Focus on... Digestive Health

I was talking to someone last night who was suffering from physical discomfort, pain and bloating in the stomach and gut. We talked about their diet and the amount of liquid they generally take in and it came to light that they were eating very little fibre (fruit and veg). This puts an incredible amount of pressure on the intestinal system as fibre acts as the gut’s little scrubbers keeping the area clean and free from build-up which can cause inflammation and may lead to more serious problems. They were also not drinking much during the day. Not drinking enough liquid during the day, and especially water, puts a lot of pressure on the kidneys as they require water throughout the day to help flush the system. If you suffer from lower back pain, as this person occasionally does, this may actually be your kidneys trying to tell you something!

I work with a supplement company called Nature's Sunshine who provide really high quality supplements. They don't sell to health food shops but only to practitioners. If you think that your diet and lifestyle may be putting pressure on your digestive system and kidneys, this is what I would suggest for you from Nature’s Sunshine:


Studies have shown that our diet should contain more vegetables, grains and fruit. So are you getting enough? Fibre is an important part of a healthy diet but its not always easy to obtain a much daily fibre as you need. There are two products I would recommend.

LOCLO makes it easy to get essential fibre into the diet. This product contains fibre from five different sources: psyllium hulls, apple fibre, acacia gum, guar gum and oat bran.

Each 9.5 gram serving provides 4 grams of fibre, soluble and insoluble, from five different sources, and it tastes great. In addition LOCLO contains the nutritious SynerPro concentrate base, which includes powders of Broccoli flowers, Turmeric root, Rosemary leaf, Red Beetroot, Tomato fruit, Carrot root, Cabbage leaf, Chinese Cabbage leaf, hesperidin, grapefruit bioflavonoid and orange bioflavonoid.

LOCLO is sodium free and rich in Potassium.

Just one scoop of TNT a day helps to boost your daily vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein intake, in a delicious orange flavoured drink.

Benefits of TNT

  • 18 different sources of soluble and insoluble fibre

  • 12 vitamins and 11 minerals essential for healthy growth and good health

  • Contains Vitamin C to help protect against free radical damage, maintain the normal functioning of the immune system and nervous system, and normal collagen formation. Increases iron absorption and contributes towards a reduction in tiredness and fatigue

  • Antioxidants – contains beta-carotene, lycopene and other carotenoids

  • Has a great orange taste that the whole family can enjoy

  • Contains no added sugar

PROBIOTIC Good digestion is the key to good health, and probiotics help to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora. Use them after your regular nutritional whole-body cleanse, and particularly after a course of antibiotics that destroy the good and the bad bacteria in your body. PRO B11 is a unique high potency formula of eleven strains of bacteria.

Benefits of PRO B11

  • A high potency, multi strain supplement that provides almost 12 billion bacteria per serving

  • The eleven strains of bacteria in Pro B11 ensure you replenish your gut with a variety of beneficial flora

  • Lactobacillus strains release unique enzymes which help to break down larger milk proteins for absorption

  • Contain Bifidobacterium strains: longum, infantis and bifidum, which help to create B vitamins

Also, to help you drink water you could use Liquid Chlorophyll. Nature's Sunshine's Liquid Chlorophyll is naturally flavoured with spearmint oil and can be taken throughout the day, leaving the breath minty fresh. It's ideal for everyday use, and is a valued companion to any whole body nutritional cleanse programme.

Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the sun’s energy in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll performs metabolic functions in plants such as respiration and growth. The mulberry and the alfalfa plant, from which Nature’s Sunshine’s chlorophyll comes, are excellent sources of chlorophyll.

Preservative Free Liquid Chlorophyll has a paraben-free formula that uses all-natural vegetable source glycerine. Glycerine is not a true preservative, but a stabilising component that acts to inhibit the growth of microbes.
