Having a healthy balance of friendly bacteria (probiotics) in the gut is thought to support good digestion, strong immunity, and energy levels. It is generally accepted that people with lower levels of good bacteria in the gut are more susceptible to various health conditions including bloating and constipation. Probiotics are microorganisms which are beneficial to the human body (and this is how they have earned the name 'friendly bacteria'). Prebiotics are the food source for the body's probiotics; they can be found in certain foods such as Jerusalem artichokes, leeks & onions. Prebiotics work by stimulating the growth of probiotics in the gut, and can act as roughage in the bowels.
Supplementing your levels of good bacteria with a high quality probiotic & prebiotic can be a positive sign in supporting your gut. Both the specific probiotic strain and the prebiotic in For maintaining regularity have been scientifically researched especially to help maintain healthy gut bacteria and to support bowel regularity.
Note: The high dose of prebiotic fibres in this product, fructooligosaccharides, may initially result in flatulence and/or bloating in some people.

If these side effects do continue for more than 3 - 4 days, consider reducing the dosage of For maintaining regularity before gradually building up again.
