All Natural Solutions—For Digestion Problems

Do you have digestion problems three or more times a week? If you are one of the many who battle occasional constipation, digestive discomfort, gas, and bloating, occasional heartburn, or irritable bowel issues, your digestive system is sending you a message. The message is: “I’m imbalanced!”

Imbalanced digestion due to poor diet, dietary changes, certain medications, stress, or other health conditions does not mean you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable digestive system. Certain lifestyle changes and dietary supplements can help set your digestion back on track and relieve your digestive discomfort. ǂ

Constipation and Your Health

Constipation is one of today’s most common digestion problems with more than 4 million Americans experiencing severe constipation and many more dealing with occasional to moderate constipation. A balanced digestive system should produce 2-3 bowel movements each day, or approximately one movement for each meal.

Constipation can mean an inability to produce regular bowel movements, straining while trying to pass waste, or incomplete bowel movements. It is often accompanied by gas and/or cramping. The constipated bowel produces toxins which build up and affect digestion—even occasional constipation can set the digestive system and the whole body up for further health problems down the road.

Manage Constipation Naturally
ConstipationSTOP is a multi-ingredient herbal laxative that works in three ways to help relieve occasional constipation and support the regular bowel movements your body needs:

  • Hydrate and soften stool with natural buckthorn and magnesium, a mineral that draws water into the colon and the bowel, making stool softer and easier to pass. ǂ
  • Stimulate bowel movements with cape aloe and rhubarb, two laxative extracts that support peristalsis—the movement of waste through the colon—for more complete elimination. ǂ
  • Lubricate and soothe the bowel with marshmallow, okra, and slippery elm herbs to support easier waste passage. ǂ

How is Your Bacterial Balance?
Another essential factor in digestion problems is the balance of “good” bacteria in your intestines. We have billions of these bacteria in our gut and they play an important part in producing vitamins, digesting food, supporting healthy bowel movements, and promoting our immunity. A poor diet, stress, and antibiotic use can all deplete these “good” bacteria levels, causing occasional constipation, gas, bloating, occasional diarrhea, and digestive upset.

Replenish your “good” bacteria levels with a probiotic supplement such as Ultimate Flora 50 Billion, an extra-strength probiotic for anyone with troublesome digestion. ǂ

  • Contains a potent 50 billion probiotic cultures and 10 beneficial strains.
  • Supports a healthy bacterial balance in the small and large intestine (colon) ǂ
  • Contains a high ratio of Bifidobacteria probiotics to target bowel and colon health, plus Lactobacillus probiotics for healthy digestion ǂ
  • Special delayed-release capsules ensure probiotics survive stomach acid to reach the intestines where they do their work.

A probiotic supplement can be taken every day to help boost your levels of good bacteria in the digestive tract. ǂ

Understanding Heartburn and Irritable Bowel

Heartburn is one of those digestion problems that produce a reflux of stomach acid and contents up into the esophagus. Most of us are convinced that this is a result of too much stomach acid, but as researchers have found too little stomach acid can also cause the same acid reflux.

If you are one of those people with too little stomach acid, you are not breaking down proteins properly in the stomach. This is especially an issue for those on a high-protein diet. By supplementing with betaine HCl (hydrochloric acid) at mealtime, you can help support healthy levels of stomach acid so food is broken down as it should be in the stomach. ǂ Heartburn Prevention is formulated to promote healthy levels of stomach acid and digestive enzymes to counteract heartburn before it starts: ǂ

  • Betaine HCl enhances digestion in the stomach to help offset acid reflux issues ǂ
  • Plant-based digestive enzymes protease, amylase, and lipase support optimum protein, carb, and fat digestion for more thorough nutrient breakdown ǂ

When you are more thoroughly breaking down your food, your upper digestive tract is better balanced and you see less acid and heartburn effects.

Irritable Bowel and Your Intestines
Irritable bowel is characterized by abdominal upset, cramping, and bowel issues such as constipation and/or diarrhea. While we are still working to understand this condition, it is known that irritable bowel affects the intestinal lining, an important and delicate area of nutrient absorption and a center for immunity.

The soothing ingredients in IntestiNEW support a healthy intestinal lining with select digestive support nutrients:

  • L-glutamine and N-acetyl D-glucosamine support healthy intestinal mucosa cells, promoting an optimum level of permeability in the intestines ǂ
  • Gamma oryzanol, an extract of rice bran, acts as an antioxidant in the intestines to scavenge free radicals and keep cells healthy ǂ
  • Herbs cranesbill, ginger, marigold, and marshmallow help soothe the intestinal lining and lubricate it for easier bowel movement passage ǂ
