Each serving of Twinlab Colon Care contains:
Psyllium husks: A natural fiber that helps keep the entire gastrointestinal system functioning smoothly. Fiber in the diet is important for the maintenance of good health. Each serving of Colon Care provides 5 grams of natural psyllium husk fiber. Unlike bran, psyllium husk fiber is extremely gentle.
Barley malt: A natural grain extract extract rich in naturally occurring vitamins. It promotes the growth of helpful bacteria, acidophilus and bifidus (bifidobacteria), in the intestinal tract, creating a more favorable environment where these beneficial bacteria can flourish. Each serving of Colon Care provides 17 grams of barley malt extract.
Acidophilus (lactobacillus acidophilus): An important and normal inhabitant of healthy human intestines. Acidophilus can help control the growth of undesirable microorganisms entering the digestive system.* In addition, research indicates acidophilus can improve the digestion of lactose (a milk sugar) and increase vitamin B synthesis. The acidophilus in Colon Care is of the highest quality and stability obtainable. It is a specially selected viable strain of freeze-dried acidophilus that is resistant to stomach acid and survives passage through the gastrointestinal tract. Each serving of Colon Care provides 1 billion live acidophilus cells at time of formulation.
Bifidus (Bifidobacterium Longum): The most prevalent and friendly microorganisms in the colon, many scientific researachers believe they play an important role in protecting good health. Colon Care contains Bifidobacterium longum, the superior human strain of bifidobacteria that is an integral part of normal adult intestinal microflora. Unlike the infant type of bifidobacteria which cannot survive or proliferate in the intestines of older people, Bifidobacterium longum is highly stable and resistant to stomach acids in adults, ensuring its survival through the gastrointestinal tract and maximum function in the colon. Each serving of Colon Care provides 1 billion live Bifidobacterium longum cells at time of formulation.
Vitamin C (calcium ascorbate): It helps promote the growth of bifidus (bifidobacteria), ensuring a proper balance of intestinal flora. Each serving of Colon Care provides 250 mg buffered vitamin C from calcium ascorbate, a gentle form of vitamin C. Calcium ascorbate also supplies a natural source of calcium which recent research suggests may help maintain colon health.
