Simply put, prebiotics work much like fertilisers in a garden. They are types of non-digestible complex carbohydrates that are found in a variety of foods and supplements that feed the ‘good’ types of bacteria in the gut, such as bifidobacteria and unlike probiotics, do not contain any ‘live’ bacteria.
Prebiotics feed the ‘good bacteria’ that live in the gut, as well as any probiotic bacteria that we take as a supplement.
The term “microbiome” means a community of microbes, including bacteria, and you might be surprised to learn that our body has a few. There are microbiomes in areas such as the skin, the mouth and hair follicles– and there is a gut microbiome. When we talk about ‘gut health’, we are usually referring to this ecosystem of bacteria, as well as our intestinal environment.
Bacteria live throughout the human body, but the 100 trillion that live in the digestive system that makes up your gut microbiome are thought to have the biggest impact on health. As well as playing a role in digestion and gastrointestinal health, the gut microbiome is linked to important areas of physical and mental well-being, such as immunity, mental health and cognition – even how well we sleep.

Bimuno and all food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Days 4-7: You may start to feel some slight gurgling in your tummy. This is a good sign as it means Bimuno is beginning to reset your gut microbiome (the bacteria in your gut).

With daily use, the majority of Bimuno users experience an increase in their gut bifidobacteria within 7 days, although individual responses may vary.
What's in Bimuno®?
Bimuno products contain a mixture of unique, patent-protected galactooligosaccharides (GOS), which has been scientifically proven to stimulate the growth of beneficial bifidobacteria also known as bifidobacteria in the gut. Galactooligosaccharides (GOS), are derived from lactose, a natural ingredient in cow’s milk. When taken daily, Bimuno works within just 7 days*.
*results may vary
Bimuno contains lactose. However, the lactose content is well below the level that is that considered safe in most lactose-intolerant people by the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

The recommended intake of Bimuno Immunity for children aged 4-14 is to take half a sachet/3.25g per day. Young children should always take Bimuno under the supervision of an adult.
If you have any pre-existing medical condition, we recommend you consult your doctor or other health care professional prior to using any of our products.
There are currently no scientific studies on the safety and efficacy of Bimuno GOS in people with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and therefore we cannot comment on its use in this condition. We recommend you consult your doctor or other health care professional prior to using any of our products.
Bimuno Original and Bimuno Immunity are safe to take if you are suffering from IBS, but we recommend that you discuss any concerns with your doctor or another healthcare practitioner before use. Due to the condition itself, you may find you have a more sensitive stomach and so we recommend reducing your daily intake of Bimuno to half a sachet for at least the first 7 days.
There have been no formal clinical studies to assess the impact of Bimuno GOS on sleep patterns, although some of our customers have reported a positive impact on their sleep and you can review their feedback here [bimuno reviewed by Customer on 03/01/2023 (trustpilot.com)]
Dr Moseley also spoke on his BBC program “The Truth About Sleep” about how his use of Bimuno original (previously Bimuno Daily) has improved his sleep patterns whilst taking it in the evening before going to sleep.

About Informed Sport
Informed Sport is a quality assurance programme for sports nutrition products. The “Informed Sport” logo confirms that the product has been through a rigorous certification process and every batch produced is tested for banned substances by LGC’s world class sports anti-doping laboratory before it is released for sale.
We regularly receive interest in Bimuno from Performance Nutritionists who are looking to recommend a high-fibre prebiotic to their clients - many of whom are professional athletes and therefore must ensure that products they use are Informed-Sport certified.
Sports individuals, often have sensitive stomachs due to intense training, restricted diets, stress and overseas travel and as a result, may have an increased focus on their gut microbiome. Like most individuals in the UK population, it is possible that their fibre intake through diet may not meet the minimum recommended amount of 30g per day, so they choose our award-winning high-fibre prebiotic as an addition to their diet.
An athlete’s diet can be very restricted with a controlled energy intake, focusing on important nutrients within a daily calorie allowance.
Protein, important for tissue repair and muscle growth is a common nutrient that sports individuals may look to consume in high quantities. Whilst protein is great for these important structural functions, other nutrients, such as fibre can be neglected and not consumed in adequate quantities which can impact the gut microbiome. 
Fibre, on the other hand, is known to provide fuel for the types of bacteria we need for good gut health but dietary intake is often low. A study found that athletes consumed only 34% of their daily fibre requirement. 
Although exercise alone is shown to have a positive effect on the gut microbiome , eating the recommended amount of fibre is also necessary for good gut health.
Our Bimuno products work best when taken as daily food supplements as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Your gut also functions best when it has a continual supply of healthy prebiotics fuelling the good bacteria’s that support your gut health and beyond.
