PREBIO+ is composed of FOS, GOS, tyndallised lactic ferments, Inulin and nucleotides, with an aim to maintaining a healthy and balanced bacterial intestinal flora. Lately referred to as the GUT or second brain, our intestine plays a fundamental role in the absorption of nutrients and in our well-being. Linked with a multitude of conditions, both physical and psychical in nature, defined by its vast surface, our GUT is colonised by copious micro-organisms. The composition of PREBIO+ has been specifically designed to promote the growth and proliferation of beneficial micro-organisms and to maintain a balance with harmful ones, necessary in our intestine.
FOS (Fructo-oligo-saccharides) have a pre-biotic function. This means that, although they are not absorbed by the body, they can support the vitality and functionality of the microbiota. Once ingested, they reach the caecum of the colon where they selectively stimulate the metabolic growth and activity of the beneficial strains. Basically, the FOS feed the probiotic bacteria which as a result are able to grow and reproduce. In addition to the prebiotic function, they also provide mechanical action due to their fibrous nature. FOS are obtained through the hydrolysis of a soluble fibre, Inulin. This also carries out a prebiotic function, aids digestion and regulates intestinal function. To be specific, it increases the percentage of Bifido bacteria, decreasing the density of harmful bacteria. A further important action is its ability to improve calcium absorption.
PREBIO+ contains another important prebiotic component, namely GOS (gluco-oligo-saccharides) of the Bioecolians® (GOSa) brand. Not forgetting the importance of tyndallised lactic ferments, which undergo heat treatment to make them more resistant to acids, gastric juices and digestive enzymes. They are basically inactivated without altering their functional biological properties. Therefore they are still able to stimulate immune responses, eliminate attacking micro-organisms, degenerated cells and toxic substances, prevent the adherence of harmful bacteria and promote the selective growth of already present Lactobacilli. The formula is then completed with Ribocare® brand nucleotides, and their immunostimulating and tissue regenerating actions. In fact, several studies have proven their capacity to shorten recovery times for intestinal lesions and improve the healing of intestinal ulcers. This is a very important factor both in a preventive environment and in the presence of pre-existing damage.
