Soluble dietary fibres belong to the prebiotics and are an important component in therapy and prevention.

At first glance, the term dietary fibre is somewhat clumsy. It gives the feeling of an unnecessary burden for the digestive process. But exactly the opposite is the case.

A distinction is made between water-soluble and water-insoluble dietary fibres. For the intestinal flora, the water-soluble dietary fibres are particularly interesting, as they interact with your bacteria in the intestine. They support the activity of your intestinal inhabitants and therefore have a prebiotic effect – beneficial to the bacteria (Probiotics). Prebiotics, in general, are becoming increasingly important when it comes to your health and fitness.

But let’s start at the beginning. Fibre is mainly found in fruit, vegetables, grains and pulses. They are largely indigestible and only their volume promotes your bowel mobility for stool transport and smart excretion. This is completely different from Acacia Fibres, which are water-soluble and therefore interactive fibres. The natural product originating from Africa is extracted from the milky sap of the acacia trees growing there. It contains Arabinogalactosaccaride, which gives the fibre its full effect. This is a highly branched sugar molecule. Therefore, the acacia fibre molecules are 300 times larger than comparable dietary fibres and thus reach your bacteria in the lower colon almost untouched.

Your colon is the habitat for many bacteria and benefits from their number, activity and metabolic products. Bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, in particular, have soluble fibre as their favourite food. They grow in greater numbers and are more active. Other strains of bacteria that are responsible for the quality of your intestinal mucosa form short-chain fatty acids from soluble fibre, especially butyrate, propionate and acetate. These fatty acids are very important and are at the heart of the partnership process between bacteria and soluble Acacia Fibres: they optimise your intestinal environment and promote the regeneration of the cells in your intestinal mucosa. This is important to prevent cell changes and to ensure sufficient production of mucin, your essential intestinal mucus. And not only that. They have a bifidogenic effect. This means that they can significantly increase the number of your beneficial intestinal bacteria.

Such a well-groomed inner life stimulates the intestinal muscles and promotes detoxification and cleansing with regular and soft bowel movements. Particularly in the case of constipation, the habitual intake of acacia fibres can provide quick relief in a natural and synergistic way. Also, those who suffer from diverticula, bulges in the intestines, benefit from the regular intake of soluble fibres. The study from the “British Medical Journal” shows that the risk of intestinal diverticula can be reduced.

So if you are starting an intestinal cure or simply want to do something good for your intestines, start with valuable dietary fibres. At best, combine pre- and probiotics. Acacia fibres are a purely natural substance which in soluble form acts perfectly with your intestinal inhabitants and creates a life-friendly environment. It is very well tolerated, without side effects and this is the ideal basis for your good gut feeling.
