What is Paleo Starch?
Paleo Starch contains two forms of resistant starch (RS) type II: organic green banana flour and organic potato starch powder. RS is a type of starch that is resistant to digestion, as enzymes in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract are ineffective against it. Once RS reaches the large intestine, it is fermented into short-chain fatty acids, which are used as fuel for both beneficial microbes and the cells of the intestinal lining.
What are the benefits of Paleo Starch?
Paleo Starch benefits GI health through its ability to support microbial balance and proper intestinal permeability and integrity. Additionally, this formula may help support optimal blood sugar and insulin metabolism, normal appetite, and cardiovascular health.*

When should I take it?
