  • Medibulk® by Thorne Research provides important soluble fiber to promote a healthy GI tract. Medibulk comes in a convenient powder to make it easy to mix with water or another beverage. It also helps enhance short-chain fatty acids to promote gastrointestinal health. Medibulk can be used along with a healthy diet to maintain normal blood sugar and cholesterol levels. In addition to all this‚ it is a good source for soluble and insoluble fiber.

    How Medibulk Works

    Bacteria‚ which live in the colon‚ use soluble fiber and other undigested carbohydrates as food to create short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids are then used by as fuel by mucosal cells within the colon. So‚ the short-chain fatty acids which are liberated by the bacteria can lower the pH level of the colon and shorten transit time within the GI tract. This process enhances detoxification and reduces the potential toxic burden on the liver. The sources of soluble fiber contained in Medibulk are pectin‚ prune powder and psyllium.

    Benefits of Psyllium

    As the soluble non-starch polysaccharides in psyllium are anaerobically fermented in the gut‚ important short chain fatty acids are produced. One such acid is butyric acid‚ which is the preferred fuel for the mucosal cells within the colon (called colonocytes)‚ also provides crucial support for healthy function of the colon. One study showed that patients who supplemented with 20 grams of psyllium seed daily for three months showed an increase in butyric acid product by about 42 percent. After the subjects stopped supplementing with the psyllium seed‚ their levels went back to what they were before the study began. This shows that the psyllium seed‚ and not other changes‚ are what had an impact on their butyric acid levels. All kinds of soluble fiber‚ including psyllium‚ also have a positive effect on supporting cholesterol metabolism and maintaining normal blood sugar levels.

    Who Can Benefit from Medibulk

    If you are suffering from occasional diarrhea or constipation‚ need soothing of hemorrhoids‚ appetite control‚ or if you just feel the need to boost your overall colon health‚ you can benefit from supplementing with Medibulk.

    Also‚ if you’re thinking about starting a detoxification program‚ it is important to first achieve the best possible bowel function. By using Thorne Research’s Medibulk‚ you can speed transit time in the bowel and bind toxins that are released into the intestines from the liver‚ thus preventing them from being reabsorbed. Detoxification programs are great for cleaning out the liver‚ which will help clear toxins from the rest of your body‚ but they can be more effective if you first clear out toxins from your intestinal tract with Medibulk

    How to Use Medibulk

    When you first start using Medibulk‚ start with a small dose of ½ scoop combined with 8 ounces of water (or your favorite beverage). Take one dose at night and slowly build up to two to three scoops. You may keep the increased dose in 8 ounces of fluid‚ or you may increase the fluid content.

    Medibulk Review

    I've been using Medibulk by Thorne Research for about 3 years. I think it's the best product of its kind on the market. Medibulk consistently helps alleviate my digestive problems.

    Pros

      Medibulk has almost no flavor and easily dissolves in juice or shake mixes. It's highly digestible and works quickly.

    Cons

      It has been out of stock several times over the last few weeks.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    medibulk review

    I dont have a lot to say about this product except that it works well and isnt problematic for me. I have no complaints I can think of. Its being kind of "neutral" is a good thing -- I dont have to concern myself with it or "fix" what it does to me.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Pros

      smooth texture not slimy easy to change the viscosity with water not clumpy when mixed with water slowly dont need to drink it immediately easily to digest

    Cons

      nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great for Smoothies!

    I like Medibulk because it thickens my smoothies along with adding fiber so it tastes good and is good for me.

    Pros

      Great fibre and makes smoothies nice and thick so I can eat with a spoon.

    Cons

      If you dont want smoothie very thick put more liquid in.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
