The Science of Digestion
The modern lifestyle brings a lot of benefits, but a healthy gut isn't always one of them. Almost everything about it tends to upset the delicate balance in the gut, from sugar and smoking to stress, alcohol, antibiotics and lack of sleep.
Even worse, the refined foods we eat are particularly damaging to the gut as they lack fibre to feed the good bacteria and are high in sugar and damaged fats to promote inflammation.

Kiwi-Klenz - for digestive support
In a perfect world, we'd consume the perfect balance of food each day.
In the real world, we sometimes need an extra boost that only a targeted product can give. That's where Kiwi-Klenz comes in.
It uses kiwifruit - a digestive powerhouse naturally high in prebiotics and soluble fibre in a single, convenient supplement, so you get all weight loss, immunity and digestion support you need.
Xtend-Life's Kiwi-Klenz supports digestion in four ways:
- Rich in prebiotics to help feed good bacteria. Has been shown to increase the amount of Lactobacillus acidophilus by 21 times.
- Full of phenolics which discourage the growth of bad bacteria.
- Rich in enzymes to help better digest and absorb the food we eat. Studies have shown kiwifruit powder helps digest proteins like beef, tofu and cow’s milk two or even three times faster.
- High in soluble fibre to keep things moving
