Phloe is a range of bowel health products derived entirely from New Zealand green kiwifruit, containing prebiotics, enzymes and fibre. Part of Douglas Pharmaceuticals’ range of Nutraceuticals (which also includes Clinicians), Phloe comes in both chewable tablets or capsules, enabling users to choose which format best suits their needs.
Phloe works in a number of ways to help regulate and ease digestive and bowel complaints. Prebiotics are the name given to a number of natural plant fibres that humans cannot digest, but which provide food to the good bacteria – known as probiotics – that live in our guts and enable our digestive tract to function healthily. This enables our probiotic colonies to flourish, and in turn helps to crowd out pathogenic bacteria and stop their proliferation.
The enzymes and fibre in Phloe help to bulk up stools and support optimal transit time through the colon, supporting the body’s natural elimination of waste and helping to reduce common discomforts such as constipation, cramping, flatulence and bloating.
The key ingredient in Phloe is known as zyactinase, a 100% natural kiwifruit derivative freeze-dried and processed to retain its digestive support properties.
Phloe™ Bowel Health Chewabletablets are a 100% natural digestive aid that is clinically shown to keep you regular, while supporting long term digestive health. More than simply fibre, Phloe™ Bowel Health is the first product to utilise a unique triple action from the combination of prebiotics, enzymes and fibre, all found naturally in kiwifruit, to help manage your digestive health in both the short and long term.

How does Phloe™ Bowel Health Work? Phloe™ Bowel Health's unique triple action complex supports a series of events that work in unison to promote short term regularity and the right balance of gut micro flora so that in the long run your digestive system works the way it is supposed to.
Enzymes: The enzymes in Phloe™ Bowel Health Chewable tablets work in two ways: Firstly, the enzymes stimulate motility (or movement) of waste gently through your digestive tract. This is a very gentle action, and unlike some other products on the market, has no nasty side effects (like cramping, spasms and diarrhoea). Secondly, the enzymes in Phloe™ Bowel Health are very similar to those produced naturally by your own digestive system helping you digest food so that waste moves more freely through the digestive tract. This enzyme digestion also aids with absorbing the optimum level of nutrients into yoursystem from the food you eat.
Fibre: The fibre in Phloe™ Bowel Health Chewable tablets works by providing bulk to your stool. Moisture is absorbed into the bowel and incorporated into the stool, which helps it move through the digestive tract more comfortably.
Prebiotics: The prebiotics in Phloe™ Bowel Health Chewable tablets aid in long term digestive health. Their main role is to provide food to nourish the good bacteria in your digestive tract, while also inhibiting the pathogenic (or bad) bacteria. This process has a dual effect: Firstly, it helps restore the balance of gut micro flora and helps protect the digestive wall so it can work normally. Secondly, if you have a low level of good bacteria in your system it means that your system may not be producing enough enzymes on its own to digest food properly. Encouraging the growth of the good bacteria encourages the growth of the enzymes so that you can continue to digest food the way you are supposed to. In the long run it is the prebiotics that will support the long term, proper functioning of their digestive system.
Triple Action Complex
Individually, enzymes, fibre and prebiotics are all very important elements of a healthy and effective digestive system. Phloe™ Bowel Health's triple action complex combines them into a single, extremely effective, digestive product. Used daily, you will not only address the short terms issues of regular movements, but you will also aid and support the long term health of your digestive system.
How does Phloe™ Bowel Health differ from fibre only supplements?
Fibre is an essential part of any diet because it acts as a bulking agent to assist waste move naturally through the digestive system. However, fibre alone cannot do the whole job.
While the fibre contained in Phloe™ Bowel Health helps bulk a stool in the same way as fibre only dietary supplements, it is the enzymes in the product that work to support motility and break food down. In addition, the prebiotics aid a return to a healthy balance of gut micro flora and therefore a healthy digestive system in the long run.
What can you expect when using Phloe™ Bowel Health?
Short Term Using Phloe™ Bowel Health Chewable tablets daily will help you to maintain regular and healthy bowel movements and to better absorb the nutrients from the food you eat.
If you switch from taking a fibre only dietary supplement you may notice a change in the texture and consistency of your stool. Fibre only supplements tend to make stools unusually bulky and fluffy (from the moisture being absorbed).
When taking Phloe™ Bowel Health you may notice your stool is smaller and less fluffy. You can feel confident and assured that this is perfectly normal and represents a healthily functioning bowel and digestive system.
Note: Stool should be comfortable to pass when using Phloe™ Bowel Health. If this is not the case please consult a medical professional.
Long Term Phloe™ Bowel Health's triple action complex addresses the three key requirements of a healthy and effective digestive system which are; prebiotics for a balanced micro flora; enzymes to support motility and assist digestion; and fibre to bulk the stool. Used daily, Phloe™ Bowel Health helps your digestive system work the way it is supposed to all of the time.
