A clinically tested, natural soluble fibre that helps relieve symptoms associated with medically diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), including dual action relief from both constipation and diarrhoea.
It is made entirely from guar beans that have been milled and then partially hydrolyzed (or broken down) into smaller particles to dissolve more easily. Partially hydrolysed guar gum fibre (PHGG), also known as guar galactomannan, is different from many other common types of fibre as it has been shown to help relieve gas and bloating symptoms in those with medically diagnosed IBS.
It is unflavored and can be easily mixed with hot or cold food or beverages.
Recommended daily dosage: Adults over 18 years should take 1–4 level metric tablespoons* per day or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
