Did you know that Fibretone has been redesigned and is now even more effective? The new and improved Fibretone now has double the fibre, plus liver herbs and amino acids. That means Fibretone is not only effective for improving bowel health; it also helps to support healthy liver function.
Fibretone comes as a 200 gram powder and you can have one or two teaspoons per day. It has a pleasant neutral taste and therefore can be easily incorporated into your favourite foods such as smoothies, cereal, porridge or yoghurt.
Fibretone is gluten free and is high in gentle fibre. It is not habit forming and does not weaken the bowel. Fibretone is safe to use long term and your body will not become dependent on it.
Ingredients of Fibretone
Fibretone contains a blend of psyllium, the amino acids taurine and glycine, plus the liver herbs St Mary’s thistle and dandelion.
Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the plant Plantago ovata. Psyllium absorbs a great deal of water in the intestinal tract and takes on a spongy texture. Psyllium helps to soften the stool and it has a cleansing action on the walls of the colon; helping to remove dried faecal matter. Because it swells inside the intestines, psyllium also helps to make you feel more full and satisfied after meals.
Taurine and glycine
The production of bile involves the conjugation (binding) of cholesterol to one of two amino acids – glycine or taurine. These amino acids are both found in protein rich foods such as poultry, seafood, eggs and meat. Vegetarians may not obtain sufficient levels of these amino acids in their diet for optimal liver health. If you suffer with poor digestion, you may not be absorbing them adequately. Also, if the amount of cholesterol in your body is relatively high, there may be inadequate levels of glycine and taurine in your body to compensate.
Taking a supplement that contains taurine and glycine can help to improve the production of healthy bile. It will also help with the removal of excess cholesterol from your body.
Dandelion root and St Mary’s thistle
Dandelion root stimulates the gallbladder to contract and release bile into the small intestine. Therefore it has a cleansing effect on the gallbladder and improves fat digestion. That makes dandelion root excellent for anyone with nausea, indigestion or bloating after eating oily food. Dandelion leaves have a bitter flavour and are a healthy addition to salads, but the root is much more powerful.
St Mary’s thistle is arguably the most famous herb when it comes to improving liver health. St Mary’s thistle stimulates bile production in the liver and in that way has a cleansing and flushing effect on the liver and the bile ducts that travel throughout your liver. For this reason, the herb is excellent for helping to prevent stone formation in the bile ducts within the liver, in people with or without a gallbladder.
St Mary’s thistle also has some remarkable healing effects on the liver. It has hepatoprotective and hepatorestorative properties. That means it protects liver cells against harm caused by toxins, and it even helps to repair damaged liver cells. Liver cells are called hepatocytes, so you can understand how those terms originated.
St Mary’s thistle also has lipotropic properties; that means it helps the liver to burn fat more efficiently, and especially helps to clear fat deposits within the liver. That means it is brilliant for anyone with a fatty liver. Fatty liver and gallstones often occur hand in hand, particularly in women.
