Each strawberry-flavored tablet of FLORASSIST� Prebiotic Chewable contains a scientifically validated dose of PreticX� prebiotic fiber, which contains 70% xylooligosaccharides to optimize growth potential of beneficial bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria occur naturally in the human gastrointestinal tract.
The benefits of Bifidobacteria
These tiny organisms pack a powerful punch for better health. They benefit not only our digestive tracts but our whole body. And they produce specialized compounds associated with healthy metabolism and even longevity.1
Bifidobacteria metabolize important types of dietary carbohydrates. They also provide essential fuel to cells of the digestive tract and more.2,3 But bifidobacteria decrease in number as we age.4
One popular way to support bifidobacteria is to supplement with probiotics. But it is also important to make sure that these probiotics have an adequate prebiotic food source.
Not all prebiotics are the same
“Overdoing” prebiotics can be too much of a good thing. Most commercial prebiotics require large doses to provide the optimal conditions for GI colonization. Unfortunately, this can lead to unpleasant bloating, flatulence and general GI discomfort.2
FLORASSIST� Prebiotic Chewable is formulated with a scientifically validated, smaller dose of PreticX� prebiotic fiber, which contains 70% xylooligosaccharides. These xylooligosaccharides are ideal prebiotics because they are capable of optimizing the growth potential of gut bifidobacteria, and can do so in relatively low doses.3,4 The less actual prebiotic fiber you have to take, the less chance of gastrointestinal upset. This highly purified prebiotic is derived from non-GMO corn cob.
