Wheat-derived arabinoxylan oligosaccharides with bifidogenic properties abolishes metabolic disorders induced by western diet in mice
"Therefore, this is the first study suggesting that wheat bran-derived AXOS is effective to counteract obesity instead of preventing it as previously shown elsewhere."

"In total, these combined study results showed that dietary fibre can decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 19%, and that cereal fibre and insoluble fibre (as found in unprocessed wheat, for example) can lower the risk by 23% and 25%, respectively."

"The study provides additional reasons for physicians to recommend foods, such as prebiotics, which improve the growth and activity of helpful gut bacteria"

"The study, which followed infants who were genetically predisposed to the condition, found that onset for those who developed the disease was preceded by a drop in microbial diversity - including a disproportional decrease in the number of species known to promote health in the gut."
