"The fiber profile in pHion Gold is very well balanced between soluble and insoluble. It really helps maintain intestinal integrity."
Why you want to take prebiotics with your probiotics.
Most Americans lead lifestyles that deplete their systems of beneficial bacteria or friendly flora. As a result, they suffer from gas, diarrhea, bloating, constipation, yeast overgrowth, or more serious digestive conditions. Therefore, taking a stomach-stable probiotic formula, which helps re-colonize the gut with good bacteria, is an excellent idea for anyone with digestive complaints. If you’re going to take a probiotic product such as pHion Probiotic Blend, we suggest taking it with a probiotic formula, such as pHion Prebiotic Fiber to obtain the maximize results.
Why? Because probiotics are like seeds. When you plant seeds, you can’t guarantee that all of them will take root and grow. However, you can take steps to increase their chances, by giving them what they need to flourish: good soil, plenty of water, and access to sunshine. It’s the same with probiotics. You could swallow your probiotics and just hope for the best. But if you take your probiotics with prebiotics, you’ll make sure they have what they need to flourish and grow.
We especially recommend this step for people who have tested their pH using pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips and found it to be Very Acidic. Test your pH! Introducing probiotics into a very acidic GI tract is like trying to plant seeds in very poor soil. If you want the seeds to survive, you’ll need to make up for the poor-quality soil with high-quality plant food. Likewise, if you want your probiotics to survive, you’ll need to counterbalance the overly acidic environment of your GI tract with high-quality probiotic food — such as pHion Prebiotic Fiber.
What probiotics like to eat.
pHion Prebiotic Fiber contains exactly what probiotics like to eat: prebiotics. These unique non-digestible fibers are not absorbed in the upper part of the GI tract. Instead, they make their way to the colon, where they provide an excellent food source for the bacteria there.
And here’s the best part: only good bacteria like to eat prebiotics. So by selectively feeding the beneficial bacteria, their numbers start to grow, crowding out the harmful strains.1, 2, 3 In fact, research has shown that the prebiotic inulin, which is featured in pHion Prebiotic Fiber, increases the number of beneficial bifidobacteria in the colon threefold! 4 At the same time, it lowers levels of potentially harmful strains like bacteroides, fusobacteria, and clostridia!5
Not only that, an in vivo study found that inulin also increases the survival of probiotics. So not only are there more of them, but they live longer. When mice were fed the probiotic Lactobacillus casei by itself, it survived in their GI tracts for 2 days. But when they were fed inulin at the same time as the Lactobacillus casei, it lasted 6 days. In other words, taking the prebiotic inulin with the probiotic Lactobacillus casei made it last three times longer!6
How to support digestive health and up your fiber intake.
An added benefit of taking pHion Prebiotic Fiber is that it’s a great source of fiber. In case you didn’t know, fiber has loads of health benefits. It provides bulk in the intestines, making stools softer and easier to pass.7 It creates a feeling of fullness without any calories, so it’s a weight watcher’s dream.8 It delays stomach emptying (in other words, how long it takes food to leave the stomach), meaning it prevents spikes in blood sugar.9 It supports a healthy heart by maintaining normal cholesterol levels.10 And it acts like a sponge, soaking up acids and toxins from the intestines.11
Yet even with all those benefits, the average American only gets 15 grams of fiber per day — just a little over half the recommended amount!12
Adding pHion Prebiotic Fiber to your daily routine will not only support your digestive health, it’s also a great way to up your fiber intake. With over 5 grams per serving, it delivers more than 20% of the recommended daily intake of 25 grams. That’s the same amount of fiber in a tablespoon of flax powder (2 g) and a bowl of oatmeal (3 g) combined!
All in a convenient, great-tasting powder.
Now, we know that some people may prefer capsules to powders. But if you really want the threefold increase in beneficial bacteria that inulin can achieve, you have to take a decent dosage. And there’s simply no way you can fit 5 grams of fiber into a reasonable amount of capsules. (We tried.)
The good news is, we’ve created a product that solves people’s main objection to powders. pHion Prebiotic Fiber mixes easily with water or juice (no clumping), so it’s easy to drink, and it has a pleasant-tasting orange flavor, so it tastes good going down.
Make your probiotics work better…with pHion Prebiotic Fiber.
The fibers in pHion Prebiotic Fiber include:
Prebiotic Soluble Fibers
Inulin is a non-digestible fiber that acts as food for friendly flora. Numerous research studies have shown that inulin significantly increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract.13, 14, 15 One clinical trial found it increased the number of beneficial bifidobacteria in the colon threefold!16 Yet inulin is selective, meaning it doesn’t raise levels of harmful strains — only good ones.17, 18, 19 Probiotic supplements should always be taken with prebiotics like inulin, because prebiotics make probiotics work better.
As a side benefit, inulin has also been shown to increase calcium absorption, so in addition to supporting a healthy digestive tract, it also builds better bones!20
Unlike some synthesized poly and oligosaccharides, our inulin is 100% natural, extracted from chicory roots using hot water.
Note: While their names are similar, inulin and insulin have nothing to do with each other. Inulin will increase neither insulin nor blood sugar levels, so this product is perfectly suitable for diabetics.
Psyberloid. While soluble fiber dissolves in water, insoluble fiber largely passes through the GI tract intact. That means it adds bulk to the intestines, which eases constipation and makes you feel full after a meal.26 The good news about the insoluble fiber in pHion Prebiotic Blend is that it is ground very fine and does dissolve well in water while still providing the bulk you need to obtain the beneficial effects of Insoluble Fiber.
pHion Prebiotic Fiber provides beneficial Prebiotics and fiber to help replenish and restore intestinal health, which is crucial for overall pH Balance.
