The medicinal properties of bananas combined with Bimuno, a 2nd generation prebiotic, gives Banatrol Plus a unique combination of soluble fibers from banana flakes and a trans-galactooligosaccharide prebiotic. Soluble fiber does not promote hard stools and does not slow gut motility making it safe for those with c.diff diarrhea.
The soluble fibers in banana flakes have a gel-like property that helps thicken stool consistency and a prebiotic effect the promotes reabsorption of fluid in the colon to reduce watery diarrhea. Each dose of Banatrol Plus contains Bimuno, the prebiotic Trans-galactooligosaccharide that is a food source for the beneficial bacteria that reside in the colon or gut. It is not destroyed or digested in the stomach or small intestine, so it reaches the colon where it feeds the bacteria.
Because of its special patented process, the prebiotic Trans-galactooligosaccharide is a uniquely sized molecule that can be digested directly by only the “good” bacteria in the gut. Banatrol Plus is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of diarrhea without medication.
Precautions and Contra-Indications: Banatrol Plus is a medical food. Use under supervision by a qualified healthcare professional use. Not for intravenous use. Not recommended for children under 3 years of age.
