FIBRE CLEANSING POWDER - 120G
CLEANSE, DIGEST & BUILD A HEALTHY GUT MICROBIOME
Getting your daily dose of FIBRE just got easier. This 100% all-natural powder helps cleanse, digest, and nourish your gut – building a healthy digestive system designed to thrive.
When it comes to supporting a good gut microbiome, prebiotics are just as important as probiotics – they feed all the healthy bacteria and help diversify your gut flora. What you might not know is that fibre is also essential for energy support, detoxification, lowering cholesterol, and maintaining hormonal health.
It is said that 7 out of 10 adults aren’t meeting their adequate daily fibre intake. Why? Because traditional fibre-rich powders and supplements tend to come along with a fairly undesirable taste, and getting enough from food alone is near impossible. The beauty of our FIBRE Superfood Powder is that it is flavourless, with zero calories and zero fat. The perfect addition to your day, FIBRE is super-versatile, easy, and effective.
Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Supplements may only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate. Please check with your doctor before taking supplements, starting or stopping any medication, or if you have any general concerns.

100% Maize Dextrin
Although there are microbiomes all over the body, the most important for overall health and wellbeing is the gut as this is central to almost every process in the body. Containing trillions of microorganisms with over 1000 known species of bacteria, a healthy gut microbiome is involved in:
Regulating gut inflammation that can cause or minimise subsequent systemic inflammation
Neurotransmitter synthesis – bacteria in the gut help produce neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, and acetylcholine, which regulate mood, cognition, and other important functions
Hormone synthesis, regulation, and clearance
Toxin/pathogen neutralisation and elimination
Digestive and metabolic processes – including energy production
Immune strength – over 70% of the immune system resides in the gut, within the Gut-Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT)
These compounds in food feed the living microorganism in your gut, encouraging a diverse range of good bacteria that outweighs the bad. It is important to note that there is always a level of “bad” bacteria in your gut, this is normal. It is the balance between these beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria strains that’s important. There are two types of fibre: insoluble and soluble. Both feed your gut bacteria, helping them to thrive and your digestive system to function at its best. Our FIBRE Cleansing Powder is made of 100% pure maize dextrin which is a form of soluble fibre.
Clinical studies have investigated the ingestion of soluble fibre showing that it bypasses digestion in the small intestine where 90% of most nutrients are absorbed. This allows the soluble fibre to travel further down the digestive tract so it can be fermented by bacteria in the large intestine. This bacterial fermentation process produces Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs), an important metabolite for many functions in the body. One of the main ones being its responsibility to feed mitochondria – the powerhouse of each cell that produces Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), otherwise known as energy!
Further studies have shown that hormonal health is highly dependent on fibre intake as it encourages hormone clearance through regular bowel movements. Excess or used hormones are broken down in the liver and excreted via bile through our stools. However, this bile must bind to fibre in order to be excreted from the body. A balance of healthy bacteria from adequate fibre intake is also important for deactivating oestrogen and other hormones (that have been used by the body) so that they are not reabsorbed into circulation.
