New Study Shows that Prebiotics, as Used by Jackson GI Medical, Increases Lifespan by 33%
Date:6/24/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In a revolutionary healthcare finding, a peer-reviewed clinical study published in the British Journal of Nutrition (a Cambridge University Journal), clearly shows that Prebiotics reduce cholesterol and triglycerides, control body weight, and increase lifespan by 33%.

The controlled clinical study was conducted on rats and showed that the rats fed prebiotics had an 80% survival rate to 24 months versus a 50% survival rate for the control group rats that were not fed prebiotics. Additionally, the "prebiotic" rats showed material reductions in cholesterol and body weight versus the control group.

Significantly, the prebiotic used in the study was oligofructose enriched inulin, a blend of two prebiotics which has repeatedly shown synergistic health benefits versus the more common single-prebiotic fibers such as plain inulin.

"This study, clearly demonstrating life-lengthening impact of prebiotics, has truly profound implications," says Jackson GI Medical CEO Kristian Chronister. "It certainly reinforces our commitment to powering our Prebiotin prebiotic supplements with oligofructose enriched inulin despite the dramatically lower cost of plain inulin," he says.

Oligofructose enriched inulin is a 100% natural, plant-derived 'compound' prebiotic fiber which has extensive clinical research demonstrating strong health benefits. Plain inulin is a far cheaper prebiotic which is used in most prebiotic supplements and enhanced foods.

"The implications of this study are somewhat staggering," says Jackson GI Chairman and Founder Frank W. Jackson, M.D. "While the research doesn't quite yet justify a claim that Prebiotin lengthens human life, the study is nevertheless dramatic in that it clearly demonstrates the colon is a health- and life-giving organ we must nourish and cherish, not just a waste disposal system."

Prebiotics are a special class of fibers which deliver health benefits by nourishing beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract while not providing sustenance to undesirable bacteria.

"We have long known from clinical research that oligofructose enriched inulin, the prebiotic in our Prebiotin family of products, enhances immunity, increases calcium absorption, decreases heart-unfriendly triglycerides and promotes digestive health," says Chronister. "This latest study strongly suggests that a very potent overall health benefit is the net result of adding prebiotics to the diet."
