Pure Gusto™ benefits include:
- Casein and gluten free.
- No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
- Viable alternative to chicory-based prebiotics.
- Works synergistically with probiotics.
Increases healthful intestinal microbiota: By serving as a food and energy source for beneficial bacteria normally found in the gut or ingested as probiotics, prebiotic fiber selectively stimulates the growth and activity of a healthful gastrointestinal microbiota. Pure Gusto™ provides a rich source of galactooligosaccharides, a type of digestion-resistant carbohydrate found naturally in both human and cow's milk that increases numbers of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species in the intestinal tract.
Supports Th1/Th2 immune balance: Prebiotics support the development and maintenance of immune tolerance and enhance clearing of antigens by promoting a healthy gut microbiota and perhaps, by also directly interacting with immune cells in gut-associated lymphoid tissue.* Galactooligosaccharides and yeast beta-glucan in Pure Gusto™ promote normal regulatory T cell function and balanced Th1/Th2 responses that help protect the body from harmful responses to environmental allergens and pathogens.*
Enhances resistance to pathogens: Prebiotic support of health promoting microbiota leads to increased competition with pathogens for colonization sites and enhanced production of short-chain fatty acids that create an inhospitable environment for pathogen growth. Prebiotics in Pure Gusto™ have been shown to enhance colonization resistance against a variety of pathogenic microorganisms, such as Clostridium difficile, Clostridium perfringens, Escherichia coli, and other coliforms.*
Who should consider taking Pure Gusto™?
Anyone consuming a standard American diet low in dietary fiber will likely benefit from Pure Gusto™.* This formula can be used by children or adults and may be particularly suitable for infants, the elderly, or others who wish to support digestive and immune function.*
We also have Pure Gusto™ in capsule form.
Try it and enjoy a bit of gusto in your day!
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 like 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.*
