Summary

  • Green lady finger banana is a prebiotic plant material that has been well researched and found to be rich in naturally-occurring resistant starch
  • Resistant starch is a food source for the microbiota which, in turn breaks down these starches to produce SCFAs for the human host, known to be highly beneficial for intestinal health
  • Research on banana resistant starch:
    • Significant butyrate-producer, incl. Faecalibacterium prausnitzii
    • SCFAs from unripe banana are anti-inflammatory to gut epithelium
    • Can counter potentially-mutagenic effect of red meat
    • Low Glycaemic Index
    • Improves insulin sensitivity independently of microbiota
    • Decreases post-prandial glycaemic and insulin responses and may reduce adipose accumulation
    • Possible anti-ulcerogenic effect
    • The high amylose : amylopectin RS ratio enhances anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic cell signalling
  • Made from unripe Australian bananas (grown in Far North QLD) in a gentle, low-heat proprietary process 
  • If PreBio RS is taken in addition to FloraGenex the total daily resistant starch will be 17.5 grams
  • Free from wheat and other grains, gluten, crustaceans, egg, fish, lupin, dairy, lactose, peanuts, sesame seeds, soybeans, corn, tree nuts
  • No added sugar, other sweeteners or artificial additives
