CONSIDERATIONS:

It may be helpful to consider the following questions:

1/ Do you consume enough fibre, fluids, vitamin C and magnesium?

2/ Could the levels of good bacteria in your gut have been compromised through stress or the use of medication for example (e.g. antibiotics)?

3/ Do you exercise on a regular basis?

THE KIT IN DETAIL:

OPTIBAC £9.99 (60 capsules) probiotic supplement - did you know that each of us has around 100,000,000,000,000 bacteria in our intestines?

That is 10 times the number of cells in our body, and can weigh around 1.5 kg! This 'microflora' consists of both friendly probiotic bacteria and bad pathogenic bacteria that co-exist in a complex ecosystem. Having a healthy balance of probiotics over pathogens plays an important role in digestion and immunity. However the balance of bacteria in the gut is fragile and can easily be disrupted by everyday factors such as stress, ageing, medication (e.g. antibiotics), environment and diet.

Sufficient numbers of good bacteria are essential for a healthy digestion and daily probiotic supplements replenish levels of good bacteria in the gut. This is the most important first step to improving the health of the digestive system

Contains: 5 billion good bacteria per daily dose. Take 2 capsules a day. 100% natural.

Please note: many yoghurt brands have probiotics added to their products however these would not be recommended in this case because dairy products actually slow the action of the gut. Probiotic supplements are free from milk and sugar and provide a higher and more therapeutic dose (billions of good bacteria instead of millions).

COLOCLEAR EXTRA £9.95 (90 capsules) helps to optimise comfortable bowel function, by providing a powerful blend of fibres plus the probiotic Lactobacillus sporogenes. In easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules. No added: Sugar, salt, wheat, gluten, lactose, dairy products, artificial preservatives, colours or flavourings.

Vegetarian and vegan.

Suggested intake:
Take 3 capsules 1-3 times a day.
 
Three capsules typically provide:
900mg High Lignan Flax, 150mg Fennel seed, 150mg Fenugreek seed, 90mg Liquorice root, 60mg Cloves, 30mg Aloe vera 200:1, 18 million* Lactobacillus sporogenes.            
*At the time of manufacture
 

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS:

- Ensure that you are eating a healthy diet rich in fibre.

- Consume plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (at least five portions a day), and their juices diluted with filtered or bottled water

- For additional fibre you might like to also consider:

HIGHER NATURE OMEGA EXCELLENCE Organic Sprouted Flax Seeds (finely milled to a coarse powder) high in dietary fibre which can be sprinkled onto food

- Eat wholegrain cereals, brown bread, brown pasta and brown rice. Try eating figs or prunes, which have a natural laxative effect.

- Increase your intake of all fluids - water, herbal teas and homemade juices.

- Ensure that as an adult you drink 8 - 10 glasses of quality water each day in addition to herbal tea and juices. Avoid caffeine drinks such as coffee, tea and cola, which are diuretics and dehydrate the body.

- Increase your consumption of foods rich in vitamin C - broccoli, parsley, kiwi fruit, citrus fruit, berries, peppers, blackcurrants, Brussels sprouts, papaya. You can also supplement with extra vitamin C – see Vitamin C 

- Increase your consumption of foods rich in magnesium - kiwi fruit, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, dried apricots and seafood. You can also supplement with extra magnesium – see Minerals 

- Essential fatty acids provide an important source of good oils. Fish oils and flax oils are both good sources – see Essential Fatty Acids
‘BARLEANS Organic Lignan Flax Oil’ has the added benefit of lignans (flax seed particles) which are a source of fibre

- Raw garlic helps to destroy harmful bacteria in the gut so try adding it to salad dressings and raw juices or to meals at the very last minute. If you are concerned about the smell of garlic on your breath take an odourless garlic supplement.

- Animal products - meat, cheese and milk slow down the action of the gut, so eat these in moderation.. Try using organic rice, oat or almond milk instead.

- Exercise - a good twenty-minute walk can really improve bowel mobility. Regular exercise can help avoid problems happening in the first place.
