Info: 340 g Powder
To support a healthy digestive system, this is both a mild laxative and a probiotic. It provides a variety of plant fibres containing both soluble and insoluble fibre, which can not only give gentle relief of constipation and/or irregularity, but also help detoxify the colon: the former by binding to toxins and "bad bacteria" to prevent them from being absorbed into the body, and the latter by cleaning the colon walls as it passes through. It also provides 4 types of "good bacteria" to promote the growth of other good bacteria in the intestines, which not only helps us digest food and absorb nutrients, but can also help treat or prevent conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and many kinds of diarrhea. Some of its ingredients such as flaxseed meal and citrus bioflavonoids are also antioxidants.
