A colourless, tasteless prebiotic fibre derived from the seeds of the guar plant. This powder dissolves in water and has shown to be well tolerated in individuals with bowel symptoms, including IBS and SIBO.
Clinically, PHGG is used as:
– A bulking agent and prebiotic to help balance faecal movements – both constipation and diarrhoea
– A prebiotic food source to increase Bifidobacterium and other SCFA producing bacteria
– A dietary fibre to increase satiety
Mix 5g (1 tsp) daily into at least 200ml of water or other beverage of choice. Stir and take on an empty stomach.
If new to taking PHGG it is advisable to start with 1g dosage and slowly increase to 5g dosage to prevent abdominal discomfort.
Do not exceed the recommended dose, unless advised by your healthcare professional.
