Mode of action

Lactulose acts as a kind of soluble fibre combining three effects to activate natural mechanisms to restore the microbial balance and function of the colon.
The different natural effects of lactulose are:

• Increased colonic bacterial growth
• Increased stool volume
• Peristaltic activation

Due to its established beneficial effects, lactulose is used as a food and feed ingredient to support the colonic flora as well as a medicinal product to alleviate bowel movements.
