This is a masterful blend based on Psyllium, the amazing natural fiber with significantly higher soluble fiber than even Oat Bran. Even further- 50% of the Psyllium is whole (not powdered) husk fiber for maximum cleansing and 50% is whole powdered psyllium seed for maximum bulking. Natural soluble Apple Fiber is also added to round out the fiber complex. The formula contains 194 million colony forming units (CFU) per serving of Lactobacilli and 9 other complementing strains of friendly bacteria (flora). This complex of milk-free intestinal flora is ideal to assure maximum benefit under a variety of conditions. It aids in digestion, intestinal tone, and oxygenation and especially helps to assure healthy flora balance. What is especially unique about this combination of Fiber and Flora is that the non digestible Fiber acts as a carrier to assure the safe arrival of the precious Flora past the harsh digestive tract to the lower bowel where it can flourish. In addition, as soluble fiber reaches the large intestine, the prebiotic fibers begin to ferment and y8ield short chain fatty acids, which affect the function of many regulatory systems in the body. Prebiotics benefit the body by boosting production of the beneficial cultures that naturally reside in the digestive tract and help aid digestion. These beneficial cultures help support the natural healthy bacterial balance of the intestines, increase good gut flora, and reduce occasional indigestion. You may expect a wide spectrum of nutritional benefits.
