The prebiotic effect of Actilight® has been demonstrated by more than 200 clinical studies worldwide. This prebiotic effect consists in bringing specific changes in the composition and/or activity of the digestive microflora in order to confer health and well-being benefits. Active enough to stimulate the growth of bifidobacteria at 2.5 g per day during seven days of supplementation, Actilight® is one of the most efficient prebiotic fibres.
Clinical studies have clearly shown that Actilight® improves the digestive comfort. After 6 weeks of consumption of Actilight®, the intensity of abdominal pain significantly decreases. 96% of the subjects observed a significant improvement of digestive comfort and 83% did confirm a better well-being in their daily activities.
Many studies have proven a positive effect on the immune system with the reinforcement of the intestinal barrier effect and the reduction of potentially pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal tract. Enhancement of the bio-availability of calcium and magnesium has also been demonstrated. Moreover, Actilight® was shown to enhance the absorption of isoflavones from the diet and to improve bone density by increasing their bio-availability.
