves bowel regularity.
