Pure Gusto™ Prebiotic Capsules - by Organic 3, Inc.
Prebiotic fiber supplement in capsule form to promote intestinal health and immune function
Pure Gusto™ is a unique prebiotic fiber supplement by Organic 3. Many prebiotic supplements you’ll find on the market today are made from fructooligosaccharides - a sugary, starchy substance that feeds pathogens. Instead, Pure Gusto combines galactooligosaccharides with beta-glucan.
This special combo provides targeted support for gastrointestinal function, as the galactooligosaccharides, a type of prebiotic that naturally occurs in human and cow's milk, stimulates the growth of healthful bacteria. And beta-glucan, a soluble fiber with prebiotic activities, is supportive of the immune system.*
With a total of 60 convenient vegetarian capsules, Pure Gusto™ may be taken by children and adults alike - and may be suitable for infants and the elderly, especially those with diets lacking enough fiber.
Pure Gusto™ is free of the following common allergens: eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, yeast and soybeans; and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives (While Organic 3 attempts to avoid all common allergens, in order to produce a prebiotic without fructooligosaccharides, Pure Gusto™ does contain very small amounts of dairy and fish).
Pure Gusto™ works synergistically with Organic 3 probiotics to maintain a healthy, balanced gastrointestinal microflora. Try it and enjoy a bit of gusto in your day!
We also have Pure Gusto™ in powder form.
Pure Gusto prebiotic benefits
Promotes a healthy balance of intestinal microflora: A diverse population of "friendly" bacteria colonizes the gastrointestinal tract and exerts a key role in health and well-being. By serving as a food and energy source for beneficial bacteria, prebiotics help stimulate the growth and activity of a healthy intestinal microflora. Pure Gusto™ provides galactooligosaccharides, a type of prebiotic that naturally occurs in human and cow's milk that stimulates the growth of healthful Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species in the gut.
Supports healthy immune responses: By promoting a healthy balance of intestinal microflora, prebiotics support the development and maintenance of a healthy immune system. Galactooligosaccharides and beta-glucan, a soluble fiber with prebiotic activities, have also been shown to have additional immune supportive properties.* Both ingredients help regulate a balance between Th1 and Th2 immune responses that help protect the body from harmful pathogens and promote immune tolerance to harmless dietary and environmental allergens.*
Protects against intestinal pathogens: Healthful intestinal bacteria ferment prebiotics, such as galactooligosaccharides into short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids beneficially increase the intestinal acidity (lower pH), which creates an inhospitable environment for pathogen growth. Beta-glucan may also provide additional support by stimulating an immune response to a wide spectrum of pathogens, including fungal (Candida albicans), Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus), and Gram-negative (E. coli) microorganisms.*
Prebiotics are a type of soluble dietary fiber with the ability to selectively support the growth and activity of health-promoting bacteria normally found in the gut. Prebiotics can also support the growth and activity of "probiotics" such as Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria that are often consumed in dietary supplements or foods such as yogurt.
Prebiotics play numerous other physiologic roles, including optimizing immune function, facilitating bowel regularity, supporting the integrity of the gut barrier, enhancing mineral absorption and defending against potentially harmful bacteria.*
