HOW CAN IT HELP YOU?
is known to keep the digestive tract healthy by providing bulk and
decreasing the transit time in the gut. Research has shown that many
people do not reach the recommended daily fibre intake of 25g a day. A
fibre supplement along with healthy sources of fibre such as fruit,
vegetables and wholegrain foods can help to increase your fibre intake.
Take one to three tablets, three times per day.
Lactobacillus acidophilus are microscopic organisms found naturally in the digestive tract and their function is to help protect us against the constant onslaught of harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and toxins. Also known as "friendly flora" these beneficial bacteria contribute to the bulk of bowel movements and also assist in extracting various nutrients from the food we eat. Fibre has been added to this supplement to take advantage of the known beneficial combination of good bacteria and fibre, which promote balance in the intestinal tract.
Without a healthy digestive tract, it is difficult to absorb or utilise nutrients. Florafibre contains lactobacillus acidophilus to help maintain the proper balance of friendly flora in your intestines. And healthy fibre is added to support natural cleansing during digestion.
Did you know?
We have several hundred different types of bacteria, weighing up to 2kg, resident in our intestinal tract, some live permanently in the gut, while others pass through, servicing the system as they go. The speed at which foods are processed and passed out of the body as stool is pivotal; the quicker this process happens, the less time there is for petrification and undesirable bacterial overgrowth in the intestines.
Healthy digestion and elimination of foods should ideally be complete within 24 hours. If there is an imbalance of bacteria or lack of dietary fibre, this transit time can increase to 72 hours, and beyond.

- Recommended Use:
What are "friendly flora" and why are they so important? All day, every day, our bodies are a warm and productive home to millions of bacteria (good and bad), and yeast-like fungi. Keeping the balance between the friendly and the unfriendly organisms is what determines a healthy digestive system.
Are you suffering the tell-tales signs of a digestive system in distress? Bloating, wind, cramps, constipation, flatulence, headaches, water retention and weight-gain are all indicators that the digestive tract is not functioning optimally. Introducing significant amounts of friendly flora will help to ease the symptoms of a stressed system.
Do you fall ill easily, and recover slowly? This could be due to a proliferation of bad bacteria in the system. If we do not eat the right types of food and if fluids are not plentiful, harmful bacteria can thrive and the immune system suffers so that our resistance to infection is impaired.
Does your diet include 35 grams of dietary fibre daily? Nutritional experts recommend a daily intake of 35 grams of fibre each day. The average European diet contains just 12-15 grams. Taking Florafibre (natural digestion supplement) every day will help to increase dietary fibre and promote intestinal well-being with the help of the Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Do you drink at least two litres of water daily? This is the amount recommended by nutritional experts in order to optimise natural bodily functions. Water is essential to the digestive processes, helping to prevent constipation where fibre is present and allowing friendly flora to flourish.
Key Ingredient Properties:
Lactobacillus acidophilus Enhances the body's ability to control pathogenic micro-organisms and help to support immune function. Naturally and consequently improves bowel function.
Acidophilus is found naturally in fermented foods, such as yogurt and sauerkraut, and is regarded as the most beneficial and versatile of the Lactobacilli family of friendly bacteria.
Cellulose It is a complex carbohydrate (dietary fibre). Cellulose cannot be broken down by gastric juices and therefore helps with the evacuation of waste products from the digestive tract.
