How Does Bimuno® Work?

Bimuno® is an non-digestible fibre that is not absorbed into your system, it passes through the upper gastro-intestinal tract unchanged until it reaches the colon.  It is here that your good gut bacteria ferment the Bimuno®, thereby further stimulating their own growth and activity and competing with the bad bacteria. 

This helps to provide your gut with a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria, thereby positively influencing your digestive health, overall health and general wellbeing. It is ultimately the natural growth of the good bacteria and the affect that this has in your gut and on the rest of your body that helps to improve your health. 

The timing of this rebalancing of the gut bacteria averages around 7 days*, but all of us are individuals and therefore the timing may be different for you.  Some people may experience effects within two to three days of taking Bimuno®, for others this may take longer than 7 days and there are certain individuals who may not notice any changes at all.

How will I know if Bimuno® is working?

There is no simple answer to this question as we are all unique, with our own make up of gut bacteria.  The human body is extremely complex and for a myriad of reasons, which may also be interlinked, we all respond differently to everything that we ingest in our daily diets, whether this is food, drink, supplements, or medications.  What we do know is that the constitution of the gut bacteria is linked to many illnesses and disorders.  The gut microbiota plays a major role in our general health, immunity and even influences the functioning of the brain. The important factor in all of this is the maintenance of a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

If you are taking Bimuno® because you are having troubles with your digestive health or you suffer from symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or other functional gut disorders such as bloating and abdominal discomfort, then you may be one of the people who will experience a noticeable improvement in your specific symptoms, as well as your overall digestive health and general wellbeing.  We have many customers who comment that Bimuno® has made a difference to their ailments and that this has dramatically improved their quality of life, particularly through a reduction in troublesome symptoms.  This may have an impact on many aspects of our daily lives, including physical, mental and social wellbeing.

A number of regular Bimuno® users who do not have any specifically diagnosed disorders or illnesses, but who are generally feeling out of sorts (lethargic or run down, stressed or anxious and sleeping badly), have noticed that after taking Bimuno®, they have a bit more spring in their step.  Our customers tell us that their dietary habits have improved and that they feel more satisfied after eating, they feel calmer or less anxious and have more energy during the day, or even sleep better at night.  These changes may not necessarily be completely tangible or medically measurable, but they do give one a general sense of positive changes in overall health and wellbeing, with improved quality of life. Again, as we are all different, there may be many different responses and the experience of taking Bimuno® will be unique for each one of us.
