Benefits of Prebiotics
The benefits of prebiotics and probiotics would not have the credibility they do now without the extensive medical research that has occurred over the past 15 years. Indeed, it is precisely these well-documented articles in the medical literature that demonstrated the health benefits of prebiotics and encouraged Jackson GI Medical to come into this groundbreaking field.
The story, so far, is simply dramatic.
The colon, instead of being the waste organ — which is what was once taught in medical school — is instead a robust major health organ. It is powered by the thriving bacteria factory which itself is nourished by the prebiotic fibers that we ingest.
What Do We Know Now About the Health Benefits of Prebiotics?
- Increase of calcium and magnesium absorption
- Stronger bones, increased bone density
- Enhanced and strengthened immune system
- Reduced blood triglyceride levels
- Better-controlled weight and appetite due to healthy gut hormonal changes
- Increased “good” bacteria in the gut – most important of all
- Concomitant decrease in the “bad,” unwanted bacteria in the gut
- Reduced abnormal bacterial leakage through the gut wall, otherwise known as “leaky gut syndrome“
- Improved bowel regularity
- May reduce intestinal infections
- May reduce inflammation in the colon walls
- Reduced or cessation of smelly flatus smell
- May reduce anxiety
There is even an early study in rats that indicates a 30% increase in the length of survival!
Well, you see the big picture. Eating well with the health benefits prebiotics provide — in addition to the right foods — might make a big difference in your life in many ways.

The Prebiotin Advantage
The Prebiotin™ family of nutritional supplements are all-natural plant-based, full-spectrum prebiotic fiber supplements. The prebiotic fibers in Prebiotin, Oligofructose-Enriched-Inulin, or OEI, are proven to stimulate good bacteria growth throughout the entire colon, thus optimizing the prebiotic benefits you can realize by taking it daily.
The field of prebiotics has progressed from infancy in 1995 to a robust teenager with the publication of the state-of-the-science by Dr. Roberfroid in 2010. An extensive review of published medical data has shown the following benefits of prebiotics to be comfortably proven.
What Makes It Different
The bottom line is that the Prebiotin formula has significant amounts of both oligofructose and inulin. These two natural fibers provide positive bacterial action throughout the colon which is why we call our product a full spectrum prebiotic.
Why Prebiotic Supplementation
The discovery of prebiotics in the 1990s within the foods we have been eating for thousands of years ushered in a tremendous amount of research. We now know that we should be ingesting about 8 grams of these inulin-type of prebiotics each day to maintain a positive digestive balance in the gut.

What Makes Prebiotin Different
A prebiotic is a natural plant fiber that provides fuel for the good bacteria growing in your colon or large bowel. The more the better. There is a simple but important difference where in the colon these prebiotics act. Here is a picture of the colon:
The right side of the colon is where enormous bacterial activity occurs because this is the part of the colon that gets the first crack at the fuel coming in from the small bowel. There is considerable acidity here as well as the bacterial production of lots of good nutrients that the bacteria in this part of the colon provides to the colon itself as well as the body.
The left side of the colon is a bit more leisurely. For most of us there is, unfortunately, no acidity here, because most of the prebiotics we eat quickly get used up in the right side of the colon. In consequence different types of bacteria grow in the left colon, including the infamous ones that make the smelly, malodorous flatus smell the hydrogen sulfide gases.
So, what does this have to do with Prebiotin?
There are just 2 commonly known and well-researched prebiotics
OLIGOFRUCTOSE, because of its small structure molecule, gets fermented very quickly in the right colon. There is none or little left for feeding the bacteria in the left colon.
INULIN, on the other hand, is a larger molecule that is used up more slowly so that much of it ends up in the left colon.
How do we know this?
It is really very simple. After taking inulin, scientists measure the acidity in the left colon and find more of it. More important than this, a person can take Prebiotin and find that the malodorous smell of flatus clears, not the amount of flatus, but just the noxious smell. The reason for this is that the bacteria species that make these smelly sulfide gases need a neutral environment. When it becomes acid from Prebiotin, these bacteria do not grow. When flatus smell clears, the person knows that this healthy acidity action is occurring in the left colon.
The bottom line is that the Prebiotin formula has significant amounts of both oligofructose and of inulin. You get positive bacterial action throughout the colon. It is why we call this product a full-spectrum prebiotic formula. It is why medical researchers have overwhelmingly chosen this formula for their research. Products with just oligofructose or just inulin only give your colon half of what it really needs.
