Optimised absorption

BCAA – are balanced ration of 2:1:1 for branch chain amino acids for optimum absorption.

B6- an essential co-factor in protein synthesis.

Glutamine – the most abundant amino in the body and muscle with many positive influence on gut health, blood sugar management so aiding nutrient absorption.

Pre & probiotics

Probiotics are live microorganisms similar to those "good" or beneficial bacteria normally found in the digestive system. This beneficial bacteria is important not only in nutrient absorption but also for both healthy digestion and a healthy immune system. Research suggests eating foods that contain probiotics may improve certain illnesses, offer protection against disease, and improve or boost overall health.

In addition to promoting healthy digestion and boosting immunity, studies show probiotics may:

  • lower cholesterol
  • regulate hormones
  • reduce symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Improve nutrient assimilation
  • shorten the duration of diarrhea
  • decrease risk of certain cancers

A good way to boost healthy bacteria in the body is to consume foods that contain prebiotics. Prebiotics such as fructo-oliogsaccharides (FOS), inulin, and polydextrose (an indigestible carbohydrate) stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria. Probiotic Supplements Many adults choose to take probiotic supplements. Since FOS promotes rapid growth of healthy bacteria, it's important to either purchase a probiotic supplement that also contains FOS or purchase a separate FOS supplement.

While supplements offer convenience and ensure adequate amounts of prebiotics and probiotics are included in the diet, consuming foods that contain prebiotics and probiotics offer added nutritional benefits since these foods also contain many essential vitamins and minerals that can boost overall health.
