BIOintestil® is an innovative and natural ingredient, patented and distributed exclusively by Fagron Italy, for the formulation of food supplements for optimal health and wellness of the digestive system.
Its patented formulation is composed of pulverized rhizome of Zingiber officinale Roscoe naturally rich in gingerols on which essential oils are adsorbed titrated in the individual components, such as geraniol, for an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action, selective against intestinal pathogens, but also with carminative and antiemetic effects.
Geraniol, naturally present in BIOintestil® acts as an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase COX-2 resulting in inhibition of local inflammation mediators and as a natural antidysbiotic action, selectively inhibiting the growth of a broad spectrum of pathogenic bacteria.
Ginger, thanks to the action of 6-gingerol on cyclooxygenase COX-2 and lipoxygenase reduces inflammation and increases intestinal motility, stimulating digestion and simultaneously eliminating constipation and intestinal gas. In addition, the dried ginger rhizome is indicated as an antiemetic.
Optimized and patented formulation
BIointestil® has been formulated with a patented technological process deposited in Europe.
The patent covers:
• the use of essential oils or their individual components adsorbed on vegetable fiber in order to release the active substances of BIOintestil® in the colon.
• The mixing process that optimizes the powder, making it more easily to manipulate and encapsulate.
Clinical study and dosage
