IF YOU’VE spent some time reading the posts on this site, you know that I’m a big cheerleader for cleansing and digestion. Way too many people in the Industrialized World have sluggish digestion and elimination, which may contribute to chronic disease states. Our food is over-cooked and over-processed, and that kills the natural enzymes in many foods that aids digestion. Not to mention the lack of fiber.
Add to this our proclivity to take antibiotics at the first sign of the flu. Antibiotics kill the beneficial bacteria in your gut that help prevent sluggish digestion. So, it’s a really good idea to use enzymes, probiotics, fibers and intestinal cleansers after your done with antibiotics.
There’s a long list of supplements to consider. I power up on various enzymes, probiotics, herbal cleansers and the like during the two or three times a year I undertake a cleansing program, but these few I take regularly for maintenance:
Pro-Dophilus with FOS Researchers have found that altered levels of acidity and alkalinity in the gastrointestinal tract, often due to our acid-based diets (meat and grains) and overuse of antibiotics, can disrupt the ecology of the bowel environment, and thereby affect the type, quantity and behavior of microorganisms essential for bowl health. Pro-Dophilus Contains 3.4 billion friendly lactic bacteria per gram.
Vital Enzymes Enzymes are central to proper digestion. Without sufficient enzyme levels, our bodies could not absorb all of the nutrients in the food we eat. Vital Enzymes™ contains active ingredients that help your body digest dietary proteins, sugars, carbohydrates, fiber, and fats within the gastrointestinal system more easily.
