Resistant Starches Shown to Have Significant Health Benefits

Resistant Starches Shown to Have Significant Health Benefits 

Resistant starches are starches that resist breakdown in the digestive tract and do not get absorbed by the intestine.

In addition to offering various health benefits, they can also help you reduce your caloric intake because by not being digested quickly by your body, they help maintain a feeling of fullness.

Researchers have identified a number of health benefits of resistant starches listed below:

  • Associated with more mineral absorption, especially calcium and magnesium
  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • Associated with lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Promotes “good” bacteria, and suppresses “bad” bacteria and their toxic products
  • Promotes bowel regularity
  • Associated with less fat storage after that meal 

Some food sources of resistant starches are beans, whole intact grains, cold potatoes, oatmeal and bananas.  

Since resistant starches offer significant health benefits and can also make you feel full, you might want to consider making them a regular part of your diet. 

Have a healthy day,
