Details

Medtrition Banatrol Plus with Bimuno Prebiotic naturally reduces the length of time and severity of diarrhea, and helps restore normal stool formation. The Banatrol formula is a medical food made from banana flakes and enhanced with Bimuno Prebiotic, a fiber clinically proven to increase beneficial bacteria in the gut. Unlike probiotics, Bimuno prebotics are not live bacteria/fungal spores, so they will not be destroyed by antibiotics or digested in the stomach. Each Banatrol Plus Packet contains 2.75 grams of Bimuno Prebiotic.

Banatrol Plus is specifically formulated for patients in the hospital experiencing diarrhea and loose stools caused by flu, antibiotics, tube feeding, and oncology treatments, Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff). Banatrol Plus is a medical food not a medicine, so it can be innitiated at the first sign of diarrhea, or as a preventative measure that will not cause constipation the way diarrheal medications can. This dietary supplement may be used for tube feeding or mixed with yogurt or applesauce.

Banana Flakes

Ingredient: Banana Flakes

Bananas contain a unique food quality found to be effective in the treatment of diarrhea, and to promote firmer stool without slowing gut motility. With equal parts fructose and sugar, bananas are a low FODMAP (Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) food rich in amylase-resistant soluble fiber and potassium.

Effective for diarrhea associated with:

  • C. difficile
  • Infections disease
  • Flu
  • Tube feeding
  • Chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Antibiotics
  • Medications
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Enterocolitis
  • Oncology Treatments

Cautions: People with latex allergy may also be allergic to fruits such as bananas, avocado, passion fruit, plums, strawberry, and tomatoes. This is known as latex-fruit syndrome and can result in hives, sneezing, coughing, itching, and may also lead to anaphylactic reaction. Medical Food should be used under medical supervision. Not a sole source of nutrition

Is Prebiotic the Same as Probiotic?

  • Prebiotic is indigestible, usually fiber
  • Reaches and passes through the small intestine untouched
  • Gets fermented in the large intestine
  • Microbiome feeds on prebiotic
  • Probiotic is living organisms
  • Stomach and small intestine destroy most, if not all, of these organisms

How to Use with Tube Feeding

  1. Give one packet of banatrol for every six to eight hours of feeding
  2. Mix banatrol powder of packet with 120 mL of room-temperature water
  3. Stir until dissolved
  4. Dispense into feeding tube with a syringe
  5. Pressure on plunger may be required
  6. Flush with 30 mL of water both before and after feeding
  7. Do not mix with tube feeding

What Prebiotic does Banatrol Plus Contain?

  • Banatrol flakes contain Bimuno
  • Bimuno is the only second-generation prebiotic
  • It inhibits GI-pathogenic bacteria in the small intestine
  • Bifidobacteria ferment it in the large intestine
  • Its fermentation leads to the pH balance changing

Bifidobacteria Play a Role in Good Health

Bifidobacteria feed on the fibers in the Bimuno. As the number of these friendly bacteria grows, strains that detract from good health have less room to live. These healthful bacteria play a vital role in good health. They produce critical vitamins and chemicals, help change the pH balance of the gut, make short-chain fatty acids, and break down dietary fiber.

  • For best results, give at first signs of diarrhea
