More natural tips for better digestion
Even if we eat the foods our body needs, it won’t do any good unless the food is digested and absorbed into the bloodstream, allowing the nutrients to be distributed to the cells throughout the body.
Hawthorn, long used as a digestive aid, can be an important supplement for those concerned about absorption and assimilation of nutrients.
Normalizing the bacteria
God designed the digestive tract to selectively absorb the things that are beneficial to us and to eliminate those things that are bad for us. The first line of defense against unwelcome foreign invaders of the body are the 400 species of good bacteria, or probiotics, that live in the colon.
Bifodobacteria bifidum and lactobacillus acidophilus are two of the main strains of these good bacteria. They help balance the intestinal microflora by stopping or slowing the growth of harmful bacteria, promoting good digestion, boosting immune function and increasing resistance to infection.
Fructooligosaccharides are naturally occurring carbohydrates that cannot be digested or absorbed by humans but can support the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Arabinogalactan is an excellent source of dietary fiber that enhances beneficial gut flora and appears to act as a balancer in the immune system.
Putting it all together
All of these natural substances have been combined in our Digestion Support to support the four primary principles of good digestion - DEAN - and put you on the pathway to healing.
