Prebiotics play a crucial role in maintaining gut health by serving as nourishment for good gut bacteria...
Prebiotics play a crucial role in maintaining gut health by serving as nourishment for good gut bacteria. These non-digestible dietary fibers selectively promote the growth and activity of bacteria like Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus. Numerous scientific studies, including the groundbreaking research by Roberfroid in 1995, consistently demonstrate how prebiotics modulate the composition and diversity of the gut microbiota.¹
A balanced gut microbiota offers a wide range of health benefits, including improved digestion, enhanced nutrient absorption, strengthened immune function, and decreased risk of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease.² Prebiotics are also important for stimulating the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), such as butyrate, which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reinforce the gut barrier.³
Our science-backed prebiotics:
- Psyllium Husk: A soluble and insoluble fiber that moves through the digestive tract sweeping out bad bacteria and toxins to promote better nutrient absorption and overall digestive wellness. Psyllium Husk is an excellent source of fiber that helps mitigate fiber deficiency without causing gas, bloating or GI discomfort.
- PHGG (partially hydrolyzed guar gum): An all-natural, completely soluble fiber that comes from guar beans. Unlike many forms of fiber, PHGG is partially hydrolyzed, allowing for ease of use when mixing into liquid and ease of digestion - which helps mitigate bloating, cramping and gas.
- Solnul™ (resistant potato starch): A prebiotic resistant starch (R2) that supports microbiome balance, digestion and overall gut health. This clinically studied ingredient has been proven to increase the microbiome's production of Bifidobacterium, an important probiotic for digestive wellness, and significantly increase Akkermansia muciniphila, an important bacteria for improving gut/barrier function and permeability of the gut lining, or leaky gut.
- Pomma+® (pomegranate polyphenols): An extract derived from pomegranates that act as a prebiotic in the gut, supporting the growth of short-chain fatty acids and good bacteria while improving gut imbalances caused by bad bacteria overgrowth.
