Health Benefits at a Glance:
FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable is a prebiotic fiber supplement in an easy-to-eat chewable tablet form. It provides fuel for a kind of good bacteria in your GI tract called bifidobacteria. FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable stimulates the growth of these beneficial microorganisms by supplying prebiotics (xylooligosaccharides). Bifidobacteria use this type of prebiotic as fuel. Thus, this prebiotic fiber supplement can enhance the effectiveness of beneficial bacteria and support a balanced gastrointestinal tract.
Why it Works:
Probiotic bacteria are excellent at promoting a healthy digestive environment. In order to work, the probiotics also need to have fuel in the first place. The FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable formula contains scientifically validated PreticX™ prebiotic fiber which helps probiotics thrive. PreticX™ contains 70% xylooligosaccharides which can help optimize the growth potential of beneficial bifidobacteria .
Bifidobacteria occur naturally in the gastrointestinal tract. They are beneficial to the digestive system because they help metabolize the dietary carbohydrates that the body itself is unable to digest. Moreover, bifidobacterial can promote health by providing critical energy for the cells in the colon lining, and by modulating specific components in the immune system [2, 3].
Although bifidobacterial occur naturally in the human gastrointestinal tract, they tend to be most abundant in younger people. They also decrease rapidly with progressing age.
A good way to address this issue is to take a prebiotic supplement, which provides fuel for probiotics. The xylooligosaccharides in this prebiotic fiber supplement are an ideal prebiotic source. At a low dose, they can support the growth of bifidobacteria.
Moreover, the prebiotic in FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable is derived from non-GMO corn. Furthermore, FLORASSIST® Prebiotic Chewable tablets come with a delicious strawberry flavor. Finally, its chewable tablet format makes them easy to consume.
The Science Behind the Product:
Many prebiotics require very large doses for full effect, but too many prebiotics in your system may cause digestive issues such as bloating and other types of gastrointestinal discomfort . By having a low dose of xylooligosaccharides, one will have a lower risk of developing these gastrointestinal issues as a result of prebiotic supplementation.
