Fibrosol Prebio is now ADVAGEN Prebio. New Name, Same Product

How it Works

ADVAGEN Prebio works by moving down the digestive tract and being resistant to changes while moving through the small intestine. It then gets fermented in the large intestine. Its water binding capacity draws water to the stools, softening them and making it easier to pass out.

Physiological Process



After being consumed, ADVAGEN Prebio moves down the digestive tract and does not get broken down in the small intestine.
When it reaches the colon (large intestines), due to its water binding capacity, it draws water in and causes softening of the stools.
At the same time in the colon, fermentation of ADVAGEN Prebio occurs and results in the production of Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs), gas and growth of healthy bacteria.
The release of SCFAs causes chemical stimulation of the peristaltic reflex and the contractions reduce intestinal transit time resulting in faster movements of bowels.
Fermentation of ADVAGEN Prebio also produces gas and healthy bacteria which increase the bowel content and fecal bulk. This in turn helps bowel movement.*

Chemical Structure

ADVAGEN Prebio is a unique soluble dietary fiber produced from starch by the combination of dextrinization and enzymatic treatments.
ADVAGEN Prebio has well-developed branched chemical structure composed of not only 1-4 and 1-6 but also 1-2 and 1-3 glucosidic linkages.
The branched structure is resistant to human digestive enzymes and not absorbed in the small intestine. Therefore, ADVAGEN Prebio reaches the large intestine, and is then partially fermented, with the residual unutilized excreted.
ADVAGEN Prebio contains 90% soluble dietary fiber (AOAC Official Method 2001.03).
