Dr. Mercola's Organic Resistant Starch Complex is a dietary supplement that provides the body with a type of starch that is resistant to digestion. This resistant starch reaches the large intestine and is fermented by gut bacteria, producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These SCFAs have a number of beneficial effects, including:
Supporting optimal immune function. SCFAs help to regulate the immune system, promoting a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut. This can help to protect against infection and inflammation.
Promoting cellular energy production. SCFAs are a source of energy for cells, and they may help to improve insulin sensitivity. This can help to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Protecting heart health. SCFAs can help to lower cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation in the arteries. This can help to protect against heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy gut. SCFAs help to keep the gut lining healthy and can help to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. This can help to improve digestion and overall gut health.
