SSP, the maker of these Surulac Bowel Maintenance Tablets, calls the miraculous process behind them "symbiotics," which is a combination of probiotics (organisms that restore the flora in the digestive tract) and prebiotics (compounds found in food that help beneficial microorganisms to grow or act). In this case, the first is Bifidobacterium longum and the second a milk oligosaccharide called Flora Oligo. And if you want to skip the chemistry lesson, this is what you need to know: combined, these two will make your bowels work better. It is thought that synbiotics produce a good effect on the abdomen by offering probiotics (bifidobacterium, lactic acid bacteria, etc.) and prebiotics (oligosaccharides, dietary fiber, etc.) at the same time.
Developed in a country where the staple food is white rice - which everybody knows isn't exactly full of the fibers that make bowels move - the Surulac Bowel Maintenance Tablets promise to provide some much-needed bowel regulation. If your lifestyle and diet puts you in a difficult position, these yogurt-flavored tablets, available in packs of 21 or 84 tablets, will certainly help. Three a day are enough - and they come in a resealable pouch, so you can always have them with you!
