With today's busy lives and irregular eating patterns, many of us find it difficult to keep our bowels healthy.
Lepicol is a three-in-one combination of gentle psyllium husk fibre, live bacterial cultures and inulin and may assist in the maintenance of normal bowel transit.
The main fibre source within Lepicol products is Psyllium husk (Plantago ovata forsk). Psyllium husk helps to normalize stool size and forms a soft gel in the bowel which eases the stool along the lower digestive tract ready for evacuation. Psyllium husks are much gentler than some common fibre supplements.
Lepicol contains five strains of live bacteria. Your digestive tract is home to trillions of gut bacteria that aid in digestion, help prevent a pathogenic bacteria over-growth, and have an impact on your immune system. Keeping a balanced gut microflora helps to ensure that the environment in your digestive tract is stable and goes a long way to aid in your health well-being.
Inulin is a fibre that is sourced from chicory root. Inulin is not broken down by the body - it is fermented by the live bacteria in the gut to support the growth of live bacteria.
