Having a healthy gut is all about having good gut flora. And, having good gut flora is all about feeding your microbiota with a good quality prebiotic fibre supplement like Kfibre.

Prebiotic fibres escape digestion and continue along the gastrointestinal tract to the colon where they are fermented by the healthy gut flora that live there. Feeding this gut flora keeps it healthy and results in the production of short chain fatty acids which keep you regular in the bathroom, maintain integrity of the gut wall and even help with glucose metabolism, cholesterol and gut health.

Of course, having good gut flora also needs to taste good! And, what’s better than a refreshing smoothie for breakfast or a snack.
