7 Natural Products to Improve Digestion [Infographic]
Digestion is at the core of maintaining good health. As you provide your body with essential nutrients and it breaks them down into usable fuel for energy, you create a solid foundation for health. This graphic covers 7 different supplements that support the digestive system.
It’s Good to Break Down
We’re not talking about cars or machines here. We’re talking about digestion. Enzymes are specialized proteins that speed up normal, necessary reactions in the body. Digestive enzymes can help make digestion infinitely more efficient.
Proactazyme provides natural, plant-based enzymes that break down starches, proteins and fats. It assists the stomach and small intestines in breaking down food into smaller particles, thereby enhancing proper digestion and helping to eliminate gas, occasional bloating and occasional indigestion.
Contains the following enzymes:
- A blend of proteases and peptidase—breaks down protein
- Amylase, glucoamylase, malt diastase—digests starches (carbohydrates)
- Invertase and alphagalactosidase—simplifies sugars
- Lipase—breaks down fat into fatty acids and glycerides
Proactazyme features a base of herbs that support digestion, including beet root, dandelion, fennel, gentian and ginger. You know this product is working when you eat a big meal and don’t feel the after-effects.
Maintain Harmony in the Stomach
The stomach is home to a variety of living organisms, some of which can negatively alter normal balance. The effects of certain invaders, especially combined with hydrochloric acid, can be deleterious to the stomach lining and raise digestive-system issues.
Nature’s Sunshine scientists spent nearly two years formulating this product for the stomach. Gastro Health is a blend of licorice root extract, pau d’arco bark, clove flower, Indian elecampane root and capsicum fruit. Together these herbs aid digestion, soothe the stomach, and help minimize gastric heartburn, acid indigestion and occasional discomfort. Gastro Health helps you maintain critical balance.
Get Your Beneficial Bugs
Probiotics are healthful bacteria that perform a number of good and necessary functions in the body, including promoting immune system health, aiding in the absorption of vitamins, breaking down some foods, and more. Adding probiotics to the daily diet can pay huge dividends in maintaining smooth digestion.
This best-selling formula is a blend of four types of beneficial bacteria: Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. casei and Bifidobacterium longum.
Replenishing friendly bacteria can help:
- Support the digestive and intestinal systems
- Promote intestinal and respiratory health in children
- Improve immune system function
- Help maintain vaginal and urinary tract system health
- Help synthesize needed B vitamins
Getting extra quantities of friendly bacteria helps to rebalance the normal, healthy populations in the gut. It’s especially important to replenish probiotics after intestinal cleansing or any illness or medication that may harm this delicate population.
