METAGENICS – Ultra Flora GI Regulate
Ingredients in Ultra Flora GI Regulate have been clinically shown to or may:
Support healthy bowel function.
Reduce constipation and irritable bowel syndrom (IBS) symptoms via modulation of small instestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), methane levels, short chain fatty acids (ie. butyrate), intestinal barrier integrity and inflammation.
Low reactive, FODMAP free, powdered prebiotic and probiotic food for sensitive patients.
Lactobacillus plantarum (299v) has been shown to reduce a range of IBS symptoms.
PHGG is a selective prebiotic, used as a fuel by butyrate producing bacteria.
PHGG has been found to reduce symptoms of chronic constipation as well as decrease symptoms of IBS.
PHGG is fermented by the large intestinal commensal bacteria, increasing SCFA production particularly butyrate, as well as assisting colonic blood flow and epithelial repair.
PHGG influences gut motility, secretions and vagal modulation of contraction, and has been shown to reduce methane levels.
PHGG has shown other benefits, including reduced methane excretion, improved effectiveness of antibiotic SIBO treatment (when used with PHGG) and improvements in chronic constipation.
Probiotics can help modulate visceral hypersensitivity to reduce abdominal pain and improve patient comfort.
Lactobacillus plantarum (299v) and PHGG have been shown to reduce abdominal pain, which can be a key symptom driving patients to seek health advice.
Lactobacillus plantarum (299v) has shown to exert a modulatory effect on the inflammatory response of epithelium, helping to improve gastrointestinal comfort and health.
