Derived health benefits
The stimulation of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli by Actilight® enhances the production of SCFA
(short chain fatty acids), especially butyrate
, which is recognized to be essential for a healthy colon.
The production of SCFA maintains an acidic pH within the colon and favours the assimilation of some nutrients.
These modifications of the colonic ecosystem lead to several benefits for Actilight®‘s consumers:
• digestive comfort
: Actilight® decreases the frequency and intensity of digestive troubles in people suffering from functional digestive disorders.
• immune stimulation
: Actilight® enhances the gut immune system, improves resistance against pathogens and promotes a healthy colon.
• nutrients absorption
: Actilight® improves the absorption of essential nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and isoflavones.
• carbohydrates metabolism
: Actilight® has no effect on glycaemia and insulinemia, and could have a positive influence on insulin sensitivity.
• lipids metabolism
: studies demonstrated promising effect of Actilight® on plasma cholesterol levels.
