Saponins

These chemicals are glycosides that produce foam when disolved in water. two forms are recognised, steroidal saponins and triterpenoid saponins. Saponins help support the adrenal glands producing hormones to help manage stress response and reduce inflammation. Saponins can also assist in the production of sex hormones.

Many common foods contain saponins including oats, spinach, peanuts and beer
