Microflora support for peak metabolic, digestive and immune performance*
Boost probiotic + metabolic performance with ultramodern Orafti® Synergy1
Probiotic supplements are unpredictable. They overload the gut with 10+ strains and 20+ billion cultures, which may cause gastric distress. Probiotics are also fragile, and may be “dead on arrival”.
Rather than introducing new probiotics to the gut, Performance Lab® Prebiotic nourishes your existing probiotic colony with Orafti® Synergy1 (Inulin-FOS from chicory root) for robust growth and health.
Result: More reliable, natural and comfortable microbiome support than probiotic supplements. Plus, Prebiotic soluble fiber helps digestion, immune function, heart health, weight control and more.
Take Performance Lab® Prebiotic daily as your versatile solution for gut health, nutritional status and overall wellness*.

Orafti® Synergy1 Inulin-FOS
Inulin and FOS are soluble fibers with prebiotic properties. Structurally, inulin is a long-chain molecule while FOS is short-chain. Both are found in chicory root, which is 20% inulin and 10% FOS.
Inulin-FOS is resilient: It passes undigested through the GI tract, arriving intact in the colon where it selectively feeds Bifidobacterium probiotic strains and stimulates their growth.
Inulin-FOS Diet Stimulates Bifidus Probiotic Proliferation in the Colon – In vivo study
Prebiotic Inulin-FOS fiber has been shown in human research to shift Bifidobacteria distribution in the gut from 20% to 71%.
Together in Prebiotic Orafti® Synergy1, inulin + FOS optimize two key pathways that unlock multiple bio-performance benefits:
1. Inulin-FOS Probiotic Support
Prebiotic’s Bifidobacterium-promoting activity contributes to probiotic benefits for:
A robust intestinal microbiome of Bifidobacterium (and other probiotic strains) is important for digestive and metabolic health. Probiotics supply enzymes that enable efficient breakdown and utilization of foods and nutrients in the gut.
Bifidobacterium fermentation of Inulin-FOS produces lactic acid that reduces gut pH, limiting growth of bad bacteria and pathogens such as Candida albacans and E. coli. Bifidobacterium also adheres to the intestinal lining, strengthening a critical barrier against microbes.
Probiotics’ anti-pathogen bioactivities support immune function. Probiotics may also promote healthy immune performance by enhancing the synthesis and proliferation of immune cells lymphocytes and macrophages, which play key roles in immune defenses.
Bifidobacterium and other lactic-acid producing flora promote a favorable acidic environment for absorption of minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. Bifidobacterium also synthesizes B-vitamins and vitamin K within the GI tract.
2. Inulin-FOS Soluble Fiber Support
Prebiotic Inulin-FOS also promotes several soluble fiber benefits for:
- Inulin-FOS absorbs water and forms a gel as it passes through the GI tract, softening and bulking stools for easier, more comfortable elimination;
- Soluble fiber can help with watery stools, absorbing excess fluid to help form firmer stools and more regular elimination;
- Bulkier stools also help with constipation and related straining, which contribute to hemorrhoids and colon health concerns.
- Inulin-FOS’s ability to absorb water and swell in the stomach blocks the hunger hormone ghrelin and promotes appetite control;
- When taken with food and water, Inulin-FOS functionally reduces calorie content of any food item that is consumed;
- Taking inulin is suggested to help reduce triglycerides: Building blocks of fatty tissues linked with weight gain and cardiovascular concerns;
- Researchers have suggested Inulin-FOS may reduce food intake by suppressing the hunger hormone ghrelin and supporting the satisfaction hormone peptide YY;
- Inulin-FOS slows food transit time in the gut, which in turn reduces glycemic load and regulates blood sugar spikes.
- Soluble fiber from foods such as Inulin-FOS promote heart health by helping to maintain cholesterol levels that are already in normal range;
- In the gut, soluble fiber binds cholesterol from foods with bile, thereby limiting cholesterol absorption and encouraging cholesterol elimination.
Performance Lab® Prebiotic Orafti® Synergy1 is oligofructose-enriched inulin fiber from chicory root enhanced with ultramodern nutritional technology. Orafti® Synergy1 has been clinically shown to safely reduce calorie intake and enhance calcium absorption.
Why Take Performance Lab® Prebiotic instead of a typical probiotic?
Probiotic supplements support healthy intestinal flora, but may have limitations and side effects.
Prebiotic takes a different approach to microflora health that may offer several advantages over standard probiotic supplements:
|Probiotic Supplements||Performance Lab® Prebiotic Advantage|
|Introduce multiple new probiotic strains to the gut’s existing microflora colony, sometimes in unnatural ratios that may yield uncomfortable results.||Feeds the gut’s unique existing microflora colony to promote healthy probiotic growth in harmony with the body, for comfortable and reliable support|
|Must arrive alive in the colon to confer digestive benefits, but are easily destroyed by heat, cold, light and stomach acids.||Resilient Orafti® Synergy1 Inulin-FOS fiber passes through the stomach acids unharmed and is fermented by Bifidobacterium in the colon|
|Some products’ labels claim up to 2+billion ‘live’ cultures, but are shown on analysis to have far fewer, with many cultures ‘dead on arrival’.||Always supplying the exact nutrition that is listed on the label, Performance Lab® Prebiotic arrives active and ready to support digestive health.|
Take Performance Lab® Prebiotic for soluble fiber and microbiome support that helps digestion, metabolism and overall health.
Performance Lab® Prebiotic supplies versatile metabolic support. Take it as an ultramodern supplement that promotes probiotic and soluble fiber benefits at the same time.
