The gut often plays the role of ‘First Line of Defense’ when encountering unwanted elements.
Offering Support for your Gut is Always a Great Idea.
Here are a few tools we love:
Friendly bacteria (probiotic organisms) are required for ideal health. The body needs them for normal digestion as well as optimal immunity.* These friendly bacteria are powerful in their functions but are readily damaged or even destroyed by toxins. Plus, antibiotics thoroughly devastate them. Also, they are depleted by stress, processed foods, and pharmaceutical drugs. Thus, for optimal health they must regularly be replenished. There are numerous issues today with probiotics. Many probiotics contain bacterial strains or species that are not proven to readily implant in the human digestive tract. This reduces their effectiveness. Also, a number are potentially contaminated due to their low-quality source. Swine-sourced probiotics are also common. These may contain residual contaminants from processing, including noxious, potentially infectious, swine-based pathogens. Plus, they are unfit for vegetarians.
Health-Bac is the only truly vegan probiotic supplement available. It contains the highest quality and most natural friendly bacteria known. Clinically demonstrated to survive the intestinal tract and successfully implant in the human gut, this is a true power for intestinal health.* Health-Bac is a broad-spectrum probiotic, containing nine friendly bacteria strains. All strains present in this formula are 100% Plant-based. Health-Bac contains the Ecologic 500 formula. This is the most researched and tested probiotic formulation known.
Ecologic 500 includes the following healthy bacteria strains: Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium longum, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, and
Lactobacillus lactis. Also, the strength of this broad-spectrum friendly bacteria supplement is boosted by prebiotics fructooligosaccharide (FOS) and inulin.*
Another strategy for gut health is through enzyme supplementation.
We have found Gastronex Premium Enzyme Formulation to be of great value.
This supplement is crucial for ideal digestion. The spice extracts in Gastronex stimulate the flow of digestive juices. This flow is essential for the mixing and dissolving ofvfoods. Then the potent enzymes in the formula digest the food. The combination of ginger, coriander, and cardamom is ideal. These spices have been used for thousands of years to boost digestion. In particular, coriander contains caffeic and chlorogenic acids, which stimulate the flow of bile. Ginger stimulates the flow of stomach acid and thus aids in the digestion of protein. It also helps balance pancreatic secretions. Fenugreek is highly nourishing and calming to the gut. Thus, it too balances the digestive process, plus it boosts the production of pancreatic secretions. Furthermore, it is rich in substances known as steroidal saponins, which strengthen the adrenal glands. Cardamom contains therapeutic volatile oil, which helps create a state of balancethrougho ut the entire intestinal canal. Wild oregano blend (P73) is added for increased spice power. The legendary P73 blend of wild oregano is a potent source of minerals, phenols, esters and terpenes, plus it cleanses the gut of noxious germs.
Enzymes are added to assist the natural process of breaking down foods. This natural and powerful blend contains protease, amylase, lipase, cellulase, lactase, bromelain, and papain. These are all the highest quality, non-GMO, plant-source enzymes available.
Finally, we have found it is beneficial to add a pre-biotic product to this regiment.
The ideal product in our findings is Yacon Syrup and Powder.
Peruvian Harvest Yacon is RAW and of the finest quality.
Rich in FOS (Fructo-Oligosaccharides) and possessing a glycemic Index of just 2, Yacon goes beyond just a Healthy Sweetener, becoming an Excellent Energy Source, or Prebiotic, for the Probiotics described above.
Being a Pre-Biotic also means it Does Not Feed Fungus, therefore will benefit and not compromise the goal of excellent gut health.
…The delicious flavor doesn’t hurt either!
–Yacon Syrup has a taste that reminds us of gentle honey, Excellent for Coffee, Tea, Sauces, Smoothies and more.
–Yacon Powder sweetens up when blended with other foods, such as cacao, maca, lucuma etc, and is Especially Excellent for Baking.
–Yacon Chocolate offers all the Benefits described, in a Delicious Chocolate Presentation.
