Actilight® improves digestive comfort

As a dietary fibre, Actilight® has a beneficial impact on intestinal transit time. 

Modern diets, which often lack dietary fibres, have a tendency to increase transit times, which has annoying consequences such as constipation and waste of energy. Adding Actilight® will help to compensate that discrepancy by a moderate effect on transit time, which improves digestive comfort and does not involve any problem of digestive tolerance at a normal dose.  

A recent study led on 105 subjects with minor functional bowel disorders (FBD) has also shown that the consumption of Actilight® at a 5g daily dose for 6 weeks decreases the intensity and occurrence of digestive troubles, thus increasing digestive comfort and quality of life.
