Bananas are a unique fiber source and have long been used as part of the “BRAT” diet for the management of diarrhea. The dehydrated banana flakes in Banatrol Plus contain several soluble fibers, mucilage, amylase resistant starch and pectin, along with potassium which act to help form stool by directly thickening the loose stool as well as promoting reabsorption of water in the colon through its prebiotic effect.

Bimuno prebiotic- a trans-galactooligosaccharide-  is a food source for the beneficial bacteria that reside in the gut or colon. Unlike probiotics, prebiotics are not live bacteria/fungal spores so they are not destroyed or digested in the stomach or intestine or destroyed by antibiotics. Clinical studies show that Bimuno promotes growth of just the beneficial bacteria, which then proliferate at a much faster rate than harmful bacteria, helping to restore normal gut flora.

Bimuno is classified as a second-generation (B-GOS) prebiotic. This is because it offers added functionality beyond its prebiotic (increases and strengthens beneficial bacteria) and bifidogenic (increases and strengthens immunity-boosting bacteria) effects. Bimuno is a unique patented prebiotic with multifaceted benefits.

How Bimuno works: Bimuno reaches the small intestine intact where it inhibits adhesion of GI-pathogenic bacteria. In the large intestine, it is fermented by the specific beneficial bacteria (bifidobacteria). This leads to a 
change in pH balance, resulting in a positive change in the microflora. This selective fermentation increases and strengthens the immunity-boosting bifidobacteria resulting in  increased NK cell and phagocytic activity which produces a direct positive effect on the innate 
immune system.
The advantage of Bimuno is its ability to enhance the growth of only the good bacteria. Other prebiotics such as FOS an Inulin can be used as an energy source by both good and bad gut bacteria. Bimuno’s chemical structure is designed similar to a lock and key that match the shape of the good gut bacteria so only they can digest it.
Bimuno works naturally with the body to maintain and/or restore a healthy balance of bacteria within the GI tract that is lost because of aging, infection, laxatives, antibiotics, inadequate food intake, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
