Acacia gum (also known as gum arabic) is a natural exudate from sap collected from the trunk and branches of certain species of acacia forest shrubs. This sap has traditionally been consumed by Africans and Indians to improve digestive health and intestinal transit. It’s a complex blend of polysaccharides and glycoproteins, specific compounds that the human body is unable to digest. This means it is resistant to digestive enzymes and is thus a source of energy for beneficial species of gut flora (probiotics), particularly bacteria from the genus Bifidobacterium and those able to produce lactic acid. It therefore fits this definition of a ‘prebiotic’ proposed by a team of researchers: “A selectively fermented ingredient allowing specific changes both in the composition and activity of the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon well-being and health.” (2). »

¤ Desmodium appears to produce rapid results in acute viral hepatitis accompanied by symptoms including jaundice, asthenia (weakness) and modified biological parameters such as transaminases. The jaundice and asthenia disappear within a week and biological parameters return to normal within 2 to 4 weeks. A study of 32 cases of acute viral hepatitis show that Desmodium's effects are rapid and permanent as long as the disease is treated promptly, within a few days of it presenting. ...
