Pure Gusto™ – Prebiotic Powder
Prebiotic fiber supplement to promote intestinal health and immune function, 150 grams
Our Organic 3 Pure Gusto™ powder is a unique prebiotic fiber supplement for people of all ages who may need more dietary fiber - and digestive support. Its potent combination of prebiotic galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and the immunomodulatory soluble dietary fiber, beta-glucan, helps beneficially modify intestinal bacteria to promote gut health and ultimately, support the immune system.*
Just as important as its unique combination of GOS and beta-glucan is what Pure Gusto™ doesn’t have… Most prebiotic supplements you’ll find on the market today are made from fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a sugary, starchy substance that feeds pathogens. There’s absolutely no FOS in Pure Gusto™!
Pure Gusto™ benefits include:
Viable alternative to chicory-based prebiotics.
Works synergistically with Organic 3 probiotics.
Free of the following common allergens: eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, yeast and soybeans (While Organic 3 attempts to avoid all common allergens, in order to produce a prebiotic without FOS, Pure Gusto™ does contain small amounts of dairy and fish).
No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
We also have Pure Gusto™ in capsule form.
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.*
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.*
