GI FLORA BALANCE PROGRAM
A 6-Week Protocol to Support Gastrointestinal Health…
DiGest Forte: 3 bottles
DiGest Forte contains Gentian, Ginger, Tangerine (Chen Pi) (fruit peel and cold pressed essential oil), Wormwood and Feverfew. This combination contains many compounds including secoiridoid bitter glycosides (including gentiopicrin and amarogentin), pungent principles (including gingerols), sesquiterpene lactones (including absinthin and parthenolide), flavonoids and monoterpenes. This formulation and the compounds within it help:
stimulate gastric juice output and appetite
support healthy digestion and intestinal function
promote healthy gastrointestinal tone
cleanse the liver
increase bile flow as a cholagogue
promote normal response to environmental stresses*
Suggested Use: 1 tablet 3 times daily, or as directed.
Gutflora Complex : 2 bottles
Gut Flora Complex contains Oregano essential oil, Anise (fruit) essential oil, Andrographis and Phellodendron. This combination of essential oils and herbs contains many compounds including monoterpenes (especially trans-anethole, carvacrol, thymol, gamma-terpinene, p-cymene), diterpenoid lactones (especially andrographolide) and alkaloids of the isoquinoline type (especially berberine). Each enteric coated capsule is standardized to contain 10 mg of andrographolide and 36 mg of berberine to ensure optimal strength and quality. Together these herbs, essential oils and the substances within them combine to:encourage a healthy intestinal environment support healthy immune system responserelieve mild gastrointestinal upset*
Suggested Use: 1 capsule 3-6 times daily, or as directed. Enteric coated capsules. Do not break or crush.
ProSynbiotic : 1 bottle
ProSynbiotic is a synergistic blend of four research-supported probiotic strains and two prebiotic fibers to support gut flora and overall intestinal health
Contains research-supported strains of lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium), and Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii
Contains inulin, a nondigestible soluble fiber from chicory root, and galactooligosaccharide (GOS), a nondigestible carbohydrate, both of which are used by probiotic bacteria as food
Useful in maintaining a healthy gut microbial environment
Helps support the body's natural absorption of calcium and magnesium
Improves nutrient digestion and absorption
Supports normal bowel regularity and consistency
Supports the body's natural immune system function*
ProSynbiotic contains clinically documented strains that work synergistically with prebiotic fibers.
Lactobacillus acidophilus (including LA-5®)—The LA-5 strain has been evaluated for its ability to interfere with the communication between other types of bacteria, thus promoting a healthy balance of microbes. The LA-5 strain was also among several other lactobacilli that improved outcomes in subjects with occasional constipation, as well as those with lactose tolerance challenges.*
Lactobacillus paracaseissp. paracasei (L.casei 431®)—To support the natural gut environment, this strain of lactic acidproducing bacteria adheres to the intestinal tract and tolerates bile. This strain has been studied in humans and mice for its ability to support the gut during challenges and for its ability to help maintain the body's natural immune system response.*
Bifidobacterium lactis (BB-12®)—Bifidobacteria are very tolerant of both acidic conditions and environments that contain bile. Bifidobacteria use a range of carbohydrates for energy (including GOS). Bifidobacteria are an important factor in all native microflora and their numbers vary depending on lifestyle, diet, exercise and age. Oral bifidobacteria have been shown to temporarily colonize the gut, competing with other bacteria to effectively support the natural bacterial balance.*
Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii—Historically, this microbe was used to support normal stool consistency. In the gut, this yeast supports the growth of some bacteria and inhibits others through competition and environmental modification of the gut.*
Inulin—Inulin is a complex carbohydrate that can be digested by certain microorganisms, providing them with energy. Inulin supports the absorption of calcium and magnesium.*
Galactooligosaccharide (GOS)—Research suggests that GOS is a preferred substrate for BB-12. In mice, GOS supplementation supported the active proteins and cells in the gut mucosa, and increased the amount of short-chain fatty acid and lactate in the gut.*
Whole Food Fiber: 1 bottle
Whole Food Fiber is a good source of fiber from nutrient-rich whole foods.
Contains both soluble and insoluble fiber
Supports healthy bowel function
Promotes regular intestinal motility and elimination
Supports healthy epithelial cells in the bowel
Provides food for beneficial microorganisms in the lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract
Supports the immune system
Can be used as nutritional support in the Standard Process Purification Program*
How does Whole Food Fiber support health?
Fiber is an essential part of any healthy diet, although most of us don’t get nearly enough. In fact, the average American consumes only 15 grams of fiber per day, while the recommended amount for adults is between 25 and 38 grams per day. Dietary fiber is indigestible complex carbohydrates found in plant cells. It can be soluble (dissolves in water) or insoluble (cannot be dissolved in water); both kinds offer important health benefits. Increasing your intake of insoluble dietary fiber can promote bowel regularity, while increasing your intake of soluble fiber can support healthy lipid and glucose levels already within a normal range. Whole Food Fiber provides a good source of fiber.*
How does this product support bowel regularity and a healthy gastrointestinal environment?
Healthy fiber intake provides bulk and softens the stool to promote bowel movement and regularity. Fiber intake also supports a healthy balance of GI flora as it promotes an environment for growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.*
How does Whole Food Fiber provide immune system support?
The prebiotic properties of oat fiber and beet fiber support a healthy environment for the growth of beneficial gut microorganisms for GI-based immune system support.*
