Fibre as part of a balanced diet
The process of elimination can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours, or even longer. Broadly speaking, the shorter the time, the better.
Unfortunately, modern eating habits and lifestyles have a tendency to increase digestive transit times quite considerably - for example, because foods high in saturated fats, sugar and artificial additives are harder for the body to digest and tend also to be low in natural dietary fibre.
As transit time increases, the stool becomes increasingly hardened and difficult to pass. Moreover, as the body re-absorbs the fluid content of the waste-matter that has failed to move through the digestive tract and be eliminated, it also re-absorbs soluble toxins.
Fibre is a key ingredient to a healthy, varied and balanced diet.
About psyllium husks
Psyllium is a form of dietary fibre sourced from the Plantago ovata plant, specifically from the husks of the plant’s seed. It sometimes goes by the name Ispaghula. Psyllium is produced commercially mainly for its mucilage content. The term "mucilage" describes a group of clear, colourless gelling agents derived from plants. The mucilage obtained from psyllium comes from the seed coat. Mucilage is obtained by mechanical milling (i.e. grinding) of the outer layer of the seed. Mucilage yield amounts to about 25% (by weight) of the total seed yield. Plantago-seed mucilage is often referred to as husk, or psyllium husk. The milled seed mucilage is a white fibrous material that is hydrophilic, meaning that its molecular structure causes it to attract and bind to water. Upon absorbing water, the mucilaginous gel that forms increases in volume by ten times or more.
Weight management support
This formula includes glucomannan (a form of soluble fibre derived from the konjac root) and stevia leaf extract.
Glucomannan also contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 4g of glucomannan per day.
Konjac fibre glucomannan:
- has almost no calories
- is naturally high in fibre
- absorbs water in the stomach
- in contact with water, expands and can absorb up to 50 times its weight.
Plus, the stevia makes it sweeter, without the added calories!
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid and is the most abundant free amino acid in muscle cells. It is a molecule that our body stores in the skeletal muscles and bloodstream, and converts into glucose (blood sugar) when it is needed.
L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is synthesised from 3 other amino acids: ornithine, arginine and proline. It is also a component of glutathione, a nutrient present in virtually every cell. Our body's own levels of glutamine can come under strain in circumstances of metabolic stress, including injuries, illness and even severe emotional distress.
