Innovative natural prebiotic, with added digestive enzymes, designed to promote intestinal eubiosis
Based on prebiotic fibres (SUNFIBER®) and Baobab, Microbiotin Fibra is the innovative natural prebiotic with added digestive enzymes designed to promote intestinal eubiosis, increase the biodiversity of the microbiota, and inhibit the proliferation of excessive anaerobic bacteria that can cause putrefactive fermentation, without the undesirable side effects – such as swelling or excessive fermentation – often caused by common dietary fibres.
Microbiotin Fibra contains partially hydrolyzed Guar seed extract (PHGG), with a high solubility and prebiotic index, as well as Baobab fruit powder, alpha and beta galactosidase and Caraway extract with antispasmodic action. The use of Microbiotin Fibra helps to improve the robustness and plasticity of the microbiota, an “organ” involved in the response of the immune system, it promotes the proper assimilation of nutrients and increases the sense of satiety, maintains the integrity of the intestinal mucosa and regulates chronic low-grade inflammation.
The product is indicated for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with diarrhoea or constipation, for intestinal dysbiosis, abdominal swelling and digestive problems, LOW FODMAP diets or diets with low fibre content, intolerance to lactose, legumes, cruciferous vegetables and complex carbohydrates, and for metabolic syndrome when weight loss is required.
