Nutrition Alerts: Digestive Health

digestive health

Are you having trouble digesting foods like certain whole grains, fruits, or vegetables such as cabbage or beans? Do you feel bloated, have burning like fire in your stomach, or some other kind of discomfort after you eat?

Is constipation part of your life? Do you have gastrointestinal problems? Stomach cramps? Irritable bowel syndrome? Other digestive problems? How can natural solutions help your digestive system work better?

There are all-natural supplements that can help, and the good news is that they don’t have side effects. In fact, they have side benefits.

Let’s take a look at the benefits of 4 different all-natural digestive supplements:

Probiotics and Prebiotics

Some nutrition alerts that signal you may need a probiotic or prebiotic: flatulence or bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, stomach ache, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, Colitis, Crohn’s disease, Candida, Acid reflux, taking antibiotics or steroids, low fiber diet or poor diet, and bottle fed babies.

The benefits you get from Shaklee Optiflora probiotic and prebiotic include: promote colon health, keep undesirable bacteria in check, help urinary tract infections, help with ear infections, strengthen immune system, counteract the side effects of antibiotics and chemo-therapy, and protect out of country travelers.

Natural Enzymes

50 million Americans don’t produce enough enzymes to digest dairy products, and not being able to eat them can hurt their nutritional status. If you have flatulence, gas, belching, burping, stomach pain, cramps, diarrhea, bloating, indigestion, over-eating “stuffed” feeling, frequent use of antacids or lactose intolerance, you may benefit from natural digestive enzymes.

Shaklee natural enzymes supplement EZGest eliminates discomfort from gas-producing foods, breaks down protein, fats and carbohydrates into easily absorbed components, improves digestion of milk sugars found in dairy products, and enables nutrients to be absorbed into the blood stream.

Senna Leaf

A mild cleansing action may be what your body needs to promote regularity. Your diet may contribute to elimination problems, and if you aren’t able to adjust it enough to get results – you may want to consider an all-natural aid. Senna leaf is an herb that has been used for more than 3,500 years as a natural laxative.

The sennal leaf in Shaklee’s Herblax can help you improve regularity, reduce body odor, relieve constipation, detoxify, relieve hemorrhoids or boils, improve bad breath, and help headaches and acne.

Peppermint Ginger

Both peppermint and ginger were mentioned in the very first recorded herbal texts and were used extensively by early cultures. If you have nausea, vomiting, indigestion, stomach ache, ulcer, heartburn, or food poisoning – peppermint and ginger can help. It calms and soothes and has no side effects.

Another good use is if you are going on a cruise or other boat and get sea sick or you get car sick or air sick. The nausea that is related to motion sickness can be soothed with Shaklee’s all-natural peppermint and ginger stomach soothing supplement.

Shaklee Soothing Stomach Complex contains peppermint that is a source of menthol and ginger – both which have been used for their soothing effects on the stomach. Also included in the formula is anise and fennel. Everyone I know that tries this product loves it – because it works so well and the relief you get is such a good feeling!
