All of us will suffer from digestive disturbances, for one reason or another, at some stage during our lives. Bowel problems due to antibiotic administration respond well to probiotics - replacing the beneficial bacteria that is destroyed from antibiotic use. As we get older, enzyme production is reduced, and embarrassing symptoms like bloating, wind, constipation or diarrhoea can arise. Digestive stimulants, enzymes and carminatives may help. It is imperative that our digestion is kept in good working order as 70% of our immune system lines our gut. The gut is also where we obtain our nutrition and eliminate harmful waste.
The Digestion category contains subcategories.
To view the products from one of the subcategories, please click the subcategory name.
This category includes a range of supplements which can help with digestive problems. It includes products such as colostrum, digestive enzymes, aloe vera juice, activated charcoal, as well as cholesterol lowering formulations and our liver and bowel cleansing packs. All of our probiotics are found in their own category also in this section.
Here is a list of all of the Digestive Enzyme formulas we stock. These include vegetarian or plant based, as well as animal based formulas. Some are multi functional, others may target one specific food group, such as gluten or dairy.
Many people need to take laxatives at times, to help promote bowel regularity. There are many different types of laxatives - for example psyllium husks, cascara sagrada, aloe vera and Swedish bitters. Remember it is your liver which controls your bowel, so improving how this organ functions may help. Drinking water, increasing your dietary fibre content and including gentle exercise are also beneficial.
Probiotics are dietary supplements which contain beneficial bacteria, taken to help repopulate the intestinal tract, creating a friendlier environment. The use of these are particularly recommended after taking antibiotics or if you have a bowel problem such as constipation, diarrhoea etc, as well as thrush, UTI and many other problems which can relate to an imbalance of beneficial bacteria. We recommend both the Natures Way Primadophilus range of probiotics, which have a product for all age groups and also the Ethical Nutrients Inner Health, which have probiotics for many different health complaints.
