Prebiotics such as Mannanoligosaccharides, Fructooligosaccharides, and Arabinogalactan serve as food for the beneficial bacteria in the gut. These bacteria support and balance digestive health, acid-base balance, detoxification, and gut-related immune function.
Arabinogalactan, isolated from the bark of the Larch tree, is an immune-modulating form of fiber with positive benefits on digestive function. It has well-documented prebiotic effects on probiotic organisms by acting as a food supply to friendly intestinal bacteria. Like the well-known fructooligosaccharides, Arabinogalactan is considered a prebiotic. Combining Arabinogalactan with Prebiotics and Probiotics provides potent support for the immune system at the site of the gut lymphatic ducts, and can help maintain healthy gut tissue, re-inoculate good microflora, and provides the needed enzymes for proper GI balance.
Glutamine is found in high concentrations in the gastrointestinal tract and provides fuel for immune cells. Your intestinal lining uses glutamine as fuel to create a strong surface for digestion and absorption, to promote a healthy mucosal lining in the intestines, and to promote gastrointestinal integrity. Glutamine is also needed for cellular production and cell growth and assists in the absorption and transport of nutrients within the gastrointestinal tract.
Beta Glucan is a yeast extract that supports immune function, specifically supports NK (natural killer) cell activity, and nutritionally supports the immune response through the Macrophage immune cells.
The active form of this licorice root supports immune viral defenses.
Aloe vera is a rich source of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals. It also contains anthraquinone glycosides, which are plant compounds that support digestion.
Probiotics such as Lactobacillus and Bifido Bacterium help maintain proper gut flora and nourish natural gut bacteria.
Preforpro is a 'PREbiotic FOR PRObiotic' which supports the growth of normal beneficial bacteria in the gut. It is effective in small servings within hours (not days), and it functions in both the small and large intestines. PreforPro prebiotic promotes the growth of the probiotic blend of Bacillus subtilis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus plantarum. These strains support the normal proliferation of beneficial bacteria.
