How important are intestinal bacteria (micro-flora)?

They are essential in keeping you alive and bacteria outnumber your cells 10 to 1 helping digestion.

And where do you find these bacteria?

Majority are on the mucosal wall of your intestinal tract and 60% lymphocytes are embedded in these intestinal mucosa plates. Bifidus bacteria cling onto the intestinal mucosa wall and protect your nervous and immune system against invaders, fighting off the disease causing bacteria, and also prevent toxin from seeping through the membrane into the bloodstream.

What important role does bacteria play in the intestinal tract?

They perform many important functions such as DIGESTION by helping you break down food into smaller, more bioavailable nutrients that your cells can utilize. They produce beneficial substances such as vitamins and short chain fatty acids (SCFA) which help to stimulate bowel movement, keeping your colon clean. They also inhibit harmful bacteria and metabolise away toxin.

How to keep an optimal balance of good bacteria to bad bacteria?

Feed them Isomalto oligosaccharide. Isomalto Oligosaccharide is a Prebiotic. One of its most important characteristic: the human digestive system has a hard time breaking it down and almost 90% escapes digestion in the small intestine and reaches the colon where it performs its prebiotic function, where it becomes food for certain beneficial bacteria in the colon.

Prebiotics are natural fibers that ferment in the gut

and create an optimal environment for probiotics (the good bacteria in your gut that help digest foods and fight off illness-causing bacteria) to live in. Without a diet high enough in fermentable fibers, the good bacteria will ultimately not have a suitable place to “live”, and will be rendered ineffective.

Isomalto oligosaccharide

can restore your microflora balance

to an optimal ratio.


Isomalto Oligosaccharide

  1. Provides nutrients and stimulates the growth of friendly bacteria, (particularly the Bifidus species) that are living naturally in the gastrointestinal tract.
  2. Which harmful bacteria cannot digest, can selectively increase the friendly bacteria colony and its ratio.
  3. Is not digestible and hardly converts to calorie. It will not cause glucose content to rise in the blood, making it suitable for diabetic patient and people on diet.
  4. Restores microflora balance.


  1. Relieves constipation, stimulates bowel movements, increase in stool mass.
  2. Reduces body odour and bad breath.
  3. Lower cholesterol (LDL), lower triglycerides.
  4. Improves stomach disorder such as diarrhoea.
  5. Promotes intestinal hygiene.
  6. Improves insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism.
  7. Improves immune system function.
  8. Stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria, which suppress the activity of putrefactive bacteria, such as Clostridium in the colon.
  9. Production of vitamins by increased activity of healthy gut bacteria.
  1. Protects the liver by reducing the production of toxic metabolites.
  2. Improves absorption of calcium and other minerals.
  3. Clean up the “pollution” in the body and less toxin in the bloodstream.
  4. Improves your fundamental health condition, stronger, less prone to sickness, better nutrition absorption hence less prone to fatigue.
  5. Reduces effects of allergy in short term. Long term, less prone to allergy.
  6. Reduces the risk of colon cancer.
  7. Skin complexion improves over time due to better cell metabolism.

5 What can bacteria do 6 points (English)

What can friendly bacteria do?

  • Friendly bacteria ferment IMO and produce lactic acid and different fatty acids as digestive by-products, which help to lower the pH level in the colon, inhibiting the proliferation of harmful species of bacteria and facilitating that of helpful species.
  • The organic acids produced help to stimulate bowel movement and relieve constipation.
  • Friendly bacteria create an acidic environment which enhance the absorption of mineral, thus help to improve the absorption of calcium among elderly people.
  • Friendly bacteria produce and discharge vitamin K2, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid and pantothenic acid as by-product waste, which complement your vitamin lack.
  • Friendly bacteria help digestion by producing enzymes that metabolize protein into absorbable amino acids. These key enzymes also transport key vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to cells that need them.
