Phloe™ is a 100% natural Kiwi fruit extract that is clinically shown to support regularity and long term digestive health.* With a unique triple action, Phloe™ combines naturally occurring prebiotics, enzymes and fiber to support both short-term and long-term digestive function.*
Kiwi fruit (Actinidia deliciosa) has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to enhance lower bowel function.* Phloe™ contains a naturally occurring cysteine/serine protease enzyme complex isolated from New Zealand kiwi fruit and enhanced through a special process. This complex, called Zyactinase™ is comprised of plant enzymes, polyphenols, dietary fiber, carbohydrates, sugars and oligosaccharides.
Zyactinase™ benefits bowel function in three primary ways:
1. The enzymes stimulate motility of waste gently through the digestive tract, with no side effects such as cramping, spasms or diarrhea.* They also assist the body to absorb nutrients from food, and this digestive action also helps waste move through the digestive tract.
2. The oligosaccharides, sugars and carbohy-drates serve as prebiotics, nourishing the pop-ulation of beneficial intestinal bacteria, and helping to restore the balance of gut micro-flora and protect the digestive wall.* Besides providing food for the good bacteria, they also can help inhibit undesirable bacteria.*
3. The small amount of fiber in Phloe™ provides bulk and moisture to the stool, which helps it move through the digestive tract more comfortably.* Unlike psyllium and other fiber products, which can make the stool bulky and fluffy, Phloe™ typically makes the stool smaller and less fluffy, more representative of a normal, healthily functioning digestive and eliminative system.*
The combination of enzymes, prebiotics and fiber has both short and long term protective effects on the GI tract.* Besides enhancing regularity, Phloe™ addresses the three key components of a healthy gastrointestinal system: enzymes support motility and digestion, prebiotics promote beneficial gut microflora and protect the digestive wall, and fiber adds bulk to the stool.* Phloe™ provides these three components of ongoing gastro-intestinal health, while promoting a mild softening of the stool in a gentle and sustained manner.* Even at high doses, it does not cause diarrhea, urgency or cramping.*
Often significant benefits occur within the first few days of consumption of Phloe™, likely due to the protease complex and fiber gently stimulating gut motility.* The prebiotic effect typically begins to help balance the gut microflora after 1-3 weeks of use.* For most users, Phloe™ can be taken long term and will continue to gently support motility without over-stimulation.*
Phloe™ is safe for diabetics, having just 1/3 gram of natural fruit sugar per capsule. Phloe™ is also safe for those with IBS, and should be started at a low dose and slowly increased to find the best dose.
Extensive toxicological and safety testing has shown that Phloe™ is extremely safe for humans. It is not recommended for those with Kiwi allergy. The only side effect noted is a very rare incidence of hives, due to allergic response to kiwifruit.
