What makes Benevits Bowel Support different from standard probiotic products?
BeneVits Bowel Support contains a unique combination of ingredients. The key ingredient is Acacia Senegal. Acacia Senegal is a highly effective natural and soluble fibre from the acacia tree.

This in combination with fennel, peppermint, probiotics and frutoloigosacharaides provide a key combination of ingredients that contribute to positive bowel health.
Whats makes the Acacia fibre in Benevits Bowel Support so special?
The Acacia fibre in Benevits Bowel Support ferments at a slower pace than fibres containing Ispagula husks, which have a tendency to cause uncomfortable gas and bloating. Acacia fibre, on the other hand, proves to be incredibly well-tolerated.
