This is what Lifestream have to tell us about a clean colon
Never underestimate the importance of a clean colon.
All about the bowels: The bowel is the common name for the large intestine and comprises the colon, rectum and anus. The colon is a muscular tube, which together with the small intestine forms the major part of the digestive system. The digestive process is completed in the colon, where water is soluble nutrients are absorbed & certain vitamins are synthesised. The colon is also responsible for the elimination of body wastes including those from food. In a healthy colon, all this is achieved with the help of billions of friendly resident bacteria. Many practitioners now believe that keeping the colon healthy is crucial to our overall health & vitality.
Some interesting facts: Over a third of the population regularly suffer from digestive upsets, Many experts believe impacted waste material in the bowel can harden and thicken over the years. You are what you eat - Nutritionists and scientists are now confirming that the age-old saying of 'you are what you eat' has never been truer! Our vitality is merely a reflection of our inner health, including the health of our digestive system. When taken as part of a healthy balanced diet, Lifestream BowelBiotics helps keep you regular and maintains healthy bowels. The Lifestream BowelBiotics formula is presently recommended by many gastroenterologists, doctors and natural practitioners in the UK despite the fact that it is not a prescription medicine and contains only natural ingredients.
What is so unique about the formula Lifestream BowelBiotics?
Lifestream BowelBiotics has been developed to help with a healthy balanced diet to keep the bowels healthy in a totally natural way. In order to achieve this, Lifestream BowelBiotics has three specific natural ingredients.
These are: 1. Fibre (Psyllium Husks). Fibre is important in the diet to ensure that waste material is moved efficiently and regularly through the colon so that undigested matter is not left for long periods in the bowel. Typically most fibre in our diet comes from wheat bran (present in most breads and cereals) but this is unsuitable for those who are allergic or intolerant to wheat products. The fibre in Lifestream BowelBiotics is therefore sourced from non-wheat sources which include psyllium husks and inulin. Psyllium husks are a water retentive non-wheat fibre source. When water is added to psyllium husks, a soft gel forms, helping matter to move through the colon smoothly. Water retentive fibre also encourages the presence of natural bacteria in the bowel.
The Importance of Varied Fibre Sources - Different types of high fibre foods in the diet can have a synergistic effect and can complement the effects of the psyllium husks in Lifestream BowelBiotics. Most vegetables, lentils and fruits (dried apricots for example) are good sources of fibre. It is important to get into the habit of varying your fibre intake from different sources.
2. Prebiotics (Inulin). Inulins are naturally occurring oligosaccharides (several simple sugars linked together) that are resistant to digestion in the stomach and intestines but are metabolized in the colon by bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. Inulins are found in vegetables such as asparagus, leeks, onions, chicory roots and garlic. Inulins help to promote the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria while simultaneously helping to reduce the population of unfriendly bacteria in the colon. Substances such as inulin that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon are called prebiotics. The ability to digest inulin varies among the different types of microflora which may commonly inhabit the intestine.
Several studies have shown how inulin added to a healthy balanced diet improves intestinal flora and enhances the Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria population. Other unfriendly species of bacteria including E. coli, Clostridia and Salmonella cannot utilize inulin. An abundance of beneficial bacteria helps your intestinal tract to remain healthy by creating conditions that are unfavourable to unfriendly bacteria. Lifestream BowelBiotics can help to ensure that sufficient levels of inulin are provided in the diet.
3. Probiotics (Lactobacilli & Bifidobacteria). Probiotics are live microbial organisms that populate the gut (such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria) and are beneficial to health. 'Good' and 'Bad' bacteria are continually competing with each other in the gut and it is now clearly recognised that long term bowel health and overall well-being can be supported by maintaining a favourable balance of friendly bacteria in the colon. All of these ingredients are from natural sources only. All are gentle in action and are not absorbed by the body, making Lifestream BowelBiotics suitable for regular, everyday use. Always consume adequate water when taking any Psyllium supplement.
