The gut microbiome is an essential contributor to both gastrointestinal and general health. BioMaintenance™ Prebiotic + Fiber keeps your microbiome happy by promoting beneficial forms of bacteria. The synergistic effects of prebiotics and fiber in this product equal a wide array of benefits. A greater sense of satiety and positive effects on glycemic response can support weight management. Gastrointestinal effects may include increased regularity, improved nutritional absorption and gut cellular health support. A healthful microbiome also assists in balancing immune function and inflammation status.

Description: The gut microbiome is an essential contributor to both gastrointestinal and general health. BioMaintenanceTM Prebiotic + Fiber supplement is an excellent option for nourishing your healthy microbiome. In only 12 calories and 6 grams of total carbohydrates, this supplement is jam-packed with 5 grams of dietary fiber, isomalto-oligosaccharides, alpha galacto-oligosaccharides, xylo-oligosaccharides, and fructo-oligosaccharides. The synergistic effects of prebiotics and fiber in this product equal a wide array of benefits; including a greater sense of satiety, positive effects on glycemic response to support weight management, and factors that promote beneficial microflora in the gut. Gastrointestinal effects may include increased regularity, improved nutritional absorption, and gut cellular health support. A healthful microbiome also assists in balancing immune function and inflammation status.

Uses: Prebiotics are also known as “oligosaccharides” or small starch molecules (mostly fructans and galactans) that behave similarly to other forms of fiber. As with many high-fiber foods, the human gastrointestinal system cannot digest or absorb much nutrition from prebiotics alone. However, once fermented by anaerobic bacteria in the large intestine, prebiotics cause beneficial change to the composition and activity of the gut microflora, allowing for improved digestion, higher immune function, better hormonal balance, reduced stress response, lower risk for obesity and weight gain, healthier cholesterol levels, and reduced inflammation.

Probiotic microorganisms ferment prebiotic fiber producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) such as butyric acid, which is known to support the integrity of the intestinal lining. SCFAs are metabolized in the liver, helping to regulate electrolyte levels in the body to improve digestion and support regularity of bowel movements. SCFAs also help to stabilize blood glucose levels and decrease cholesterol synthesis. The process of fermentation lowers pH in the gut, which allows for an increase absorption of dietary minerals, stimulates immune function and further protects the bowels from harmful bacteria and other pathogens.

By fueling the beneficial gut bacteria, prebiotics have been associated with biomarkers of improved immunity, increased absorption of essential nutrients, and reduced inflammation, which is considered to be the root cause of many chronic diseases. Additionally, it has been documented that prebiotic consumption plays a role in both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. They also have a reducing effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels and an upregulating effect on satiety hormones. These benefits, along with effects on blood sugar regulation, make prebiotics an excellent supplement to add to a weight control regimen.
 

Isomalto-oligosaccharide is a naturally occurring, plant-based, dietary fiber. It is prebiotic, soluble, and low on the glycemic index. “Soluble fiber” means it dissolves in water as opposed to “insoluble fiber” which does not. Soluble fiber forms a gel like consistency in the stomach that slows stomach emptying, allowing the body to feel satiated for a longer period of time (yet another reason why fiber is so important to weight management). Soluble fiber also helps to reduce cholesterol absorption.

Derived from legumes, α-galacto-oligosaccharides (α-GOSs) are another variety of prebiotic, soluble fibers. They may be effective for appetite regulation, as fermentation of these prebiotics by microbes promotes the secretion of gut peptides that are known to affect both appetite and food intake control.

Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) can be found naturally in bamboo shoots, fruits, vegetables, milk, and honey. Fermentation of XOS leads to acidification of the colonic contents and the formation of SCFAs that serve as fuel for the function of different tissues, regulating cellular processes. XOS supplementation has been shown to significantly decrease the abundance of 3 different harmful bacteria species associated with pre-diabetes in both healthy and pre-diabetic patients. Supplementation with XOS was also found to increase the abundance of beneficial bacterial species, Blautia hydrogneotrophica.

Asparagus, sugar beet, garlic, chicory, onion, Jerusalem artichoke, wheat, honey, banana, barley, tomato, and rye are all natural sources of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), or plant sugars. Fructo-oligosaccharides are often used as sweeteners in diet foods, as these sugars are indigestible by the human gut and boast a low-caloric value. To greater benefit, however, dietary or supplementary FOS increases the population of beneficial bifidobacteria in the colon and improves the absorption of both magnesium and calcium.
