Happy Fermented Fibre (produced utilising NutraLock™) contains the number one source of resistant starch in the world – 100% Organic Australian grown green bananas. This superfood contains three types of fibre (soluble, insoluble and fermented) making it the ultimate prebiotic multi-fibre resistant starch source.
This multi fibre source feeds the billions of good bacteria that make up your gut microbiome. These tiny bacteria control most of your overall health and encourage rapid production of important digestive enzymes.
Resistant starch from green bananas is often referred to as a second meal. That’s right! Resistant starch allows your to eat once and have that satisfied feeling of having eaten twice
5 HTP is a natural precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that regulates your feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Serotonin helps your mood, energy, appetite, libido, sleep maintenance and reduces anxiety.
On a banana farm in far north tropical Queensland, hungry cows would literally break down fences to get to a pile of (supposedly) unwanted green bananas.
Wallabies would stand by, idle. Every Friday. Waiting for farmers to dump more green bananas on this forever growing pile.
Why was this happening?
And why were these wild animals sooo interested in the ‘supposedly’ unusable green bananas?
This mystery was solved one summer afternoon when a farmer accidentally drove over a few of the green bananas. After looking back at the squashed bananas on the driveway, the farmer saw ‘unexplained’ mystery dust.
His inquisitive nature took hold and he had to ask the question… Is this a type of new flour?
After suffering from mild celiac disease and being unimpressed with gluten free options on the market, this innovative farmer pioneered a new method of production called NutraLock.
He then started producing small amounts of what’s now known as Green Banana Resistant Starch. Or, Green Banana Flour.
As it turns out, Green Bananas are made of 44% resistant starch. The highest grade and level of resistant starch in the entire world which has been clinically tested in an internationally accredited laboratory.
Despite common recommendations around eating a high fibre diet, the fact remains that fibre is still a misunderstood ingredient.
Fibre is part of the structure of plants and is responsible for building pectin, lignins and cellulose. Fibre is actually free from calories because it cannot be digested by humans.
Instead, fibre passes through our digestive system and helps flush away waste, cholesterol and toxins out of your gut. It also helps with digestion and total body detoxification. These fibres work like a prebiotic.
When the fibres enter your digestive system they encourage production of digestive enzymes which nourish your good bacteria and in turn heals your gut.
There are three types of fibre: Insoluble, Soluble and Fermented Fibre. Also known as resistant starch. Soluble fibre slows down digestion by attracting water and forming a gel-like substance once digested. Insoluble fibre tends to speed up digestion by adding bulk to stool (basically helping relieve constipation and allowing you to poop).
Now, chances are that you have not heard of the last (and new) type of fermented fibre…
Changes are that you haven’t heard of the third type of fermented fibre— resistant starch.
Resistant starch is fast becoming the new medical superfood of the world because of its unique ability to reboot the health of your entire body.
Resistant starch is a positive carbohydrate and contains not gluten or sugar. In fact, it’s vital to maintaining your overall health. Especially when it comes from the Australian ‘lady finger’ green banana.
The starch works by producing butyrate in our large intestine. This crucial digestive enzyme provides the kind of food your good gut bacteria crave and inhibit the growth of toxic bacteria.
Resistant starch works by producing butyrate in our large intestine, this crucial digestive enzyme feeds good gut bacteria and inhibits the growth of bad bacteria.
It also helps naturally lower triglyceride levels, cholesterol and chronic inflammation. It’s also been shown to increase the bioavailability of your food in the gut. Allowing your body to extract and absorb a higher rate of vitamins, minerals and antioxidant capacity from your foods.
A new study has even shown that resistant starch rich diet can aid in the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. For people without diabetes (yet), resistant starch is critical for its prevention.
Stubborn bloating that refuses to go away
High fasting glucose levels
Foul sulphur smelling gas and burping
Acid reflux and GERD
Sugar highs and cravings
You’re still hungry after finishing a meal
A weak immune system (constant colds etc.)
Trouble losing weight
Chronic systemic inflammation
High levels of bad LDL cholesterol
Digestive disturbances, discomfort and chronic gut issues
Type 2 diabetes
Recent use of antibiotics
High blood pressure
Mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and mood disorders
Resistant starch is rare… And it’s only found in a small handful of foods so there aren’t many options out there.
You can choose from cold potatoes, legumes, lentials, bean or cold rice. But you sure have to eat a lot of these to get anywhere near the recommended serve of 18 grams per day.
Scientists agree that the most abundant and powerful form of resistant starch is Green Banana Resistant Starch. Green banana contain a HUGE 44% resistant starch per every 100 grams.
This means that you only need approximately one tablespoon to get your entire daily intake.
Green Banana derived resistant starch is easily the best source going around. Not only does it contain a multi fibre blend of soluble, insoluble and fermented fibre. It’s also entirely sugar free and scientifically tested to contain 5HTP — the all natural precursor to the feel good and ‘happiness’ neurotransmitter, Serotonin.
It’s also rich in important minerals such as potassium, zinc, magnesium together with vitamins B3 and B6.
We source our Green Banana Resistant Starch from lady finger bananas in tropical north Queensland. Every single batch is scientifically tested and manufactured naturally to the highest pharmaceutical standards in the world.
Our manufacturer used millions of dollars worth of Government-backed Research to develop and pioneer a new food manufacturing method called NutraLock™.
This new technology has been proven to ‘lock in’ the important nutrients at a rate of 20-50 times higher than conventional heat processing techniques (unlike cheaper variations that use nasty heat processing that kills off all the beneficial nutrients, including the resistant starch.
The all new process is natural, raw, cold and maintains the integrity of the cellular structures, for unparalleled health benefits that are passed onto to you.
A scientific study from Louisiana University System showed that a high-fat diet with supplementation of butyrates (formed by the fermentation of green banana flour in your gut) lead to weight maintenance without having to reduce food intake. The same study also showed that butyrate can also prevent and treat diet-induced blood sugar resistance. Another study by the International Journal of Environmental research studies the effects of native banana starch on glycemic response in both lean and overweight people. They found that banana starch supplementation greatly improved blood sugar response during both eating and non-eating periods throughout the day.
Prebiotics and Probiotics are so popular today because a healthy colon requires your gut to be healthy first. When your gut bacteria eat the resistant starch from green bananas, they product an important, short-chain fatty acid called butyrate. Butyrate keeps the cells in your colon healthy and even helps fight cancerous cells. Your intestines love butyrate because it keeps things working properly and promotes production of vital immune cells, enteric neurons, intestinal microflora and nutrients.
Metabolic syndrome is group of risk factors such as high blood sugar, obesity, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and obesity. Now, having any one of these factors is risky but having multiple can increase your risk of diabetes by 5x. Not to mention your increased risk of heart disease and strokes. A recent study of green banana flour has shown that there were great improvements in metabolic syndrome symptoms in the participants, along with a reduction in fasting glucose levels (important to monitor for diabetes) and systolic blood pressure.
It has been shown that the resistant starch found in green bananas keeps blood sugar levels in check but it can also help with weight loss. Being a multi fibre source, green banana flour adds ‘bulk’ so when eaten, you will feel fuller sooner which promotes a satisfying feeling of satiety. A recent study even indicated that people who consumed green banana starch lost more body weight than when those same patients were on the control treatment.
Foods high in resistant starch can help lower cholesterol levels, meaning green banana flour is an important cholesterol lowering food. A recent Journal of Nutrition study on the effects of resistant starch showed total cholesterol and triacylglycerol level reduction in participants. Another study by South Dakota State University also showed a reduction in the average total bad (LDL) cholesterol in participants. Their weight and measurements also decreased.
Green banana flour is rich in potassium with about 500 mg per service. Potassium is important because it acts as an electrolyte, promotes circulatory health, helps healthy blood flow and ensures that enough oxygen gets to all your cells. Potassium is also helps prevent high blood pressure and decreases the risks of heart disease and stroke because it regulates water retention, sodium and circulation. It also prevents muscle cramping following exercise and helps your muscles recover faster after exercise. This makes it an important nutrient for anyone who is especially physically active or who is recovering from an injury.
Additionally, the high amount of potassium found in green bananas has heavily studied and correlations have been found when helping to decrease symptoms associated with ADHD, back pain, kidney stones, headaches and more!
Green bananas are high in tryptophan, an essential amino acid that acts like a natural mood regulator and has the ability to balance certain hormones naturally. One of these hormones is that it regulates is serotonin. Healthy levels of serotonin work to lift your mood and prevent mood disorders including anxiety and depression. Green bananas also include antioxidants that help with the release of dopamine within the brain.
Studies have shown that tryptophan and 5HTP can work as well as prescription antidepressants. Studies indicate that 5HTP is highly beneficial for people with mild to moderate depression. Research has also linked a reduced intake of tryptophan can cause significant reductions in certain brain activities that promote happiness and that low serotonin levels are more common among people with anxiety and depression. Increased production of serotonin through 5HTP helps in maintaining sleep, libido, energy, reduces anxiety, mood and appetite control.
Green banana resistant starch plays a pivotal role in removing aflatoxins from the body. Aflatoxins are found in corn, fungi and other types of vegetables. Over time, they can build up in your body and exceed the limit in which your body can effectively deal with them. One you body can no longer cope, cancer can inevitably occur. Your body can only take so much toxicity before it succumbs to all of the life factors that pollute our system and run us down.
Zinc deficiency occurs when you don’t eat enough foods that contain zinc or you have trouble absorbing zinc from foods due to very poor gut health, such as having leaky gut syndrome and digestive disorders. Zinc acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body and is an effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent. It also helps fight oxidative stress and decrease the chance for disease development, including as a natural cancer treatment. Zinc is also important for a healthy immune system, healing wounds, healthy growth and development in childhood, cognitive function and eye health just to name a few.
Vitamin E is an important fat soluble vitamin that’s required for the proper function of many organs, enzymatic activities and neurological processes. Some of the benefits of consuming vitamin E rich food such as green banana flour including the treating and preventing diseases the the blood vessels and heart such as high blood pressure, blocked or hardened arteries and chest pains. Vitamin E has also been proven to benefit skin, provide protection against toxins and maintain healthy eye and brain function.

Fibre is part of the structure of plants and is responsible for building pectin, lignins and cellulose. Fibre is actually free from calories because it cannot be digested by humans. Instead, fibre passes through our digestive system and helps flush away waste, fast, cholesterol and toxins out of your gut. It also helps with digestion and total body detoxification. These fibres work like a prebiotic. Essentially, they feed your microbiome (billions of tiny good bacteria which lives in your gut and controls much of your overall health). When the fibres enter your digestive system they encourage production of digestive enzymes which nourish your good bacteria and in turn heals your gut. It’s normally super difficult to get correct doses of all three essential types of fibre in a regular diet. Now you can be confidant that you are getting a full daily does of all these fibre types with multi-fibre source.
A high-fiber diet helps prevent digestive disorders and diseases like colon cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis. This is because prebiotic fiber helps improve immune function and maintains better colon and intestinal health. It also clears away harmful waste from the digestive organs. Additionally, a high-fiber diet is linked to a lower risk for many other types of diseases, including cancer and heart disease. There is mounting scientific evidence that fermented dietary fibre (prebiotics) regulates multiple parts of the immune system. These include those in the gut (specifically the lymphoid tissues which are also known as GALT). Changes in intestinal microflora that occur with the consumption of prebiotic fibre can boost your immunity by positively changing the way your body responds to acids and bacteria.
All three fibre types play an important part in digestion. Soluble fibre is especially important because it provides bulk to the stool which makes bowel movements much easier. Insoluble fibre then helps speed up the transit it takes for waste to pass through the digestive tract. In turn, this helps prevent constipation, indigestion and stubborn bloating. Soluble fibre absorbs water and becomes gelatinous and is fermented by bacteria in your digestive tract which helps improve digestion. Make sure you’re getting plenty of water throughout the day to ensure you are getting all these health benefits.
No matter what food intolerance you may have, you can be confidant that Happy Fermented fibre is completely free from sugar, grains, gluten and dairy and is 100% paleo and vegan friendly.

Magnesium plays a crucial role in just about every bodily process, from the synthesis of DNA to the metabolism of blood sugars. Low levels of this crucial mineral are linked to a long list of chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease and diabetes. It goes without saying that no nutritious diet can really ever be complete without a few servings of magnesium-rich foods. Magnesium is a vital catalyst for enzyme activity. Especially when it comes to energy production. It also helps prevent dizziness, depression, PMS and muscle weakness. Magnesium also maintain your body’s PH levels to help prevent chronic inflammation and temperature.
