No side effects have been reported. You may experience stomach discomfort or diarrhea if taking in a large amount.
Yes. Oligosaccharides / inulin are classified as prebiotics. You should look for the labels of Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), inulin (a type of FOS)/ oligosaccharides.
Both fiber and prebiotics are typically non-digestible carbohydrates, and both are typically fermented by gut bacteria. However, a prebiotics differs from fiber in that it needs to be selectively used in the gut – by only beneficial members of the gut microbial immunity. In European Member States, chicory inulin and oligofructose are recognized and labeled as dietary fiber.
Of course! The amount of Chlorella in Verte do not fulfilled the daily requirements. It is best recommended to consume 5-10 tablets of Chlorella together with Verte for a maximum health benefits.
Yes, you may. Prebiotics can complement probiotic function.
Yes. Children have weaker immune and digestive system and it is recommended for children aged 5 and below to consume ½ to 1 sachet daily. In fact, there is addition of prebiotics to infant formula to promote good digestion and immune system.
Oligosaccharide or inulin is a natural soluble vegetable fiber (from chicory roots, leek, asparagus, and artichoke) with a low caloric value (low on glycemic index). It is suitable for diabetics because inulin does not stimulate insulin secretion.
You may take Verte for 30 days to enjoy its benefit. However, there is no harm taking Verte continuously as it is a health food.
Prebiotics are defined as “Non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacterial species already resident in the colon, and thus attempt to improve host health” (Gibson & Roberfroid, 1995). Prebiotics are simply speaking, the ‘food’ for beneficial bacteria.
An adequate amount of prebiotics have been shown to provide health benefits including improving digestion function and providing a good intestinal environment, increasing bifidobacteria (good bacteria), enhances immune system, and improved absorption of dietary minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Just take them at any time of the day. Suggest consume before meal to get a better result. Drink it immediately after mixing it into drinks.
