Livaux®

Anagenix

Livaux® is a whole fruit powder and provides a holistic solution to gut health. The prebiotic effect is provided by the presence of kiwifruit pectin which helps to support the growth of Faecalibacterium prausnitzii. As an extremely oxygen sensitive bacteria, F.prau cannot be taken as a probiotic supplement. Consumers who want to improve their gut health and promote the growth of their resident F.prau, therefore need to take a prebiotic like Livaux®.

Sunfiber® Prebiotic Dietary Fiber

NutriScience Innovations (on behalf of Taiyo International)

Sunfiber®’s unique fermentation process in the stomach and intestines is controlled, resulting in a higher amount of short chain fatty acids being produced over a greater period of time, leading to significantly less gas/ bloating/ discomfort as is common with other soluble fibers. Sunfiber®, a truly regulating prebiotic fiber, improves both occasional constipation and diarrhea through an osmotic process whereby it controls the water content of the stool.
