ProLon &
Gut Health

The term ‘gut instinct’ is more relevant than ever. Numerous studies confirm the importance of gut health for overall physical and mental wellness; and it all starts with the gut microbiome. This collection of trillions of microbes and their genetic material live inside the digestive tract. A healthy microbiome and “good” bacteria in the gut have been linked to a number of positive health outcomes, including supporting healthy immune function, healthy weight, and mental health, and supports post-meal sugar absorption. In fact, the microbiome is so essential to the function of our bodies it has been deemed to be an organ itself.

ProLon's fiber &
Gut Health

Fiber is another key nutrient that supports gut health. The recommended daily intake for fiber is 25 grams per day for women and 38 grams for men, with the average Daily Value (DV) for adults set at 28 grams. Each ProLon soup provides up to 18% of the DV for fiber, and each L-bar supplies up to 14% of the DV. ProLon is a good source of fiber with a total daily fiber content ranging from 15 to 25 grams vs. the recommended daily intake of 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men, which may be an increase for many ProLon users, as Americans generally take in about half of the advised daily target.

Because fiber helps move stool through the GI tract, it supports healthy digestive function and regularity. Fiber from inulin may also maintain satiety and support weight control. ProLon is a good source of fiber during fasting, and surveys have shown that users find it easier to adopt a healthy eating pattern after use, so continuance of a fiber-rich diet may be easier as we strive for these benefits.
