Why we only use Sunfiber, pure acacia, and baobab in Daily Healthy Bowel

Why we only use Sunfiber, pure acacia, and baobab in Daily Healthy Bowel

Sunfiber, pure acacia, and baobab are the only ingredients in Daily Healthy Bowel, and we spent a long time deciding on this formula. In this article, we'll talk about why these ingredients are such an important, scientifically backed combination.

Boosting your prebiotic fibre with Sunfiber

Sunfiber is an very high-quality*, soluble fibre made from guar beans. Whilst insoluble fibres play an important role in adding bulk to your stools, it is soluble fibres that play the more important role in feeding your good gut bacteria and ensuring that you have a healthy gut microbiome. In turn, a healthy gut microbiome is crucial, not just for your digestive health, but for your overall wellbeing.

People sometimes get a little confused by the terms prebiotic and probiotic, so lets look at them first. In simple terms, Probiotics are the the good bacteria we have in our gut. Prebiotics are any food that makes Probiotics thrive and proliferate. Sunfiber is a great way to provide this prebiotic food for the good guys in your gut.

In fact, to date, there have been five human clinical studies specifically studying the effects of Sunfiber, and those results demonstrated benefits including:

  • Significalty increased levels of the critical gut bacteria Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus after just 2 weeks of Sunfiber consumption.
  • In multiple trials participants reported significant constipation relief or improved stool forms, an additional benefit of Sunfiber.
  • Patients suffering with SIBO, a condition characterised by gas, bloating and discomfort due to high levels of bacteria fermenting food in the small intestine, increased the eradication rate over 40% when used alongside standard antibiotic treatments.

Due to the amount of scientific evidence supporting the benefits of Sunfiber on the gut microbiome it was so important to us to use it as a core ingredient of our Daily Health Bowel product. Most adults only manage to take in around 18 grams of fibre per day (around half the recommended amount), so including Daily Health Bowel in your routine is a great way to bridge this gap!

Supercharging the benefits of acacia and baobab

Our second ingredient in Daily Healthy Bowel is Inavea. This is a brand name for a very high-quality source of acacia fibre and baobab fruit powder. The research team that discovered this blend, found out that both acacia and baobab have very high prebiotic effect on their own, but when put together they actually double the effectiveness of each other. In other words, the combination of the two seems to have a synergistic effect that your good bacteria love.

Like Sunfiber, Inavea also helps to boost, restore and sustain the beneficial microflora balance in your gut, to optimise your digestive health. But it has also been shown to improve gut inflammation.

Another reason that we particularly love Inavea is because acacia and baobab are completely natural, organic, 100% plant-based and FODMAP** friendly. This makes it a great option for people with sensitive guts who may struggle with IBS, stomach pain, general discomfort or below average bowel habits. In fact, baobab that has been shown to be as effective as Inulin (a popular source of dietary prebiotic fibre) in promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria. However, Inulin is high on the FODMAP scale and can irritate the bowel in many cases.

Sunfiber + Inavea = Daily Healthy Bowel

Combining these two products together in our new Daily Health Bowel product gives you the perfect blend of balanced fibre based on extensive scientific studies. Our mix is designed to give you the optimum amount in each dose (3 grams of Sunfiber and 5 grams of Inavea in each scoop). 

So, what are the actual, tangible benefits of all this?

Improved gut health reduces low-level inflammation in the gut which directly translates to better overall wellbeing, clarity of mind and regularity. Additionally, the fibres in our blend have been shown to help with:

  • Reducing cholesterol
  • Regulating blood sugar levels
  • Effortless appetite control
  • Healthy insulin response
