Psyllium husks, which come from the cleansing plantain psyllium, are rich in fibre and able to absorb more than 20 times their own weight in fluid, ideal to help the movement of waste through the digestive system. The psyllium used in lepicol is 98% pure and is the highest grade available.
Lactobacillus acidophilus and lactobacillus bifidum bacteria (bifidum longum, bifidum breve, bifidum infantis) (probiotics), known as the friendly bacteria are vital to a healthy colon. The inclusion of healthy bacteria in Lepicol plays an important part in the overall programme of keeping the colon healthy. Fructo-oligosaccharides (prebiotics) are extracted from chicory and have been shown to extend the life of the lactobacillus bacteria. Recent research in Japan and the USA has shown how Fructo-oligosaccharides can sustain intestinal flora and enhance bifidobacteria population.
