Globally, we are suffering from a 'FIBRE DEFICIT'. Study after study, and leading government health authorities tell us this.

WE ARE MISSING THE FIBRE 'FUEL' THAT OUR GUT REQUIRES TO EFFICIENTLY PRODUCE THE GOOD BACTERIA THAT HELP KEEP US HEALTHY.

The U.S. Office for Disease Protection and Health Promotion (https://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015/guidelines/) states that the fibre gap in the U.S. looks like this:






NOVAGREEN XOS provides a FABULOUSLY EFFICIENT WAY TO GET THE FIBRE YOU (or your pet) NEED to hit the recommended daily intake, and maintain a HEALTHIER IMMUNE SYSTEM.  

The video in the following link, provided by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP), illustrates the value of Prebiotics:  https://isappscience.org/resources/isapp-videos/ 

Let's Talk 'Gut' Here

XOS

Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) is a ‘dietary fibre’, or 'functional food fibre' and is considered a prebiotic. Prebiotics in effect act as 'food' that grow healthy bacteria in your lower gastrointestinal tract (GI)




Healthy bacteria in your GI has numerous positive effects on your entire body. For example, it helps:  


  • strengthen your body's immune system,
  • improve the absorption of essential food nutrients such as calcium, iron, and other important minerals
  • inhibit ‘bad bacteria’ and carcinogenic (cancer) development in your intestine,
  • lower your cholesterol levels,

THE GI (Your 'Gut') : AN AMAZING SYSTEM AND ORGAN THAT…….

  • Produces and circulates eight liters of fluids daily;
  • Manufactures about a half-gallon of hydrochloric acid daily;
  • Protects itself by creating a fresh mucous coat every two weeks;
  • Synthesizes 22 digestive enzymes;
  • Makes five hormones;
  • Has a nutrient absorptive area approximately the size of a tennis court (2,100 sq. ft., or 195 sq. m.)


The GI tract itself is an organ of the immune system. It houses 70% of the entire immune system in gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). 80% of plasma cells responsible for antibody production reside in GALT.

As much as three pounds of microbes—100 trillion bacteria—reside in the human gut.

What Does This Mean For Me?


Fighting the 'FIBRE DEFICIT '

Why Should I Care?

  • improve the production of vitamin B,
  • reduce or prevent tooth decay,
  • improve your blood sugar, and
  • help your body improve fat metabolism (reducing fat storage in the body).​
