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 vegecaps 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 vegecaps are the first product to use a unique triple action that combines 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 which 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 vegecaps 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 vegecaps are very similar to those produced 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 your system from the food you eat.
Fibre: the fibre in Phloe Bowel Health vegecaps works by providing bulk to your stool. Moisture is absorbed from your system into your stool which helps it move through the digestive tract more comfortably.
Prebiotics: The prebiotics in Phloe Bowel Health vegecaps aid in long term digestive health. Their main role is to provide food for the good bacteria in your digestive tract to grow 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 is not 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 your digestive system.
