- Promotes natural immune function.*
- Contain 1.5 billion CFU guaranteed at time of expiration.
What are probiotics and prebiotics?
Probiotics are dietary good or friendly bacteria, live microorganisms that are also present in in the healthy human gut. Probiotics can support healthy populations of gut bacteria and provide health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts.*
Prebiotics are nondigestible nutrients that stimulate the growth and/or activity of good bacteria in the digestive system. Prebiotics are typically dietary fibers.
What's the benefit of using a slimstick instead of capsule?
One of the best benefits is that is can be taken with or without food or beverage any time of day. The powder form also allows for a greater serving size, which means the product can deliver more probiotics and prebiotics in each serving. GI-ProBalance slimsticks contain 15 billion colony forming units (CFU) at the time of manufacture and 1.5 billion at the date of expiration.
How are GI-ProBalance slimsticks different from GI-Zyme® capsules?
Mannatech's GI-ProBalance slimsticks are a probiotic and prebiotic supplement formulated to contribute to a balance of natural healthy gut flora, which in turn supports healthy digestion and natural immune function.*
Mannatech's GI-Zyme capsules contain enzymes that are formulated to help to break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates more efficiently so they can be more easily digested.*
How does GI-ProBalance powder enhance the benefits of Ambrotose products?
In vitro research suggests there may be an additive effect when GI-ProBalance powder is combined with Advanced Ambrotose or classic Ambrotose complex products. The arabinogalactan in the Ambrotose products may be broken down and utilized by specific bacteria present in GI-ProBalance powder. At the same time, arabinogalactan is a prebiotic that has been shown to support the growth and proliferation of specific bacteria found in our GI-ProBalance product. The expected result is enhanced support from both products.*
Why do GI-ProBalance slimsticks contain soy?
While soy is not an ingredient in the product, it was a part of the source medium in which the bacteria strains are grown; therefore, the product may contain trace amounts of soy.
Why do GI-ProBalance slimsticks contain maltodextrin?
The maltodextrin in GI-ProBalance slimsticks serves as a flow agent and helps to give the product its powder consistency. This ingredient makes the product easy to package for the manufacturer and easy to pour and mix for the end consumer.
There are two types of maltodextrin commonly available. One is an easily digested high-glycemic grade, while the other is a low-glycemic, digestive-resistant, soluble fiber commonly known by the brand name Fibersol-2. It’s this second low-glycemic version that is used in the production of GI-ProBalance powder, and it's actually a source of fiber that can provide health benefits when consumed in adequate quantities.*
