Protexin Lepicol Prebiotics 180g
The health benefits of fibre are well known, and the current European recommendation for the daily intake of fibre is 25g - something that many of us lack with the modern diet. Therefore, providing high quality fibre to supplement the diet will bring many digestive advantages.
The main fibre source within Lepicol products is Psyllium husk (Plantago ovata forsk). Psyllium is a great fibre as it is able to normalise stool size by being water retentive and, at the same time, forms a soft gel which eases the stool along the lower digestive tract ready for evacuation. Psyllium has the advantage of being much gentler than some common fibres (such as wheat or bran), many of which could irritate a sensitive bowel.
Lepicol contains five strains of live bacteria. Your digestive tract is home to trillions of gut bacteria that aid in digestion, help prevent a pathogenic bacteria over-growth as well as having an impact on your immune system. Keeping a balanced gut microflora helps to ensure that the environment in your digestive tract is stable and goes a long way to aid in your health well-being.
Live bacteria strains:
Lactobacillus rhamnosus PXN 54
Bifidobacterium bifidum PXN 23
Lactobacillus acidophilus PXN 35
Lactobacillus plantarum PXN 47
Lactobacillus bulgaricus PXN 39
Strength: Minimum of 120 million CFU/g (1.2 x 108 CFU/g), equivalent to 600 million CFU/5g dose (6.0 x 108 CFU/5g).
Inulin is a fibre that is sourced from chicory root. Inulin is not broken down by the body - it is fermented by the live bacteria in the gut to support the growth of live bacteria.
