Colonic bacteria utilize soluble fiber and other undigested carbohydrates as food and subsequently create short-chain fatty acids, which are used by the colonic mucosal cells as fuel. In turn, the short-chain fatty acids liberated by these bacteria can lower colonic pH and shorten transit time in the gastroin inal tract, which enhances detoxification and reduces the toxic burden on the liver.* Medibulk contains psyllium, pectin, and prune powder as sources of soluble fiber.

Anaerobic fermentation of the soluble non-starch polysaccharides in psyllium results in the production of important short-chain fatty acids in the in ines.* One of these fatty acids, butyric acid, is the preferred fuel for colonocytes (mucosal cells of the colon) and provides important support for a healthy colon.* In one study, subjects supplemented with 20 grams of psyllium seed daily for three months exhibited an average increase of butyric acid production of 42 percent, which decreased to pretreatment levels within two months of stopping supplementation.

Soluble fiber also has a positive impact in supporting the metabolism of cholesterol and maintaining already healthy blood sugar levels.* Other indications for supplementing with Medibulk include occasional constipation or diarrhea, the need for colon detoxification, soothing of hemorrhoids, appetite control, and support of colon health.*

Prior to embarking on a detoxification program it is important to achieve optimal bowel function. Medibulk can speed transit time in the bowel and bind toxins released into the in ines from the liver, preventing their reabsorption.*
