A soluble source of prebiotic fibre for both constipation and diarrhoea
Derived from guar beans, PHGG is a convenient source of vegan dietary fibre that helps support the balance of faecal movements (i.e constipation and diarrhoea)
Rebalances the gut and increases microbial diversity
Selectively feeds gut microbiota (Bifidobacterium and other SCFA producing bacteria) to rebalance the gut microbiome and increase diversity.
Suitable for those with existing bowel symptoms
PHGG dissolves in water with no flavour and is well tolerated in individuals with existing bowel symptoms such as IBS or SIBO.
A heat-stable prebiotic
PHGG is a heat-stable prebiotic that can be baked into foods, added into stovetop meals and smoothies or added to your morning cup of coffee or tea.
Mix 5g (1 tsp) daily into at least 200ml of water or other beverage of choice.
Do not exceed the recommended dose, unless advised by your healthcare professional.
Suitable from 6 months
PHGG is normally well tolerated, but if you have a sensitive stomach, start with half a dose and build up gradually to the full dosage.
PHGG has been consumed by pregnant and lactating women for years, and it has been shown to be a safe way to improve regularity and reduce cramping and bloating. As with any supplement, however, please consult with your health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
PHGG is a specially chosen prebiotic as it is well tolerated in the majority of people, unlike some other prebiotics like Fructooligosaccharides (FOS). However, all of our microbiomes are unique, so when trying to change your microbiome there may be some transient changes in bowel movements and abdominal sensations, none of which should be uncomfortable.
In people with sensitive stomachs, we suggest starting with a lower dose and gradually increasing to the full dose over a number of weeks, so only the benefits are noticeable.
