Digestion Plus is a daily supplement which you take first thing in the morning. It contains probiotics and prebiotics to keep your gut healthy and enzymes to assist digestion.
Poor diet, processed foods, stress, lack of sleep, medicines, alcohol – all these things affect our gut health, which, in turn , can have a negative impact on our physical and mental well-being.
I take it everyday and love knowing that I’m helping my hard-working digestive system to keep healthy and balanced.
What is it?
Digestion Plus is a convenient 2-in-1 product to help support overall digestive health. The single strain of probiotic (Bacillus coagulans) is provided in a spore form.
Digestion Plus delivers ingredients to help support gastrointestinal health in a number of ways, prebiotics to support microflora, probiotics to help support micro floral balance which in turn supports many other crucial processes that occur in the GI tract; enzymes which help support the breakdown of dietary macronutrients like protein, carbohydrates, fats and more.
It’s like having a daily “spruce up” and refresh for your hard-working gut. Just think about all the stuff it has to deal with. A little TLC every day is just what it needs.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live, healthy bacteria naturally found in yogurts and other dairy products, and some fermented foods. The good bacteria found in probiotics is thought to help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut. One thing to consider with probiotics is that they are delicate, and therefore heat and stomach acid may kill them, so that less of them will reach to the lower intestine alive, where they are supposed to reside in. Probiotics add to the natural good bacteria lost due to contributing factors such as poor diet and stress. While probiotics have been shown to be effective in managing certain gastrointestinal conditions when consumed alone, adding prebiotics can promote good bacterial and confer some health benefits.
What are Prebiotics?
Probiotics introduce good bacteria into the digestive tract, prebiotics act as a fertilizer for existing good bacteria. Essentially the prebiotics feed the natural good bacteria in the digestive tract by acting as a ‘food’ for them (Food Research International, 2010).
By combining both probiotics and prebiotics together, there is a higher chance of multiplying and maintaining good bacteria in your gut.
What are the benefits of a combined prebiotic and probiotic intake?
When these are combined, they can help support the health of digestive and immune system, keeping your gut flora balanced and healthy. Digestion Plus is a combined Prebiotic and Probiotic, delivered in a form that makes it through to the small intestine. It also contains ensymes to assist with the breakdown and absorbtion of essential nutrients.
How does it work?
The spore format means that the probiotic makes it further into your digestive tract, without being destroyed by the acidity of the stomach. In fact, they are actually activated by the low pH levels in the stomach. The spore technology allows the probiotic to make it through to the duodenum of the small intestine, where they begin to colonize and support digestive health.
This means that a lower level of probiotic can have similar benefits as other products with higher cfu counts of probiotics that don’t have the capacity to survive the acidity of the stomach.The probiotic level in Digestions Plus is 100 million cfu (colony forming units) per serving. You might see higher counts in some other products, but the essential thing to know is how much actually makes it through the hostile environment of the stomach.
When and How?
Ideally, you want to make Digestion Plus the first thing that hits your stomach in the morning (apart from plain water). Try to take it 30-45 minutes before the first meal of the day to get the maximum benefits. Mix it with a m=small amount of cold or warm water and drink it down immediatley. When you add Digestion Plus to water the probiotic counts and enzyme activity levels will start to decrease so we recommend you consume it within 15 – 30 mins of mixing.
You can mix your DP with your protein shake but, again, don’t let it sit around for too long or you lose the maximum benefits.
