If your digestive health is compromised, good overall health is simply not possible – regardless of what else you may do. You’ll know if your digestive system is working well by experiencing all of the following:

  • At least one and preferably two easy bowel movements a day. First one ideally within an hour after arising.
  • Firm but soft stools.
  • No indigestion, stomach or intestinal discomfort at any time.

If you have trouble with any of these three factors then, for the sake of your health it’s important to address them. If you don’t, you will be gradually and inadvertently poisoning yourself with ultimately dire consequences.

Decomposing food can become trapped in your digestive system and the poisons generated from this can leak through the intestinal lining into the blood stream, where they place enormous strain on your immune system as it is forced to ‘fight’ these poisons.

Tip: Immediately upon rising each morning drink one or two large glasses of warm (room temperature) PURE water. Do this BEFORE doing anything else at all. If you have any lemon, add a slice to the water. This is free and is the best and most natural way to kick start your digestive system into ‘gear’ and eliminate any constipation problems.

Prebiotics – Natural Vitamins To Help Digestion

Taking a probiotic each day is not the answer (unless you need a boost to your intestinal flora as a result of taking a course of antibiotics.) Diet and lifestyle changes and support to your natural flora is generally the best answer.

Our tip will certainly help your digestive health but most of us need a little extra support to help our digestive systems work efficiently. This is the reason we developed specialised digestion supplement Kiwi-Klenz. Kiwi-Klenz contains a potent extract of kiwifruit that promotes the growth of good gut flora and suppresses pathogens. It is also shown to help in the more effective digestion of proteins.

Candidiasis And Digestive Health

Candida albicans is a yeast that is naturally occurring in the body. However, when our digestive bacteria is not balanced as it should be, it creates an opportunity for candida to overgrow. Candidiasis is often an underlying cause of poor digestive health and can show itself in symptoms such as frequent bloating, stomach distension, constipation, sugar cravings and unexplained weight gain. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and suspect candidiasis, please try Advanced Candida Support.

The right type of Omega 3 fatty acids are also important for a healthy digestive system. This is why these are included in the recommendations below. Total Balance can also contribute to a healthy digestive system as can Zupafood ELITE or GREENZ.

Option 1

This is an effective, economical option if you want to see what natural digestion supplements could potentially do for you.

Advanced Candida Support

Option 2

Take the digestion supplements recommended in Option 1, PLUS any of the Omega 3 fish oils, PLUS any of the Total Balance range PLUS either Zupafood ELITE or Zupafood GREENZ.

*The daily dose can be increased to 4 or even 6 caps a day if necessary. It is a natural food and thus a higher dose is safe.
**Any of the Omega 3 fish oils are suitable.
