Pre-Bio RS 300g - Integra Nutritionals

£28.86

Integra Nutritionals PreBio RS is derived from green lady finger bananas.

Green lady finger banana is a prebiotic plant material that has been well researched and found to be rich in naturally-occurring resistant starch, a food source for the microbiota which, in turn break down these starches to product SCFAs for the human host, known to be highly beneficial for intestinal health, in part because they are the preferred energy source for the cells lining the large intestine or colon.

PreBio RS is a prebiotic plant material rich in naturally-occurring resistant starch. Resistant starch is a food source for the microbiota which, in turn break down these starches to produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) for the human host.

The resistant starches and their resultant SCFAs are known to be highly-beneficial for intestinal health, in part because they are the preferred energy source for the cells lining the large intestine or colon.

SCFAs derived from unripe banana have been shown to exert an anti-inflammatory effect on the intestinal lining.(1) SCFAs have also been found to enhance the gut barrier, strengthening the tight junctions between intestinal cells, protecting these cells against invasion from unwanted microbes and food chemicals.(2)

Butyrate is one of the key SCFAs that has been well-researched, not only for its beneficial effects on human digestive function but also for its effects on helping to regulate blood glucose.(3) It has also been shown to promote satiety and thereby help to limit excessive food intake.(3)
