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.

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

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

banatrol
I had an ileostomy last summer. This seems to be working to keep the output in the proper consistency. I take about 10 minutes before eating a meal. I use 3 packets per day
