Wellbeing Nutrition, an organic plant-based nutrition company, has launched a plant-based Probiotic + Prebiotic, which is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and sugar-free. According to the company, the product offers six strains along with prebiotic fibre, which is designed to give a healthier gut with a simple 21-day routine.
“Gut is the second brain of the body. However, since our Indian diets are rich in oils, spices, refined sugars and tea/coffee, almost 80% of Indians suffer from digestive concerns, ranging from indigestion, acid reflux, gas, and constipation. Trying to eat healthy, staying off junk, and exercising regularly are all great starting points but the natural flora of our intestines has been compromised with our lifestyle. The lifestyle issues we face today are not just a symptom of our last unhealthy takeaway, it is an SOS from our gut, asking for help,” said Avnish Chhabria, Founder, Wellbeing Nutrition, in a company press release.
The product 36 Billion (CFU) live and active cultures from six clinically-proven strains to supplement the natural diversity of the gut microbiome. This helps add more ‘good, friendly’ bacteria to gut, which naturally colonises the human GI tract and keeps it clean, balanced, and healthy.
Talking about the strains, Avnish said, “We source ingredients from the United States. The 36 billion CFU live cultures in our product are 100 times more than the probiotics found in dairy yoghurt and three times more than the amount found in probiotic health drinks available in the market. We use three strains of Lactobacillus, two strains of Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus each to ensure complete digestive and immune support to healthy intestinal flora.”
The company release also mentioned that Wellbeing Nutrition’s Probiotic + Prebiotic helps in healthy digestion, aids in detoxification, reduces acidity, treats Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and constipation, improves metabolism, and enhances the immune system.
“Created after seven years of meticulous research in the USA, this tab is enhanced with natural plant-based digestive enzymes and prebiotic fibres with its ‘delayed-release technology’. It also contains chicory root (inulin) and apple pomace, which collectively help nourish good bacteria in the digestive system giving a complete 2-1 support compared to the regular Probiotics flooding the Indian shelf. Inulin, especially, acts as the prebiotic fibre that aids in the absorption of calcium and magnesium for stronger bones and helps with controlling the appetite and reducing inflammation in the gut. It also helps in regularising bowel movements,” the release further stated.
One bottle of Probiotic + Prebiotic contains 21 tabs for a 21-day routine. It comes in green apple and peppermint flavour.
