Ingredient in the Spotlight: Larch Arabinogalactan offers Digestive and Immune Support

One of the 4 soluble fibers found in Gut Garden’s Resistant Starch Prebiotic Fiber Blend is Larch Arabinogalactan. What is it and why did we include it in our blend? Larch Arabinogalactan is a natural extract from larch trees that has been proven to have powerful digestive and immune benefits.

Digestive Benefits

The longest recognized use of Larch Arabinogalactan is probably as a source of dietary fiber. As a prebiotic, it acts as food for friendly bacteria, and has been shown to increase the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA's), principally butyrate and proprionate. These SCFAs are critical to the health of the colon. They protect the intestinal lining against disease and cancer promoting agents by providing the main energy source for the colonic cells and increasing beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus. Larch Arabinogalactan is essentially a wonderful way to balance the microflora protect the gastrointestinal tract in general.

Promotes Healthy Immune System

While Larch Arabinogalactan has a huge impact on digestive health, it has received even more attention for its ability to promote the health of our immune system. Some recent research has concluded:

Gut Garden's resistant starch prebiotic fiber blend is a mix of raw unmodified potato starch and 4 soluble fiber types. Resistant starch has been shown to work best when paired with a diverse array of other soluble fibers.

Prebiotics are the preferred food source for beneficial bacteria, where they digest and form short chain fatty acids that are responsible for a host of benefits:

  • Weight Loss
  • Reduction in Inflammation
  • Improvement in symptoms of IBS and IBD
  • Balanced blood sugar and improvement in insulin sensitivity
  • Reduction in anxiety and depression
  • Repairs to "leaky gut"
  • Increased absorption of nutrients

Q. How long will this bottle last?

A. Each bottle has 30 full servings. However, if you're new to taking prebiotics, we suggest starting with about a quarter serving and working your way up slowly until you can tolerate a full scoop. So depending on your tolerance each bottle should last one month or longer.

Q. How does it taste?

A. This product is unflavored.

Q. Does this come in capsule form?

A. No, only powder form.

Q. Will this product dissolve in hot liquids?

A. The product will dissolve in liquids. However, we don't advise mixing it with a warm beverage because there is evidence that heat will degrade the resistant starch properties.
