Prebiotics support a healthy colon
A healthy colon contains more than 1.000 different types of bacteria. Prebiotics are specific dietary fibers serving as a source of energy for the healthy intestinal bacteria. A prebiotic fiber deficiency reduces the number of healthy intestinal bacteria quite rapidly and results in a dissonant intestinal flora. Therefore prebiotics are the basic requirement for a healthy colon.
A healthy individual features a total of several billion intestinal bacteria. Quite surprising, considering that this number is ten times higher than the total number of cells in the body. This enormous amount of micro-organisms requires a steady supply of nutrients for energy, growth and multiplication. The preferred energy source for healthy intestinal bacteria are dietary fibers.
Probiotics are live bacterial strains which are ingested to settle in the colon. Therefore they are imperative after antibiotic therapy, but also in case of an existing dissonant intestinal flora.
Prebiotics provide nutrients to the microbiom in the colon. More specifically, prebiotics promote proliferation of intestinal bacteria and the additional micro-organism absorbed with probiotics. Combined, they provide a harmonious intestinal flora and healthy colon function.
Prebiotic dietary fibers are present in fruits and vegetables, such as apple peels, bananas, onions and garlic, sunchoke, chicory root and beans.
Apparently it should be simple to ingest enough prebiotic dietary fibers with the foods we eat. However, considering the minor content of prebiotic dietary fibers in these foods often makes it difficult to provide adequate amounts through food intake alone.
In order to guarantee appropriate bowel elimination, an adequate amount of dietary fibers is required on daily basis. Experts recommend consuming a minimum of 25 grams of daily dietary fibers.
Not consuming enough fiber results in a lazy colon and a too slow digestion process and subsequently, hard bowel movements, pain and constipation. On long-term basis a lazy colon can poison the body and may result in serious intestinal disease.
Taking a good prebiotic on regular basis ensures a long-term optimal bowel movement frequency and consistency. It also promotes the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria, which is imperative for a healthy colon.
Approximately 20 years ago, scientists were searching for nutrients potentially promoting the natural growth of the micro-organisms in the large intestines. The research discovered prebiotic dietary fibers. Since then, numerous studies at renowned universities were conducted and indicated that the prebiotic dietary fibers contained in the chicory root (chicory) are especially suitable for the production of prebiotics.
Scientists discovered that certain strains of bacteria grow in certain sections of the large intestines and prefer different nutritional dietary fibers. This discovery resulted in developing prebiotic dietary fibers with diverse chain lengths.
Prebonia, the first broad-band prebiotic, is the result of this research. Different from the traditional prebiotics, such as Inulin or FOS (Fructose Oligo Saccharide), Prebonia contains a patented dietary fiber, which provides nutrients to the entire large intestines. Prebonia promotes the growth of a large variety of healthy intestinal bacteria.
Prebiona is a natural plant-based prebiotic extracted from the chicory root. The prebiotic dietary fibers contained herein, are specially developed and known as Oligofructose Enriched Inulin (OEI). The efficacy of this prebiotic dietary fiber has been tested in independent studies.
You can simply supplement your nutritional intake with high-quality dietary fibers by taking Prebiona and benefit from the numerous advantages of a healthy colon. If you are taking a probiotic, Prebiona increases its effectiveness, because it provides the nutrient preferred by the probiotic germs.
If you have an intestinal fructose intolerance or fructose malabsorption, you can also consume Prebiona within your normal gastrointestinal tolerance. Prebiona contains only 160mg fructose per level measuring spoon (4 gram powder).
If you suffer from fructosuria because of lack of liver fructokinase or from hereditary fructose intolerance because of lack of the enzyme aldolase B, you should not consume Prebiona.
The Chicory roots, which are used to produce the Oligofructose Enriched Inulin used in Prebiona, are cultivated under controlled conditions in Belgium. The obtained probiotic fibers are regularly analysed for different parameters, such as heavy metals, nitrates, mycotoxins and pesticides.

The gut needs time to adjust to the larger amounts of prebiotic fibres. Therefore it is important to increase the amount slowly, to avoid gas and bloating in sensitive people.
During the first 10 days, take 1/3 to 1/2 measuring spoon of Prebiona powder every day. If well tolerated, slowly increase the amount up to 4 measuring spoons per day, divided into 2 to 4 servings.
Dissolve Prebiona in water or fruit juice or stir the powder into food. Prebiona can be taken as a temporary supplement or permanently.
Each serving (1 level measuring scoop/4g) contains:
