Prebiotic+ can improve the gut and overall health

Boosted metabolism, optimal digestion, and deeper sleep are all benefits of taking Prebiotic+.

Friendly Bacteria

Maintain the proper PH level in your gut resulting in decreased bloating and increased metabolism.

Good bacteria are key to regulating blood sugar and fighting off sickness.

Prebiotic+ For Digestive Health and Metabolism

Prebiotic+™ features a blend of natural prebiotics to encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). Research suggests that the compounds in Prebiotic+™ can improve gut and overall health. 

The benefits may include optimal digestion, increased metabolism, and deeper sleep.†

How it Works:

Pro-biotics are the “good bacteria” that comprise our gut microbiome and are part of a healthy, fully-functioning digestive system.

Pre-biotics are a class of indigestible starchy plant fibers that promote gut and overall health by encouraging the growth of “friendly” gut flora (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). Resistant starches “resist” digestion and pass through the digestive system largely intact until they reach the large intestine (the colon).

There, our gut bacteria ferment these prebiotics into short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate, and butyrate. These fatty acids help maintain proper pH in the gut, regulate blood sugar, increase satiety, and discourage the growth of “unfriendly” bacteria.

Unmodified Potato Starch & Green Banana Flour

In 2004, Nutrition & Metabolism found that “replacement of 5.4% of total dietary carbohydrate with RS significantly increased post­prandial lipid oxidation and therefore could decrease fat accumulation in the long-­term.” [1]

The American Journal for Clinical Nutrition found in 2005 that “dietary supplementation with resistant starch has the potential to improve insulin sensitivity.” [2]

The American Physiological Society found that “interactions between RS and the colonic microflora appear to be of benefit to the host in the short and long term. ” [3]

The results of a study from 2015 published in The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health showed that a single dose of resistant starch from green banana flour not only improved the glucose response after a meal in both lean and overweight individuals, but it improved glucose and insulin levels for 48 hours [4].

InulinFOS

In 2009, the Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry found that Inulin FOS contributes to a wide range of health improvements: “FOS have important beneficial physiological effects such as low carcinogenicity, a prebiotic effect, improved mineral absorption and decreased levels of serum cholesterol.” [5]

The Canadian Journal of Microbiology published a paper finding that “fructooligosaccharides represent a prebiotic fiber that supports the growth of a wide range of probiotic cultures and as such has a potential to improve the successfulness of probiotic treatments” [6]

Inulin­FOS can also improve the pH balance of the digestive system, by creating greater levels of the short chain fatty acid butyrate, according to a paper in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics: “Butyrate concentrations were higher in patients receiving the FOS/fibre ­enriched formula compared to standard formula” [7]

Trehalose

A 2013 study in Autophagy found that trehalose enhances autophagy in motoneurons, thereby slowing the progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease: “At the mechanistic level, trehalose treatment led to a significant upregulation in the expression of key autophagy-­related genes at the mRNA level… Consistent with these changes, trehalose administration enhanced the nuclear translocation of FOXO1, an important transcription factor involved in the activation of autophagy in neurons.” [8]

Current Drug Targets published a paper in 2014 that trehalose has unique neuroprotective properties: “Mounting experimental evidence suggests that trehalose may prevent neurodegenerative disorders by stabilizing proteins and promoting autophagy.” [9]

In a 2005 paper published in Neurobiology of Disease reported that “trehalose, a simple disaccharide, has been shown to be effective in preventing the deactivation of numerous proteins and in protecting cells against stress.” [10]

Ceylon Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been researched extensively over the years and is well known for its anti­inflammatory properties. In 2012, The Journal of Traditional Complementary Medicine published research that found that “after chemical profiling of cinnamon's components, their biological activities including antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, antitumor, anti-hypertension, antilipemic, antidiabetes, gastroprotective and immunomodulatory were reported by many investigators.” [11]

The European Journal of Clinical Investigation noted in 2006 that in people suffering from type 2 diabetes, “subjects with a higher initial plasma glucose level may benefit more from cinnamon intake… The cinnamon extract seems to have a moderate effect in reducing fasting plasma glucose concentrations in diabetic patients with poor glycemic control.” [12]

According to research published in The Proceedings of Nutrition Society’s 2008 publication, “Subjects with the metabolic syndrome who consume an aqueous extract of cinnamon have been shown to have improved fasting blood glucose, systolic blood pressure, percentage body fat and increased lean body mass.” [13


Ingredients

image

With the highest concentration of resistant starch out of any other food-based source, unmodified potato starch in Prebiotic+ is made from premium grade high starch European potatoes by a gentle water and filtration process.

Image

Milled in the United States, our banana flour is made from the pulp of unripe bananas before the sugar content has developed. Raw green banana flour is extremely nutrient dense: it’s high in potassium, vitamins, minerals, and resistant starch.

Image

Naturally found in many different vegetables, InulinFOS consists of short and long chains of fructose molecules that stimulate the growth of beneficial flora in the digestive tract, support digestive health and normalize blood glucose response after a meal. Prebiotic+ features InulinFOS from GMO-free chicory grown in Europe.

Image

Trehalose is a naturally occurring sugar found in mushrooms, seeds, algae, and some drought-enduring desert plants. Unlike sucrose (table sugar), trehalose is only about half as sweet, has a much lower glycemic index, and a slow digestion process. It’s added to Prebiotic+ because of its strong neuroprotective and health-promoting properties.

Also known as “true cinnamon”, ceylon cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity, and support joint health. It’s also rich in antioxidants; just 1 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon has more antioxidants than 8 ounces of pomegranate juice.

Pain is gone!

This has made a HUGE difference my gut issues. I had a constant ache on my left side in my lower intestines. GI doctor said it may be diverticulitis. I was scheduled for a colonoscopy but put it off until I tried this. It took a few weeks and my husband prodding me to stay at it. The first two weeks I had constipation that came and went. CALM helped during that time period. Now I am regular and have NO PAIN. This has helped so much to bring balance and restore my guts after years of antibiotics.

My favorite NATS product

Generally I would rate Ciltep my #1 choice stacked with Acetyl Choline and Dopamine or my new night time stack including GABA and Serotonin which has allowed me to finally experience deeper level of sleep which I have been missing for many years. I recently ordered 3 tubs of Pre-Biotic and have found after about 3 weeks of use an even deeper level of sleep as well as being more regular - TMA - but all good.
