Health Information

Heres what Ethical Nutrients have to say about Dealing with diarrhoea - how probiotics can help

While our bowel habits are not something many of us talk about (even to our nearest and dearest), it is important to realise that bowel disorders are very common, with most Australians affected at some time during their lives. Fortunately you may be able to manage diarrhoea using probiotics or "good" bacteria for your digestive system.

What is diarrhoea and why, oh why, do I have it?

Diarrhoea can be both an embarrassing and an annoying complaint. Symptoms such as urgent passage of loose or watery stools, abdominal pain or cramps, nausea and flatulence make diarrhoea one of those things we’d rather not think about, let alone experience!

Many antibiotics may kill the "good" bugs you need for healthy digestive function, as well as destroying harmful bacteria. The use of antibiotics can therefore affect the balance of "good" and "bad" bugs in your digestive system, causing diarrhoea. When antibiotic use is necessary, it is important to supplement with good bacteria such as Inner Health or Inner Health Plus to maintain correct bacterial balance in the gastrointestinal tract.

Other factors that can cause diarrhoea include stress or eating foods that doesn't "agree" with you. The most common cause of diarrhoea, however, is an infection of the intestines, such as gastroenteritis or food poisoning.

When the tummy bugs attack...

Ethical Nutrients Gastro Relief can help in the relief or treatment of diarrhoea in adults and children. Ethical Nutrients Gastro Relief contains two ingredients: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (boulardii) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®).

Saccharomyces boulardii, a beneficial yeast, has been widely researched for its use in the treatment of diarrhoea. Saccharomyces boulardii has been found to protect the digestive system and maintain gastrointestinal immunity. Saccharomyces boulardii reduces the frequency and duration of acute diarrhoea.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) is a "good" bug or probiotic. It is one of the most extensively studied and best characterised probiotic organisms that has proven efficacy as a therapeutic agent in cases of infectious diarrhoea.

Ethical Nutrients Gastro Relief, containing both Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) and Saccharomyces boulardii, reduces the frequency and severity of diarrhoea in adults and children and helps to maintain a normal healthy gastrointestinal system.

During a bout of diarrhoea:

* Keep up your fluid intake. To prevent dehydration, take frequent sips of water and clear fluids like herbal teas and rehydration formulas. Rehydration formulas replace essential salts and other minerals that may become quickly depleted by diarrhoea.

* Avoid sugary drinks, coffee and milk products as these may irritate your digestive system or make the situation worse.

* Use Ethical Nutrients Gastro Relief for the treatment of diarrhoea in adults and children.

Out of toilet paper again?

Frequent, recurring or chronic diarrhoea may be due to bowel disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease or lactose intolerance. Irritable bowel syndrome typically begins in early adult life and is believed to affect approximately one-fifth of the population. Symptoms can include cramping pain, bloating, flatulence and alternating constipation and diarrhoea.

Ethical Nutrients IBS Support is a probiotic that may assist in the management of medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome. Ethical Nutrients IBS Support may help reduce the symptoms of medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome such as bloating, pain, flatulence, stool frequency and constipation.

Probiotics can help restore normal function to your digestive system

So whether it’s antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, an acute bout of infectious diarrhoea, or a long-term problem caused by medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome, Ethical Nutrients and Inner Health have a probiotic for you.

Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.
