We often hear people talking about ‘heart’ health or ‘brain’ health. But the truth is that all health starts with what you put into your body. What you eat and drink.
So, taking care of your digestive system should be a top priority for everyone. If something goes wrong then the effects will soon be felt elsewhere in the body.
Your body needs certain types of bacteria to function correctly. These bacteria are called ‘probiotics’ and they promote your health.
The ‘services’ these bacteria provide you with include getting rid of ‘bad’ bacteria, helping treat conditions such as IBS, lactose intolerance, asthma, diarrhoea, skin problems and helping create and absorb nutrients, vitamins and enzymes.
In this post, we’ll take a look at the key probiotic ingredients contained within our Digestive Boost and why we include them. Try Digestive Boost this week with the coupon code PROBIOTIC and get 10% off your order.
L. acidophilus is widely known. It’s usually found in the small intestine and aids increased immunity to yeasts and fungi, prevents against infections and diarrhoea, and also helps lower cholesterol.
L. delbruecki helps protect mucosal surfaces and has been shown to enhance immunoglobin.
L. caseii helps fight against diarrhoea, stimulates the intestinal immune response, helps digestive enzymes ease through the stomach and reduces winter infections.
L. bulgaricus helps provide a good environment for the growth of other good bacteria throughout the digestive system, aids digestion of dairy foods, helps metabolise fat and aids colon cleansing.
L. plantarum helps manufacture B, A and K vitamins, preserve antioxidants, kill moulds, increase immune system cells, reduce toxic cellular waste and eliminate nitrates and other poisonous components from foods.
L. brevis aids the synthesis of vitamins D and K, decreases ‘leaky gut syndrome’ and helps eliminate the bacteria which cause ulcers.
L. helveticus helps with bone mineral density and increases calcium absorption. It also has a stress reduction effect and speeds up recovery from fatigue.
