Larch Arabinogalactan + 20% Dihydroquercetin – Gastrointestinal Support

As a fermentable prebiotic fiber, larch arabinogalactan increases friendly intestinal microflora such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus. Increased numbers of probiotic bacteria such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus positively alter the balance of intestinal microflora, as they inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, support better digestion, increase immune function and therefore resistance to infection. While the fermentation of larch arabinogalactan by intestinal bacteria increases their number and gastrointestinal health, it has an additional benefits. Larch arabinogalactan is fermented into short chain fatty acids and especially butyrate, which is critically important for the protection of the gastrointestinal mucosa and therefore large bowel function. It decreases the generation of ammonia, which is important because high levels of ammonia have been reported to be toxic to colon epithelial cells. Larch arabinogalactan also glowers the pH of the colon. All of the aforementioned processes plays a role in the protection against a variety of gastrointestinal diseases.

As our larch arabinogalactan is fortified with 20% dihydroquercetin, it not only functions as a prebiotic, lowers the pH of the colon, and decreases ammonia production, but it is also a strong flavonoid antioxidant. As such it has multiple benefits for the gastrointestinal systems. Flavonoid antioxidants have a protective effect on the gastrointestinal mucosa and to have anti-inflammatory effects in the gastrointestinal system. Gastritis is associated with oxidative stress. Flavonoid antioxidants have been shown to be beneficial in controlling gastritis, to decrease the severity of Helicobacter pylori infections, decrease gastric injury by aspirin and NSAID drugs, as well as, to decrease the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease. As the strongest known flavonoid antioxidant, dihydroquercetin helps protect the gastrointestinal systems from any oxidative insults.
