Three ingredients in PaleoFiber® RS—two resistant starch (RS) and arabinogalactan—are fermentable, which confers them with prebiotic properties. RS is metabolized by colonic bacteria into short chain fatty acids such as propionate, butyrate, acetate and lactate. The fermentation of RS and other fibers results in a lowering of colon pH, which makes this environment unfavorable for many pathogens. Studies with RS supplementation have revealed that RS promotes increases in several bacterial populations (Bifidobacteria, Actinobacteria and Bacteroidetes, Ruminococcus bromii, Eubacterium rectale) while diminishing populations of detrimental pathogens (E.coli, Pseudomonas, firmicutes). PaleoFiber® RS may benefit individuals with:
- Low fiber, low carbohydrate and/or high fat diets
- Dysbiosis; diarrhea; constipation
- Intestinal permeability; malabsorption syndromes
- Inflammatory bowel conditions
- Dysregulated glucose management; dyslipidemia
- Excess body fat
