Intestamine provides an exclusive blend of the amino acids glutamine and glucosamine along with fructooligiosaccharides and fibre. The source of fibre, Acacia fibre, is derived from Acacia senegal, a thorny tree native to Africa and India. Fibre has numerous beneficial effects on the body. Acacia fibre is a soluble, non-bulking agent which can be fermented by the microflora to acetic, propionic and butyric short-chain fatty acids.
These short-chain fatty acids may act as an energy source to the existing microbiotia present in the small intestine. Unlike Acacia fibre, NutraFlora FOS has the ability to pass through the small intestine into the colon without being digested or altered in any way.
