The best way to combat it is to drink plenty of fluids and eating plenty of soluble fiber. Pronagar ®, due to its high fiber content, has the capacity to retain water and form mucilage and / or gels. In this way, it facilitates the removal of waste from the stomach by wrapping them in a smooth gliding gel that does not damage the intestinal walls and even allows to regenerate the damaged ones by not exposing them to further attacks.
It thus also prevents colon diseases, as their consumption decreases the exposure time of toxins in the bowl, helping remove them from the body by an efficient gliding expulsion.
In this way, it mainly helps prevent the typical problems of diverticulitis, common in low-fiber diets, as Pronagar ® increases the excretion and helps colonic pressure decrease, so that it is also associated with a reduced risk of colo-rectal cancer
As already mentioned above, when compared to other foods rich in fiber such as bran, cereals, legumes or fruits, Pronagar ® contains a higher amount of soluble fiber, it acts as a sponge to swell in the stomach, produces a satiety effect and calms the appetite.
Moreover, due to its caloric content close to zero, it is an ideal product for those who want to lose weight or maintain the line.
The fibre in Pronagar ® mixes with cholesterol, modulating its effects and preventing from being absorbed excessively by the body and, as for the smooth intestinal transit, this cholesterol surplus also ends up being dragged and excreted in the feces.
Pronagar® does not contain any sugar. This feature adds to the fact that its consumption decreases the rate of absorption of sugars by the body for being absorbed by the agar-agar in competition with it and be dragged before metabolized, thus avoiding high levels of carbohydrates in the blood after eating.
For its ability to attract and keep the fluid intake in the diets, Pronagar ® helps prevent dehydration,being especially important in older people, and even more in those with difficulty swallowing liquids, which is known as dysphagia.
The high fiber content agar disposes of, decreases the time of exposure to potential carcinogenic metabolites, helping the body expel all sorts of toxins, ie the particles responsible for the development of this disease are dragged along with the stool, which reduces its permanency and contact time in the intestine.
