Versatile prebiotic formula to optimize gut microflora, improve bowel function
and support the immune system.
BiotaGen is a distinctive formulation of soluble dietary fiber with prebiotic
activities that stimulates growth of colonic populations of beneficial bacteria
and enhances gastrointestinal and systemic immune function in multiple ways.
BiotaGen combines chicory inulin and oligofructose, highly effective
prebiotics, with the immunomodulating actions of larch arabinogalactan and
purified yeast beta-glucan.
Chicory-derived inulin and oligofructose are inulin-type fructans best known
for their ability to sustain increases in populations of Bifidobacterium,
Lactobacillus, and Eubacterium, an important butyrate-producing species
indigenous to the bowel. By escaping digestion and absorption in the small
intestine, inulin-type fructans arrive largely intact in the colon where they
selectively feed beneficial gut microbiota. In addition, inulin-type fructans
promote normal colon transit times, enhance absorption of calcium and
magnesium, favorably modulate lipid levels, improve gut mucosal barrier and
immune function, regulate intestinal epithelial cell growth, and reduce the
number of potentially harmful bacterial species.
Arabinogalactan, a polysaccharide derived from the Western Larch tree, is a
highly soluble dietary fiber that enhances immune function by promoting
cytokine production and increasing the number of natural killer cells.
Indigestible by human enzymes, arabinogalactan exerts prebiotic properties
including the ability to selectively stimulate Lactobacillus species.
Arabinogalactan is metabolized to short-chain fatty acids acetate, butyrate,
and propionate and reduces ammonia production.
Beta-glucan, a glucose polysaccharide prebiotic fiber, has broad, beneficial
effect on immune function through enhancement of monocytes, macrophages, and
natural killer cells. Beta-glucan stimulates immune response to a wide spectrum
of pathogens, including fungal (Candida albicans), Gram-positive
(Staphylococcus aureus), and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) microorganisms.
BiotaGen is recommended to nutritionally support optimal gastrointestinal
function, promote populations of healthful colonic bacteria, and enhance
gastrointestinal and systemic immune function. BiotaGen® works synergistically
with probiotics to assure intestinal microflora balance. Available in both
powder and vegetarian capsule form.
