15 Jun 2017 ---  Taiyo has launched a new food supplement targeting digestive health in women. According to the company, women in particular suffer from digestive irregularity due to a lack of fiber in their daily diet. “Regular Girl” is a synbiotic blend of two key ingredients — Taiyo’s clinically proven prebiotic Sunfiber and functional probiotics such as Bifidus lactis — for a healthy gut in one easy-to-take product. 

The product’s neutral powder contains only natural ingredients, is non-GMO verified, gluten-free and vegetarian. First launched and marketed in the USA two years ago, Regular Girl is now available in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

As the brand name and the packaging design implies, Regular Girl has been created for health conscious women. Although the multiple benefits of fibers and probiotics for a healthy gut are well known, time is often too tight to follow a healthy and balanced diet. Formulated by a female nutritionist, each single-serving of Regular Girl combines 5 grams of Taiyo’s clinically proven prebiotic Sunfiber and 8 billion active probiotics. As such, it’s a perfect source of soluble prebiotic fiber to promote a healthy intestinal microflora. 

Click to EnlargeThe company reports that the product's fermentation rate is neither too fast nor too slow, which means no painful gas, diarrhea, bloating or cramping. Furthermore, Regular Girl helps to prevent constipation and maintain intestinal and bowel regularity for overall well-being. 

As a non-irritant ingredient, it is very compatible and even suitable for people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome. The combination of Sunfiber and active probiotics might also play a role in managing and maintaining a healthy body weight, healthy blood fat levels and healthy blood sugar levels: it indices a comfortably full and satiated feeling, and a natural desire to eat less.

The single-serving sticks of Regular Girl simplify daily fiber and probiotic consumption, even on-the-go, just by adding the powder to a meal or drink. Thanks to its high solubility, it mixes perfectly with hot and cold beverages, smoothies and cereals without impacting taste or texture. 

“We are very proud that Sunfiber is a major part of the innovative Regular Girl product. Our prebiotic ingredient is ideally suited to ensuring sufficient dietary fiber intake without negative side-effects such as bloating,” says Dr. Stefan Siebrecht, Managing Director of Taiyo GmbH. “We are confident that many women will benefit from this innovative product — and maybe also recommend it to their family, as Regular Girl promotes digestive health for everybody.”
