 Bone Health

 

Bone Health

 

NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber
Provides Superior Mineral Absorption
NUTRAFLORA provides strong support for maximum bone health. Recent studies reveal that about 3 grams of NUTRAFLORA per day may significantly and immediately improve calcium and magnesium absorption in human subjects, which may help to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Click here for our white paper "Prebiotic Fiber 2.0: Updated Research on NUTRAFLORA scFOS for Bone Health".
 
Boosts the Benefits of Soy Products
Found in soy products, isoflavones are a class of plant nutrients that resemble human estrogen, providing benefits to help fight disease. NUTRAFLORA amplifies the benefits of isoflavones by enhancing their absorption. The combination of NUTRAFLORA and isoflavones in a healthy diet has been shown to exhibit a positive impact on bone mineral density in the absence of estrogen.
 
AQUAMIN® calcified mineral source
Allows for Maximum Bioavailability
Calcium and magnesium are absorbed and used together. Since AQUAMIN contains both of these important minerals, maximum bioavailability may be realized.  Click here to download AQUAMIN Brochure
 
Promotes Stronger Bones
Magnesium has recently been shown to be a crucial element in bone health. AQUAMIN contains meaningful levels of magnesium to promote strong bones.

 

 

 Immune Health

 

Immune Health

NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber
Reinforces Immunity
NUTRAFLORA helps to maintain a strong immune system by building a healthy lower intestinal tract, which enhances the absorption of nutrients and helps to maintain proper digestion. By properly supporting the growth of probiotic bacteria in the gut, NUTRAFLORA also helps to reduce the number of pathogenic bacteria.
 
Safe for Diabetics and Supportive of a Low Carbohydrate Lifestyle
NUTRAFLORA is diabetic safe and can bring exceptional functional value to foods formulated for glycemic control. NUTRAFLORA is not absorbed in the mouth, stomach or small intestine, and studies show that it does not affect blood sugar or insulin levels.
