Gentle Fibers Gentle Fibers
  • Improves intestinal function
  • Accelerates the intestinal transit time
  • Aids in constipation
  • Prevents the retention of gastric contents
  • Stimulates the growth of beneficial microflora
  • Helps increase insulin sensitivity
  • Helps maintain healthy blood lipid levels
  • Supports healthy cardiovascular function
  • Protects against infections and harmful microorganisms
  • Increases the protection against colon cancer

Jarrow Gentle Fibers is a formula with a high-quality blend of soluble and insoluble fractions of dietary fibre in a convenient powder form.

The supplement promotes healthy digestive function (helps combat constipation, promotes the growth of beneficial microflora and aids in losing body weight) and influences positively the functioning of the cardiovascular system (helps stabilise blood cholesterol and sugar levels) and the immune system (strengthens immunity and prevents infections).

Dietary fibre, otherwise known as roughage, refers to a big and diverse group of substances which are resistant to digestion and absorption in the human small intestine. They are only partially hydrolised by colon bacteria. This group includes, among others, polysaccharides (cellulose, hemicellulose, pectins, natural gums and mucilage) and non-polysaccharides (lignins and indigestible lipids – plant waxes).

Soluble and insoluble fibre – properties
Due to characteristic properties of specific fibre fractions, it is divided mainly in terms of solubility – to soluble and insoluble in water.

Soluble fibre is fermented by colon microflora. It helps treat constipation, stimulates the differentiation and proliferation of intestinal epithelial cells, promotes the growth of beneficial microflora, aids in maintaining a normal pH in the intestines and may be an element of preventive healthcare for colon cancer.

Insoluble fibre fractions contribute to improving the intestinal transit, increasing the volume of gastric contents and the amount of toxins and metabolic by-products excreted through the digestive tract.

Sources of soluble fractions of dietary fibre in the formula are flax seeds, orange pulp and peel, arab gum arabic, fructooligosaccharides (inulin) whereas insoluble dietary fibre is provided by chia seeds and flax, which is also a source of the first fraction.

Chia seeds are characterised by a relatively high content of dietary fibre which comprises mainly insoluble fibre. Its main ingredient is Klason lignin which has been proven scientifically to regulate parameters of the lipid profile, primarily due to the ability to bind bile acids and hypolipidemic properties.

Flax is an excellent source of dietary fibre, both insoluble (lignin and cellulose) and soluble (mucilage, gums and pectins). The ratio of soluble to insoluble fibre in flax seeds is about 40:60.

The fibre in flax seeds absorbs water. Because of that, it swells up when it is consumed with food, thereby promoting satiety and thus curbing cravings for food. It shows therefore laxative properties and increases stool volume, consequently reducing constipation.

What is more, flax seeds contain approximately 800 times more lignans than any other vegetable sources. Lignans help maintain normal levels of steroid hormones, both when they are elevated (protects against high oestrogen levels by reducing the incidence of hormone-dependent cancer – mainly breast and ovarian cancer) and too low (has a mild oestrogenic effect – relieves menopausal symptoms and prevents osteoporosis).

Guar gum is a natural substance derived from beans of the plant Cyamopsis tetragonolobus  which is a source of a soluble fraction of dietary fibre. It helps stabilise blood pressure and blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It is also important in the treatment of type 2 diabetes – aids in maintaining normal blood sugar levels.

Inulin is a natural polysaccharide which belongs to fructooligosaccharides. It is referred to as a soluble fraction of dietary fibre. Owing to the presence of a β-2,1-glycosidic bond, inulin is not digested in the digestive tract. It is a nutrient for bifidobacteria that are responsible for maintaining healthy intestinal flora. Because of that, it is called a prebiotic. Since it undergoes fermentation, whose products are short-chain fatty acids (propionic, butyric and acetic acid), it prevents the proliferation of harmful bacteria, such as e.g. Salmonella and E. coli.

Inulin demonstrates also hypoglycaemic and antiatherosclerotic properties (lowers cholesterol levels).

To sum up, Jarrow Gentle Fibers is a formula which has many effects – promotes healthy intestines and improves their function, stimulates the growth of beneficial microflora and also supports healthy cardiovascular and immune function.

It is recommended primarily to individuals who struggle with irregular bowel movements or constipation and may be also used by persons with overweight. The supplement may be also used as an element of preventive healthcare for diabetes, atherosclerosis, hyperlidemia and colon cancer.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.

 

Fat

Information

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.


 

Protein

Information

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine ​​in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)


 

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Flaxseed

Information

Flaxseed, in powder form, it has versatile uses in folk medicine, the reasons for the action of protecting and soothing especially in the area of the gastrointestinal tract and digestive (preferably affects the intestinal peristalsis). It is a rich source of biologically active components: fatty acids from the omega 3 series (alpha-linolenic acid-), the mucus (arabinoxylans, rhamnogalacturonans), protein, micronutrients (zinc, magnesium, iron). It is used in the prevention of atherosclerosis, by affecting the regulation of cholesterol. Used in blends of nutrients and supplements stimulating the digestive system, available at the www.muscle-zone.pl

Inulin

Information

Inulin (dietary fibre soluble in water) belonging to the polysaccharides, present in the natural state in plant tissues storing energy relationship, which affect on the development of intestinal microflora (I.e. Probiotic) and the condition of the gastrointestinal tract and digestive organs (intestines). It has a high bioavailability of minerals (including calcium and magnesium), reduces the growth rate of glucose after meals. Inulin, is not digested by the human body, but it is degraded into short chain fatty acids by lactic acid bacteria growing in the intestines. In the dietary supplementation it is used as insoluble dietary fibre supporting high-protein diets, for example, during weight loss.
