Lifestream Bowel Biotics Fibre + Enzymes is a completely natural formula that contains a potent blend of psyllium fibre, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes and herbs to supports digestive and bowel health while aiding regular bowel movements.
A diet high in processed foods, ill health, digestive issues, and even the natural aging process can cause the number of natural digestive enzymes in the body to decline. This can lead to bloating, a slow transit time of poorly digested waste matter from the bowels, damage to the gut flora and poor absorption of nutrients from food.
Psyllium husk is approximately 2/3 soluble fibre (helps to bind with toxins and waste) and 1/3 insoluble fibre (creates bulk and helps to move waste through the bowel) making an ideal mix of both types of beneficial daily fibre. When water is added to psyllium husks, a soft gel forms and this results in softer and smoother waste elimination and encourages the presence of natural bacteria in the bowel.
Inulin is a naturally occurring prebiotic, or oligosaccharide (several simple sugars linked together), that is resistant to digestion in the stomach and intestines. It is metabolised in the colon by bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. Inulin stimulates the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria while simultaneously reducing the population of unfriendly bacteria in the colon. Recently, studies have shown regular use of inulin supports healthy fat levels around internal organs.
Probiotics are live microbial organisms that populate the gut (such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria) that are beneficial to health. ‘Good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria are continually competing with each other in the gut and it is now clearly recognised that long term health of the bowels and overall wellbeing can depend on maintaining a favourable balance of friendly bacteria in the colon.
The natural digestive enzymes included in the formula are: Protease, Betaine HCl (from beets), Ginger Root, Papain, Peppermint Leaf, Fennel Seed and Bromelain. These digestive enzymes help to break down the food we eat and support the digestion and nutrient absorption process.
As part of a healthy balanced diet, Lifestream Bowel Biotics Fibre + Enzymes helps to ensure optimum digestion of food, regular bowel movements and to maintain bowel health – essential for overall health and well-being.
