Essential Fibers

Fibers are renowned for being instrumental to our health. Fiber, which is present in vegetables, fruit, whole-wheat flower, oat flakes, and legume, is wholesome because it:

1. regulates activity of the gastrointestinal tract;
2. decreases insulin release; and
3. limits storage of fat in the body.

Fibers (also called prebiotics) are the only substances not absorbed in our bodies. Being resistant to heat amplitudes and increased acidity in the stomach, fibers can freely move through our entire digestive tract, which is good for our bodies because they are the food of beneficial bacteria (probiotics).

World health experts recommend a daily fiber intake of 25g. Scientific studies indicate that the actual fiber consumption in the majority of people is twice lower, and an additional fiber intake is therefore needed (as a food supplement) in order to ensure optimum functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, support peristalsis, and overcome constipation.

These are precisely the functions of LACTOFLOR NATURAL FIBERS -100% natural fibers extracted from chicory root and clinically proven in alleviating constipation. These fibers help cleanse the body from toxins, reduce body weight, and improve the absorption of calcium in our bodies. Therefore, the recommended daily intake of this food supplement is at least 10g.





Lactoflor

Each sachet of Lactoflor Natural Fibers contains 10g of natural fiber: inulin extracted from chicory root. Chicory root has an exceptionally high concentration of inulin, obtained through a process of soft, hot-water extraction. Over 250 research studies and clinical tests have confirmed the beneficial effects of inulin on health.



What happens when inulin enters the body?
It is transformed into a gel-like substance, filling the stomach and slowing down digestion—inulin helps us feel full and not overeat. Inulin also regulates blood sugar and is recommended to anyone suffering from pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or diabetes.










Main Beneficial
Effects of Inulin?

probiotik

1. Stimulate Bifidobacteria (prebiotic effect)

Our digestive system incorporates billion of bacteria, which contribute to various biologic functions, including the formation of a protective barrier against pathogens. Inulin selectively stimulates the growth of Bifidobacteria, one type of beneficial bacteria. This growth ensures the prevalence of Bifidobacteria, disabling the development of less beneficial bacteria. Our digestive system maintains its balance through this prebiotic effect. The graph below shows the prebiotic effect of inulin with everyday use.

2. Optimise Intestinal Function (first aid in irregular stomach)

Fiber extracted from chicory root is not digested in the stomach or small intestine. It reaches the colon virtually intact and nourishes part of its microflora, which improves peristalsis and bowel passage. Inulin also decreases the body’s ability to form a particular type of fat, which helps reduce body weight.

3. Increase Calcium Absorption

We are constantly struggling with calcium insufficiency and osteoporosis. Calcium—essential for our bone system—is supplied from the food we consume. But only one-third of calcium we consume is absorbed by the body.

Inulin effectively increases calcium absorption and bone density. Inulin helps restore balance in the digestive system and helps improve the overall condition of the body.
