Adapted from Giaccari S et al. 2001.1 The effect of Partially Hydrolysed Guar Gum (PHGG) (5 g/day) on symptoms of IBS and frequency of evacuations was evaluated in 134 patients with IBS (mean number of weekly evacuations 2–35) over a period of 24 weeks.

 

Significant positive treatment effects of partially hydrolysed guar gum can be seen in as little as 3–4 weeks1

Adapted from Giaccari S et al. 2001.1 The effect of PHGG (5 g/day) on symptoms of IBS and frequency of evacuations was evaluated in 134 patients with IBS (mean number of weekly evacuations 2–35) over a period of 24 weeks. In a study of individuals who experience IBS symptoms, those receiving PHGG experienced a significant decrease in common symptoms of IBS, including bloating and gas.

The guar galactomannan/partially hydrolysed guar gum (PHGG) in ProNourish® Natural Balance Fibre is not only low in FODMAPs, but research shows that it increases the concentration of beneficial bacteria in the gut, helping balance the micro-organisms in the gut flora.2–5
