Inulin is a type of prebiotic. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in the gut, allowing them to multiply and exert their health benefits. BiotaGen contains chicory-derived inulin, known for its ability to increase populations of Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, and Eubacterium. The latter is an important species that lives in the bowel with antimicrobial properties. By supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria, the number of undesirable bacteria declines.
Arabinogalactan, derived from the Western Larch tree, is a highly soluble dietary fiber that enhances immune function by increasing the number of bacteria fighting white blood cells. It also provides a source of fuel for the Lactobacillus species. Arabinogalactan is broken down into smaller compounds called short-chain fatty acids (acetate, butyrate, and propionate) which can strengthen the gut barrier, fight inflammation and enhance immunity.
BiotaGen contains a trio of prebiotic fibres which promote healthy digestion, specifically relieving constipation, while reducing inflammation of the gut and supporting the immune system. Prebiotics act as food for probiotic bacteria, allowing the beneficial bacteria in the gut to multiply. Biotagen is the ideal supplement to be taken alongside a probiotic.
