Actilight® is a prebiotic fibre: it particularly stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, which are generally recognised as health promoting. Actilight® is active from birth to elderly and particularly in people who have suffered from severe disturbance in the gut microflora.
The bifidogenic effect of Actilight® is dose dependent. Actilight® is shown to be bifidogenic at a 2.5g daily dose and the effect increases with the dose until 10g/day. The bifidogenic effect of Actilight® is visible after 4 days of consumption. A double blind clinical study in human volunteers (Bouhnik et al.) explored the bifidogenic properties of a wide range of prebiotics and demonstrated that Actilight® was the most effective bifidogenic substance tested at a 10g daily dose. Notably, Actilight® at 10g/day is significantly more bifidogenic than long-chain inulin at 15g/day.
